Take a look at the best party hotels in Beverly Hills/Bel Air.
Less stuffy than the Beverly Hills Hotel, more glam than the Beverly Hilton, this iconic Beverly Hills hotel is a top luxury pick for business or leisure, families or romance. With beautiful guest rooms, a Wolfgang Puck restaurant, and a great spa, pool and fitness center, plus doting Four Seasons service, it's hard to find fault.
The Philippe Starck-designed SLS, opened in 2008, may dazzle -- and possibly overwhelm -- the senses with capital-D design. The rooms are sleek, luxurious, and spacious; its gym is enormous, and restaurants by Spanish chef José Andrés are praiseworthy. But the high-design elements sometimes get in the way of comfort and practicality -- neither of its two pools, for example, is deep enough for swimming.
The 107-room four-pearl SIXTY Beverly Hills has an intimate feeling and touches of Hollywood glamour. Located just five blocks from Rodeo Drive, the SIXTY is well-positioned for tourists and business travelers, with plenty to see and do within walking distance. The hotel has a chic rooftop pool and lounge with panoramic Los Angeles views, and a clubby restaurant and bar downstairs. The compact spa has a sauna and offers massages. Upscale but not uptight, the SIXTY allows children, but isn't overly kid-friendly. Guest rooms are small but elegant, with sophisticated marble bathrooms and minibars stocked with Dean & DeLuca snacks. For similar features and prices, plus extras such as Mercedes Benz shuttle service and flexible check-out, guests should also consider Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills.
