You Gotta See This: The Best Views in WeHo

Best view

Rolling hills. City skylines. The Sunset Strip. West Hollywood is a whole new world from a sky-high vantage point, and some area venues offer superb views.

WEHOville is creating a virtual photo album to showcase the most breathtaking, most impressive, most awe-inspiring views around. And we need you to help make it happen. Submit your photos of great WeHo-area views by email (editor@wehoville.com) or via Instagram (instagram.com/wehoville, hashtag #wehoviews).

To kick off the project, we visited some high-rise hotels and other local spots. Photographer Jon Viscott captured views from The London, Andaz, Sunset Tower and Standard Hollywood hotels and West Hollywood Library.
