If one of the most spectacular views of West Hollywood and the largest suite in all of Los Angeles doesn't entice you enough to book your next stay at The London, perhaps the fact that they have two English bulldogs who live in the hotel named Winston and Churchill will. From top to bottom, The London provides old Hollywood glam vibes with a modern-day twist. The moment Chris and I stepped into The London, we could tell it was special. The energy was palpable and they seemingly captured a slice of London and dropped it into the middle of L.A..
Every room at The London is a suite, which is an immediate advantage over several of its competitors in the area. Upon checking into our room, we were pleased to find the bathroom was just as spacious as our master bath at home, something all vertically- gifted athletes will enjoy. With our own private balcony overlooking the breathtaking hills of Hollywood, we were tempted to stay in the room, which is why we ordered our spa services to be brought to us--an option The London offers with any spa service you select with a simple call to your concierge.
We spent the afternoons relaxing by the rooftop pool, taking in the panoramic views of Beverly Hills. Once again, the impeccable concierge service offered at The London carries through to the pool, ensuring your experience on the roof is just as superb as your time spent inside. No detail was too small to consider in the design of this oasis in the sky. Palm trees on the roof? Why not? A waterfall cascading down behind two English bulldog mosaics? Even better! The pool (which is only available to hotel guests) provides the perfect environment for fun and relaxation, making it equally perfect for a family stay or a romantic getaway.
Among several outstanding amenities The London offers is a 24-hour fitness center, complete with free weights, a Peloton bike, a TechnoGym Kinesis station, and a high-intensity interval zone. As you may know, Chris and I like to maintain our exercise regimes on the road, so having access to a gym that houses our creature comforts (like my favorite Peloton bike) is important to us.
The London's restaurant, Boxwood, offers a sprawling complimentary breakfast that's almost too pretty to eat. Whether you're a savory or sweet morning person, their spread has something for every palate. As hungry as an eater as Chris is, he was able to fuel up for the day ahead, but if you have something specific in mind, you can order off their menu like I did (I recommend the egg white breakfast burrito). If you're not a morning person, we recommend checking out Boxwood for a romantic date night before hitting the town--more specifically, order their phenomenal spicy tuna roll. Quite possibly some of the best sushi we've ever had!
If you're looking to experience the glamour of old Hollywood refreshed for today's traveler, we recommend staying at The London in WeHo (and don't forget to say hi to Winston and Churchill while you're there).
