There is no feeling in the world like checking into The Beverly Hills Hotel!
From the moment you step onto the Red Carpet and take the steps toward
the ‘Pink Palace’ you are aware that this is a Hotel of exceptional standards.
We absolutely LOVE this Hotel! We’ve stayed here now five or six
times and each and every time the Beverly Hills Hotel provides
us with an unforgettable stay. The Customer Service here exceeds
all expectations – and yes, they make you feel like royalty!
The Hotel is set on 12 acres of beautifully manicured, lush tropical gardens.
Our preference is to stay in one of the gorgeous bungalows, in particular,
Bungalow 23C. The rooms are beautifully appointed, complete with marble
bathroom. And the bed …… nothing in this world compares to the comfort
of a sleep in one of their wonderful beds!
As you would also expect, the food here is so great, you never want to leave!
There are several different options for dining at the Hotel. The Fountain Coffee
Room is located below the grand staircase and has 19 restored bar stools around
a curved soda fountain counter. It’s such a delight to sit here and have breakfast
or lunch – and it’s also a great place to grab a coffee to go.
The Cabana Cafe down alongside the pool is the most fabulous place to spend
an afternoon. You can grab breakfast all day here, order a wood oven pizza or,
try the famous McCarthy salad. It’s a very relaxed ambience in this area, one of
my favourite ways to spend a lazy afternoon.
But no trip to The Beverly Hills Hotel would be complete without dining at the
Polo Lounge. Whether indoors or out on the patio, the experience is faultless.
Don’t forget if you’re having dinner to make sure you try the signature Soufflé –
we always share one, however, I’m fairly certain I could single handedly devour
a whole one …. all. by. myself!
Breakfast, Dinner and of course the Sunday Brunch. No matter the time of
day, no matter the meal – it is always perfect! (A large statement I know, but
deserved!) The staff incredible , the ambience incredible, the whole experience
– just incredible!
Sunday Brunch in the Polo Lounge is an event not to be missed! Served from
11:00am to 3:00pm, Brunch is a set priced menu offering the most divine selections
of food and beverages.
This is another meal where you absolutely must leave room
for the Molten Chocolate Cake with Whiskey Toffee sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream!
And don’t forget, the side order of ‘Stars’!~ Every stay we’ve rubbed shoulders with
Hollywood celebrity, and it never gets old! One of the greatest thrills eating at the Polo
Lounge is not knowing who will be seated at the table next to you! I don’t like being a
name dropper but because I know you’re wondering – Paris Hilton, David Beckham,
Prince, Mark Wahlberg, Emma Stone, Gerard Butler, Jack Black, David Foster ….. etc.
And if the spectacular food, exceptional service, stunning historic location and celebrity
sightings aren’t enough – you can also bring your pooch and they will accommodate their every
whim as well!!!
If it’s not already on your Bucket List – it should be! You won’t be disappointed!
I would never want to take anything away from Walt, but the Beverly Hills Hotel
comes a very close second to being The Happiest Place on Earth!!
