Great, great, city

The W was very clean. The staff was very helpful.Very centrally located. We love to hike the cities we stay in and found we could get to any of the major attractions. The major hike was to Mission Hills and Olde town. Any of the other attractions were an enjoyable walk.

W was very nice

Was very nice. Service was on point and friendly. Staff made great recommendations for places to eat nearby. Acura car service was a very nice touch. Room was a touch on the small side compared to the W in Hollywood, but very modern and elegant. They made the space work! We love the scent that was always present in the hotel.
