nicest hotel in Westwood

Cons: - I asked for a room located in a quiet area, since I needed to study and sleep early. They placed me in a room that was directly across from a church that had bells chiming on the hour until 10pm (that's music + 10 long chimes at 10pm). - No blackout shades. Light peeps through the installed white blinds and very see-through white curtains. - AC/heat does not work. I turned it up to 80F since I was freezing (previously set to 70F), but nothing happened. I could also hear the fan blow all of the time in the living room are of the guest suite, even though I had set the thermostat to "auto" NOT "on all the time." - One of the bath towels had stains. Ew. - The only way to get to the lobby or second floor is by using the elevator. There's no option to take the stairs to either of those levels, stairs end in emergency exits only. - A plumber should fix the exposed sink and shower piping as some of the decorative faucet connections were loose and/or rusty. Pros: - Complimentary Dasani bottled water and apples. - Complimentary headphones in gym. - Overall, quiet and clean. - Complimentary lobby internet can somewhat reach the 4th floor rooms. - Extremely enthusiastic and eager valets. - Recycling bin in guest room encourages guests to recycle, YAY! - Decent room lighting in both office and bedroom areas of guest suite.

Back at the W

I have stayed at W's Westwood location so many times over the last five years, I can't even count them. The proximity to UCLA has always been the big draw for me as my husband spent many weeks in UCLA Hospital. He has recently passed, but I found myself exhausted after flying into LAX after a business trip and booked a night to rest. The staff is always welcoming, the rooms quiet and comfortable. The bars and restaurants are great. I just have nothing bad to say about this hotel.

disappointing

Very uneven staff; some excellent, especially valets and some of front desk. Others seemed like they'd never been trained. Rooms are of a holiday Inn level with a pretension at being something else. furnishings, fixtures and bad are not best quality. Pool is much smaller than the advert leads you to believe. Location is a plus.

The hotel is fine, staff also (except at swiming pool), but please target other guests!

The staff is fine, ready to help and pleasant, but the swimming pool experience totally destroys the image of the hotel (and of the W brand by the way). I decided to go to LA, not to a party hotel in Vegas, so I do not expect to find people at the swimming pool who are not even guests and who behave like cheap Vegas visitors (eating pizza from a paper plate seated in the pool, really?). Plus as a guest of the hotel I have not even been able to use the pool as I wanted as it was overcrowded. I even had to finally remove myself someone else's dirty pool towel as they had abandoned it there and the pool girl was nowhere to be seen! Rooms are decently nice for that kind of hotel, lack a little 'freshness'. I wanted to try the W brand to see how it would compare to Kimpton that is usually my favorite, and Kimpton is definitely one step higher.

Great hotel that is walking distance to UCLA. The rooms we're very comfortable and quiet for being in the city.

Nice hotel, OK room

The hotel was very nice, the staff were VERY friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the hotel was very full, partly because an NBA team was staying there. I ended up with one of the less than spectacular rooms, right across from the elevator. The only real problem was slight noise from outside the room. You could sometimes hear people getting on and off the elevator, and there was some mystery whooshing sound from above. All in all, i'd definitely stay there again, but wouldn't take a room ending in "00"!

The good and the bad

We arrived at the W hoping to be able to park in an outside lot to avoid the Valet Parking fee ($32 for overnight guests); unfortunately, there wasn't a parking lot nearby. Second, the University Religious Conference Center was located right behind our bedroom so we could hear the students talking loudly and playing their music. In addition to the noise outside, we could hear guests going on and off the elevator in addition to the toilet flushing from the room above us. On the flip side, the hotel is very posh. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of our accommodation and was pleased with the free car service as well.

Take advantage of the free one-way car service that the W has to offer. Just note that you'll have to find your own transportation back to the hotel.

Visit to Westwood W

Airconditioning vents and service not working well. Vents were cleaned but room still too hot. Seemed to be a problem as guests had fans in their rooms

Friendly staff

Location was great for my purpose, and I like the hotel aside from the few gripes that follow. Other guests crashing about at 3 am was not so great. Also, when I raised the temperature in the room it caused the temp to fall. I had to turn if off to keep from freezing. The size of the sink in the bathroom was annoying - it felt kind of like I was back on the airplane.
