Fodor's Expert Review Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills

9850 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, California, 90210, USA

The belle of Beverly Hills, this Pierre-Yves Rochon–designed five-star property impresses with a top-notch spa, rooftop pool with VIP cabanas, a restaurant program created by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and state-of-the-art amenities. From the moment they enter the opulent lobby, a tribute to the golden age of Hollywood with white stone and bronze, guests are treated with the highest regard.

Personal concierges, three restaurants and a lobby bar, and a La Prairie–run spa worth splurging on allow for ultimate relaxation.
