Montage Beverly Hills

Spanish Colonial elegance in Tinseltown
Located smack-dab in the middle of Beverly Hills' Golden Triangle, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Montage Beverly Hills is the pinnacle of decadence that has come to represent the neighborhood. The entrance of the property is on Canon Drive, while the backside backs up to Beverly Canon Gardens, a beautiful courtyard that makes for a good place to sit with a book. Once inside, guests will see that hotel rooms are spacious given its prestigious location, and include luxurious bathrooms and comfortable beds. After settling in, check out one of the hotel's best experiences, which includes having breakfast at The Rooftop Grill while savoring views of the Hollywood Hills and indulging in cold-pressed juices such as The Green Drink (spinach, celery, kale, ginger, cucumber-lemon juice and green apple). While staying at the property, be sure to take advantage of Spa Montage's treatments, gym, mineral pool, steam, sauna and relaxation lounges.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The view on the ninth floor is breathtaking — you can see all the way out to the Hollywood Hills and the legendary Hollywood sign — and it’s a serene spot for relaxation. Cabanas surround the blue-mosaic-tiled pool (dive in to hear music playing underwater) with plenty of chairs and towels to go around and if you’re hungry grab a bite at the adjacent Conservatory Grill, which serves tasty cocktails, sandwiches and salads.
  • Scarpetta’s classic Italian food is a perennial favorite, as is this Four-Star restaurant. Celebrity chef Scott Conant crafts delicious pastas and seafood, plus a to-die-for Sunday brunch and sit outside if you can — Scarpetta overlooks Beverly Canon Gardens.
  • You don’t even have to leave the Beverly Hills hotel to wind down with a fine wine or cocktails. The super-intimate Ten Pound pours aged Macallan scotch, including a break-the-bank $64,000 shot and Parq Bar, situated by the gardens, hums with live entertainment from local musicians every night.
  • If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to live in the golden age of Hollywood, the Five-Star hotel will bring you there. Its décor takes inspiration from the Spanish colonial style that was popular in Beverly Hills during the 1920s and ’30s.
  • When you stay at Montage Beverly Hills, you’re near the middle of Beverly Hills, just a few blocks from shopping on Rodeo Drive and fine dining. Plus, you’re a short drive from the trendy restaurants in West Hollywood.
Things to Know
  • The best seat in the house at Scarpetta is the Chef's Counter, a handful of seats at the far end of the open-air kitchen. Take a seat here and you'll receive attentive service and a chef's tasting menu you won't soon forget.
  • The Lobby Lounge is where you can  not only hear live music nightly and enjoy an exclusive sushi menu in this spacious, high-ceiling den, but you can also try the amazing delicacies from pastry chef Richard Ruskell, who won the Food Network's Last Cake Standing to win the title of "Best Cake Artist in America." What most people don’t know is that you can also order his cakes for private celebrations or if you simply want a delicious cake – just let the staff know that you’d like to purchase one.
  • Treat yourself to a haircut at the Kim Vo Salon near the hotel’s spa. Most likely, you'll see Kim Vo himself. E! News watchers will recognize him from his many appearances on the show (the celebrity hairstylist is often in his flagship salon).
  • One look at the top-notch Montage’s gym facilities and you’ll want to keep up with your physical regimen (and gym-goers have full access to the Spa Montage facilities). A bunch of great fitness classes are offered for only $25 a pop.
  • Montage Beverly Hills offers a children's program called Paintbox where the hotel arranges fun events for the little ones while you enjoy a spa day or some shopping. You can choose whether your child attends a full day or half day of events.
The Rooms
  • Guest rooms at Montage Beverly Hills meld old-school, glamorous décor with modern amenities and gorgeous views. The design of the Five-Star hotel hearkens back to the Spanish colonial revival style that was popular in 1920s and 1930s, and this elegant look extends into your guestroom, with oversized paintings and spacious ivory marble bathrooms.
  • An executive desk, padded armchairs and an L-shaped chaise lounge fill the space, but it doesn't feel cramped (even if you have standard accommodations). The warm wood finish in the room balances well with the calming cream tones of the walls and the abundant L.A. sunshine streaming through your window.
  • The crisp white linens and the gold-trimmed duvet soften the dark wood headboard and bench at the foot of the bed. Across the way, a large entertainment system stands along the wall with a built-in TV, and wood-frame cabinet doors with diamond-patterned gold panels open to reveal a Bose surround-sound stereo.
  • If you like lounging in bed in the morning, laze between the 500-thread-count Fili D'oro sheets and use the bedside panel to control the white curtains, lights and the 42-inch television. And almost all the guest rooms in the Beverly Hills hotel come with a terrace (the best rooms have furnished balconies or patios), where you can admire the courtyard and get some more of that California sun.
  • When you step into your room's elegant bathroom at Montage Beverly Hills, the gorgeous beige and white mosaic wall tiling may look familiar. It should – the same design greets you on the lobby floor upon entering the Five-Star hotel.
Nearby Attractions
  • Montage Beverly Hills is in the Golden Triangle, home to most of the upscale shops for which the city is known. Rodeo Drive sits just a few blocks away if you want to pop your head into the requisite Jimmy Choo, Prada and La Perla, while the bigger stores — Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys — line nearby Wilshire Boulevard.
  • Hightail it to Hollywood and be a tourist for a day. Check out the stars on the Walk of Fame, the handprints at the legendary Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and the red carpet at the Kodak Theatre (home to the Academy Awards).
  • Sit and read at Beverly Canon Gardens. Just walk out the doors on the side of the Beverly Hills hotel and you’ll enter a lush garden with colonnaded walkways, trickling fountains and tons of quiet nooks for enjoying a good book.
  • Eat at Bouchon. This bistro, bakery and bar from chef Thomas Keller is just on the other side of the gardens, and celebs like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have dined there.
  • You could spend the whole day dipping into the galleries along Rodeo and the surrounding streets. Speaking of which, there’s nothing better than strolling the boulevards and enjoying the beauty around the Five-Star hotel.
