Upon entering the chandelier-filled lobby of Mr. C Beverly Hills, guests are met not with a front desk (which is hidden discreetly out of view) but with a sunken bar. It’s a fitting intro to the nouveau Rat Pack swagger of Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani’s hotel.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms reveal a fondness for leather, in a block palette of white, tan or red (the latter in the spacious suites). The bespoke trunks and enormous wooden cabinets were handcrafted in Italy, and the beds have tufted leather or burnished wooden headboards. Vintage film stills and black-and-white photographs adorn the walls, and there are unique details, such as TVs mounted on dark wood easels and minibars hidden in deep chests. The carrera marble bathrooms feature rain showers, double vanity sinks and Mascioni bathrobes and slippers. But the best perk is the view from the private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The ground-floor restaurant is quintessential Cipriani, with such Italian dishes as tagliolini al pesto Genovese and red mullet with lemon and capers, as well as pizzas topped with burrata, rucola and ham. The restaurant overlooks the 4,500-square-foot pool area, which is open to hotel guests only and has two cabanas (complete with chandeliers), plus a bar and a splurge-worthy spa. A glass pool table and extensive library complement the lobby’s buzzy sunken bar (and late checkout makes hangover recovery a breeze).
In the Area
Even Angelenos enjoy strolling down the pristine lanes of Beverly Hills’ tony shopping district (through they won’t admit it), including flagship-lined Rodeo Drive, where you’ll find Cartier, Prada and Louis Vuitton. Refuel with the stellar baked goods at the whimsical Sprinkles Cupcakes (which has its own cupcake ATM). Watch the deals being brokered over power lunches at the Ivy or Spago, Wolfgang Puck’s legendary restaurant, which got a 2012 face-lift. Take a picnic and enjoy the panoramic city views from the Richard Meier–designed Getty Center, a 15-minute drive away. Also nearby is the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA to locals), a 20-acre campus with a Renzo Piano building, alfresco cafés and cocktail joints, and more than 100,000 works of art.
How to Get There
Stayed at Mr. C Beverly Hills for business in 2018 and loved it! Exclusive, upscale but not too pretentious considering it is in fact Beverly Hills. Near Rodeo and Spago and pretty much everything Beverly Hills! Wish we were there for more than just business.
Weak service. Cold shower. Black water coming from the faucet. So-so food. This hotel exemplifies what’s wrong with being a normal person at a hotel trying to hard to be cool. I won’t be staying here again.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Mr. C over Thanksgiving last year and we have been converted to fans of the new chain. In fact, it made such a good impression we stayed at the Mr. C in New York as well.
Just walking into the hotel sets the tone; a large red carpet leads you into the lofty and open lobby made of dark wood and white marble, with classic furniture that gives it a glamorous Hollywood feel. Right behind the concierge is the bar, where we enjoyed fantastic drinks after days hanging around LA.
Our room was very spacious and let in a lot of light. The room was entirely white making it feel very open. There is a large balcony in each room with chairs and a little table on it, where we enjoyed coffee in the mornings, looking out over Beverly Hills. Playing off of the old-Hollywood vibe, there are also pictures of film icons like Marylin Monroe on the walls and lamps that look like film set lights in the rooms.
Since Mr. C hotels are owned by the Cipriani brothers, there was a Cipriani in the hotel, which means the food was fantastic.
We made use of the hotel car many times. It was a large SUV that can take you to places within a certain radius of the hotel. It made going to lunches and shopping much more convenient (Rodeo Drive is within the radius).
Overall, I couldn't have asked for more out of a hotel. Rooms are super stylish and have a personality, the service and food was excellent, and I think this will be our go-to hotel in LA from now on.
The reason I am rating this hotel a 5 is because of outstanding service by Brian at the Front desk each morning between 5-6.30 am when I went for a walk. Always willing to help, proactive and courteous he was v good.
Another big plus was the courtesy shuttle for a 3 km range. I used it twice and it was good. I did not have USD to tip once but made up the second time. Long time to call taxis but Uber was the nice alternative.
The breakfast restaurant Cipriani’s was good but could do with better service for its prices as the menu was a la carte. I had to request hot water and tea bags to be able to nurse my throat at night.
Should provide better facilities on basic like a complimentary small bottle in each room.
The lady at the bar was very nice and full of suggestions for a guest who visited me.
Example of how one person can make a difference.
Room is tired, bathroom is small and doesn’t work (shower is tough to handle, toilet got clogged), service is not good. Really disappointing. Carpet is old and dirty. A woman had tons of boxes and a trolley in the middle of the hallway.
