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
Boutique style hotel but a bit short on 'hotel' amenities.
Location is a bit twixt and between with not too much of interest around the hotel. Rodeo Drive is close but not as interesting as you'd imagine and there's not much else around for a visitor to LA.
Reception is dark and dingy and the staff there are a mixed bunch, some clueless but others really helpful and friendly. The valet team were very good.
Our room was on the upper floors and was okay with a 70's-80's vibe but not really in a good way. It was a bit weird but the bed was comfortable and house keeping okay. Floor to ceiling windows let in a lot of light though. The bathroom was tiny, well shower room really and quite nicely done out in black marble and pearlized mosaic tiles. Toiletries were more than ample and very good to use. No soundproofing to the outside though, continual traffic noise, neighboring a/c units etc but you are in a big city so...
Breakfast at the hotel was not very good - small utilitarian space and limited left field menu with sky high prices. We tried it once only. Staff were pleasant enough though.
Roof pool was something an nothing as well but seemed quite popular and the bar staff were okay but not terribly pro-active in service. A lift did break down so it took ages to get to the roof pool and the other floors too.
For a tourist to LA I think there are better areas to stay in than Beverly Hills but then that name does have a magnetic pull!
The Sixty Beverly Hills is in a good location but based on the room quality and amenities actually in the rooms, I wouldn’t consider it a 4-star hotel. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful though they were not fluent in English so we had some communication problems. We found the rooms to be small and not all of the rooms are as pictured on the website. I would not recommend this hotel for families with small children.
The rooms were still being cleaned when we checked in at around 5:30 in the evening. To avoid waiting around with a wailing toddler, we decided to go with a “renovated” King Deluxe room on the 2nd floor. The room was very small and ridiculously dark, with one small rectangular window, and a bathroom with practically no counter space. Not at all like the King Deluxe room pictured on the website. Luckily, we were able to get a room upgrade for our last 2 nights to a room on the 6th floor which actually looks like the King Deluxe pictured on the website. Another annoyance was the $400 hold placed on our credit card for incidentals after the front desk staff member stated there was only going to be a $150 hold. Also, there were no robes or coffee maker in either room. I was able to get an electric water kettle from housekeeping.
A huge Thank you to the Assistant Manager Dustin !! :_)
I greatly appreciate his help in getting my daughters dress to us. We had a wonderful trip and stay at Sixty Beverly Hills Hotel, and the dress completes the memory !
If you ever forget an item. Just breathe and ask for Justin!
Very bad experience!!! We were living in the Double Deluxe room and there were a bunch of hair on the bathroom wall. i found blonde strands of hair on the bathroom walls while taking a bath. Our hair is dark brown so it could not belong to us. Apparently the hair were from last guests. It was very disgusting and gross. It was the worst hotel that we ever been to. Beside the hotel was very old and lighting condition was poor. It was very awful experience. we will never go back again.
My daughter and I recently stayed here on a girls trip. We loved everything about this hotel. From the reception desk to the valet service to the restaurant service...we only had great experiences with friendly, professional and courteous people. I can't say enough about everyone we met. Also, loved the rooms (clean, cute and functional) and the area the hotel is situated in is great for walking to shops, restaurants and cute neighborhoods for nice quiet walks in the morning or evening. I travel a lot, and this hotel ranks as one of my favorites. Rooftop pool was also amazing.
