Everyone says the "W" hotels are cool. So it's like the Emperor's New Clothes - no one wants to be the one to say "I don't see it."
The lobby is ugly - industrial concrete and low dim lighting, kinda like a parking garage in terms of warmth. Corridors are dim, and so are the rooms. Low lighting may be appealing in a club, but I want some decent lighting in a hotel room. Dark carpet and black fixtures add to the vampire feeling.
Bed is comfy; bathroom has only an open shower (cold) with no bath. A vanity with magnifying lighted mirror (didn't work) sits just outside the bathroom.
Housekeeping was abysmal. They made the bed and that was it. No attempt to wipe down the bathroom counter, push in a chair, or neaten up at all. Saved me the trouble of tipping but it was a drag to come back to a messy room. Maybe that's part of being a "cool" hotel.
$30 per day for valet parking; $23 if you park your own ride. Friendly doormen. Easy to walk to a number of good restaurants close by, and easy freeway access. I like the location but will look for a less grungy place in midtown on my next visit.
