Beverly Hills, home to the Rich and Famous. Yes, you can live like them, even if its for a brief vacation. I personally wouldn’t choose to stay in Beverly Hills, when you have other vibrant, cultured and interesting neighborhoods in Los Angeles. However, Beverly Hills is magnificent and if you feel inclined to stay there, I’ll give you a list of the top high-end hotels I find interesting, as well as the more affordable high-end hotels. Also, economical hotels in the area, but econimcal in Beverly Hills isn’t so cheap, so keep that in mind!
- Beverly Hills Hotel – Let’s start with this world renown hotel. Recently celebrated it’s centennial with large events and specials, this iconic hotel was also voted by the Beverly Hills city council to be this city’s first historic landmark. That’s pretty cool! This “pink palace” is luxury at its finest and deserves to be a historic landmark. The guest rooms hold up with elegance and the famed Polo lounge is still the to be “seen” hotspot in town. The pool is beautiful with underwater music and private cabanas surrounding the area. Highly recommend, if you can afford this Beverly Hills gem.
- Montage Beverly Hills -Located within the famous Golden triangle of Beverly Hills, which is where the streets meet to make the most exclusive shopping area in the world. Basically, Montage is in the heart of Beverly Hills. A lively hotel with nightly entertainment, rooftop pool, spa, salon and topnotch restaurants. Complimentary car service is an added Beverly Hills bonus!
- The Peninsula Beverly Hills -This hotel is a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Beverly Hills and that’s just fine. The Peninsula is known to be one of the most romantics hotels around. The hotel’s guest rooms, suites and garden villas are upscale, in a residential area of Beverly Hills which makes this hotel quiet and exclusive. You’ll find the world class Belvedere restaurant inside of The Peninsula, as well.

- Crescent Hotel – Historic boutique hotel, located minutes from all of the Beverly Hills action. Once was home to Hollywood’s old silent movies stars.
