The new W Hollywood Hotel & Residences is about a month from being open. I wrote about it for Dwell back in June (and rode out an earthquake during that tour). Last week, I got to sneak inside with some of the architects.
The highlight on the rooftop pool deck is definitely these cool cabanas by Daly Genik.
And, of course, the view. Hollywood for the holidays.
I got to check out some stuff inside, too, like a few of the rooms and the lobby bar.
The rooms closer to the Boulevard are better. This is the unbelievable view from one of the VIP suites.
But I was most fascinated watching these guys hang the Swarovski chandelier.
It kinda looks beautiful just like this, don’t you think?
