“Beverly Hills Hotel you go to be seen. Hotel Bel-Air you go to get away.”
This property is truly a gem. Everything was 5-star across the board. I could not get over the attentiveness (someone noticed we were walking out and called our car from valet so it was ready before we got there), genuine kindness from all the staff - it felt like we were being hosted by friends or family.
The food is incredible - brunch or dinner at WPs restaurant is a must. We ended up having dinner in the lounge/bar area one nice and found it equally as delicious. The bar is sexy and cool with the wood burning fireplace and the live piano music.
Our room was spotless. You sure can turn back time here but expect everything to “feel new”. The housekeeping staff was so friendly and helpful, again so many small, thoughtful touches that really made our girls trip fun!
Definitely book a room with an outdoor patio (we were in room 380). It was lovely to wake up in the mornings, swing open the French doors and have our coffee under the grand oak tree.
We also took our coffees “to go” and walked around the property. The mature landscaping is just breathtaking. You don’t feel like you’re in LA here. Such a special place, cannot wait to return.
We stayed in a large modern room located within the beautifully maintained grounds. The staff were great and very helpful. The hotel is nicely tucked away in Bel Air which makes you feel like your in your own wonderland. The staff constantly went the extra mile and made my birthday stay one to remember. Thank you :)
