My young daughter and I had booked a room at The Bel-Air and were looking forward to our stay. Unfortunately, I lost my wallet at the airport. Amex Global Assist called The Hotel Bel-Air on my behalf and asked if they could provide credit for my stay. The Hotel Bel-Air was not willing to work with Amex and said that...

It is probably the best hotel in the area, with good service, good restaurants, good room service, very comfortable bedding (linens, pillows) and towels. Garden and its habitats are very cute. It might be a bit noisy and if you come early, you might not get your room (but this is one time problem).

We just spent the last 5 nights at The Hotel Bel Air. There is absolutely nothing that compares to this hotel anywhere The room was insane. Beautiful, clean and just perfect. The service, the food and the grounds were perfect. This hotel spoils you completely. We will be returning again for sure.

I've stayed here several times over the years. It's a lovely hotel with rooms strewn along a garden path that meanders along the tree-lined canyon. They even have real swans swimming in a stream-fed pond. Not a lot of sprawl here but it's still an urban hotel, despite the scenic natural setting. You're only a short drive away from Beverly...

What an amazing place to stay. It's a quiet little retreat great for time alone or for a romantic couples get away. It's timelessly beautiful and really hard to compare to most any other property I have seen.

Each has been during a different season, a different temperature, and different levels of occupancy, and during one visit it rained the entire time. During...
