The palette is a soothing SoCal blend of apricots and yellows mixed with the hotel’s now-iconic scheme of pink and green. Expect plush velvet and silk accents mixed with a clear 1940s opulence. Every design element is exquisite, every furnishing custom-made (think handcrafted armoires, tufted benches at the foot of canopy beds). From the statement-worthy grand staircase to the Venetian glass chandelier; the banana-leaf motif carpeting to the palm tree-lined exterior, every hotel feature emanates Old Hollywood glamour.
Bed and Bath
The 185 soundproofed guestrooms and suites are complemented by the hotel’s 23 entirely unique bungalows. Each is adorned in a palette of pink and white and outfitted with a walk-in closet and sitting area, sumptuous bed(s) draped in designer linens, and a marble (pink, of course) bathroom, some of which have a separate shower and soaking tub. What the rooms lack in the way of high-tech design (no iPod docking stations here) they make up for in service and amenities, such as a much-welcomed fresh fruit basket and Fijibottled water upon check-in.
The California-meets-Mediterranean gardens bloom with aromatic flowers, herbs and vines year-round and are perfect for a meditative stroll. The La Prairie spa also offers another means to unwind; try the Travel Therapy massage if jet lag persists. Stop at the Polo Lounge for dinner (the McCarthy Salad is worth the splurge) or a cocktail and you might just witness a Hollywood heavyweight make a multimillion-dollar deal at a nearby table. The chic Fountain Coffee Room is famous for its french toast, burgers and soda fountain, which are all best enjoyed seated on the wrought iron grapevine barstools.
How to Get There
I am loving this place , the staff is amazing , I can see why people live in this hotel . Perfect surroundings, wonderful colours , impeccably clean and I did not find one staff member not giving great attention to me . The polo club is wonderful and special thanks to jimmy who is wonderful at what he does and makes you feel like you are a regular ,which I will be when I come to BH . Food was excellent, rooms Are great even if I do find the converter for bang and olfsen tv a tad to heavy and confusing , shower is wonderful with amazing pressure . Is it expensive yes , but you haven’t worked hard all your life not to enjoy . So enjoy . I look forward to my return visit
I reserved the Beverly Hills Hotel thru one of the online hotel booking site in March, upon confirm my reservation, the hotel charged me 50% deposits directly ( usually money is collected by the booking site, not the hotel itself). Subsequently, I cancelled my reservation within the cancellation period and I got a cancellation confirmation stating that I will be fully refunded by the hotel for the deposit the hotel charged me. Now it is May and I have not received my refund yet.... I have contacted the online hotel booking site to help me with this issue and I am still waiting to get my money back. Fellow travelers, beware !
Stayed here and the hotel was beautiful. Lovely staff, lovely facilities. The service we received was amazing.
Enjoyed spending the day by the pool soaking in the California sun. Couldn't have asked for a better day.
I was actually excited to try the BHH for the Easter Weekend. I had heard many good things about the Polo Bar and pool setup. Staying on the property I experienced many more letdowns in customer service than any of the other comparable properties in LA (ie Peninsula, Waldorf, Bel Air, etc). Any of these issues in isolation would have been worth overlooking but all together it was a problem. Forgetting to deliver my eggs in a room service breakfast order although charging them on the bill (“our apologies, Mr Fleming”), no problem. Telling me they were upgrading my room (to a larger room with a great view) but really downgrading me to a lower floor with a view of the parking lot (“That was really not our intent Mr Fleming but we do understand how you could see it that way”). Annoying. Finding out that they moved me from the other room because they needed a connecting room to a suite (“I’m sorry Mr Fleming but you cannot have your original room back. We needed it for the connecting suite next door”)...more annoying. Forgetting to transfer one of my bags from the previous room and leaving it in hotel storage until I called for it two days later, annoying. Canceling my tennis workout (time and location were arranged with the concierge the day before) because I didn’t answer my cell phone during dinner to allow them to double confirm - no message in my room, no note in my room...only a missed phone call from the hotel on my cell phone. I found out the workout was canceled when I stopped by the front desk in the morning right before the scheduled lesson. Incredibly frustrating. My advice would be to stay at the Bel Air Hotel, Waldorf or Peninsula and visit the Polo Bar.
We used the Maurice hotel in Paris part of the Dorchester the weekend before so decided to come and check out this place and decided to have a look around the premises and get some lunch at the polo lounge couldn’t fault it great lunch and impeccable service .
I checked out the whole place thanks to concierge , the pool area is fantastic and will return with the family .
