The Beverly Hilton Hotel Review: This landmark has seen its share of facelifts --- a major revamp to the lobby, landscaping and guest rooms in 1999, and an additional $80 million in renovations in 2006, including the 50,000-plus square feet of meeting and public spaces. All of the lovely rooms come with high-speed Internet access, and most boast lavish bathrooms and terraces with city views. From live poolside music on summer weekend evenings to the excitement surrounding the Golden Globes, held in the ballroom every January, the magic of old-school Hollywood can be found here. The iconic Trader Vic's Lounge serves tropical cocktails and Polynesian-themed appetizers in a poolside location next to restaurant CIRCA 55 (California classic cuisine). A state-of-the-art fitness center and spa round out the facilities.
