I stayed at the Andaz West Hollywood on recommendation of a friend who stayed there when it first opened. They go to LA every year and always stay there, so I decided to try it out for my business trip.
You can't really beat the view from AWH - the rooftop pool is AMAZING!! I was jet-lagged so went up to the pool as soon as it opened at 6 AM and took in the beautiful view. You can see downtown LA in the distance, and Hollywood Hills was literally in the background. As the sun came up from the mountains, it shone on the rest of LA and it was surreal to be in such a busy city, but wake up to the peacefulness of Sunset Blvd.
The room itself was very spacious, but could see that it was already getting a bit old and worn down. The furniture in the room did not seem to be very high end for a hotel of this caliber, and the windows were terrible; I was on the 3rd floor and heard every car that drove by on the busy strip.
I'm not sure if the hotel is still worth the value that I paid to stay there. Although it was nice, it didn't wow me. I may try The Standard down street next time in town.
