Vintage Hollywood symbol still shimmers

165 Rooms / 43 Suites

One of L.A.’s most enduring icons is this stately, pale-pink Five-Star hotel on Sunset Boulevard. The Beverly Hills Hotel has been attracting guests (famous and not) since 1912, and its star power is by no means fading. While celebrities love the hotel for its luscious private bungalows (perfect for canoodling and doing whatever else stars do), the rest of us love the tropical gardens (gorgeous) and the retro-style pool (so movie-star chic). Guestrooms, which are bathed in soft hues, are kitted out in unique English furniture and marble baths. Once you’ve fully reveled in your good fortune (and the impeccable service and extra-comfy beds), make your way downstairs to the French-colonial-inspired outdoor deck. Or take in the scene at the famous Polo Lounge, which still buzzes with handshakes and business deals, or the new Bar Nineteen12, which has turned into a place to party with the beautiful and affluent.
