The London West Hollywood was selected as the No. 1 large city hotel in the continental United States and Canada in Travel + Leisure’s 2009 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey.

The new boutique hotel is situated just off The Sunset Strip. Among its myriad features: a splendid rooftop pool with spacious sundeck and panoramic views of the legendary Hollywood Hills; an inspired meeting & private event space; spacious guest suites with private terraces; dining at Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood; and expertly attuned service throughout the hotel.

“The London West Hollywood is truly honored to receive this coveted award,” said General Manager Vincent Mercurio. “We feel that our property exemplifies the best of Los Angeles and we are very pleased that the readers of Travel + Leisure share our sentiment.”

Hotel rankings are based on ratings in five categories: rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food, and value.
