Trendy hotel with a major noise problem. One of the reasons I stay this hotel is its location in the center of Hollywood. The W is across the street from the Pantages Theater, next to a Metro station, with a Trader Joe's and a wide array of restaurants in walking distance. On a clear day and you can see all the way to downtown. The hotel lobby has been undergoing renovations for nearly a year now and they have temporarily located the front desk on the 12th floor where the swimming pool is also located. Along with a well equipped gym, in-room dining, and a friendly staff, the W has everything a traveler needs. The problem is, this hotel is very noisy. The double-pane windows are woefully inadequate for keeping out the noise of Hollywood boulevard traffic, so all day and night you can hear the pedestrians, street sweepers, and hot rods driving up and down Hollywood Blvd. The other noise comes from *inside* the hotel. Depending on what floor your room is on, you can hear the water pipes clang and bang all day and night. If you're on the 2nd floor, forget about having a quiet morning or peaceful night of sleep. Evidently the hotel management doesn't think it's important enough to insulate the pipes, so bring ear plugs. I am a happy Bonvoy Platinum member and have spent $10,000+ at the W Hollywood over that past 3 years, but next time, I think I'll try another property.
