Gimme a W

Capital W

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.

Cabana by Daly Genik

The highlight on the rooftop pool deck is definitely these cool cabanas by Daly Genik.

Hollywood for the Holidays

And, of course, the view. Hollywood for the holidays.

Motif over the lobby bar

I got to check out some stuff inside, too, like a few of the rooms and the lobby bar.

View of the Pantages from the VIP suite

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.

Fiberoptic tangle

It kinda looks beautiful just like this, don’t you think?

We’ll be having a de LaB there when it opens next month, so be sure to sign up for our mailing list! More photos here.
