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.
