The W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills is a SPG Category 6 property meaning free night awards start at 20,000 Starpoints per night. You can find decent weekend rates here for around $250 per night, meaning paying makes more sense than redeeming point. The hotel is located in Westwood within walking distance to Westwood Village with lots of shops and restaurants.

As a SPG Gold Member, thanks to the status from my American Express Platinum Card, I was upgraded to a Fantastic Studio, which is a slightly larger room on a high floor.

Overall I had a nice stay at the W Los Angeles- West Beverly Hills. I enjoyed the neighborhood feel and how it was within walking distance to the bars and restaurants of Westwood.
The lobby and rooms have been recently renovated, as well as the hotel has opened a new restaurant STK, which was serving dinner nightly while I was there.
