Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills will provide an unforgettable, sophisticated Beverly Hills experience when it opens in April 2017. The 170-room hotel will occupy an enviable location at the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards. It will feature a triple-height lobby with a contemporary Art Deco design, the signature Waldorf Astoria clock, hand-painted murals of California landscapes and custom chandeliers. The lush setting, with gardens on every level, will serve as an escape for the soul and senses.
Each of the 119 rooms and 51 suites will offer unrivalled views in every direction from oversized private balconies. The ‘piece de la resistance’ will be the Presidential Suite, extending over 4,000 square feet.
Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills’ genuine, friendly service will include a Personal Concierge assigned to every guest from pre-arrival until departure, ensuring expectations are exceeded. The property will provide guests with unique, personalized experiences including access to private museum tours, exclusive VIP opera and theatre tickets, sports car driving, wine tastings and luxury shopping.
The rooftop pool deck will be the loftiest and largest destination of its kind in Beverly Hills, featuring a pool, cabanas and lounge with 360-degree views. The 5,000-square-foot Spa by La Prairie will offer signature treatments in six intimate rooms. Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, in his West Coast debut, will source menus from local, organic and independent farmers at both the main restaurant and rooftop bar and grill.
“Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills will offer a combination of true luxury and California ease: an urban respite centered in the heart of Beverly Hills,” said Albert Herrera, Virtuoso’s senior vice president of Global Product Partnerships. “The hotel will feature oversized accommodations and amenities, streamlined and welcoming service, unobstructed views with balconies in every room, exclusive dining from acclaimed French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and an indoor/outdoor atmosphere epitomizing the finest Californian lifestyle.”
