Hotel Ziggy Review – A Vanderpump Rules Location

hotel ziggy review taste of reality

After watching James Kennedy DJ a party at Hotel Ziggy on Vanderpump Rules, I knew it would be the perfect place to stay during a quick trip to West Hollywood.

The episode:

Hotel Ziggy was featured on season 11 episode 9 Kiss Kiss, Revenge Bang‘ of Pump Rules. Bravo TV fans may remember Billie Lee bringing her friend, Tii, to hang out with Sandoval during James’ poolside set. Also in this episode, Tom Schwartz‘s non-girlfriend, Jo, felt iced out by the female VPR cast members … Scheana Shay went so far as to try to remove Jo’s hat from her head after she made it clear she was uncomfortable. Not cool.

It’s safe to say, my husband and I had a much better time at Hotel Ziggy than Jo.

Location:

Found on the Sunset Strip at 8462 W Sunset Blvd, Hotel Ziggy is across the street from the World Famous Comedy Store and The Mondrian Hotel, as featured on The Valley. If you’re planning a Vanderpump/Valley location crawl, Hotel Ziggy is one mile/5 min drive to SUR, Pump/TomTom, Something About Her, and The Abbey. We felt the hotel was very walkable to the above mentioned VPR hotspots if you’re not driving or don’t want to use ride share.)

If you’re partaking in the full Cali experience, there’s a great cannabis dispensary across the street. Adults 18+ are able to browse URBN Leaf Dispensary‘s vast selection of Mary Jane, edibles, extracts, topicals, and vapes. The quality of their products were on-point and prices were surprisingly low … plus they give first time patient a discount on top of their sales!

I wasn’t able to get a decent picture of the exterior without risking getting hit by a car, so here’s a photo from Hotel Ziggy’s IG.

In the heart of the Sunset Strip, the impression you get from Hotel Ziggy’s exterior is consistent with the vibe inside. With rock and roll to its core, patrons are met with a vintage 70’s rock aura upon entering the boutique hotel. While WeHo feels like being transported to a different world, Hotel Ziggy takes you back to another time.

General vibe/Common spaces:

Hotel Ziggy is more than a hotel … it’s an experience. There’s a small concert venue on property as well as a pizza shop. Diners can either enjoy B-Side Pizza served poolside or in the hotel’s lobby.

Also, there’s a lounge on the fourth floor that featured plush sofas, a pool table, with ample areas to enjoy the atmosphere. There’s a really small fitness center on-site with a treadmill, elliptical, and free weights. The best part? Hotel Ziggy is dog friendly! Check the website information of fees and size requirements.

The room:

Guests can begin checking into their rooms at 3:00 PM and have a check out time of 12:00 PM. While the room was small, it was clean and the bed was cozy. I felt super snug in the hooded sweatshirt bathrobe (that I really wanted to purchase.)

We stayed on a Wednesday night and there was live music in the concert hall until 1am. The sound couldn’t be escaped by retreating to your room, so we got lucky that the musicians rocked … and the edibles we got at URBN Leaf Dispensary did their job and helped fall sleep despite the loud music.

The pool:

It’s not about the pasta, but it IS about the heated saltwater pool at Hotel Ziggy. This is a destination in its own right. I didn’t know how much I’d enjoy swimming in a non-chlorinated pool. As much fun as it would be to catch a poolside DJ set, it was nice staying at the hotel mid-week as I had the pool to myself.

Oh, can we talk about those city views?!?! Picturesque AF. (Yes, I love an ominous sky!)

Pro-tip: Inquire in getting a poolside room. They have these cozy outdoor seating areas and easy access to the pool.

Cost breakdown:

One cost for one night in a standard king room was $264.95. That included $35.94 in hotel taxes/fees. That did not include the $40.49 hotel ‘resort’ fees, and Valet for $65.

At the time of check out, our stay at Hotel Ziggy ended up putting us back $406.38. Mind you this was mid-week during non-peak times.

Overall:

Hotel Ziggy is a perfect pairing for a Vanderpump-themed adventure. Guests feel like rockstars in their time at the retro hotspot. However, if you’re a baddie looking for a more relaxing experience, Hotel Ziggy is probably not the best choice.

Would my husband and I come back? We look forward to it!
