Andaz West Hollywood
On January 8, 2009, the former Hyatt House was reopened as the Andaz West Hollywood, the second Andaz hotel in the new brand by Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. The 14-story Andaz West Hollywood has 257 rooms, including 20 suites and a restaurant called RH. The renovation was completed by New York-based architecture and interior design firm Janson Goldstein LLP and includes a hand-painted metal disk 11-foot sculpture by renowned New York-based artist Jacob Hashimoto. The balconies made famous by stories of rock stars throwing televisions from them are now glass-enclosed sunrooms that overlook Sunset Boulevard. The first Andaz hotel, Andaz Liverpool Street, opened in 2007 in London.
