Average time to visit
Los Angeles has a year-round climate. Summer (June - September) is the peak-tourist season, this is when the weather is hottest but beaches can be over crowded. January and February are the rainiest months. If you are visiting in May, June or July, watch out for the 'marine layer', a cloudy overcast, almost fog-like cloud which may affect the beach and first mile or so of the coastal strip, especially in the mornings.
To start planning your holiday to Andaz West Hollywood
The Andaz Hotel is located on the famous Sunset Strip in the heart of eclectic West Hollywood. Its 239 rooms boast spectacular views of the Hollywood Hills on one side and the Sunset Strip and downtown Los Angeles on the other.
With the Comedy Store next door, and the House of Blues across the road, the Andaz is within walking distance of many venues, restaurants and boutiques. Andaz translates from Hindi as 'personal style' which is evident throughout the hotel. The modern rooms, glamorous lobby and manicured gardens help it to live up to its name. The vibrant styles and contemporary art make it a fun place to stay.
It was once been a landmark West Hollywood hotel renowned for hosting parties for celebrities such as The Rolling Stones, The Who and Led Zeppelin. Although the dynamics have changed since, there is still a considerable feeling of chic in this urban oasis but it definitely feels more relaxed.
Andaz features 239 newly refurbished rooms that boast spectacular views of the Hollywood Hills on one side and the Sunset Strip and downtown Los Angeles on the other. With LATHER bath and body products, a complimentary, non-alcoholic minibar that is replenished daily, complimentary local phone calls and a 24 hour fitness centre, the Andaz provides an ideal base from which to explore Los Angeles. The sundeck found at the top of the hotel features the city's highest rooftop pool and offers some superb views of Los Angeles, it is well worth taking a trip up here during your stay.

Although children are welcome to come and stay here, it is probably not the most practical of hotels for a family. The rooms are too small to comfortably accommodate an extra bed and there are no specific facilities available for children at the hotel. It is much more suitable for adults.
The Andaz is home to RH restaurant and bar. RH follows a farm-to-table motto so the menu is very much Californian as local ingredients are sourced to create tantalising modern dishes (in keeping with the hotel) to serve to its guests. The restaurant itself is modern and unfussy creating a chic atmosphere. Furthermore, with the open kitchen there is a buzz to the place as you watch the chefs expertly preparing your dinner, lunch or breakfast. The bar with its enormous windows offering superb views of The Sunset Strip is a wonderful place to enjoy a drink and watch the world go by.
The Andaz is also home to the highest rooftop pool in Los Angeles, take the lift up for some relaxation and some sunbathing on one of the daybeds. At night it is a magical place to come and gaze at the stars.
