Don't be fooled by the name -- this hotel is in West L.A.
Though the name claims Beverly Hills as its neighborhood, Mr. C is really located in West L.A., the edgier section of tourist-friendly Hollywood.
The location borders Beverly Hills (the hotel is only a few minutes from Rodeo Drive), the enclave of wealthy living and luxury shopping in the middle of L.A.'s westside. Though West L.A. is not known for its tourist attractions, the world-class Getty Center art museum is in West L.A., as is the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).
Though the name claims Beverly Hills, the 138-room Mr. C (of the Cipriani brand) is really located in West L.A. In fairness, though, it is incredibly close to Beverly Hills and has the feel of some Beverly Hills hotels -- with large chandeliers, black-and-white Hollywood photographs, and a trendy pool scene. For those with ultra-discerning taste, the decor may better indicate what "posh" was a few years ago, but the rooms are sexy and sleek, and each has its own balcony. Those wishing for a true Beverly Hills hotel may consider staying at the Beverly Wilshire or the Thompson.
