Oh, if these walls could talk. You wouldn't know it today, but this snazzy hotel from the Hyatt chain was once the hardest partying spot on the Sunset Strip. Known then as the Hyatt House, it was the place where rock royalty boozed all night long and, as legend has it, where Keith Richards (the Rolling Stones) and Keith Moon (the Who) once threw a TV set off the balcony. But just as aging rock stars trade Jack Daniels for juice cleanses (and nips and tucks), the hotel formerly dubbed "Hyatt Riot" and "Riot House" underwent a $48-million makeover in 2009 to emerge as the sleek boutique Andaz West Hollywood. The 239-room hotel sits in the center of the Sunset Strip’s nightlife scene and pays homage to its history with decorative touches (contemporary art and vintage images of its famous guests) throughout the modern-designed rooms and lobby. The sunny lobby restaurant RH features a seasonal menu of California-French cuisine. There are no shenanigans here. There is, however, a show-stopper of a rooftop sundeck, offering the highest vantage point in the area, with sweeping views of the city. It's the perfect perch from which to sip on grown-up cocktails and gaze at the next generation of rockers partying on the Strip.
