Hotel Of The Day: Montage Beverly Hills
What: A Five-Star hotel that feels like a Mediterranean villa tucked in the middle of Beverly Hills, Montage Beverly Hills is the hotel of choice for studio heavy-hitters who want a secluded place to make deals. Hand-painted and gilded stucco ceilings, a rooftop pool with a mosaic-tiled surface, fountained courtyards and guest rooms with private patios give the hotel its glamorous classic Hollywood feel. Impeccable old-school service (complimentary shoe shines) and modern day charm (poolside lime-flavored slushie shots) make a stay here memorable.
Where: You can’t miss the taupe-hued Spanish Colonial-revival building located on Canon Drive in the area locals call the Golden Triangle. From the rooftop pool, you have views of the Hollywood Hills (and the iconic Hollywood sign); the luxe boutiques of Rodeo Drive are a short walk from the hotel.
When: Although the style evokes the 1920s—when the Mediterranean look was popular in the 90210 zip code—the LEED-certified Montage Beverly Hills was actually built in 2008. And while the hotel’s L.A. location means warm weather and sunshine is practically guaranteed, if you need another reason to visit, we suggest hitting up the Sunday all-you-can-eat gourmet brunch at Montage’s Four-Star Scarpetta. For $68, you’ll be able to sample chef Scott Conant’s menu of fresh seafood, farmer’s market-sourced salads, carved meats, omelets, waffles and inventive creations such as foie gras ice cream sandwiches.
Why: The pool scene and an air of exclusivity set Montage Beverly Hills apart from other hotels in the area. Even locals spend time at the rooftop mosaic pool, where you can rent out cabanas equipped with LCD TVs and Wi-Fi, listen to the classical music played underwater, and relax on thick, cushioned lounge chairs. There’s a private underground entrance for star-status guests (A-listers love this place), which means you’re likely to spot a notable yourself—the hotel’s clubby bar Ten Pound is tucked away on the mezzanine level of Scarpetta, and is often laden with Hollywood VIPs taking meetings in the dim-lit, discreet spot.
Hotel Of The Day: Montage Beverly Hills. One of the finest hotels in Beverly Hills and the world, with private condominium residences available for purchase.
