Like its neighbour in Bel Air, the Beverly Hills Hotel is part of the Dorchester Collection; giving it the stamp of approval from this high-end luxury hotel group.
This famed, iconic property, affectionately known as ‘The Pink Palace’, takes pride of place on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles; a prime position for making the most of this vibrant city and with the designer names of Rodeo Drive on your doorstep.
Some 208 rooms and 23 charming bungalows ensure there is an accommodation option to suit the size and desires of your party, with all being set in 12 acres of tropical and fragrant gardens perfect for an afternoon amble in the LA sunshine. The secluded private bungalows are favoured by the A-list crowd both past and present, with the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Charlie Chaplin and Frank Sinatra having stayed within their luxurious bounds.
The gorgeous palm-tree lined pool (which you may recognise from many Hollywood classics such as ‘Designing Women’, starring Gregory Peck and Marilyn Monroe) is the perfect spot to retreat to after a day of shopping or visiting the iconic sights of Los Angeles. Here guests can laze around in one of the private cabanas and enjoy complimentary seasonal ‘pop up refreshments’ served throughout the day. The Spa by La Prairie is also worth a visit for a tranquil treatment or energizing yoga session.
Retire to Bar Nineteen 12 for a signature cocktail and to watch the spectacular California sunset before dinner at the famous Polo Lounge for an evening of fine dining accompanied by live entertainment or the chilled-out sound of Jazz. A ‘must do’ during your stay is the elegant Sunday Brunch served on the Polo Lounge terrace, with dishes made famous by the hotel’s clientele, such as the deliciously healthy McCarthy Salad.
