The Luxe can boast that it’s the only hotel with a Rodeo Drive address. And with that address comes access to the finest shops and restaurants in the city. Chichi shoppers and international guests flock to this hotel for its upscale location, warm hospitality, and personalized service.
Standard rooms here are surprisingly small but feature nice touches like pop-art on the walls and grand floor to ceiling mirrors. All of the rooms come with Keurig coffeemakers, free Wi-Fi, and in-room tablets.
Petite bathrooms typically have shower/bathtub combos and feature Natura bath products.
A laid-back lobby is decked out with comfy lounge furniture and a sidebar with blue banquettes and TVs. The friendly staff at the check-in desk here pride themselves on knowing each and every guest on a personal level.

The Spa on Rodeo is equipped with a single treatment room but provides an array of services like massages, facials and body wraps.
A small fitness center has basic equipment and there is an outdoor area where gym-rats can get their workout on.
There’s no hotel restaurant, but at the small lobby bar there is always breakfast, lunch and evening snack options. Guests are welcome to grab whatever they like, including beer and wine behind the bar. Room service is supplied by Il Fornaio, an upscale Beverly Hills Italian eatery around the corner.
YOU SHOULD KNOW There is a mandatory $40 club fee that goes with every room. With that, visitors receive all the food and drink benefits at the bar, "free" WiFi, newspapers and access to the fitness center.
The Lobby Bar isn’t the most bustling scene in Beverly Hills, but no one complains about the unlimited beer and wine that come with the hotel’s club fee.
Ask the concierge to get you a reservation at £10, a hidden speakeasy specializing in whiskeys inside the Montage Hotel.
A cool courtyard area is a relaxing space with string lights, fire pits and communal tables. Visitors can bring their complimentary beverages to relax under the Beverly Hills sky.
Don’t forget to check out the Astroturfed roof. The hotel projects movies for their Cinema Under the Stars program from Thursday-Saturday nights.
Beverly Hills is one of the best and safest areas of LA to walk around. The hotel is smack dab in the middle of Rodeo Drive and minutes from the glitziest shopping and eating in the city. Taxis are always easy to flag down as are Uber or Lyft rides. Parking here is also a cinch as the hotel is the only spot on the entire street with valet parking (though it will cost you $36). There’s no metro service in Beverly Hills, so if you want to get to farther reaches of the city, we recommend renting a car.
Trendy tourists can make their way to Mr. Chow (3-minute walk), a famous Chinese spot for a see-and-be-seen crowd. Deli lovers should make their way to Nate ‘n Al Delicatessen (3-minute walk). If you’re lucky, you might see Larry King hunkering down for breakfast.
If you love a vodka martini, you can’t go wrong with Nic’s (6-minute walk). For star-sightings with your sips, head to the Club Bar at the Peninsula Hotel (12-minute walk).
WHY WE LIKE IT
For anyone who loves being in the middle of the fanciest shopping street in the world, this hotel will work perfectly. While there aren’t a lot of amenities--no pool, restaurant, or robust lounge--the hotel does offer guests a bevy of food and drink options and their spa is top notch. Service here is where the hotel truly shines as they make it a point to personalize experiences for all guests.
