West Hollywood is home to different types of hotels including accommodation which combines traditional luxury and a boutique element with “lifestyle” hotels in unique neighborhoods. In fact, West Hollywood first defined the “boutique hotel” with the origins of that lodging category in 1996.

Its present hotel options cover a variety of styles including game-changing retail/residential/hotel complexes, luxury urban resorts, and several other lodging types.

Visitors to West Hollywood hotels can enjoy everything from rooftop pool venues, private event spaces, and professional party planning, to relaxing spas, garden oasis, first-class fitness sessions, and state-of-the-art technology, to glamorous cocktail parties, and a ballroom with city views, etc.

West Hollywood hotels offer stunning vistas – the Hollywood Hills, Sunset Strip, and Downtown Los Angeles. Their menus offer the best in local and regionally sourced food; guests can enjoy sumptuous fine dining or delicious casual meals.

There has been a recent increase in the numbers of hotels in the Sunset Strip area. Extra lodging brings more people – and even more vitality – to the neighborhood. Of course, the West Hollywood market can always handle and absorb new supply.

The Strip has adapted to reflect modern times and today’s influences. Sunset Boulevard is experiencing a cultural rebirth, but there is an ever-present nod to its outstanding history; music lovers can still find a legendary “rock ‘n’ roll” hotel.

There is no doubt, however, that the billions of dollars put into recent real estate developments in the vicinity have definitely made quite a positive economic impact. There has been an influx of restaurants, apartments, and hotels into We-Ho. As well, this famous area has become revitalized with a new energy and diverse character.

The West Hollywood hotel sector saw a 15.1% rise in 2018 revenue reaching a total of $219 million. Overall demand was up by 13.5% in 2018 over the previous year.

During 2019, the average room rate in West Hollywood was more than $300 a night; this rate has grown steadily especially within the past five years. Hotel room tax generates the largest single revenue for the City of West Hollywood.

Travelers to Southern California (especially to Los Angeles) like to have their base in West Hollywood. After all, Beverly Hills (with its world-class shopping) is the We-Ho adjacent community.

Of course, there are also the beaches; tourists can get to the beaches of Venice, Santa Monica, Manhattan, and Malibu in just 20 minutes.

Not to mention the Hollywood attractions; the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Mann’s Chinese Theater are only two miles to the east.

Visitors can easily access LA’s gourmet dining and nightlife, as well as its fashion, art, culture, and entertainment – and just all the excitement and opportunities the nearby City of Angels has to offer everyone.

Since West Hollywood is in such a prime location situated between Beverly Hills and Hollywood, its visitors can easily take in the evolving LA scene. Yet you can always find a touch of Old Hollywood glamour in West Hollywood with its overall vibe, splendid architecture, classic appeal, and timeless attraction.

The West Hollywood neighborhood has its own local attractions including superb dining, charming shops, boutique stores, vintage spots, a design center, and much more. The spotlight always shines on this fabled district.

West Hollywood allows visitors to enjoy everything LA has to offer, but We-Ho has its own unique identity and one-of-a-kind experiences for travelers.

Within West Hollywood’s chic and charming hotels, tradition and style blend together creating a harmonious space.

As they enjoy personalized service, their guests can also savor the sights, sounds, and tastes of these local gems that offer a global experience of the highest standards.
