Hotels in Beverly Hills
The $38 million facelift this Beverly Hills classic completed in 2012 may just be the best cosmetic work to come out of La-La Land.
On a prime swath of Los Angeles real estate, this Spanish-style 201-room hotel mixes old-Hollywood touches with modern glam. Mediterranean elements skip from star lanterns and hand-painted tiles to lacy grillwork and brawny furniture with dark wood frames and nailhead trim.
Minutes from Rodeo Drive, this sleek, Asian-inspired hotel is a favorite with visiting fashionistas (no less than Giorgio Armani stays here when he’s in town, and Julia Roberts makes appearances, too).
Also known as the “Pink Palace,” this landmark hotel is housed in a pale-pink stucco building surrounded by tropical gardens. Originally built in 1912, the property is a gathering spot for the Hollywood elite, with former patrons ranging from Elizabeth Taylor to Paris Hilton.
Combine Philippe Starck’s exuberant interiors with the genius for tapas of chef José Andrés and the retail vision of design curator Murray Moss, and you have a hotel unlike any other.
As luxurious and understated as a perfectly cut Armani suit, the Beverly Wilshire is, appropriately, just steps from iconic Rodeo Drive boutiques like Versace and Cartier.
This boutique hotel near the Beverly Hills shopping corridor is aptly named; its lobby lounge is decorated in mosaic-tile accents. Out back, palm trees and lounge chairs surround a private heated pool.
Manhattan hotelier Jason Pomeranc couldn’t have picked a more incongruous spot—a former Best Western—for his third West Coast outpost.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills features a 6,000-square-foot rooftop garden, complete with palm trees, wisteria, and jasmine, where guests can dine alfresco and sip cocktails under the stars. Designed by James Northcutt, the property prides itself on extraordinary service.
Hidden down a tree-lined street, this hotel’s three separate buildings are all decorated in quirky, Nixon-era style: Lucite tables in the curvilinear lobby, rosewood and bamboo accents in all 84 rooms, and enough Eames-style chairs and modern light fixtures that you won’t need to visit L.A.’s Arc
