The “W” Hotel Now Offers Penthouse Residences

There’s a hidden gem in the center of Hollywood. It comes attached to one of the World’s most swank hotels.

Director of Marketing for the W Residences, Ron Barnes, gives us the tour.

“This is our roof. It’s your backyard as a resident,” Barnes says.

He shows us the pool. The weight room and a dog park.

“We’ve created this space so people can come here and let their dogs play,” Barnes says.

And of course — there’s the stunning view.

It’s 15 stories of luxury living, and for the first time, its penthouses —  all uniquely designed — are hitting the market.

“Basically they designed it for me,” says Sue Firestone, a self-proclaimed hippy and the designer behind a $1.5 million unit.

“Being in the heart of Hollywood, I just wanted to bring a natural feel here,” Firestone says.

That she did — the fireplace and tree stumps on the coffee table allow for a slight escape.

“I’ve enjoyed staying here a lot,” she says.

That brings us next door to 12 D. You’d never guess this $3.2 million pad has been converted to an office.

It doesn’t look like much of an office, but that was the plan.

With this couch made of a man’s wool suit, designer Amy Hall adds her personal touch to this 2700-square-foot, three-bedroom condo.

“I just wanted it to feel comfortable and not like a waiting room like most offices feel,” says Hall.

And now on to 12 G. Who needs a bedroom when you can convert it to a poker room and watch every sporting event possible and the same time?

Christopher Grubb of Arch Interiors is the designer of the dream man cave.

“It was really meant for play and to have fun in,” Grubb says.

A 100-inch television and a putting green 1200 feet above Hollywood Blvd can solve that.
