Got Millennials looking for a chic, rooftop pool in a trendy Los Angeles neighborhood? Tell them to take a dip at the pool at Andaz West Hollywood.

Andaz’s rooftop pool is said to be one of the highest in Los Angeles and, because of that, offers stellar views of the Hollywood Hills, downtown and, on a clear day, the Pacific Ocean.

Also, be sure to tell travelers with a taste for nightlife about Andaz West Hollywood's "Sundeck Sessions." DJ J. Roberts plays soulful house music every Saturday during the summer from 2 to 6 p.m. The pool has a capacity of 33 people and its sundeck has a capacity of 150 people. Advisors should note that the sundeck can be rented out by contacting the sales department at 323-656-1234. The sundeck should be booked 3-6 months in advance.

For Millennials looking for a creative cocktail, there is a poolside bar and the signature drink is called the Marilyn Monroe Lemonade, which is made with Three Olives Vodka's special Marilyn Monroe Strawberry Vodka flavor and frozen lemonade.

Guests with an appetite can take their taste buds on a trip to the Mediterranean with the popular hummus and pita chip plate, which includes roasted red pepper, pine nuts and kalamata olives. Or, they can try the fresh crudite plate, which includes jicama, cucumber, carrots, celery, peppers, broccoli, cherry tomatoes and buttermilk ranch.

Millennials looking to relax for a good cause should rent the Andaz's "RED Cabana," which was introduced last year and is now available for summer bookings. Thirty percent of it’s proceeds go to the RED campaign to help fight AIDS in eight African countries. 

Andaz West Hollywood has 239 rooms. Formerly known as the Riot Hyatt in the 60’s and 70’s because of the legendary rock star after parties held there, Andaz West Hollywood also brings L.A.’s culture inside and directly to its guests with activations like the Salon Art exhibit, featuring rotating collections from up-and-coming local artists, as well as a photo of Led Zeppelin’s leading man, Robert Plant, at the hotel in the 70s. 

Also paying homage to its rock n’ roll roots is Riot House Restaurant, serving craft cocktails. The property offers a nightly complimentary wine hour in the lobby, and has a 24-hour fitness center. If guests would rather workout outdoors, the gym also offers maps of running trails in the area.
