Playing host to the annual Golden Globe Awards, this luxury hotel is part of Hollywood history.
At this Hilton managed you can follow in the footsteps of Hollywood royalty and iconic politicians. The style here is sleek and sophisticated yet not over the top and it has a long tradition of providing attentive service – and that’s not surprising with returning guests such as Barack Obama. The hotel’s Aqua Star Pool is the place to be on those hot summer days. Poolside cabanas can be rented allowing you to enjoy a slice of solitude and a cool place to lounge poolside. Following a day of shopping or exploring the famous LA sights it’s well worth indulging yourself with a treatment at the Aqua Star Spa, a tranquil haven amidst this busy metropolis.
The city of Beverly Hills, which can be reached in 15 minutes by foot or a few minutes by car is awash with gourmet restaurants, including restaurants headed up by the likes of Wolfgang Puck, Nobu Matsuhisa and Thomas Keller. The hotel does hold its own when it comes to dining though – the award winning restaurant Circa 55 is a popular spot overlooking the Aqua Pool where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel’s Polynesian-themed bar Trader Vic’s Lounge replaces the Trader Vic’s which opened alongside the hotel in the 1950s, which was once a favourite with the hotel’s a-list guests. Today you can enjoy the nostalgic tiki culture with cocktails such as the famous Mai Tai – a Trader Vic’s original.
The rooms and suites are located within different buildings throughout the hotel – the Wilshire Tower, The Oasis and the Cabanas which are located around the pool. Rooms feature modern amenities such as Bose Wave Music systems and plasma televisions and they offer a calm and comfortable environment. The rooms overlook the pool area and over towards the city with some featuring a small furnished balcony. A range of other rooms and suites are available on request.
