Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Beverly Hills Hotel's location on Sunset Boulevard means you’ll have some iconic Hollywood sights right on your doorstep, with Rodeo Drive, Beverly Gardens Park and Santa Monica Boulevard all within walking distance.

Rooms at Beverly Hills Hotel

The hotel’s rooms are a picture of vintage Hollywood glamour, with luxurious, traditional furnishings and a mid-century feel in the retro light fittings and wall art. Polished wooden floors are covered with luxuriant floral rugs, and living rooms are warmed by marble fireplaces. They overlook the hotel’s palm-dotted gardens - some open onto their own little patio gardens.

For the most iconic stay of all, choose one of the hotel’s famous bungalows, which offer extra seclusion and are even more lavishly decorated, with beautiful pink marble bathrooms.

Food & Drink

The Polo Lounge has such a reputation as a meeting place for the luminaries of Tinseltown that it earned the nickname ‘Hollywood’s commissary’. Instantly recognisable by its green-and-white striped colour scheme, it showcases an iconic interior as well as an outdoor patio bursting with palm trees and bougainvillea. The menu offers gourmet Italian-influenced American cuisine, and this restaurant was the birthplace of the McCarthy Salad.

At the Fountain Coffee Room, you’ll find 1950s-style American diner cuisine, while hearty casual cuisine is served by the pool at the Cabana Café. Bar Nineteen12 is named for the year of the hotel’s opening and has an appropriately vintage feel, with its huge marble bar and brown leather furnishings.


In addition to the pool, flanked by striped sun loungers, the hotel’s luxurious spa is the setting for a wide range of wellness and beauty treatments, from bamboo exfoliant massages to vitamin C pedicures. If you’re feeling a little more energetic, enjoy a workout in the modern gym, or unwind with a yoga or meditation session.

Activities at Beverly Hills Hotel

Beverly Hills is such a magnet for the rich and famous that even its residential streets are a tourist attraction, with tours centred around its multi-million-dollar mansions. Also nearby is Beverly Gardens Park, whose sculptures and Cactus Garden make the perfect backdrop for a walk or run.

Further afield, don’t miss the chance to explore the iconic sights of Los Angeles, such as the Hollywood sign, the Chinese Theater and Venice Beach, to name just a few.
