Loews Hotel Gets a Hollywood-Style Facelift

By Kim Sudhalter

July 11, 2014

The Loews Hollywood Hotel at the Hollywood & Highland center, which was most recently the Renaissance Hotel, just underwent a $31 million dollar renovation and got super fancy on us! (Remember when it was a Sheraton with a revolving restaurant on top? Many moons ago…). We’re talking a helicopter pad for celebrity fly-ins, a 7000 sq ft Exhale spa, a Core Fusion® and yoga studio, an elegant hi-tech lobby bar and a fitness center with views to die for.

The newly revamped hotel boasts 628 guest rooms, including 113 suites, decorated in elegant classic Hollywood décor (think Parsons-inspired desks, ’30s-style club chairs and Eames-style office chairs).  The vibrant new lobby features a dramatic new outdoor curving staircase and sleek, modern materials such as white marble floors, gray agate front desk and mirrored columns. The centerpiece of the hotel’s renovation, H2 Kitchen & Bar offers a relaxing space to plug in, conduct meetings and grab a cocktail. And there’s free Wi-Fi and outlets everywhere.

Those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood Boulevard (and this includes locals too), can relax in Exhale Spa’s six private therapy rooms, couples’ treatment room with soaking tub, aromatherapy steam rooms, manicure/pedicure lounge, or two co-ed Zen lounges. Try signature treatments like the “Illuminate Facial” and “Flow Massage.” Or challenge yourself at the Core Fusion studio with classes designed to increase core strength and refocus the mind.

But let’s get back to that helipad. The 2,025 square-foot Loews Hollywood helipad sits above the hotel’s 20th floor. As part of the Loews’ “Top of the World” programming, introduced in June 2014, the helipad is available for exclusive experiences, such as rooftop yoga, romantic proposals, private dinners, champagne toasts and engagement photo sessions.  Oh yeah, and flying in from wherever…
