Arriving at the hotel, the first impression was that of high-end modern luxury. Besides the stunning interiors and incredibly welcoming staff, we couldn't help but immediately feel this was going to be an experience to remember – and it was.
The staff showed exceptional service from the moment we arrived. We were greeted with bottled water on a silver platter. They all made us feel like we were their most important guests. With smiles, they were always ready to hold doors open and answer any questions. The service was stellar and beyond what we imagined it would be. They all went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had all of our needs met. From the manager to the rest of the staff, they all displayed a genuine desire to make our stay enjoyable.
The room assigned to us exceeded all expectations. We were greeted with a personal gift of baked goods with FAME’s logo designed on it. We felt valued and unique right away thanks to this special touch. The room was incredibly spacious, which allowed us to unwind and relax in the heart of luxury. The bathroom was a memorable feature, with a sophisticated style and lots of room for pampering. From our room on the tenth floor, we had a stunning view of all of West Hollywood, which served as a beautiful backdrop for our stay. The room's ample natural light, which filled the area and gave it a cozy, welcoming atmosphere, was among its most noticeable characteristics.

Individual robes and slippers were given to us, ensuring our comfort and adding a luxurious touch to our spa experience.
