Built in 1928, the Italian Renaissance–style Wilshire wing of this fabled hotel is replete with elegant details: crystal chandeliers, oak paneling, walnut doors, crown moldings, and marble. The contemporary Beverly wing, added in 1971, lacks the Wilshire wing's historic panache, but delivers on style. Rodeo Drive beckons outside, and if you need a lift, you can catch a complimentary ride in the hotel car anywhere within 2 miles of the hotel. Paneled in leather and wood,
with soaring ceilings, THE Blvd is the hotel's posh dining room. At dinner, Hollywood's elite packs the hotel's coolly modern steak house, CUT, featuring steaks and sides by Wolfgang Puck and interiors by architect Richard Meier. Take time to unwind at the hotel's first-rate spa.

My stay was total luxury... even though it was a business trip. The room was spacious and immaculate; very comfortable bed with feather duvet; two spacious bathrooms (one with giant whirlpool tub); lovely L'Occitane bath products; large dressing/vanity room. The room service menu was extensive and available 24-hours (great since I needed breakfast at 3:30am). The pool/sunbathing area was pretty and relaxing, with attendants offering complimentary
lemonade, ice water and fruit. The staff was attentive, friendly and helpful. The location is great -- ideal for shopping on Rodeo Drive.

Have you ever been shopping in a great part of a city and then wished you could just walk through a door and be home. Wish no longer. The location near Saks, Barneys, Neiman-Marcus and Rodeo is 10 point. Checked in late and had staff there promptly offering to turn-down the bed and place a breakfast order. Shower in the morning felt like at home. Lovely bath fixtures and soaps thoughtfully selected. The 'Latte' served from a coffee-pot in the dining
room would make the prez at Starbucks blush. Simply excellent. I sat across from John Mcloughlin (news guy) who seemed to love his cup as well. Wilshire is agent-central for actors so expect to see celebs. The hotel consists of an original wing and a newer wing.. Ask for a room in the original wing to get the full feel of the place. My room was excellent.

This hotel defines chi-chi. The service was extremely attentive to our every need. We stayed in an executive suite and it was very spacious and beautiful. Prices were very very high- but I guess the hotel is not meant for everyone. The concierge made all of our reservations during our stay and got us into restaurants that were booked solid for the night.
