A vision of stately luxury, this Mediterranean-inspired landmark hotel has everything going for it: an iconic restaurant, the largest spa in the neighborhood, a glamorous rooftop pool, and seriously prime Beverly Hills placement overlooking Beverly Canon Gardens. The classically decorated rooms and suites are outfitted with all the latest requisite amenities—running the gamut from Antica Farmacista toiletries to bedside control panels for nearly everything—and many have furnished private balconies looking out on the neighboring gardens. But, as beautiful and glamorous as it all is, the Montage Beverly Hills shines most in its perks, such as free consultations with in-house celebrity stylist Joe Katz, free weekly fitness classes, and one of the most comprehensive kids’ club programs in town. As it turns out, movie stars aren’t the only ones in Beverly Hills to get treated this well.

The Montage Beverly Hills is located right in the heart of Beverly Hills' Golden Triangle, next to the lush Beverly Canon Gardens, which means that all of the neighborhood’s high-end boutiques and star-studded restaurants are within walking distance. Iconic restaurants such as Spago and Bouchon are both just around the corner. See and be seen over brunch at the Ivy, try the best sushi in the city at Sugarfish, and grab coffee at nearby Coupa Café. A few blocks south, Rodeo Drive is lined with boutiques from all the most glamorous international luxury brands.
