Artful Living | Why Pendry is West Hollywood’s Hottest Hotel

Situated at the heart of the iconic Sunset Strip, Pendry West Hollywood is a five-star hot spot in Los Angeles’s trendiest area. This luxury boutique property — which spans a full city block in WeHo — features 149 well-appointed guest rooms, including 37 suites, as well as 40 private residences (for those who want to check in full-time). Here, the renowned Montage hospitality brand has expertly captured that hard-to-nail combination of elegance and avant-garde.

The red-hot hotel opened in April 2021, marking the third outpost in the posh Pendry collection and the line’s highly anticipated entrée into the City of Angels. And the accommodations certainly live up to all the accolades and acclaim. Designed by Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects and executed by Cuningham with interiors by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, the structure itself is standout, ushering in a new chapter for this storied hot spot. Inside, exceptional amenities abound, including Wolfgang Puck eateries, bustling entertainment venues, a rooftop pool, a members-only social club, the soothing Spa Pendry and more.

First, let’s talk accommodations. With generous square footage and gorgeous city views, guest quarters embody laidback California luxury. The overall vibe feels stylishly sophisticated, combining art deco design, modern touches and contemporary art (like the glass-and-steel orb by Anthony James that holds court in the lobby). Rooms and suites are outfitted with plush custom bedding, signature MiN x Pendry toiletries and premium entertainment systems.

There’s no need to leave the property to experience culinary excellence. Among the onsite eateries are Wolfgang Puck concepts Merois and Ospero. Merois offers global flavors from a remarkable rooftop setting with awe-inspiring vistas, while Ospero is the cozy neighborhood trattoria blending Italian influences with Los Angeles sensibilities. You can’t go wrong no matter where you choose to dine (even if that’s in the comfort of your suite clad in a cozy robe, thanks to 24-hour room service).

Pendry pays homage to the predecessor that inhabited this plot, the House of Blues, with the Sun Rose. This intimate 100-seat live music venue has hosted some of the world’s biggest artists for residencies, public shows and private performances, from Jack Harlow to Bebe Rexha to Stevie Wonder. The Britely Social Club, meanwhile, grants members access to Pendry amenities as well as the subterranean bowling alley (also open to hotel guests).

Not to be overlooked are the wellness offerings that help travelers reach a state of Zen even in the heart of the bustling city. Spa Pendry features some 5,000 square feet centered around serenity, with a full menu of facials, massages, body treatments and nail services. There’s also the state-of-art fitness center so globetrotters can take their workouts on the go. And visitors seeking some vitamin D therapy can make their way to the rooftop pool, an all-day haven for relaxation (and maybe some rosé). Taken altogether, Pendry is West Hollywood’s hottest hotel and a must-stay for the discerning traveler.
