Just off the historic intersection of Hollywood and Vine and above a busy metro station, the W Hollywood is ultramodern and outfitted for the wired traveler. Party people will enjoy the central location, the new outdoor lobby bar, and the rooftop pool deck. The lobby received a generous makeover in 2015, keeping fresh the glitter and mod accents that signal to travelers they've arrived at one of Hollywood's "it" destinations. The technology in the rooms is au courant; HD flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, dimmers on most lights, and easy access to electrical outlets. Cushioned window seats and super-comfortable low-rise platform beds with petal-soft duvets set the rooms apart from the usual. Delphine, the hotel's airy restaurant, is a friendly brasserie serving California cuisine. The all-white Bliss spa has a small sauna, steam showers, and a well-trained staff. A real treat: Bliss spa products are in the rooms, too.
