Grit and glamour

Setting

Sunset heights

On the site of the House of Blues, in Los Angeles’ most musical corner, Pendry West Hollywood is as melodic as ever, singing a merry tune of Wolfgang Puck dining spots, day-bed-lined rooftop pools, late-night bars and a homage-paying live-music venue where local stars like to come and strum. If you’re thirsty and a soft drink won’t do, take a $30 token along to the Moët-stocked vending machine – you might just select one of the lucky bottles, which get you fizz and a free night. Some of the city’s best restaurants, clubs and bars are footsteps away, but you have all of that and more right within the Pendry’s Martin Brudnizki-designed four walls.

Top Table

For the best skyline showcase, request one of the corner booths up at Merois. Or if the LA sun is shining, head out to Ospero’s balmy patio.

Dress Code

Paparazzi ready.

Hotel restaurant

Wolfgang Puck has overseen all of the Pendry West Hollywood’s restaurants, so you’re in good hands. The star of the culinary show is undoubtedly Merois (pronounced ‘Meh-roy’) up on the roof, with a pistachio and pink palette, skyline views and Asian-inspired dishes such as crispy rice crab salad, Shanghai lobster, Peking duck, and kung pao cauliflower. A few floors down, Ospero is a neighborhood trattoria serving handmade pastas, salads and signature smoked-salmon pizzas. There’s also the grab and go patio portion of Ospero for coffees and pastries, and guests are also granted access to the members’ club the Britely, provided they have a reservation.

Hotel bar

Merois has a lounge with a raw bar and sushi selection to accompany sundowners with skyline views. Bar Pendry is the hotel’s social hub, with stools along the counter and a late-night licence at weekends (2am). There’s also the Sun Rose venue, with regular gigs and 100 seats up for grabs.

Last orders

Merois is open for lunch (11am to 2pm) and dinner (5.30pm to 10pm), Friday to Sunday. Ospero serves breakfast (7am to 11am), lunch (11.30am to 2pm) and dinner (5pm to 10pm). Dinner reservations at the Britely can be made for between 5.30pm and 10pm.

In-room dining is available 24 hours a day.

As the name helpfully hints at, Pendry West Hollywood is in Los Angeles’ starriest suburb, affectionately known to all abbreviation lovers as WeHo.

Planes

The nearest airports are LAX and Burbank, both of which are within a 45-minute drive of the hotel. The concierge team can arrange transfers on request.

Automobiles

LA’s notoriously bad traffic is best avoided – stick to walkable West Hollywood on foot. If you have come by car, underground valet parking costs $65 a night including tax.

Worth getting out of bed for

LA has lots of cool, creative corners but one of its most happening ’hoods is undoubtedly West Hollywood, or, to the shorthand-lovers, WeHo. Its three main areas are the Design District for fashion and furniture fans, Sunset Boulevard (for nightlife and hotels within a stumble home) and Santa Monica Boulevard (for shopping and eating). The Sunset Strip is the epicentre – this section of Sunset Boulevard is Tinseltown’s raucous nightlife hub and has been for decades, with music venues including the infamous Viper Room and the scene of Elton John’s American debut the Troubadour on your doorstep. The Comedy Store is directly opposite the hotel. WeHo is also home to art galleries and architectural-masterpiece homes (don’t miss the Schindler House) to base a walking tour around. 

Local restaurants

LA may famously not be a walkable city, but that’s not the case in West Hollywood, where there are plenty of restaurants and bars to stroll to (including just upstairs, to Wolfgang Puck’s Merois). Norah is an old WeHo favourite, continually pleasing regulars with small plates (shrimp and yellowtail aguachile, eggplant with za’atar and pistachio) and wood-fired pizzas. Boston export (and London import) Saltie Girl has also made a home in West Hollywood, giving both boys and girls seafood towers, lobster rolls and all kinds of smoked fish. For more super-fresh seafood with a side of people-watching (practically essential in Hollywood, for obvious reasons), head to Connie & Ted’s (est. 1940) and be especially grateful if you’ve bagged a table on the patio. Other hallowed WeHo hotspots include Night + Market for tasty Thai food and Dan Tana’s (if you can get in).

Local cafés

If you’re hungry at an unorthodox hour, Mel’s Drive-In is the all-American, all-night diner for you, dispensing sundaes, shakes and local legends.

Local bars

Cocktail lovers will find kindred spirits at Employees Only, which has made its way from the West Village in NYC to West Hollywood, bringing its masterful mixology along for the ride. And if you need a rooftop to properly enjoy your sundowners, head up to Catch or EP & LP and take in the view.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this hilltop hotel in Los Angeles and unpacked their music sheets and new melodies, a full account of their starry-eyed break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Pendry West Hollywood…

Soaring above the Sunset Strip, Pendry West Hollywood is the Los Angeles lair if you’re in search of a room with a view: Downtown, the Wilshire Corridor, Sunset Boulevard and the Hollywood Hills all form the assorted backdrops to the spacious rooms and suites. With well-heeled neighbours (Beverly Hills to the west, the Hollywood Hills to the north), West Hollywood has remained a little grittier, partly due to its role as LA’s nightlife hub. Inside the hotel though, grit is switched for glitz, thanks to Martin Brudnizki’s opulent interiors, which feature dazzling artworks, glossy checkerboard floors and abundant art deco accents. 

It stays true to its neighborhood’s late-night roots though, with venues serving drinks until the small hours at weekends – you can even have your welcome drink spiked if you take it along to a bar with the secret word of the day. WeHo may be overflowing with music venues, but there’s one right here at the Pendry, too – recent stars to grace its stage have included Jeff Goldblum and Nicole Scherzinger. In members’ club the Britely, hotel guests have special access to some areas with advance booking, including the bowling alley and restaurant. Don’t expect to get much sleep.
