Top 10 Hotels for the Oscars
This beloved hideaway appeals to celebs, sybarites and lovers of old-fashioned luxury.
Despite its great age, the "Pink Palace" is more alluring than ever, with its coral-pink façade, signature banana-leaf wallpaper and 12 acres of tropical gardens. Managed by the Dorchester Collection, the hotel features 208 luxurious rooms and suites that include 21 one-of-a-kind private bungalows. The guest rooms appeal with their muted floral colors, classic furnishings and original artwork, while suites woo with extras like grand pianos, Jacuzzi bathtubs, kitchens and private patios. The four-bedroom Presidential Bungalow offers a private lap pool and Jacuzzi, and two mega-bungalows, designed by Rottet Studio to reflect a contemporary translation of 1920s SoCal-casual style, measure in at more than 1,800 square feet each and come with private pools.
Executive chef Kaleo Adams presides over the hotel's dining scene, with a team of 60 cooks and eight sous chefs. Among his culinary domains is the legendary Polo Lounge, which remains one of the top L.A. spots for sealing the deal. At the Fountain Coffee Room, a list of regulars, which at one time included Lucille Ball, line up daily for their favorite stool surrounding the famous curving counter, and the chic lobby hangout, Bar Nineteen12, offers signature cocktails and a large terrace for watching the sunset. Many a starlet has posed by the courtyard pool, where guests lounge in cabanas and enjoy "pop-up" treats throughout the day. State-of-the-art exercise equipment, personal television monitors and private trainers highlight the fitness center, while Spa by La Prairie provides an enviable degree of pampering.
