In honor of the 2014 Beverly Hills Centennial, the city’s Conference and Visitors Bureau has launched a “suite” hospitality promotion, Suite 100, with five of the city’s most luxurious hotels. Designed to showcase the city’s glamorous past, The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows, Montage Beverly Hills, The Beverly Hilton, L’Ermitage Beverly Hills and The Peninsula Beverly Hills designed custom suites for stays between now and the end of 2014. Each hotel spent well over $50,000 on their suites to create a special custom look, and prices for these suites start at $1,914, a nod to the year Beverly Hills was founded.
Here’s a look at what you can expect:
Montage Beverly Hills
Interior designer Nina Petronzio evoked the mysterious film noir era of the 1940s by crafting bespoke pieces from her own collection with a mix of Lalique Crystal and museum quality collectibles. Suite amenities include literature, music and custom menus inspired by the 1940s.
The best feature? Guets who push the “Press for Champagne” button will be greeted promptly by a bellman with bubbly in hand, the first glass complimentary. The Film Noir Suite is priced at $1,914 per night.
The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows
Tihany Design drew inspiration from the glamorous lifestyle of Marilyn Monroe, a frequent hotel guest, and the understated-elegance of architect Paul Williams, who designed the hotel’s Polo Lounge, signage and iconic pink-and-green color scheme.
Expect black lacquer finishes, tropical prints, shag carpets and a bar, plus original artifacts from Marilyn Monroe’s estate and a library of Marilyn Monroe videos and books. The suite itself starts at $3,795 per night, but for an additional $1,914, the hotel is offering a “Norma Jean Experience,” which includes Marilyn themed gifts; a bottle of Chanel No. 5; airport transfers in a vintage car; a bottle of Dom Perignon; Marilyn’s Menu for Two featuring her favorite room-service dishes; two diamond Perfection body treatments in the hotel’s La Prairie Spa; and breakfast for two.
The Beverly Hilton:
This suite highlights the swinging 60s, an era where The Beverly Hilton hotel reigned supreme. Tom Ford Design was inspired by actresses like Audrey Hepburn and Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds;” as well The Beatles. Expect bold colors, a mix of antique and modern, as well as a variety of fun touches, including a working television from the 1960s on loan from the GRAMMY Museum, and as objects pulled from the hotel’s archives, including an actual 1960s room service menu for dining enjoyments and a collection of vintage Barbie® dolls.
L’Ermitage Beverly Hills:
Inspired by the allure of the 70s, interior designer Ken Fulk brings guests of L’Ermitage Beverly Hills a space re-imagined as legendary fashion icon Halston’s ultimate pied-a-terre. Expect high-gloss lacquer, mirror finishes and select vintage-inspired Halston Heritage pieces on an elevated catwalk balance. Our favorite feature? A powder room is papered in Interview Magazine covers and an interactive iPad photo booth. Rates start at $1,914.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills: “The Birth of Modern Luxury”
Here, find yourself in the present, where design firm Forchielli Glynn worked to create a style that makes guest feel like they are stepping into a modern day awards show. The living room walls are clad in photographic murals of a red carpet Hollywood gala event.
Our favorite part? This Suite 100 package includes a private pool cabana for the day, with lunch for two; a Scrub & Spray Tan treatment for two at The Peninsula Spa; transportation within Beverly Hills and Century City in a luxury vehicle and more. If you really want to splurge, spend an additional $1,914, to enjoy a “Red Carpet Glamour” experience with a Hollywood style photo shoot on The Peninsula’s red carpet.
