Andaz West Hollywood, Los Angeles

This hotel in West Hollywood is part of rock history; it’s where Keith Richards threw a TV out the window, Led Zeppelin’s drummer reportedly rode a motorbike down the corridor, and Jim Morrison was apparently evicted for hanging out of a window by his fingertips.

It’s gone through many rebrands over the years, but since 2009 it’s been an Andaz — all low lighting, clean lines and shiny surfaces. It’s slick, for sure, but somehow I can’t imagine bands behaving badly here anymore. The first thing I noticed as I walked into my eighth-floor room was the view. An alcove with comfy chairs and floor-to-ceiling windows looked out over the city, provoking only the tiniest temptation to chuck the flatscreen onto Sunset Boulevard.

The bed was possibly the biggest and softest I’ve ever slept in. The pillows were very comfortable too, and I managed to get a good night’s sleep, despite my jetlag. Slightly disappointingly, there was no bath, but the shower room was a decent size, with strong water pressure and quality toiletries. The showstopper, though, was the hotel’s rooftop pool deck, offering views towards the hills and the metropolis below, with cabanas for sheltering from the Californian sun.
