Vivienne Westwood Partners With London West Hollywood on Luxury Penthouse
For $25,000 a night, you can get a chic night's sleep.
Want to live like Vivienne Westwood? You can! Sort of.
On Thursday, The London West Hollywood hotel announced that it's nearly done with $25 million in renovations, with the crown jewel being a brand new bi-level 11,000-square-foot penthouse inspired by the famous British designer. Scheduled to open in May, the massive space is being billed as the largest suite in L.A.
It was designed in collaboration between Westwood and Richmond Design, and features exclusive art, decor and custom furnishings. Look out for Westwood-designed prints, tiles and even scarves. Oh, and the view. The penthouse — clearly designed with major parties in mind (this is L.A., after all) — features a 5,000-square-foot private outdoor rooftop terrace with panoramic city views.
General manager Jeff Kulek calls the suite L.A.'s "most lavish and fashion-forward hotel suite." He adds: "The new penthouse, along with our three impressive new Metropolitan Collection suites, not only offer superior overnight accommodations, but also provide unparalleled entertaining opportunities found nowhere else in Los Angeles."
"We were initially approached by The London West Hollywood to add inspiration to the penthouse with our prints and graphics. We have specially curated rugs, wall hangings and soft furnishings to bring a subtle element of our brand to the luxury apartment. It's really exciting to see our designs translated into an interior space," says Andreas Kronthaler, Vivienne Westwood design partner and creative director.
Guests who stay in the room — dubbed the Penthouse Inspired by Vivienne Westwood — will be treated to exclusive designer experiences, such as an hour of private shopping at the Vivienne Westwood store in West Hollywood, complete with a special discount; his and her gift bags from Westwood upon check-in; and Westwood-branded amenities within the suite. But it's not cheap. You can rent the penthouse for $25,000 per night. That's baller status even in L.A.
