Travel Weekly checked into the plush property of The Peninsula in Beverly Hills recently, and naturally thought we’d share all the goss with you from our stay.
CHECK IN: The Peninsula, Beverly Hills
How’s this for personalisation – our initials were embroidered on the pillows. The rooms are luxurious yet homely and very inviting.
The bed is the focal point of the room with a canopy with matching curtains. Well-appointed and the subtle use of technology in the room ensures that you have all the luxuries you would expect from The Peninsula brand.
Arriving to The Peninsula made for a magical experience. As it was night time, the driveway fairy lights were lit and we were quickly greeted by attentive bellman, and a beautiful foyer centred with a stunning flower display.
The hotel is in a very private part of Beverly Hills amongst lush gardens and built in renaissance style architecture. You quickly realise that you are in for a very special stay. The Peninsula is known for excellence and they deliver on service.
We were quickly greeted by friendly staff when we arrived, our luggage was efficiently whisked away to be sent to our room and the time spent checking in was minimal.
The Peninsula hotel has three restaurants and a bar – all of which are legendary in Beverly Hills. The Belvedere has a beautiful terrace setting as well as charming indoor area.
This is one of the two options for breakfast dining (also offers dinner) and serves excellent a la carte dishes. The Living Room lounge is a comfortable and elegant dining option and famous for their high tea.
The Rooftop Garden is also a favourite with guests and comes complete with a pool so you get a very LA atmosphere dining poolside over the city.
The hotel bar is also an iconic experience. Dark wood walls and dim lighting, the perfect venue for a night cap.
You couldn’t want for more. With pools, cabanas, restaurants, bars, gym and spa you don’t need to leave. What stood out is the car service offered to guests that will drop off and pick up around a 3-4km radius.
In a Rolls-Royce no less. This is the ultimate rock star treatment to take you to Rodeo Drive or the many dining options in Beverly Hills.
Value for Money: 9/10
Beverly Hills accommodation is not cheap but you get what you pay for. The décor and the facilities make it worthwhile.
