Hotel Zoom-In: The Beverly Hills Hotel

The Beverly Hills Hotel (@bevhillshotel) is a landmark and Los Angeles treasure. Upon entrance, the hotel’s retro sign greets you, surrounded by shrubbery and storied palm trees. Handing your keys to the valet, walking a dazzling red carpet into the grand lobby, you feel like a star. Originally built in 1912, The Beverly Hills Hotel has welcomed Hollywood’s elite (think Marilyn Monroe & Elizabeth Taylor), world royalty, and international leaders, all who come to the space to experience its timeless glamour.

The hotel — which often goes by the nickname “Pink Palace” — has 210 guestrooms, including 23 California-style bungalows that exude “the art of vacation.” Celebrities — whether it be parties of two, four, or more — have frequented the dazzling Polo Lounge throughout the years, a renovated-but-still-classic space with forest-green walls, leather furnishings, latticed mirrors, and old-time photos of polo players. Eating at the restaurant’s patio is an excellent option too, especially with the legendary Southern California sunshine. Next door, the Fountain Coffee Room and its curved 1950s diner-style counter has been serving travelers since its inception in 1940 — it’s the perfect place to enjoy a slice of pie.

The palm tree-fringed pool with underwater speakers — often playing old-time, classic Hollywood soundtracks — is the perfect place to take a dip on a warm day. Relatively new, the hotel collaborated with legendary artist, Gray Malin (@graymalin), which saw him create “The Gray Malin Cabana at Beverly Hills Hotel” — a pool cabana with a green and pink color scheme, iconic banana leaf wallpaper and Serena & Lily furniture. Separate from the pool, he recently debuted “Gray Malin’s Dogs at The Beverly Hills Hotel” — a photography series featuring adorable canines hanging out in different iconic places throughout the property (see picture one & two).
