All of the rooms at The Peninsula Beverly Hills are comfortable and luxurious, but of course there are certain rooms that stand out. In our opinion, the best rooms to stay in are the villas and patio suites.
Detached from the main building at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, the villas are just what you need if you want extra privacy, with their location in the center of a lush garden full of trees, plants, flowers and small waterfalls. Eight of the villas even feature private entrances and walkways so you can come and go as you please without anyone noticing (perfect for celebrities and VIP guests who want to stay out of the public eye). Some villas offer two to three walls of windows overlooking a residential area of Beverly Hills, and the luxe Peninsula Villa features a private Jacuzzi, fireplace and dining table that seats up to 10. Other villas at The Peninsula offer Jacuzzis and kitchenettes, in case you plan on staying longer or like to cook for yourself. All of the villas were refurbished with new carpeting, bedding and redesigned fireplaces in the fall of 2011, so you’ll feel like you’re staying in brand-new digs.
If you would rather stay in The Peninsula Beverly Hills’ main hotel building, the patio suites are the way to go. They feature French doors that open up to private patios with tables and chairs, so you can sit outside and take in the Beverly Hills sunshine. These rooms are all located on the main floor and look out to the garden and villas. The Royal Patio suite has the largest patio with lounge chairs for sunning, plus a patio table and chairs for four. This suite is perfect for families who have children; the kids can run around and play outside while you get some work done or watch a movie.
There is no “best room” at The Peninsula Beverly Hills. All the rooms are spacious, elegant and comfortable. The room sizes begin at 480 square feet and go all the way up to 2,336 square feet for our Peninsula Villa, a two-story, two-bedroom residence. Seventy percent of our guests are repeat guests, and many of them always want the same room or suite — or one just like it. It’s interesting — our suites always sell out faster than our guest rooms do.
