This luxe sleep in the heart of Beverly Hills’ Golden Triangle exudes vintage Hollywood style while still being awash in modern luxury. All 201 guestrooms and suites are spacious given the tony address, with a sophisticated palate of creams and golds and thoughtful extras like electronic drapes and big marble bathrooms. Rooms look out over Beverly or Canon Drives or the Beverly Canon Gardens from private balconies. Scarpetta is one of the best Italian restaurants in the nation, let alone L.A., and the 20,000-square-foot spa is one of Cali’s best, with treatments ranging from deep tissue massage to post-plastic surgery facials. The sun-splashed rooftop pool is a scene unto itself with private cabanas and farmers’ market fare, signature smoothies and craft cocktails from The Conservatory Grill.
In the Area
There’s more to Beverly Hills than shopping on Rodeo Drive, though of course a walk down the famed street is a must, even if just for window shopping. Stop at Urth Caffe for a casual lunch and a cup of their signature coffee — it’s a locals’ haunt through and through (which in L.A. means celebs included). If you’re looking to get your culture fix in, it’s worth the 20-minute drive to the Getty Museum, which showcases European painting and sculpture as well as Greek and Roman antiquities — while still offering one of the best vistas of the city. Farther afield is the Malibu Golf Club, a William Francis Bell–designed course with gently rolling topography, perfect for a day spent admiring the landscape.
How to Get There
Where do I begin... I hope that the Montage will keep these two Uber talented chefs pop in place! Ludo and Gilles... don’t miss it. Last day is September 29th. The lunch prix fix at $29 is a steal. The food is amazing! Outstanding! Go hurry now and take me with you again!
We were at the Montage for 2 days during a California vacation. The staff is welcoming, professional and so kind. Thanks to Kevin at registration,we were able to upgrade our room to a suite. Our kids raved about the rollaway and pull out couch and the king bed was heaven. The room and bathroom were spotless. We enjoyed the quiet while sitting on the balcony. We’ll definitely be coming back!
The Montage in Beverly Hills gets its attention from the classical feel and interior of the hotel. I would say that the only good points would come from the prestigious location near Rodeo Drive, meaning easy access to luxury brands and shopping, as well as its popularity amongst celebrities. However, the service at the hotel was VERY disappointing. Firstly, the cleaning services provided for the suite that my family and I had booked was nowhere near as impressive and meticulous as other 5 star hotels that I have stayed at. Every time our rooms would get cleaned it would feel as though the service was done lazily. Yes, the beds were made, and the towels were taken. But it is the little details that count. There was NO bowls, plates or glasses of any kind. The mugs that were available for coffee would never get cleaned nor replaced by new ones after they had been used. Water bottles from the hotel were rarely provided (this would force us to use the water in the mini bar which means this was probably done on purpose). Their cleaning was clearing lacking in precision.
As part of the package we had purchased, our family would have an included breakfast every morning. Around 8-10AM, we would go to the rooftop restaurant. As soon as I enter the restaurant, it is clear that the lady at the counter who greets us is unpleased. It is as if the employees there do not want anyone to come and have breakfast. After being seated, we have to wait a while until a waiter decides to come from the back and get our order even though the restaurant is so obviously empty. And when they do, they give off an attitude like they don't want to be here. The food is unsatisfactory for such a highly rated place. And there have been constant moments where they would foolishly mess up the order. An example? There is a salmon bagel with cream cheese, onions and cucumbers on the breakfast menu. We decided to order one for take away with only cream cheese and cucumbers. (Keep in mind I has just ordered the exact same thing to the same waiter and just wanted one for a member of the family staying in our suite). Not checking the bag until we arrived it seemed they had only put a bagel with both butter and long cucumbers on the side which would not fit in the bagel. It was clear that there was no care with the handling of our orders.
I would only recommend this hotel because of its location, but other than that, the Montage does not meet the standards of a 5 star hotel.
