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
We had some friends stay at the Sixty for a special awards event and we wanted to send them some congratulations bubbly. Mike the concierge helped us with incredible service and house champagne up to their room within the hour! And our friends adored the service and their stay.
I went up to LA to see a friend and mosey around town for a bit, and ended up staying at 60. Well, when I got there every person I interacted with was extremely friendly, and Gor, the gentleman at the front desk went above and beyond the call of duty and made sure I was set up. Let me tell you, he set me up. I don’t know why, but I feel like I haven’t had service like this, and I’ve stayed in a fair amount of high end hotels. Also, the room was incredibly nice. I got upgraded to the suite—I didn’t want to leave the room practically. When I got back from going out with friends, the gentleman at the valet made sure he parked my car in front so it was ready for me, and he was just a good dude. Like I said, everyone I interacted with was so awesome. Lastly, when I went to check out the gentleman at the front desk Andrew (I believe his name was), was very accommodating and helped me a lot with some issues I was having. So happy with this place and I’m hoping to come back at the end of Feb or early March again and stay there—I can’t imagine staying anywhere else now.
Sixty Beverly Hills was great for a one night stay. The hotel staff was very nice and they even upgraded us at no charge. Our room had a balcony and in the distance could see the Hollywood Sign which was pretty cool. The room was clean but small. We especially loved having lunch on lounge chairs by the rooftop pool. Overall, a great stay!
I stayed here two times in 2018 and have also recommended friends to this magnificent hotel. This year 2019, I stayed from the 31st of January to the 4th of February. Still the same awesome atmosphere just like the previous year. Situated right on Wilshire Blvd and having Crescent Drive and Canon Dr as cross streets. It’s a walking distance to world renowned Rodeo Drive and walking distance to restaurants, other stores and shops. The hotel is an excellent place for business, private and leisure visitors. Family with kids would also love this hotel. The Beverly Hills park is a walking distance. The hotel is also very easily accessible to guests with wheelchairs or impaired disabilities. There’s always someone nearby to open the doors if need be.
Hotel: The exterior is deigned in timeless Beige/Sand color and the unmistakable floor to ceiling dark windows.
Lobby: Entering the lobby you have the Concierge desk on your right. After traveling and visiting over 60 countries and counting, I can confidently say the front desk managers are some of the best I’ve come across. My favorites are : Gor, Abraham and Shohreh.
Abraham: I’ve only seen him during the morning shifts and he is absolutely awesome. Attends to your needs and always asking if you find everything Okay and if there’s still anything the hotel could do for you.
Shohreh: She’s that Sister you want to have, that manager you want to run your business and that person you want to have on your team. She’s Friendly, Calm, competent and welcoming.
GOR: Gor is for me the absolute best and top notch. Despite the fact that I’ve not been back at the hotel for over 7 months, he immediately recognized me and greeted me by name the moment I walked through the door despite the fact that he was attending to other guests. He always makes sure any complain I had was immediately taken cared of. He even moved me from the 7th floor to the 8th floor (Room 803) the moment there was availability as I wanted to have another view of the city after my second day. He is friendly, reliable and very competent. This guy loves his job and will be a competent manager in any organization.
Rooms ETC:The rooms are awesome, sparkling clean, comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. The rooftop pool is awesome and there’s a conference room, meeting room and lounge area on the second floor. Very comfortable and beautiful. The restaurant (Caulfeld) also has nice food. Even the valet service is awesome. Friendly staffs and very professional. My favorites at the valet service are Francisco and Gloria.. There’s no self parking though. Costs about $40 bucks for overnight parking.
Critic: Housekeeping woke me up by 8:30 in the morning asking me if I’m checking out despite the do not disturb sign on the door. I’m like... OMG if you have to wake someone up please do that maybe by 10:30. Check out time is 12 so there’s still enough time.
Overall, the owners and managers of this magnificent hotel can be very proud of themselves for this awesome property and for having such a great and competent team. I love this place.
The place is cool and is located in Beverly Hills near Rodeo Drive so you can walk around and find stores and restaurants at walking distance which is a luxury in LA where you have to use a car for almost everything.
