amazing spa, great alert
Even if you aren't a hotel guest, get yourself over to this sanctuary situated inside the W Hotel Hollywood. Stress-busting spa treatments are exceptional and the nail services are the best in town. If you are on a budget opt for the wallet-friendly polish change and sip on complimentary Champagne while your nails are filed and polished to perfection. Take home some bliss from their boutique located on the ground level of the hotel.
love spa, but annoying staff.. i love treating myself to a facial/microdermabrasion at bliss spa hollywood. i usually shell out over $200 a visit once a month. i love the spa and atmosphere, however when i am spending over $200 i am very annoyed that the staff always tries upselling me something else that i "need" whether it's an additional service or 5 products at the counter. i also hate that they don't validate parking. however, i do like the student discount they have going on right now, and the women's locker room has amazing amenities. my skin does always look beautiful after leaving, just wish they weren't so judgemental and pushy.
Disappointing is not enough.
Worst experience of Spa ever. And I do travel a lot and use spas. First they had me wait for 40 minutes on a straight couch (not lounge chairs), freezing because the air conditioning is way to high when you are sitting still in a thin Bathrobe.
After going back to front desk, they finally announce there has been a mistake and the therapist is not available for another 1:45 min. Usually, if the spa would have offered great conditions with real steaming rooms (not 2 showers) and relaxing areas with real calm and lounging chairs, I might have stayed to wait. But none of these there...
If you are in LA and looking for a spa, to relax, I would try to find another place.
BEST SPA ON THE PLANET ! ☆☆☆☆☆.
IT WAS SO GREAT I HAD TO GIVE IT 5 STARS TWICE!
WOW I WAS SO enthralled to receive a personal email from the General Manager of the Spa in such an immediate fashion when solving my problems with my first booking that I HAD to run to sign up for CitySearch just to review this Spa! Glen Dellimore is an angel ! He runs an INCREDIBLE business with impeccable design and work-flow. I had done LITERALLY hours of research on CitySearch + Google etc., and was astounded to find that the #1 hotel also housing the #1 Spa in all of LA.
I am a mani/pedi addict. I paint and draw and design myself ( ohsobeit(dot)com ) so you can understand that anything painted on my body is in dire need of perfection. When I entered their facility I was in shock with the design, the service, the smell, THE RAINBOW OF PAINT COLOR SELECTION!. My nail tech Brandy Glenn was gorgeous and her work was flawless. It's been two days and my nails look as if she just finished applying the topcoat. AMAZING!
BLISS IS MY NEW FAVORITE SPA. I have no trouble recommending / buying my mom, my sister, my boyfriends mom, and every girlfriend I know a mani/pedi from your Spa for every birthday / special occasion. I am in awe of your facility and your ability to satisfy my need for sterility, service, and spunk.
I would love to promote this facility at any level.
I am staying in W Hollywood again on October 31st. It is my 1 Year Anniversary with my boyfriend and I am dying to get a manicure and pedicure at Bliss Hollywood. They had no nail techs scheduled for that day, and when I contacted them they said that they would PERSONALLY schedule one for me! WOW! WOW! WOW!
THANKS BLISS HOLLYWOOD 1 MILLION for your treatment and kick ass service. They mean the world to me!
Stylish, but Not My Style. I love, love, love, love Bliss Spas so I was thrilled when I saw they were opening a new location at the W Hollywood. I live in West Hollywood so the drive to Westwood (the other LA location that has been around for years) can sometimes be a bit of a headache. The sort drive over to Hollywood was already a plus for them. Just getting up to this new Hollywood spa is a Hollywood experience in itself. I believe I had to go past two (maybe three) velvet ropes to check in downstairs and from there I was then escorted upstairs to another check-in area. This probably isn’t the case if you have an appointment during the day, but I happened to visit at night. I can’t say enough great things about the staff- they are possibly some of the nicest and most helpful people I’ve ever encountered. Other pros to the Hollywood location are that they serve complimentary champagne and they are available 24-hours for hotel guests. If I were doing a bachelorette weekend or really wanted a Hollywood experience I would definitely choose this location. I think most people would probably be very please with the Bliss experience here, but I prefer the Westwood location for a few reasons. 1. I’m not going to lie, the free brownies in the lounge are possibly my favorite part of visiting Bliss. I believe that they are from Cookie Casa and they are incredible! However, tasting the ones at the Hollywood location, something seemed off; they didn’t have as much flavor as the other ones. I asked about them and the manager gushed about how Bliss Hollywood is the only spa to have a celebrity chef who makes these treats specially for them. I’m sure that’s a selling point for most, but I just wanted my Cookie Casa brownies. Another thing that I didn’t love about the Hollywood location, and this one probably pertains to more people, is that they don’t have Vichy showers and therefore don’t offer a lot of Bliss’s signature treatments. Finally, the vibe of this location is a lot more Hollywood and chic with modern décor and bright lights. When it comes to my spa experiences, I prefer a more relaxing, dimly lit environment, but to each is own. Overall, you really can’t go wrong with Bliss even if this location is a little too Hollywood for me.
Wonderful Escape!. I got a taste of what this amazing spa has to offer. I was very impressed at how the staff is so welcoming and go the extra mile to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed. From the moment you walk in, there is a champagne welcome and smiles, then you move on to see a variety of treats like mini brownies, cheese, candy, etc. This is not the typical yoga-like spa, where you listen to rain forest sounds or dolphins singing. This spa has a very soothing ambience that makes you forget what time it is as soon as you walk in, followed a feeling of letting go that makes you wan to stay for a while. I got a neck massage, facial oxygen treatment, and a manicure. All of this with the pleasure of chocolate brownies was the best. Went home feeling like I had just been on vacation. My next day was fabulous! I was relaxed, alert, focused, felt great! Working a stressful job in an office Monday-Friday can really be hard on the body; this will be my choice of escape to make my body and mind happy!
Citysearch Editorial Review. Located in the swanky W Hotel Hollywood, this outpost of the famed Bliss empire has all the cutesy charm and adorableness spa-goers have come to expect, but with a few more bells and whistles to enjoy. (After all, this is Hollywood, darling.) Guests--men and women, young and old, A-listers and um, even the unlisted--are given lots of tender loving care, starting with a glass of champagne, plenty of lollipops and other tiny edibles like cucumber slices, nuts, cheese and mini brownies. And lest we forget, there are plenty of spa treatments to be had, ranging from manis & pedis done on cushy elevated booths to massages, facials and body scrubs done in one of the seven treatment rooms. And unlike any other Bliss Spa location, 24-hour services are offered here, even for non-hotel guests. Simply call ahead to make arrangements.
