The flavor is old world Hollywood. The scene is set with an aura of what you used to be. Find a seat near the pool deck and it is as if a Hollywood starlet was lounging right beside you. The Beverly Hilton feels like the era of classy and tasteful one piece swimsuits. Grab your summer hat and your oversized sunglasses and you’ll fit right in.
Staying in Beverly Hills can get expensive and that might be the draw of the Beverly Hilton. These days as room rates have skyrocketed at neighboring hotels that are classified as upscale and luxury the Beverly Hilton has remained somewhat affordable. (All things being relative, of course) The room classes vary and some rooms are bit more polished than others. Make sure to ask for a newly renovated room when making a reservation.
The star of the show at the Beverly Hilton has to be a cabana room. These 36 rooms that surround the Aqua Star Pool are the gem of the property. If you have ever wanted to feel like a celebrity these are the accommodations that will make you feel like you just came off the set at Warner Bros. Your windows and door open up to the pool area so if you enjoy sunshine and action these are perfect for you. These rooms are perfect for those seeking to see and be seen.
We could talk brunch all day long as Circa 55 does a good job of making Sunday the right day for Prosecco and eggs. However, Circa 55 serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily while basking in the glory of the sunshine coming from the pool deck. Expect continental California cuisine that includes a farm to table element and an approach to fresh that is kind to your attempt to watch the calories.
The Lobby Lounge does happy hour and small bites to get you through the evening as well as early morning snacks to help you start the day. The light fare items are perfect for the casual meal that also needs a delectable cocktail to go along with it.
From the Beverly Hilton nearby attraction such as Eataly, Rodeo Drive and the Century Plaza are minutes away via rideshare or taxicab. Shopping, dining, and sightseeing are not walking distance, but less than 10 minutes by car.
On any given day Hollywood happens at the Beverly Hilton so you might be brushing past an A-lister or see celebrities being interviewed by the pool. The property pops up in film and television and the main ballroom is home to major award ceremonies. With that said you can expect fluctuating prices depending on the season and the schedule of events.
