Opulence in Beverly Hills

By Amanda Christensen

Hidden among 80-year-old palm and banana trees is The Beverly Hills Hotel, a timeless and iconic property on the streetscape of the namesake city. Known for hosting Hollywood royalty, the property is a favored Los Angeles County hideaway—and, originally built by Margaret Anderson in 1912, the hotel celebrated its 110th birthday last year.

“The Beverly Hills Hotel has really come to signify much more than a luxury five-star hotel—it is more an institution that has become part of the fabric of the community,” says Steven Boggs, director of guest relations for the hotel. “The city was actually named after The Beverly Hills Hotel in 1914, two years after we opened our doors.”

The 210-room hotel offers a warm and secluded atmosphere with over 25,000 square feet of meeting and event space: The Crystal Ballroom boasts 7,577 square feet for up to 850 guests theater-style, and the intimate Polo Private Salon has 228 square feet for up to 80 guests theater-style. 

“[With] history, celebrity, and excitement, your guests feel like movie stars as they glide into the lobby,” Boggs says.
