Old Hollywood glamazon in Beverly Hills, with Art Deco interiors, a knockout pool scene and a swanky La Prairie Spa
The palette is a soothing SoCal blend of apricots and yellows mixed with the hotel’s now-iconic scheme of pink and green. Expect plush velvet and silk accents mixed with a clear 1940s opulence. Every design element is exquisite, every furnishing custom-made (think handcrafted armoires, tufted benches at the foot of canopy beds). From the statement-worthy grand staircase to the Venetian glass chandelier; the banana-leaf motif carpeting to the palm tree-lined exterior, every hotel feature emanates Old Hollywood glamour.
Bed and Bath
The 185 soundproofed guestrooms and suites are complemented by the hotel's 23 entirely unique bungalows. Each is adorned in a palette of pink and white and outfitted with a walk-in closet and sitting area, sumptuous bed(s) draped in designer linens, and a marble (pink, of course) bathroom, some of which have a separate shower and soaking tub. What the rooms lack in the way of high-tech design (no iPod docking stations here) they make up for in service and amenities, such as a much-welcomed fresh fruit basket and Fijibottled water upon check-in.
The California-meets-Mediterranean gardens bloom with aromatic flowers, herbs and vines year-round and are perfect for a meditative stroll. The La Prairie spa also offers another means to unwind; try the Travel Therapy massage if jet lag persists. Stop at the Polo Lounge for dinner (the McCarthy Salad is worth the splurge) or a cocktail and you might just witness a Hollywood heavyweight make a multimillion-dollar deal at a nearby table. The chic Fountain Coffee Room is famous for its french toast, burgers and soda fountain, which are all best enjoyed seated on the wrought iron grapevine barstools.
