The Beverly Hilton offers comfortable, spacious rooms with all the amenities you’ll need. When you enter the warm standard room at The Beverly Hilton, you step on tan leaf-patterned carpeting and see texturized tan-yellow wallpaper and white crown molding lining the bedroom. The bed has an upholstered beige headboard that’s flanked by two dark wood side tables. Each has a beaded lamp on top and a mirror behind it. On one table is a Bose Wave Music System radio/CD player that comes with a remote control; on the other is a cordless phone. At the foot of the bed is a chocolate-brown chaise lounge, whose seat comes up to reveal some extra pillows. Across from the chaise lounge is a dark brown credenza — we noticed some scuff marks on it and on some of the other slightly worn wood furniture — that holds a tray of for-pay extras like Pringles chips and some chocolates from Le Chateau (the chocolate and wine shop near the lobby); and in case you forgot yours at home, the tray also holds a bottle of skincare-guru-to-the-stars Sonya Dakar’s facial cleanser and sunscreen. Above the credenza is a 42-inch HDTV flat-screen silver LG TV. In the corner of the room is an oval-shaped work desk that swivels and a tan ergonomic chair. There’s a desk lamp with a moveable arm, a phone and a silver ice bucket on top of the desk, as well as a handy control panel for easy plug-ins and Internet hookup. Behind the desk, cream, orange and olive striped drapes, as well as a layer of sheer curtains, frame a set of sliding doors that lead out to the terrace. There, a rattan mat, two white mesh chairs and a small round glass-topped table are available so you can look out over the hotel’s circular drive (look past the unsightly roof of a nearby building for those in the Wilshire Tower) and out at the city.
A frosted glass panel on the wall separates the bathroom and bedroom. (You can’t see everything, but you can spy silhouettes.) A large mirrored sliding door leads into the spacious bathroom, which is covered in tan marble tile with a black marble-top sink. Bathrooms in the in Wilshire Tower and Cabana rooms have 13-inch silver Sony flat-screen TV built into the mirror. A frosted glass door hides the toilet, while another opens up to a tan-tiled Kohler rainhead shower with Peter Thomas Roth bath products.
