This storied 257-room hotel -- until recently known as the Hyatt West Hollywood -- reopened in 2009 as Andaz West Hollywood after a $48-million makeover. Andaz doesn't hide its headline-making '60s and '70s rock 'n' roll heritage under a blanket of respectability; it flaunts it. The balconies -- from which, lore has it, Rolling Stone Keith Richards and the Who's Keith Moon once hurled TVs -- are gone, but that has more to do with changing tastes than some fear that a guest might push a flat-screen over a railing. -- Beverly Beyette Planning your trip: Read more: From Riot Hyatt to Andaz West Hollywood on Sunset Strip Andaz West Hollywood 8401 W.
