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
The minute I walked into this place, the smell throughout the hotel was offensive. There was no escaping it - instant headache. If that wasn't bad enough, the rooms (myself, my boss and a coworker all had separate rooms) were outdated and extremely dirty and again another foul odor permeating the room. Carpets, vents, moldings, all dirty and old. Honestly, I didn't want to stay after I checked in, but we sucked it up and spent the night. No top sheets were provided and damp linens were covering the bed, the pillows were so flat, I couldn't fall asleep. The lighting was awful and very dark, probably to mask the dirt. I couldn't wait to get out of this place! Everything was outdated and old. Oh, and try and get your car from the valet. There was one woman running around jockeying all the cars. Not good when you have to be at work on time. The place seemed like a ghost town, not many guests. PS pool did not look clean either. Maybe the view was impressive, but the flooring, etc. was decrepit. NIGHTMARE on WILSHIRE!!!
Very good ambiance. Awesome view from the rooftop bar. There is a nice enclosure for small group gatherings. Very cosy. The seating was very comfortable. We had appetizers passed out at the gathering. This was done very nicely. Friendly staff who kept the food coming at right intervals. Awesome vegetarian and vegan options. Great service.
I stayed for 2 nights and it was nice. It is pricey but is normal through this area close to the Rodeo Drive. It’s close to many restaurants and to Rodeo Drive. The restaurant and pool bar is expensive but nice service. If you’re looking for a hip and trendy place, this is your hotel. The rooftop pool is small but fabulous.
When I booked this hotel it was because of the location. I was not expecting it to be a great hotel. I was pleasantly surprised! From check in, to the bar and pool on the rooftop it was great. The room was nicely decorated, bathrooms nice. Fragrance throughout the hotel (they had defiantly thought about the details). All the staff friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend this hotel. FYI-I'm not easily pleased when it comes to hotels as I am in the industry I notice everything!
Michael was great. I called to get a bottle of wine sent to my GF for her first day of work and he was extremely helpful and gave it to me for free. He was extremely friendly and helped excited to help me
