Los Angeles, CA – Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is nearing the completion of its exciting $33 million renovation. The Ballroom, Windows Lounge, Cabana Restaurant, and pool with new luxury cabanas, and all guest rooms and suites have been finished. Culina, Modern Italian, the new signature restaurant, will debut in early March.
“We are very excited about the recent enhancements to the hotel,” explains General Manager Mehdi Eftekari. “The completion of the new design allows us to offer an even more impressive hotel which complements the renowned personalized service from our experienced staff.”
As the international hub for entertainment industry events, Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is a home away from home to an impressive list of decision makers within the industry. The vision at hand was to modernize the preexisting traditional style interiors, while incorporating elements of classic Four Seasons flora and invoking the rich history of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
The newly-renovated 4,000 square-foot Ballroom reflects a return to California chic and understated charm. The expansive arched windows are now revealed to give natural light to this elegant ballroom. A palette of creamy neutral tones amid the standing traditional architecture complemented with delicate shears, and a contemporary garden inspired carpet design, hone in to sophistication for the perfect wedding or event.
Windows Lounge has long been a gathering place for the Hollywood crowd. The updated Lounge incorporates elements of nature throughout using sumptuous hues of fresh spring greens and rich browns. With an eye on hip and moody chic, new features include a backlit photographic glass bar top that exhibits an image of succulent foliage, and a green onyx fireplace graces the centre of the Lounge and wooden wine cabinets. Adjacent to the Lounge, the patio has been expanded and includes additional seating for up to 25 persons with two additional wrought iron cabanas that provide both ambiance and privacy. This beautiful space of outdoor living is also complemented by the newly planted orange trees, bougainvillea and lush greenery.
Upstairs on the 4th floor at the Cabana Restaurant and upper pool terrace, a new awning covers the seating with discreet heaters fixed into the awning to warm up these cooler evenings in Southern California, as well as new lighting and an outdoor sound system. Cabana Restaurant also features a new menu divided into playful categories such as “Indulgence,” “Energy Booster,” “Antioxidant,” “Comfort” and “Kid’s Corner.”
The design of the guest rooms nods to the timeless glamour of 1940s Hollywood, with elegantly mirrored wall paneling and white-gold contemporized chinoiserie headboards. The palette is composed of warm tans, fair woods, and an elegant infusion of teal or coral depending on the guestroom. The tan carpet features a slightly abstracted aqua pattern of spherical flora, a modern tribute to the Four Seasons long standing tradition of incorporating the softest elements of nature. Additional subtly to the room include vibrant blue bolsters that bounce off the champagne linens and leaf patterned throw at the foot of the bed. A matching throw pillow decorates the upholstered, tan armchair with stitched in aqua details that hint of blooming foliage. Each bathroom has been updated with elegant glass closures for the shower/bath tub area, new flat screen TVs, and new contemporary fixtures and vanity.
