Peninsula Beverly HillsA grand hotel in the Old World tradition, the Peninsula Beverly Hills oozes luxury and decadence from its gilded chandeliers and wood-paneled walls. From the moment a white-gloved valet opens the oversized front doors, the entire experience unfolds like an ode to the kind of living only royalty should have; except that, at the Peninsula, every guest is treated like royalty. First, there’s elegant marble bathrooms—larger than some apartments—outfitted with both soaking tub and shower, and the softest bathrobes imaginable. Then, it’s up to the rooftop for a leisurely alfresco breakfast alongside wheeling and dealing studio types before moving over to a poolside cabana for a few hours of basking and celebrity-spotting. Don’t forget to squeeze in time for a spa treatment—The Peninsula Spa being the beauty and relaxation regimen of more than a few big names. Afternoon tea in the Living Room can’t be missed, thanks both to the decadent spread of scones and finger sandwiches, and the live harp music wafting through the air.
Even though the hotel is in the heart of Beverly Hills, with trendy shops and restaurants just blocks away, the hotel’s free Rolls Royce service can drop guests anywhere they need to go in the neighborhood.
