1.2km from The Addiction BistroDid someone once say it's about location? This may be the best location of any hotel in L.A. Well, what does best mean? Convenience for me. One of the few places in L.A. where you don't have to drive, you can walk to a whole lot of things. Walk up the block you have Sunset Blvd - bars, clubs, restaurants, and upscale shops. Walk down the block you have Santa Monica Blvd - bars, clubs, restaurants, neighborhood shops. Another 5-minute walk past SM Blvd is Melrose Avenue - bars, restaurants, upscale shops, design industry stores. Walk another 5 minutes past Melrose is Beverly Blvd - bars, restaurants, the sterile but popular Beverly Center shopping center. Walk another 5 minutes past Beverly is 3rd Street - restaurants, cafes, quirky stores. Dissecting these streets are Robertson Blvd and La Cienega Blvd - bars, restaurants, cafes, upscale shops, art galleries. Walk 5 minutes west of the hotel, you hit Beverly Hills city limits - very nice neighborhoods for walking, jogging, biking. Walk another 20 minutes, you're in downtown Beverly Hills. You can take the free WH City shuttle to the center of Hollywood and explore there. Pick it up at the WH Library - 5-minute walk from the hotel. Only thing I wish the hotel had was more referals for local dog-walkers. I travel with my dog and met someone around the block from the hotel who was walking a couple of dogs. He hadn't walked any hotel guest dogs even though he lived around the corner. Knew the minute I saw him he'd be great for my Pit-mix. After talking to him, I arranged that he took care of Duke for the rest of my trip. You know how some people's body language says trust, love, in control, enthusiastic, knowledgeable. Duke loves him. And there are dog parks for Duke around here, too! I'll be back.
