Having previously stayed at the Beverley Hills Hotel,we decided to opt for the Bel Air on our last trip to Los Angeles.
The hotel's location is beautiful - high up in the leafy streets of Bel Air. Friendly welcome by the parking attendants (who remembered our names throughout the stay). Very good personal attention from the reception staff - completely avoiding the Reception Desk.
We had a garden suite with private patio. Very private, and beautifully appointed. Very spacious with separate dressing room. Furnishings are eclectic, and very comfortable. We were slightly disappointed that it was not cold enough to warrant lighting the fire. The private patio peaceful and lush, with water feature. We checked in after a long flight from London, and the hotel was the perfect place to unwind. WiFi was easy to use inside and outside.
We spent the first afternoon around the famous oval swimming pool. Service at the pool was slow to start (couldn't find anyone at first!), but very attentive from then on. We absolutely loved the grounds and gardens - a real oasis, and spent about an hour wandering around.
Breakfast was a real event - try and grab one of the tables overlooking the stream. Loads of visitors and guests alike all trying to look and act important - very entertaining.
