The W Westwood – Near UCLA

Great hotel suites. 650 sq feet with 2 flat screen t.vs. Nice pool area, and on property spa.

“W” stands for Wow! The W is fast becoming my favorite SPG brand.  I was here for a business networking and training event and really not familiar with this particular brand.  I’ve stayed at the W in Atlanta (review to come) and honestly thought it was nice, but I wouldn’t stay there again.

This hotel was NICE!  I got my platinum upgrade and they put me in the Spectacular Suite.  It has a HUGE living area (see pics below) and separate bedroom.  Its 650 sq feet with this huge L shaped couch that was really comfortable.  It had large flat screen t.v , a small glass desk and small minibar in the living room.  The room was well lit and had a bank of windows that you could adjust how much light was coming in by adjusting the wooden plantation shutters.  I LOVE plantation shutters, want them in my own house but they can be a bit pricey .

The bedroom wasn’t really large, but it was comfortable.  It had a large built-in dresser and flat screen t.v.  As always the bed was very comfortable.  Even though this was a suite, the bathroom was kind of small.  Not complaining.  I loved how large the main living space was.

The restaurant was good but a bit pricey.  I went in and just had wine and an appetizer since the deal i booked included a food credit.

You have to valet your car, there is very limited street parking and you can waste a lot of time trying to find it.  You also have to pay for internet.

Overall, this is a great hotel.  The room was so comfortable I really didn’t want to attend the mixer!  Staying in, ordering pizza and watching a movie with co-workers would have been a lot of fun.

W actaully stands for their level of service.  “Whatever, Whenever”.  You can really ask them to get you anything you want (as long as its legal) and they will get it for you.   If I ever have another function in Westwood, this will be my place to stay!
