Top 10 Hotels for the Oscars
A Little Nip and Tuck for the Grande Dame of Beverly Hills.
Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel) is located at one of the most luxurious intersections in Beverly Hills, within easy striking distance of Rodeo Drive shopping. Unequivocally one of the best hotels in the city, this stately building has been a landmark in Beverly Hills since 1928. Approximately $35 million has gone into renovations at this Four Seasons-managed property, primarily into reconstructing the rooms and suites in the Beverly Wing, which was added to the hotel in 1971, and refurbishing the accommodations in the original Wilshire Wing. Their style is now contemporary, with pretty colors such as amber, greens and blues.
The lobby of this stately hotel is outfitted like a Regency/Directoire-era dream, with a trove of gorgeous antiques, woods, marbles, glass and beautiful flowers. The 395 guest rooms and suites feature expansive marble bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs, silky bed linens, period furniture and double-glazed windows to obviate any street noise. Wolfgang Puck conspired with architect Richard Meier to create CUT, a contemporary steakhouse. CUT Lounge (formerly sidebar) is usually so crowded after work (it attracts agents and clients from the William Morris agency next door), that it's hard to find a seat. In addition, THE Blvd serves excellent American cuisine in an opulent setting.
Adjoining the state-of-the-art fitness center, the spa is the most comprehensive for a hotel in Beverly Hills. It offers all the usual beauty indulgences, as well as Natura Bisse Diamond Collection treatments and Kahina Organic treatments.
An old favorite for lovers of discreet, yet lavish, luxury.
