U.S. News Review

Once known as the "Riot Hyatt" due to the antics of the many rock stars who visited, the Andaz West Hollywood now makes its mark with understated elegance. Travelers appreciate the low-key, sophisticated atmosphere, the scrumptious in-house restaurant (named Riot House) and the luminescent rooftop Sundeck bar. The hotel's atmosphere permeates the hotel's 239 guest rooms, which feature Sealy Posturpedic beds, iHome stereos, LCD flat-screen TVs and complimentary minibars. Business travelers especially like this hotel, praising the complimentary wireless Internet and the variety of business services available in the lounge. And though this hotel's party days are largely over, there's still some quality nightlife nearby. Andaz West Hollywood is easy to spot near the House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard.

“Enter to find standing "hosts" welcoming guests and checking them in via tablets (there's no front desk).”


“The hotel once known as the "Riot Hyatt" has softened its edges considerably, reopening in January 2009 as Hyatt's second Andaz property.”
