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 was disappointed after staying at this hotel as I felt the price did not match the quality. Cool and hip hotel but poorly lit and in need of upgrades and maintenance repairs. The room had hardly any lighting making it challenging to unpack in the evening. Walls were cracked in multiple spots. The fan/ac made annoying noises throughout the evening.
Bar and valet staff especially were friendly. Location was great. Bed was comfortable enough.
Stayed here for 4 nights in July 2019. Check-in was quick, as was check-out. Room was clean and spacious, but very loud with street noise, even on a higher floor. Bed was comfortable, and the TV was nice and large. Pool and rooftop bar were both hits, great between 7 and 9 pm. Location was super, walking distance to coffee, Rodeo Drive, and some good dining spots. Breakfast at the restaurant was expensive, but food was very good quality. Would recommend this hotel!
Loved this hotel during our trip through California. We stayed there for 6 days. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the rooms big enough and clean. Our highlight was the rooftop pool and bar with a stunning view to the Hollywood Hills.
We also tried the Hotel Restaurant, which was quite expensive, but the food was great
