Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

In the famous Bel Air neighbourhood nestled in the Los Angeles Hills in one of the USA's most exclusive neighbourhoods. The residents may exude the glamour and wealth of old Hollywood but Bel Air itself has a youthful atmosphere with a vibrant restaurant and bar scene.

Rooms at Hotel Bel-Air

Tasteful and sleek, the rooms and suites are decorated in a mid-20th-century Old Hollywood style with a fresh, neutral colour palate. Some have private patios or balconies, wood-burning fires and private pools. The Speciality Suites are the premium accommodation offerings. The Swan Lake Suite sits – not surprisingly – right next to the hotel’s swan lake, tucked into flourishing gardens; the Presidential Suite is perfect for entertaining with a chef’s kitchen, dining room for ten guests, swimming pool, gorgeous Spanish-style patio and a grand piano; and all the Speciality Suites have Jacuzzis, fireplaces and patios surrounded by pretty gardens.

Food & Drinks

Celebrated chef Wolfgang Puck has created an outstanding menu of modern Californian cuisine with European tweaks. The dining room is a beautiful setting in which to enjoy your gourmet meals, with a grand marble fireplace and retractable glass walls. Outside, the terrace is surrounded by stunning gardens, with private, cosy alcoves that overlook the swan lake. 


For some downtime in the hotel grounds, the La Prairie spa can be found in the gardens, alongside the beauty salon and the gym. The heated pool is surrounded by palm trees and flowers, and is a perfect year-round place to relax with complimentary snacks and drinks.

Activities at Hotel Bel-Air

Wander down to Santa Monica beach in the afternoon or rub shoulders and shopping bags with rich and famous along Rodeo Drive. As the lights turn on across Los Angeles cruise along the famous Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards where the glitterati like to party. With spectacular views across the valley around every corner Bel Air is the perfect base from where explore LA.
