Beverly Hills
Maison 140

Built in 1939 and once an apartment building owned by Lillian Gish, this stylish property is situated on a quiet street just off busy Wilshire Boulevard. Within this beautiful hidden gem, France meets the Far East in striking spaces designed by Kelly Wearstler. The 44 Mandarin and Parisian Rooms offer a touch of whimsy, with Chinoiserie screens, hand-tufted European carpets, gilded armchairs and other unique decorative touches. Although the facilities are few, privacy and exclusivity are abundant. Guests here can live like well-heeled locals, as they stroll to Rodeo Drive or sip on a signature Lady Godiva cocktail at the hotel's seductive Bar Noir.
