London Ladies Calling: A West Hollywood Star Boutique Hotel Reveals its Softer Side

The London in West Hollywood is showing its feminine side these days.  The luxury hotel recently hosted a luncheon for women social media influencers to show off its features for women travelers.  The attendees were given a top-down tour of the property, beginning with the panoramic rooftop pool deck where the hotel – known for its Gordon Ramsey restaurant – served an elegant lunch from the hotel’s Boxwood Café, with a few surprises, such as gourmet hot dogs.

The five-star hotel celebrates its four-year anniversary this year since it took over and remodeled the former Belage Hotel.  A fresh shiny look that takes its inspiration from the bright lights of Hollywood beams throughout the hotel, from reflective chrome tiles that highlight the front exterior to well-lighted hallways that are the antithesis of the dim (and creepy) walkways of today’s many try-chic boutique hotels.

Besides the safer-feeling hallways, women will love the large bathroom, expanded dressing area and vanities in the guest rooms.  For those who love to primp, the hotel has discreetly placed mirrors throughout the lobby.  Another nice touch, literally, is the faux suede wall coverings, though I would hate to be the one to brush the nap every day, which reportedly employees three full-time staff. 

The hotel also features all the modern amenities for today’s wired woman, such a s hi-fi and wi-fi, including a port to connect your laptop for streaming to your TV.

Not last at all is the hotel’s Michelin-rated Gordon Ramsey restaurant with adorable cozy baby blue and pink kid-soft-leather booths where you can cuddle with a romantic date and indulge in a delectable, heavenly menu that only the master of Hell’s Kitchen could produce, or you can hang at the ultra-hip London Bar.

Best part is you don’t have to Tube it to get there, as The London is in the heart of the “Most Walkable City in the US.”
