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
This hotel meets your expectations. Pricey, but upbeat, great poolside atmosphere and comfortable rooms. The staff is very pleasant. The restaurants on premise are very good and a good mix of casual by the pool to more trendy at the Polo Lounge. We love staying here as a family or as a couples getaway.
I called the beverly hills hotel to ask for an email for upper management on July 14 2018 at 4:35 pm and a young man answered from the front desk very unpleasant and unprofessional. He told me I could find the information on the website and I told the young man I had already searched and would appreciate if he could assist me or forward me to someone that could. He did not greet me, he did not state his name and when I asked his name he would not tell me and became very defensive/argumentive. I have always admired this property for stellar service but today I was very unhappy.
Great rooms, service so excellent you can easily flow thru the property with no problems. QUIET rooms, even better! The Restaurants, Spa, pool facilities are all A+++. Truly have earned the respect as well as excellent reputation that they have in the area.
Stayed to celebrate 25th anniversary. Service & accommodations are superb expected. It could use a little deep cleaning & updating. Poolside was madness with a ton of young Hollywood locals having fun & service was slow or non existent there. The manager read my review online when we checked out, we were 5 minutes out and he called us immediately to apologize & refunded all our poolside bills. Our dinner there was amazing. It's an old Hollywood iconic hotel, well preserved....it's pretty cool!
This is the classic Beverly Hills hotel. Old school but if you can afford it, stay here. The restaurant is brilliant and the pool is good. The hotel has a lot of character to it. The rooms are not too big but it is a warm hotel. Very expensive.
