Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills Review
The Waldorf-Astoria brand has long been synonymous with historic grandeur and timeless luxury, a theme that was infused into their latest Beverly Hills flagship property. Designed by Pierre Yves Rochon, who is known for his work on the George V in Paris and The Savoy in London, the hotel commands a prominent position at the meeting point of Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards. Its impressive circular driveway is lined with lush greenery and boasts a center fountain, forming an oasis off bustling Santa Monica Boulevard. Inside, the grand lobby has cathedral ceilings, sparkling chandeliers, marble floors and a neutral color palette embellished with glossy Bolivian rosewood, large mirrors and gold accents. The overall effect is glamorous old Hollywood, but with a sleek and modern angle.
The 170 rooms and suites are elegant and spacious, decorated in cream, ochre and beige hues, with Italian marble entryways, floor-to-ceiling windows and art that was specially commissioned for the hotel. Each room offers a terrace with spectacular views over the city, and many of the rooms and suites can interconnect to create expansive accommodations. The sophisticated, light-filled Villa suites even boast terraces that can exceed 1,000-square-feet, creating a focus on outdoor living that is quintessentially Californian. The premier suite is the Presidential Penthouse, which sprawls across the top floor of the hotel and offers special amenities such as a fully stocked kitchen, spa sanctuary and gym, home theater and panoramic terrace.
The Waldorf’s dining options are all helmed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, including the main restaurant Jean-Georges Beverly Hills, the Jean Georges bar, and The Rooftop by JG. Jean-Georges features French-inspired farm-to-table cuisine served inside a soaring, light-filled space that evokes a contemporary orangerie with myriad potted plants and comfortable banquette seating. The lively bar sits adjacent to the restaurant and has become a popular spot for the Beverly Hills set who come for the signature cocktails and light bites. The Rooftop by JG offers incredible views of the Hollywood Hills and has a stylish alfresco setting. Globally inspired tapas, like avocado lettuce cups, Madai sashimi and chipotle chicken tacos, are served at tables shaded with large umbrellas and decorated with palm motif pillows.
Crowning the Waldorf Astoria is a gorgeous rooftop pool that offers vast panoramas of the city with loungers and private cabanas (note: it can get quite windy). The hotel also houses a 5,000-square-foot La Prairie Spa with six treatment rooms and a health club. While the location is a 10-15 minute walk from the central shopping and dining area, the hotel offers three Rolls Royce’s to shuttle guests within a three-mile radius.
