Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts today announces the opening of Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, adding a much-anticipated, soon-to-be-iconic hotel to the intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards – the gateway to Beverly Hills.
Adjacent to The Beverly Hilton, the 12-story hotel is the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts’ first new build on the West Coast and second California property, joining the legendary Waldorf Astoria portfolio of now 26 hotels and resorts. Owned by Alagem Capital Group and clients of Guggenheim Partners, the hotel’s 119 deluxe rooms and 51 suites are part of a world-class, Art Deco-influenced design created by renowned interior design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon, Inc (PYR).
As part of the Waldorf Astoria’s dedication to the ultimate in luxury and True Waldorf Service, a Personal Concierge is assigned to every guest, from pre-arrival until departure, including an individual bespoke in-room check-in service that ensures authentic interactions sure to inspire within each guest a strong yearning to return.
Gensler and PYR are the co-design architects of the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills. To create a cohesive architectural design inside and out, Gensler designed the master plan for the property and co-designed the exterior of the hotel with PYR. Each of the 170 guestrooms, inspired by the contemporary interpretation of Hollywood glamour and the Streamline Moderne style of the 1930s and 40s, offers unrivaled vistas ranging from a bird’s eye view of the Hollywood Hills to the nearby expansive urban canyon of Century City and well beyond. Every room features floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto oversized private balconies, perfect for drinking in the sunset or simply checking out Rodeo Drive, the Beverly Hills shopping mecca just to the east, within easy walking distance of the Waldorf Astoria.
In the public spaces of the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, guests will discover chic touches throughout the hotel, from the triple-height lobby with a contemporary Art Deco design to hand-painted murals, custom crystal chandeliers and elegant Lalique installations. Richly upholstered furniture in soothing tones of celadon, taupe and white is accented by spectacular pieces of art, creating an environment that is both sophisticated and relaxing.
The rooftop pool deck, available only to hotel guests, will be the loftiest and largest rooftop destination of its kind in Beverly Hills. Impeccably landscaped, the rooftop gathering area will include, VIP cabanas, a lounge area with panoramic views as well as a swimming pool.
World-class dining comes to the hotel with three highly anticipated venues created by the legendary French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. With the elegant Jean-Georges Beverly Hills, the chef’s signature restaurant, as well as The Rooftop by JG and Jean-Georges Beverly Hills Bar, a new standard in fine food comes to Beverly Hills. Helmed by a top-notch team of culinary experts hand picked by Vongerichten and including Executive Chef Steve Benjamin of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon fame, the chefs are committed to sourcing foods locally whenever possible and a cornerstone of the menus in all the food and beverage offerings at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills.
Guests can enjoy a private Rolls Royce house car offering complimentary drop-off service within a two-mile radius, or simply stay home in the hotel and lounge in a private cabana at the rooftop pool, enjoy a deluxe treatment at the only La Prairie Spa in Los Angeles, or stop in for a makeover at the Tracey Cunningham Salon, with services by celebrity hair colorist Tracey Cunningham.
