Renowned architect and designer Dodd Mitchell was a key player in the renaissance of Hollywood thanks to the landmark Roosevelt Hotel, and he brings the same glam to the 90210 with SIXTY Beverly Hills. Mitchell merges a dark urban modernism with a bachelor pad party den. Black walls are hung with light boxes featuring Steve Klein’s life-size fashion photography, and staff are decked out in custom uniforms by Theory.
Bed & Bath
All 107 guestrooms, including one-bedroom suites, the signature SIXTY Suite and the eighth-floor Penthouse Suite, are inspired by the yin-yang of 1960s Hollywood glamour and the swinging bohemian New York of the 1970s and ’80s. In King Suites, richly grained oak floors and stark white walls mingle seamlessly with black leather chairs, a silver ball hanging light and glossy magazine artworks. The focal point is a platform bed fronting a leather wall with inlaid mirrors. Ceiling beams plated with more mirrors confirm the hotel’s kinky streak.
Every nook of this hotel buzzes. For a bite, the lobby level restaurant has morphed from Bond Street sushi into Caulfield’s American bistro. The new moniker pays homage to the rebel from J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, but the menu by executive chef Stephen Kalt steers clear of phoniness. Sit on a back banquette by the “literary” mural and try favorites like marinated skirt steak with soy, ginger, fingerling yams and anticucho sauce. The Salon has a cozy lounge/library vibe, or take the brown leather–padded elevators up to the top floor and relax at the rooftop pool, amid the firepits, sofas and beautiful people. The best way to hang at the pool is in a posh cabana — there’s a strict guest-only policy, but you’ll want to book yours early. It’s well worth the effort, because from these heights you can’t beat the people watching or the view.
In the Area
Even if you’re only window shopping, have a stroll down Rodeo Drive for all the top brands, from Van Cleef & Arpels to Zengo. The latest foodie buzz in Beverly Hills surrounds BierBeisl’s schnitzel, spatzle and sausages with schnapps. SIXTY Beverly Hills doesn’t have a spa, so if you want to indulge in a diamond, caviar or 24K facial, the way the stars do, head to the Hotel Bel-Air’s new La Prairie Spa.
How to Get There
I travel to BH annually and this was my first time at the Sixty and definitely not my last! I wanted a peaceful and relaxing vacation and the Sixty was the absolute perfect setting. From the stunning rooftop pool with panoramic views of the city to the cozy bed and room stocked with luxurious Maison Margielia products, I felt truely relaxed and pampered. The staff, especially the concierge, were so wonderful in helping me plan solo day trips and recommending great restaurants, hikes and outings for me to explore. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to any traveler be it solo, couple or even a family. I can't wait to come back again!
I’ve stayed at Sixty Beverly Hills many times. The Sixty team always makes me feel welcome, at home and very special. Front desk team are very friendly, concierge team are very helpful and Alain in Resevations is the BEST! I love the new and improve bathroom amenities. They smell so good! I’m looking forward to my next visit in June and few more stays after that! Keep up the good work Sixty Beverly Hills Team!
Michael (Concierge) was amazing! I needed to send something to a guests room prior to their check-in and Michael responded quickly and put the plan into place immediately, a huge help to me and added luxury for the guest. Thanks Michael!
WE stayed five nights as part of a girls week in LA. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the location was convenient to shopping and restaurants. It was also convenient to have a restaurant in the building for breakfast and when we came back exhausted from a day of touring.
We had driven from San Fransisco in our Mustang Convertible along the Pacific Coast Highway. We braved rush hour traffic and driven along Malibu Beach and to Santa Monica before turning to head east into LA. We arrived at the hotel in reasonable time, I didn't think the traffic was that bad and at least the roads are wide (try Brompton Road in London at rush hour!). This is one time when Valet Parking pays off as the hotel is in the middle of Beverley Hills, just a short walk from Rodeo Drive.
The staff were all amazing and we first headed for the rooftop pool terrace and bar. Yes drinks are expensive, but hey try the bar at The Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge, or Harvey Nichols 5th floor. We had not booked for dinner on that evening, but we met a lovely lady who turned out to be the General Manager of The Luxe Hotel on Rodeo Drive (you will see why this was significant if you read my Review of Mastro's Stekhouse, she recommended). The next morning we only had a day and a half, so asked the concierge for advice. He was fantastic. Advised us we could drive and park cheaply ($2) in the Beverly Centre and visit the stars on Holywood Boulevard, the Chinese Theatre and make sure we also did the tour of the Theatre where the Oscars are staged. He also booked us a tour of the stars homes in Holywood Hills.
The hotel were great and it is a fantastic location. Definitely go back.
