Whether you choose to vacation–or staycation–during the holidays, the W Los Angeles has something for you!
During a recent media trip, I got a chance to check out the hotel and all it has to offer. And now I can’t wait to go back!
The W is located in Westwood, just steps away from Westwood Village, the Hammer Museum and the Geffen Playhouse, and the W has a complimentary Acura car service (which means if you want to go exploring, you don’t have to deal with parking- or driving- a big plus in LA!)
There’s also plenty to do at the hotel itself! The W is home to the BLISS spa, which offers dozens of treatments for men and women. I indulged in the spa’s signature Triple Oxygen Facial, which includes a targeted peel, energizing enzyme pack and three forms of skin-brightening oxygen. As the brochure says, it really is “like a breath of fresh air for your face!”
The W Los Angeles also has an amazing restaurant- NINETHIRTY. Executive Chef Dakota Weiss (who is a contestant on Bravo’s Top Chef Texas) has whipped up an incredible menu. I tried the steak frites (yummy!) and our group shared the charred broccoli, sweet potato fries and “french onion” mac n’ cheese (also yummy)! The desserts were also delicious!
Luckily the W has a fitness center (SWEAT) to work off all that food! The hotel also partners with FITiST to offer fitness classes with celebrity trainers (like Kit Rich, who energized me even though I thought I was going to pass out!)
The W Los Angeles is also one of the few places in Southern California where you can ice skate outside in 70-degree weather! Each holiday season, the W LA’s WET pool deck is transformed into CHILL, a winter wonder lounge complete with an eco-friendly hybrid rink, ice bar and stylish cabanas designed by Z Gallerie.
Is it any wonder I want to go back???
