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
My girlfriends and I travel all over the world. We happen to live in Southern California and did not realize what a gem we had just 40 minutes from our house!
From the moment we arrived we felt like princesses.
When we checked in we had the most charming young man, Brooks, he took such good care of us and was such a sweetheart.
Our room wasn’t quite ready as it was supposed to be so he did everything he could to make everything all better and he certainly did!
Brooks if you get to read this we cannot tell you how much we appreciated you! First impressions are always what sets the stage.
The cocktails were amazing in the Polo lounge. We stayed in one of the bungalows it was so private and tucked away. We loved it.
When we walked out the doors housekeeping smiled and greeted us then we saw some people from maintenance or Engineering and they greeted us with a smile. You just usually don’t see that because employees and staff are usually so busy they don’t take the time to greet guests. This was a really pleasant surprise. This is now one of my top hotels! Just because it’s in Beverly Hills doesn’t always mean it’s going to be amazing but in this case it was. Thank you so much thank you thank you for making our stay so ABSOLUTELY MAGICAL!!!
Awesome place to stay, I and my wife are really lucky to find this place, totally recommend this place. Booked this place via PRIVATEUPGRADES, Lots of freebies, discounts, and fabulous deals. Once again I highly recommend this place you won't regret this!
I have just returned after a fabulous 3 night stay at the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel to celebrate my 50th birthday. The staff all made us so welcome, took great care of us and made my birthday so special. I am so lucky to have been able to stay at my favourite all time hotel again which has a remarkable homely feel and a personal touch which makes all their guests feel so special. The spa treatments were fantastic, the room was gorgeous and tranquil and the perfect way to both start the day and end the day. The service was exceptional and the food delicious. I love everything about the pink palace and especially the attention to detail, standards and quality. Your team in the fountain coffee room are amazing, so friendly, eager to please, hard working and organised and professional. Being a keen gardener myself and having some florist experience, i love the exotic feel, the plants, gardens and displays. Next time i visit i would love a guided tour of hotel and grounds. Everything was amazing from treats in the room to the hotel car and chauffeur. I visited the gift shop to purchase memorabilia and merchandise and i just adore the book 'the first 100 years'. I will treasure both the book, the story and the memories i have had on many visits to the hotel and hopefully i will be fortunate enough to visit again oneday. Thankyou again to all the wonderful hardworking staff and to the executive office who made our trip such a magical highlight and end to our California trip. By the way, ive had many thoughts and sleepless nights since being home and someone needs to make an epic movie or series of how it all began with a huge budget of course. We have Downton Abbey to brag about but what about the Beverly Hills Hotel?? Just imagine the costume and glamour and story(ies) to tell.
