Whether it’s named after Ziggy Marley or Ziggy Stardust, Hotel Ziggy will take you back to your Rock and Roll roots. It is a fun lively new experience on the world famous Sunset Strip.
Hotel Ziggy is crusading to keep the spirit of the Sunset Strip, an epicenter of music culture, alive and rooted in counterculture and originality. It really checked all of my staycation boxes. Hotel Ziggy is a gathering place for the creative types of LA, as well as a home base for visitors who want to be immersed in the Strip’s rebellious roots, while having a little too much fun at their relaxing, alluring saltwater pool. It’s both a boutique hotel and a neighborhood hangout for locals. The pool offers live DJ sets, lounge chairs, bar service, and swim up guest rooms that serve as your private poolside cabana.
Backbeat is their own live music venue in the lobby. There’s a revolution going down at Hotel Ziggy, hipsters, musicians alike are all flocking to their Sunday night jam. A weekly lineup of local bands, DJs, and events adds to this festive new spot in West Hollywood.
B-Side Restaurant – Here’s What I Tried:
American Breakfast, with 2 eggs, hash browns, chicken apple sausage, house made biscuit. Their house made biscuit will knock your socks off, a truly memorable breakfast.
Egg Sandwich, toasted English muffin, fried egg, American cheese, sausage patty. It is a bit spicy, but a very meaty hearty sandwich. This breakfast is a great way to start your day off.
Thai style Ribs. This was my favorite dish at the Ziggy Hotel, tender, flavorful, perfection.
Truffle Fries, wow, wow, wow, is all I can say.
Caesar Salad with Chicken, the greens are perfect and the chicken breast adds the just the right amount of protein.
Smash Burger with house ground prime chuck, fiscalini farm house cheddar, pan-roasted onions, lacto-fermented dill pickles, Calabria Chile aioli, and arugula. This burger is out of this world, made very simply but hit all of the right notes.
Arugula Salad, with Parmesan reggiano, toasted pine nuts, shaved fennel, and lemon anchovy vinaigrette. A version of this salad came with my Egg Sandwich and was very delicious.
Meat Balls, you get 3 huge meatballs; bathed in a lovely marinara sauce, just what the doctor ordered.
Free Bird Cocktail, with Vodka, ginger simple syrup, lemon, raspberries, and honey. This cocktail is fun and fresh, it will go down super easy.
There are wonderful elements of the 60’s and 70’s everywhere. The pool boasts a large mural looking very much like Peter Max did it himself. When you first walk in, the chandeliers are all vintage insides of speakers. The photos and art work all over shows that this epic period resonates on. Having been a teenager during this period I can remember lots of the great recording artists and the impression they made on me. All and all it’s a fine trip down memory lane that brings you back like it was yesterday.
My room was just the best. It had just been remodeled and reopened. I was told that I had the premiere room in the hotel. It is a suite with lots of great extras. Headphone to record podcasts, a turntable, and large bed, with a view of The Strip. The staff treated me like a queen, with all of the accoutrements. It was my home away from home for my 2 nights. It is so centrally located, you really can do and see so much while enjoying this reinvented hotel.
