We booked 2 rooms here for the last 2 nights of our holiday. We arrived late and were a bit surprised that the desk seemed to have difficulty in locating our double and twin rooms as they were booked 6 months in advance. However we appeared to have some sort of upgrade and very very pleased with our rooms which were on the 9th floor and had a great balcony. The rooms were comfortable and kitted out well. The front desk were happy to give out bottled water which was nice as they told us it would be charge if taken from the minibar. We ate in the informal restaurant on our first eveniing as everywhere else in the area looked closed or near to closing. The meal was nice, not cheap but OK for a hotel at this price level. Service was excellent. There was supposed to be coffee and pastries available in the lobby in the morning but we only managed to find the drinks on the second morning and didn't find anything else. It's a very glamorous hotel in in a very expensive area and it is great just watching what is going on around you. We saw an actor is front of the hotel and then had to rack our brains to identify him. The bar had a happy hour with reasonably priced wine, beer and cocktails although it got very loud later on. The clientele in the bar was quite a strange mix of shady looking men and much younger women. The concierges were great at suggesting activities and restaurants and managed to get us a table at Spago's for a great last night dinner.
The pool is relatively small but hardly anyone was swimming. It was heated which meant it wasn't as refreshing as we'd expect in such a warm climate. The sunbeds are nice but quite close together especially as quite a few people were having loud business conversations. The cabanas looked great but we didn't have time to use one.
The location is right in the middle of Beverly Hills right opposite Rodeo Drive. Be warned, there are no normal shops here to pick up anything useful - no convenience stores for last minute items. It's all high end luxury shopping. It was great for a couple of days to see into a different world but it's not a relaxing atmosphere.
The staff are obviously used to seeing it all and treating everyone with calm efficiency although it felt quite impersonal because it was so busy. There were a couple of photo shoots taking place when we were there which added to th buzz.. When we left we had to walk past the Bentley and Maserati parked outside, and it was clear that someone important was about to arrive as the staff were waiting on the steps. It was a great experience.
