SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills Review
Imagine dropping into Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole: this is the colorful, textured, and tchotke-filled lobby of the SLS from design maestro Philippe Starck. Hotel guests enter into a fashionable living room that encourages socializing with its fireplaces, hidden nooks, and a communal table for cocktails and dining. Visual stimulation ranges from the succulents garden in oversize pots and white leather couches out front to the elevators backed with oversize portraits. Rooms have crisp, fine linens, egg-shaped soaking tubs, and high-tech sound and video systems. Owned by L.A. nightlife pro Sam Nazarian, there's atmosphere, photo-ready spots (the rooftop pool is a scene), and dining by celebrated Spanish chef José Andrés. Forward-thinking amenities abound: gym equipment is stellar, each room has a fully stocked bar, and the Ciel spa feels like a dreamy lounge.
L.A.'s hotel scene got a lot hipper when the Philippe Starck–designed SLS opened. The lobby decor manages to successfully mix cozy mountain lodge with palatial dining room; dark-wood bookcases with scattered knick-knacks and fireplace logs oppose chandeliers hanging above a room-long white-marble table. See and be seen at the decadent rooftop pool and the ultra-trendy restaurant, the Bazaar.
