With a precious courtyard surrounding the pool, the well-maintained, all-suites Beverly Hills Plaza has a look that would be right at home in the south of France. A combination of two former apartment buildings, the property is near a golf course and busy Wilshire Boulevard at the edge of Beverly Hills, but not actually in the city, hence the bit lower price. Rooms are decorated with warm tones of beige, gold, and cream. The outdoor garden's waterfall and koi pond
make for a relaxed atmosphere. You'll find bathrobes, hair dryers, movies, and coffeemakers in the roomy suites; video-game and DVD players can be rented at the front desk.
