Proudly standing in the heart of Sunset Boulevard, The West Hollywood EDITION brings a vibrancy to the district that can't be matched by their surrounding competitors. Dripping with greenery everywhere you turn, it's as if we were transported to a sexy, swanky jungle in the middle of Los Angeles.
The energy of West Hollywood is palpable as you walk through EDITION, from the robust use of color with bold yellow pool tables amid vibrant verdant lounges in the lobby, to the ceiling dripping with disco balls in the basement club, Sunset. There's one clear message The West Hollywood EDITION is sending: We're here to play.
Our room overlooked the iconic downtown L.A. skyline, and while the EDITION from top to bottom makes a bold, colorful statement, our room was a peaceful, monochromatic oasis of sand tones, crisp white bedding, and ambient lighting ideal for sending us into a blissful state of relaxation. I was eager to hit the spa as they take a mindful approach to inner health and nutrition, so I booked myself a few services before reconvening with Chris later for dinner.
The spa at WHE is "the first luxury destination in Los Angeles to weave together wellness, mindfulness, and beauty from within, through treatments and experiences that embrace healthy lifestyles and ecological well-being." With the perfect balance of offerings, I chose the 1K Facial, as well as the Sticks and Stones Massage with the Salt of the Earth Scrub. My experience at the EDITION spa is exactly what I needed after a long day of travel and meetings!
Come that evening, our appetites were primed for a delicious dining experience at their restaurant, Ardor. This dimly lit restaurant lined with fresh greens from floor to ceiling provided an abundance of plant oxygen. We began our evening with a tomato brioche bread that aroused our tastebuds, followed by a caesar salad for Chris and a brussels spouts salad for me. The service at Ardor was impeccable. Their staff provide the ideal level of service, while simultaneously giving you privacy to enjoy your experience and connect with the ones you're with on your trip. For the entree, I enjoyed the black bass special while Chris dined on the filet mignon--both cooked to perfection.
After dinner, we made our way down to their basement nightclub--something all EDITION locations are known for. The West Hollywood's club, called Sunset, is as much of a party for your eyes as it is your ears. The ceiling is lined from wall-to-wall with light reflecting disco balls, giving throwback NYC nightclub vibes. Sunset isn't just the newest place to be seen, it's the place to be you. Dancing until dawn before heading back to the lobby bar for drinks as the sun rises isn't exactly out of the ordinary here! After all, you only live once, right?
The next morning, we were drawn back to Ardor for breakfast. While overlooking the beautiful, 360-view of L.A., we ordered the egg and vegetable frittata, as well as the eggs benedict to fuel us for the day ahead. The fact that Chris and I still talk about the savory dishes at Ardor should give you reason enough to go!
After breakfast, we popped into their 24-hour, state-of-the-art gym for a quick workout, where I was thrilled to find my beloved Peloton bike, in addition to every other piece of equipment you could dream of.
We capped off the afternoon at the expansive rooftop pool to take in the stunning views of Beverly Hills and toast to a day of relaxation poolside. More important than anything else, the service at The West Hollywood EDITION was second to none. The staff truly care about your experience and anticipate your needs before you even realize you have them. From the bartenders who can craft a custom cocktail simply based off of your preferred poison, to the front desk staff who felt more like old friends hosting us at their home than employees, the staff pays attention to every single detail--especially service. With additional locations in Abu Dhabi, London, New York City, Barcelona, Shanghai, Miami Beach, Sanya and Bodrum, it's clear EDITION wants to bring the party to every corner of the world. We look forward to coming back to The West Hollywood EDITION as we now finally have a home away from home in L.A.
