W Hotel In Hollywood Won't Let Guests Use Its Pool

If you plan to visit Los Angeles and want to stay at the W Hollywood, don’t expect to get to see the rooftop pool. The hotel contracted the running and maintenance of its pool out to a Las Vegas promotion company, and now it’s been turned into an exclusive club and is off-limits to paying customers of the hotel.

Gadling’s blogger Jason Cochran was a guest at the W Hollywood last month and discovered this new rule first hand, when a bouncer doorman turned him away and said that members of the “general public” weren’t allowed in the pool. Apparently paying $230 a night for a room at the hotel makes you a member of the general public as far as pool privileges go.
