A Little Nip
and Tuck for the Grande Dame of Beverly Hills
ritziest corner in Beverly Hills
Beverly Wilshire, 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.
395 guestrooms and suites feature gigantic marble bathrooms
with deep-soaking tubs, silky bed linens, period furniture
and double-glazed windows to obviate any street noise.
A new Spa and Pool Bar boasts cabanas for lazing.
Puck has conspired with architect Richard Meier to transform
the former Dining Room into CUT,
a contemporary steakhouse and adjoining sexy lounge.
The latter, dubbed Sidebar, is usually so crowded after
work (it attracts agents and clients from the William
Morris Agency next door), it's hard to find a seat.
In addition, The
Blvd serves excellent American cuisine by chef Brian Moyers in a modern, Art Deco-influenced setting.
Adjoining the Fitness Center, the new 8,000-square-foot
spa is the most comprehensive for a hotel in Beverly
Hills, offering pampering packages such as the Day of
Rejuvenation and the Jet Lag Recovery Treatment and
amenities like Ice Fountains and Aromatherapy Crystal
