The in-room technology at The Peninsula Beverly Hills was updated during the summer of 2011, so you’ll find only the most up-to-date entertainment systems and control panels in even the most basic guestrooms at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. Your TV is a 40-inch LCD HDTV with DVR capabilities, so you can catch up on all the shows you missed while you were out on the town. There’s a Blu-ray and DVD player, as well as movies-on-demand so you don’t have to worry about keeping the kids occupied if you have to work late. News junkies will appreciate the speakers in the bathroom that let you keep up with the TV in the other room.
The Peninsula’s convenient bedside control panel with phone lets you turn the lights on and off, adjust the temperature, set your alarm clock, call housekeeping, request privacy or ring the valet — all without getting out of bed. Complimentary wired Internet plus Wi-Fi make it easy to stay connected while you’re traveling, and a color printer with private fax lets you send and receive documents at a moment’s notice.
