Immediately recognizable by its pink, hacienda-style facade and banana leaf-printed wallpaper, The Beverly Hills Hotel is an iconic landmark. It’s been a hideaway for Hollywood’s rich and famous for over a century — Howard Hughes, Fred Astaire, Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor were regulars. While keeping its Old Hollywood allure, the hotel has been modernly restored, from each of its 210 rooms to its private bungalows and famed diner, the Fountain Coffee Room.
Each three-bedroom Presidential Bungalow is outfitted with decor collected from the 1920s to today and has private landscaped gardens. The hotel’s pool is a Beverly Hills institution and looks plucked out of a film set with its striped and pale pink loungers and private cabanas.
Top suite: Presidential Bungalows 23 and 24 from $16,000 per night
Power dining: Some of Hollywood’s biggest deals have been made in the Polo Lounge. Enjoy the American fare with an Italian edge.
