Fodor's Review

This Spanish Mission-style icon has been a discreet hillside retreat for celebrities and society types since 1946; and now courtesy of star designers Alexandra Champalimaud and David Rockwell, the rooms and suites, many of which feature fireplaces and private patios, are decidedly more modern. Guests appreciate Bang & Olfusen TVs and iPads for ordering room service (and controlling everything else in the room). While still paying homage to Old Hollywood glamour, the

country-club-like hotel also has Asian and French art deco influences, floor-to-ceiling windows, natural wood ceilings, and limestone floors. The posh La Prairie spa lures high society types, as do the beloved oval-shape pool and famous Swan Lake. The hotel's Wolfgang Puck restaurant serves California cuisine with Mediterranean and French touches, and offers ample alfresco dining under bougainvillea-covered trellises. The bar retains its original clublike feel, with large celebrity photographs lending a youthful and fresh touch.
