A historic boutique-style hotel catering to executive needs.
Designed by legendary architect Emery Roth, The Hotel Beverly opened in 1927. Its design was so inspirational that Georgia O’Keeffe is said to have painted it from her apartment across the street. Purchased in 1997 by the Denihan Hospitality Group (DHG), the hotel underwent a dramatic restoration, re-opening in the spring of 1999 as The Benjamin.

Insomniacs will be delighted with the pillow menu, featuring twelve varieties. Other amenities include two dual-line speakerphones with data ports, high-speed Internet access and ergonomically designed seating. Bose wave radios are a nice extra.
