A trippy psychedelic gentle installation by British isles artist Anthony James greets you in the entrance, and outside of that is a extremely welcoming and thoughtful check out-in team – just one of whom directed me to the ‘lifts’ relatively than ‘elevators’ when he detected my English accent.
Right after that, it was up to my home which was a contact on the smaller facet at about 330 square feet, but the design decisions are truly exclusive. Rooms are decked out with Hollywood Regency-design home furniture with pops of electric powered blue and gold.

The hotel calls it “a modern day nod to West Hollywood’s artwork deco roots” and it is really nailed it.
I had in-room breakfast two times in a row.

The hotel’s locale is fantastic, perched proper in the centre of West Hollywood, and suitable throughout the avenue from The Comedy Retailer.
In phrases of downsides, we struggled to come across any – on the other hand we did see some guest reviews that complained that some Sunset Boulevard-struggling with rooms can be noisy at moments.
