The Pendry West Hollywood is the Self-Indulgent Arrival Summer Needs
With a decadent art deco–style design by Martin Brudnizki, a private member’s club, and a fine-dining rooftop restaurant serving Shanghai lobster, the hotel is an ode to Hollywood’s golden era—and pre-pandemic good times.
Pendry Hotels knows how to stage an arrival experience. At every property, a showpiece art installation exploring light and space is the first thing guests encounter. In San Diego, it’s Adam Belt’s rainbow projection “You Deceived Me and I was Deceived.” At the Baltimore outpost, South Korean artist Chul Hyun Ahn’s “Infinity Piece” offers up an illusory trip down a seemingly never-ending tunnel of opalescent circles. Amsterdam-based artist Arnout Meijer’s sculptural spheres play with luminescence and perception in the lobby of the recently opened location in Chicago.
