I’m staying at the Andaz West Hollywood at the moment, and up until now my stay has been flawless. I had a late night last night (relatively speaking, given that I got up at 4AM east coast time) and was looking forward to sleeping in this morning. Heck, the bed is among the most comfortable I’ve had in months. BTA left this comment about the hotel a couple of days ago:
I spent 2 nights at the Andaz WeHo this week, I’m curioius your thoughts. I lucked into a free upgrade from a ‘view’ room to a corner suite, since they were cleaning carpets in my original room. Darn. Nice stay, but watch for the picketers at 6am.
I guess I didn’t quite appreciate the “watch for the picketers at 6am” part. It’s kind of hard not to. I’m on a relatively high floor, but at 6AM on the dot I was woken up by the sound of sirens, people banging pots and pans, and screaming, and of course this picketing is taking place on the street immediately below my room. I mean, let me clear, it’s so loud that even if I went to the bathroom and closed the door, I still would have too much background noise to make a phone call.
So, any insight as to how long this goes on for? And what the hell are they picketing about anyway?
Sucks when an otherwise great hotel is ruined by this kind of stuff…
On the plus side, if you do have to get up at 6AM, it’s a reliable wake up call. 😉
