I am writing this post while in the hotel room. I have checked in to what seems to be a motel. There is only one receptionist who has to deal with a crowd of strange people coming from in and out. No security on doors. Anyone can enter this hotel. I was actually asked by what seemed to be a hooker to press an elevator floor for her since she didn’t have an access card. The hotel elevators and lobby smells weed. The carpets are unbelievably dusty, the door hangers and mirrors all have hand prints which clearly indicates the lack of care by cleaning staff. Very concerning during COVID. The hotel guests are questionable. It’s obvious it’s frequented by hookers, drug addicts and wild party goers. The room furniture is old, damaged and used. The worst happened when I discovered the bathroom. The toilet cover had dry pee on it and pubic hair! There were more hair on the sink. The bed sheets had small stains on them and the carpet was dirty. I was so paranoid I spent the first few hours disinfecting the room instead of relaxing before my 16 hour flight and after having traveled 12 hours. There is a clear health and safety hazard particularly given the current pandemic conditions. I would like to bring my feedback to the attention of the hotel manager and be considered for an immediate full refund. As an elite member of Marriott, I feel appalled and extremely disappointed in the standards of this hotel. Read less

Having not stayed with a W hotel for well over a decade I decided to give the W Hollywood a try since I was only in LA for one night and how bad could it be. Rumors that the W hotel chain has really lost its touch with what is original purpose which was to be “whatever, whenever” type of experience. Suffice it to say they have gone all the way back to the beginning of the alphabet starting with a huge letter F. First it was the valet attendant who was talking to a person at the valet for the residences ? and of course I Had to drive off property turned back around go back into the valet and park myself in front of the main entrance for him to realize that I was a hotel guest and wanted to check in and park my car. With a wave of his hand I was instructed to bring my car to him at the end of the parking lot where I was able to give him my keys and he apologized saying he didn’t really realize I was trying to park my car at the hotel? The next W wonderful experience was trying to check into the hotel where I was greeted rather abruptly by a young lady at the front desk where I gave her my information. I had purchased a hotel room through Priceline and nowhere on Priceline or in the hotels webpage does it state the deposit for incidentals is upwards of $250. I wasn’t anticipating such a high incidentals deposit and I asked if there’s a manager or someone I can speak with about possibly paying partial cash and partial credit card etc. etc. and if I did not have the full 250 is there another number that they would be OK with since I am only here for one night and it’s not a special room or anything of that sort. I was told and I quote “ no there’s No one available and that there was nothing I can do except come up with $250 or I cannot stay there” . Since it was late and I didn’t really feel like going back online trying to find a hotel I was able to come up with the 200 split cards and check in., I was given the key card to the room and was told the elevators are this direction ( pointing to the wrong direction where the elevators were not) . Now this was a Thursday night at the beginning of the second lockdown in Los Angeles the hotel was empty and it was a little stressful both I’m sure for the hotel staff as well as myself the guest but I decided to persevere and try and make the best of this hopefully something will be redeeming about the W Hotel and the situation would not be a total loss. W wrong again! The room was mediocre the amenities were almost non-existent I think there was one shampoo and one conditioner no soap and three towels. Check out was uneventful And it was a little unnerving as it felt like the hotel was not just at 0 occupancy but completely deserted I was able to find a valet person and I retrieve my car settled the parking with one of the two credit cards used for deposit and return home to Palm Springs. Fast forward to today when I contact my bank to verify that there had been no charges for the W Hotel and the Incidentals deposit had been transferred back to my bank I was told by the bank that no the hotel actually did not Refund the deposit and the money has been taken out of my account permanently. I now have to go through the nightmare of trying to get ahold of a accounting person or manager or somebody who will be able to adjust this and have them refund to my bank the deposit back I also have to dispute the transaction with my bank and deal with a possible overdraft charge etc. This is the W worst experience. I would never stay at a hotel W again. Read less

Knowing COVID should change normal expectations, I’ll still give you the good and bad.

Knowing COVID should change normal expectations, I’ll still give you the good and bad. Bad: as a gold bonvoy member, I’m eligible for room upgrades when available but like all my other stays, it wasn’t available. Like others have said, it has sort of a low class vibe with lots of barely clad groups of young women hanging around. No view from room just brick wall. Beds are basically mattresses on the ground sitting in a bed tray. So low you can’t just sit and hang out comfortably. The lights are so modern they are extremely hard to figure out how to turn on and off. No coffee in room but that’s due to COVID that they removed that amenity. No daily maid service either again due to COVID. Your room is only made up and cleaned if you stay 3 days or more as they do it every third day. This was not communicated until I called to see why my room wasn’t made up by 1pm. Expensive valet parking at $55 per night. No good food options but again probably due to COVID. The good. Beds are comfortable. Bathroom clean and well appointed. Need room key to use elevators to room. Pool is lovely and I believe cabanas are free with a first come first serve and is limited to guests of hotel only. Bartender at pool very friendly even though a margarita and a can of beer costs $24 before tip. Valets are very friendly and quick. Fine for a weekend getaway. Read less

I happened to get lucky regarding my timing when coming to LA. I arrived about a week before things got real bad for California with Covid back towards the end of June and early July. Coming from NYC where things were real bad in March and April, it was a relief to get away for a week or so. Having stayed at other W hotel locations around the world, I'm a fan of the brand. As for this location, it was relatively empty throughout the day at least when I was there. We went up to the pool a few days and there were no more than 5 other people up there. When it comes to safety and cleaning precautions, 95% of people in the hotel were wearing masks and the hotel for the most part looked clean. Some sections of the hotel were closed in an effort to limit gatherings. The only knock I have on this location, and it's something I've seen in other reviews as well. It seems that this location has become a hangout or meetup for wannabe Instagram influencers and recording artists. It seemed like every night like clockwork around 11:30pm/Midnight, cars would pull up in front of the hotel and people would pile out to have a party. I would go out occasionally at night to smoke a cigarette, and without fail dozens of people were out there at all hours until the morning. I do understand that this W location has residences attached to the hotel, so it is possible that these people live there, but it's most likely that they don't. Other than that issue, my stay at the W Hollywood was a pleasant one and I would definitely return. Read less
