Cons

  • Valet parking for a pricey fee
  • No business center

Bottom Line

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.

Location

Don't be fooled by the name -- this hotel is in West L.A.

Map of Mr. C Beverly Hills

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).

  • 25- to 45-minute drive to Los Angeles International (LAX), depending on traffic
  • 5-minute walk to Rodeo Drive
  • 3-minute drive to Rancho Park Golf Course
  • 9-minute drive to Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, where Marilyn Monroe, Truman Capote, Burt Lancaster, and other stars are buried
  • 10-minute drive to Sunset Strip, the mile-and-a-half stretch of Sunset Boulevard known for its cutting-edge rock clubs and night-time hotspots
  • 12-minute drive to UCLA
  • 17-minute drive to Santa Monica Beach
  • 17-minute drive to the touristy strip of Hollywood Boulevard with the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the celebrity footprints at Grauman's Chinese Theatre
  • 20-minute drive to Getty Center
  • 25-minute drive to Universal Studios Hollywood
