To say that the once-dangerous, sorta-scuzzy Sunset Strip's changed would be an understatement. The short stretch of Sunset in WeHo is in demand, especially for those who are looking to put a hotel up. The area's experiencing a record number of new projects, says Bloomberg, and there sure are a lot of them hotels. (Maybe that has to do with the fact that WeHo had one of the highest hotel occupancies in LA County last year?) These five hotels are in various stages of the getting-built process—some are in the works now, others are just rumored— but they all reflect a big change to the Strip. Just look at what they'll be taking out.
