Hotels renovate. This hotel renovates so that it looks almost exactly the same as it did 30 years ago. And that’s why generations of guests call this classic hotel home when in the land of La La. Yes, some of those guests move in for the entire summer, bringing their own furniture and enough staff to take up entire floors. But if you’re staying here, how you like it is how you’re going to have it.
There are a lot of solid places to stay in LA, but yet nothing is quite the Peninsula Beverly Hills. It’s not about being the coolest or trendiest hotel at the Peninsula; it’s about the best service, the most elegant rooms and the most polished experience in town. There is something special about getting absorbed in the serenity of the lounge during afternoon tea, while occasionally looking up to take in the people watching. In the frenzy that can be a visit to LA, the Peninsula is our spot to unplug from all of it, while still being right in the mix.
Room, Sweet Room
While the rooms may look the same, they have also freshened them enough to welcome them to the 2020s, especially with the technology. There’s something to be said about not having to fiddle with confusing light switches. Here it’s all controlled by iPad. We always find ourselves hanging out in the room a little bit longer too, and not just to drop our bags. This is an ideal spot if you’re planning to stay a while and want to feel like you’re at home.
