Spacious, slick lobby with a custom Sterling Ruby piece hanging above it. A real show stopper lobby.

The design is lush in textiles and rich in use of colour and flora.
Plenty on nooks and crannies to sit and wait for you check in or to have a
quick meeting.

The check-in desk and the most incredible staff I’ve ever encountered. The service is beyond attentive yet so personable and warm. Another incredible thing, this pool table. What a centerpiece.

The classic EDITION design, minimal, luxurious and just right in every way. That bed is divine btw, jetlag heaven.

I am so into the colour coordinated nooks here. This loud green is usually not my thing, but if you do it like this.. I am definitely reconsidering. Looks like a David Lynch move.

Aside from drinking, looking at the bottle designs is my favourite thing to do at a bar. These guys nailing it.

Looking around WeHo Edition is like looking around a perfectly composed movie set. My first eye (photographic) and my second eye (OCD) are very happy here together.

Apocalypse. That’s what I think looking at the exterior landscape design. I like apocalypse, it’s a mood.

Rooftop has an inside bar and outside seating with beautiful views looking south over Beverly Hills and beyond.

Great size pool, not just for splashing, but for some adult lengths.

Tres cute, setting sun, reclaimed carpets and endless views. Waiter, one sprits please!

This is the terrace and private pool belonging to the grand suite. The perfect LA scenario.

Chic entrance and the genius house car, taking guests to any location up to 2 miles. No license, no worries. I think this hotel is made for me.

View from our balcony. Dreamy.

Highs & Lows

  • Oh my lord, the service. I do not know where they find these guys or who trains them, but people working at WeHo Edition are a stellar bunch that made our stay unforgettable.
