Understated elegance of service and charm in the ‘City of Angels’ is the last thing I thought I would find, but the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is just that.
The earth-toned exterior with white trimmed balconies stands against the backdrop of the rolling hills of the Santa Monica Mountains, home to many of Hollywood’s elite.
Its airy, spacious rooms seamlessly blend the Southern Californian sun with the comforts of a luxury retreat.
Indulge and soothe your senses with Bulgari in the generous marble bathroom or snuggle into the plush dobby sateen cotton sheets on the Four Seasons signature bed.
For Millenials and tech savvy savants, every possible service can be accessed leading up to and throughout your stay via the hotel’s app. The Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills app is your virtual concierge and if you happen to leave your device at home, each room is equipped with an iPad 2.
Ideally nestled on the leafy and quiet South Doheny Drive, the hotel is a short stroll from the boutiques of North Robertson Boulevard. If The Grove or Beverly Centre are more your taste, you could find yourself in a chauffeur driven Rolls-Royce from the hotel’s complementary car service.
What sets this refined gem apart from other establishments is its unassuming staff and their attention to detail. You could be surprised to find a note and cake in your room in celebration of a special occasion, did I mention ‘hand written’?
Whether you’ve had a long day of business meetings or given your plastic a workout on Rodeo Drive, unwind by the pool as the afternoon sun disappears behind the Hollywood Hills and the shadows of palm trees fade into the sunset.
Close your evening with a carafe fireside with friends, a seat at the Crudo Bar or a cozy dinner for two under the starry night sky at the hotel’s restaurant Culina. The modern Italian flavoured dishes are as vibrant and chic as the destination. Who knows, you may even overhear a deal or two being made — it is after all the entertainment capital of the world.
