Concierge.com's insider take:

The coolly sophisticated design of the London West Hollywood comes courtesy of Irish designer David Collins, the man behind such lauded interiors as London's Wolseley restaurant and the Connaught hotel bar. Even the entry-level options among the 200 all-suite accommodations are nicely sized, and many come with terraces that overlook the Sunset Strip, while the One-Bedroom Suites—complete with a fully stocked wet bar, lounge, and dining area—seem tailor-made for civilized cocktail parties. Mod furnishings include velvet chaise sectionals and a breezy palette of bleached oak, pale greens, and whites. Not from the Noël Coward era, however, are the amenities: All rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, iHome players, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary phone calls to London—a subtle nod to the hotel's British origins. Brit chef Gordon Ramsay runs two restaurants at the London: a beautifully done fine-dining room known for top-notch tasting menus as well as the more casual Boxwood Café. While it's certainly not a theme hotel (don't expect to find any Beefeaters manning the door), there's a heavy Anglophile vibe to the place, as at its East Coast counterpart, London NYC. Tea is served every afternoon in your suite or by the rooftop pool, and twice a week, the hotel's English bulldog, Garbanzo, greets guests in the lobby.—Audrey Davidow

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
After $54 million of cosmetic enhancements, the former Bel Age hotel, off Sunset Strip, has been transformed into a good-time glamour girl. The instant you enter the shimmering white-and-gold lobby, the doting begins. Reservations? Newspapers? Directions? Fresh-faced front desk clerks are eager to help. All 200 rooms are like bright studios, with velvet sofas that encourage lounging. Other furnishings are equally swish: mock-croc chairs, a slender marble writing desk, and a bathroom so lavishly mosaicked that Hadrian himself would approve. (One quibble: No self-respecting starlet would stand for the bed's scratchy sheets.) Day and night, PYTs mob the rooftop pool deck, and several good restaurants are a short stroll away. For utter indulgence, however, look no further than the hotel's first floor, and Gordon Ramsay's eponymous restaurant.—2009 Hot List

When to go: Awards season (Jan.-Mar.) is prime time for poolside people-watching.

Which room to book: Crown Suites are only slightly pricier than the standard rooms but have heaps more space and better views.
