Dawson Design Associates leads $25M renovation of W Los Angeles

W Hotels Worldwide announced the completion of the $25 million renovation of W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills, formerly known as W Los Angeles – Westwood. Located between the foothills of Beverly Hills and Bel-Air, while just minutes from Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard and the beaches of Santa Monica, the transformation was led by Dawson Design Associates.

The top-to-bottom renovation includes a new destination restaurant, STK, through a partnership with The ONE Group, which is scheduled to open this summer. STK will also provide an updated menu concept at WET, the landscaped ground-level pool with California-style cabanas.

Drawing inspiration from the bungalows of Beverly Hills, W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills unveiled 297 newly re-imagined suites, including an Extreme WOW suite (the W brand’s take on the Presidential Suite) that comes equipped with a screening room. Contemporary in décor while maintaining a bold and modern design, each suite is detailed with sectional sofas and new lighting, along with louvered windows and filtered light.
