Opened in 1987, the 16-story tower wears its age well. The look in the public areas is West Coast opulent, with a collection of European art and antiques shown off against light, contemporary spaces and elements of Old Hollywood. Life-size bronze sculptures cast by artist J. Seward Johnson arrest attention in the lobby—that’s Marilyn Monroe and Vincent van Gogh by the entrance—and abundant bouquets of flowers, especially lilacs, perfume the air.
Bed and Bath
The rooms are spacious and California-hued, all creamy taupes, warm blues and blond woods echoing the Pacific sunshine. They have French doors to step-out balconies, and big marble bathrooms. Bonus points for smart technology: Hotel information is presented on an iPad rather than a bulky binder, and guests can download an app that will let them, say, order room service to be waiting for them when they get back from shopping, or another app that includes 130 workouts from local boutique gym Blue Clay Fitness (mats and resistance bands can be sent to guests’ rooms).
Chef Mette Williams revamped the menus at the flagship restaurant Culina, Modern Italian earlier this year, after winning her job on the reality TV show Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell. The uncluttered food ranges from delicate crudo and vegetarian antipasti to robust pastas and wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas. A wildly extensive Sunday brunch is a local institution. Guests can balance out the indulgences in a tricked-out gym and swanky outdoor pool (book a cabana), then relax in its results-driven spa, where cutting-edge facials and “beyond organic” products are specialties.
In the Area
The hotel is in the epicenter of swank L.A. shopping, with Rodeo Drive just a quarter mile away. Even closer is Robertson Boulevard, home to Intermix, Chanel, Tory Burch, Nanette Lepore, Ralph Lauren, Anya Hindmarch, and others, many of which offer exclusive discounts for Four Seasons guests. There’s an array of see-and-be-seen dining (where the food is good enough to match the scene), including Spago Beverly Hills, Cecconi’s and Chi Lin.
How to Get There
It is an amazing hotel which makes your stay excellent. The front desk and concierge are so amazing, and make you feel welcome, organising fantastic things for you instantly in a click. The hotel is great when you want a quiet part of Beverly Hills (despite some construction of the apartments next door which was not an issue) and want to be transported anywhere nearby in a Bentley. Housekeeping is more than perfect, thanks for noticing my toothpaste was running out. The Sunday lunch is soooo great! Breakfast is amazing too though it is only by the menu. Watch around for famous visitors! ;) Would definitely recommend it and stay here again. The pool area is amazing too with great food and a very friendly waiter. If you want a busier place in Beverly Hills on Rodeo drive ("Pretty woman" location and close to new downtown "Nakatomi tower"), their another hotel Wilshire by Four Seasons is probably the option. Overall, an amazing stay!
Still the best all-around luxurious and most peaceful place to stay in the area. There are numerous glitzy and lavish hotels all, but this is the one true gem that is quiet and elegant with superb service, facilities and, in particular, staff that is uniformly attentive and focused on the guest.
Such an amazing hotel with an attentive staff! The hotel is so beautiful and I would come back and stay at this hotel in a heartbeat. Definitely order room service when you can and enjoy the hotel’s amenities. Wonderful location and also you can text the hotel during your stay if you need anything!
Rooms were clean and the view was stunning.
My stay at the Four Seasons was wonderful. The rooms are spacious, well decorated and clean. The hotel staff couldn't be more attentive and helpful. They made it a point to greet me when I walked by and ask me how my stay was. The concierge staff was extremely helpful and the staff at the coffee bar, Vinoteca, was very welcoming. I would definitely stay here again. Awesome location and staff!
Wonderful service, attention, food and warmth. Best hotel I've ever stayed at and have been going 2-3 times a year for 28 years! The staff makes you feel at home, they all know your name and make sure you are always well cared for,
