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 Rooftop Pool is worth the visit! Room was run down and old, probably cool 10 years ago and now just looks old but it serves its purpose. Honestly, as soon as I went up to the roof, I didn’t want to leave! I come to LA often and I always make a weekend of it and this is officially my new home away from home! The staff are also amazing! The bell and valet are the sweetest (thank you Zeno the bellman!) and our check in with Lynette was great. She’s the reason we even went up, she gave us drink tickets and told us to enjoy the pool while we waited for our room. 2 hours later she came up and gave us our keys. Great customer service!
We did a staycation at the SIXTY with the help of Veronica on the sales team. She was so wonderful to work with and made our stay perfect. We stayed in a corner suite and the room was chic and modern. We loved the black marble bathroom and the balconies were an added bonus!
The rooftop pool is a big draw to the property so my only complaint would be that it is near impossible to get two beds poolside in the summer as a hotel guest. I'm not sure how the reservation system works but we were confused when we heard people around the pool say they were not guests to their servers—yet tons of frustrated guests were lined up waiting to sit by the pool? Eventually we were able to work it out and enjoyed a full day swimming and taking in the sun. Would definitely recommend a pitcher of the sangria poolside!
Overall it was a great stay and we appreciate everything the team at the SIXTY did to make it special.
A cool chic hotel well-located in BH.
Valet parking will greet you when you arrive and ensure your bags make your room. If your room isn’t ready upon arrival then you are free to use the facilities including the Uber-cool rooftop terrace and pool.
As mentioned elsewhere the hotel is lowly lit although this wasn’t as dim as I’ve experienced elsewhere and was fine.
Our king suite was a good size except for the bathroom, which was a bit cramped especially when looking to dry oneself after a shower.
The mini bar is very well stocked whilst WiFi is good through the whole hotel.
We used the bar downstairs for pre and post-dinner drinks and the service was very friendly (thanks Chris!).
Given the plethora of restaurants in LA (Spago is 3-mins walk away) we didn’t get to eat in the hotel or try any of the spa/ gym facilities.
We would certainly recommend staying here.
