But a little R and R was needed; the destination was the W Hotel in Hollywood. It is just off Hollywood Blvd were there is plenty of culture, including the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Pantages Theatre. About a mile west are Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and the Kodak Theatre. The hotel is located in the virtual heart of Hollywood.
Join me, let’s take a tour
Love the Hollywood signage in the back ground
It was a funky and contemporary and slick place to visit.
Look, the Book “A Thousand Dogs”, what a nice indirect welcome for Sugar and Spice.
The contrasting colors, patterns, and shiny components of the W lobby offer plenty of visual drama.
The Check-In Hostess matched her surrounding. She had a divine necklace from Macy’s.
The pillows in the Lounge, I really want these for my interior decor. I really do.
A flower arangement at check in – like a soft snowball.
The Living Room right off the lobby has tall ceilings, a huge spiral staircase, gorgeous chandelier, with couches and pillows that make you feel at home.
Elevators that will not ‘lift’ without your room key. Security for the Celeb’s.
Relaxing color choices embrace you while strolling to your room.
Bejewelled peepholes on all the doors, “I see You”.
A stylish honor bar with top notch drinkies.
Let’s look inside.
I am impressed.
Premium call Labels. 10 Cane Rum, sure sign of excellence, it’s a hard one to find.
Conundrum and VC, I think I’m going to like it here.
Only in a Hollywood honor bar.
Hip messages label the necessities, “Keep Your Cool” for water.
“Back Up Plan” for the spare toilet paper roll.
“Watch Your Tongue” for stationary.
There was a special box to put all your important everything. Underneath the leaflet is a Geek Squads dream,
every type of technological charging hook up found in North America.
There was an inviting choice of pillow fabrics at the window seat. Great view as well.
Hollywood First Presbyterian Church below the Griffith Observatory
The rooms were on the small side but well adorned, with low-lying beds.
Cozy and Clean, the beds provided a great nights sleep. Think firm but supple
The closet was also on the small side.
Bath room on the small side too, but the bath products were from Bliss, that trade off will work.
After reviewing the menu of services, a spa visit was going to be scheduled.
Let’s order Room Service, oh look, I could have ordered for the Beagle Brigade.
This is what we ordered instead. The Macaroni Gratin with ham and diced onion hit the spot.
The Onion Soup Gratinee was a show stopper
Bread and Butter, so much for watching those carbs.
Cheese Plate, tiny figs included
Now that is what I’mma talking about. A hamburger with Onion Rings.
The staff was helpful and even brought us a bottle of
Now let’s grab one of these and go check out the roof top pool
The pool was a hot spot. A definite to see and be seen.
Who wants to go for a swim?
There are many private cabanas for private people
Showers to rinse off the Chlorine after a swim, that Blond hair needs stay clear of unsightly green tones.
An elite larger caban, upstairs away from the rest of the pool crowd.
A pool side ice tea awaits you
Now where did I put my sunscreen?
The fire-pit was unique, tiny crystals caught my eye. A chic, fun lounge area perfect for a night cap after a night on the town.
Absolute Glee Cocktail
It was a trendy and stylish place in the heart of Hollywood. I felt glamorous there…who wouldn’t? From the moment you pull your car into the valet under 1000’s of little white lights, you feel embraced and know you are somewhere special. Sigh, tiny white lights at night soothe the soul.
