For most travelers, the elevator ride is the least memorable part of a hotel experience. Riding up to your suite and back down to the lobby is hardly an exciting turn of events. But what if you had a cocktail in hand, say, from your own personal bartender? At W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills, the new Sip N Lift Cocktail Caddy serves signature cocktails from STK Los Angeles and The Living Room Bar as guests travel between floors. Personal bartenders are crafting cocktails like the Strawberry Cobbler for guests to “sip n lift.”

“Our Sip N Lift Cocktail Caddy gives guests the chance to enjoy one of the delicious cocktails served at STK Los Angeles from the moment they step into the lift up to their room,” said James Wroblewski, General Manager of W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills, in speaking to Elite Traveler. “W LA is always looking for inventive ways to surprise our guests and the Strawberry Cobbler cocktail is the perfect way to kick off a Saturday night.”

When you step into the elevator, make sure you’re taking it up to the Extreme Wow Suite. The property’s top accommodation spans 1,350 sq ft and is complete with a private screening room. The suite also includes a king-size pillowtop bed, bathroom with double sink and bathtub, kitchen, wet bar, dining and living areas to unwind with the latest Hollywood blockbuster on one of the flatscreen TVs. Then, indulge with an in-room spa treatment by Bliss Spa.

W Los Angeles is located at 930 Hilgard Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90024. For more information, please visit
