“"Best of Beverly Hills"”

The Penisula Beverly Hills has been a favorite for us. My first time back in over 2 years & it's still service at it's best. My trip was short & I was not able to take advantage of the few of things I love at the B.H. Penisula like the spa, a cabana at the rooftop pool my absolute favorite & the "Tea" such a treat. I did enjoy the The Club Bar before & after our night out.

Room Tip: This trip I stayed in a deluxe room. But I do know the Best Rooms are the Villa's they are bea...

My husband and I live in Newport Beach but wanted to have a little LA getaway this past weekend, so we brought our 100 pound Ridgeback and stayed for our first time at the Peninsula for a Saturday night. We completely agree that the Peninsula feels more like a small boutique residential property than a true hotel and we absolutely loved our visit. This was our first overnight stay at a Peninsula, as we usually have stayed at comparable Four Seasons, Ritz Carleton, Mandarin Oriental, and other such properties around the world. We were definitely impressed!

We arrived just before noon, and we departed the next afternoon at about 2 pm, as the hotel had confirmed us for early check in and late check out. We had booked a deluxe room but were upgraded to a garden patio king room, which was perfect for our dog. The room was spacious with beautiful French country style mentioned in other reviews, and the bathroom was also nicely sized. The outdoor patio was small but nice, and it had a gate leading out to a path in the middle of the property that led to a private entry/exit which was superbly convenient for us taking our dog for a walk.

We arrived in the room and found a great sized dog bed big waiting for us, along with a food bowl with a bag of dog food and a water bowl with a bottle of Fiji water waiting, along with an adorable blanket embroidered with our dog's name. Nice touch.

The hotel has a fairly large number of rooms but definitely felt more like a high-end luxury apartment complex in some ways. Definitely more a boutique feel as mentioned above.

Service was outstanding for our entire visit, as one would expect, polished and friendly while not intrusive in the slightest. Everyone, from the restaurant servers to the concierge staff to the valets to the front desk staff, was incredibly nice and happy to help. Despite the fact that we were at a Peninsula, where we might expect a more formal feel, there was definitely that Los Angeles relaxed vibe that we appreciate so much as residents of Southern California.

Some reviews had mentioned the location as not as convenient as other hotels, but we easily walked the 7 or 8 blocks to Rodeo Drive and the shopping center of Beverly Hills. We found the location to be quite perfect, as the hotel is located in a very residential neighborhood, but the commercial/shopping areas were a quick walk away.

We had a quick lunch in their rooftop restaurant, and the food was delicious (and prompt, since we had a limited time before I had to watch a game on TV). We quickly checked out the pool deck and wished we had brought swimsuits, as it looked quite inviting and spacious for a hotel this size in the middle of the city...with great views looking out to downtown and Century City.

We met 8 friends in the hotel bar that Saturday night for a few hours before leaving for a late dinner at Providence. The bar was crowded, but the bar staff went out of their way to help us rearrange tables as our friends arrived, one by one, and couldn't have been more gracious and smooth in making it all work out. What could have been a problematic experience turned out to be a highlight of our weekend, actually. Drinks were pricey, but we expect that at a hotel like this.

We would absolutely return for a full weekend in the future. We can certainly understand the sentiment expressed by so many that this feels like a home away from home more than just a 5 star hotel. Bravo, Peninsula!

Room Tip: If you have a dog, it's worth considering the patio rooms as they give you direct access to the...

Dear Tar Heel Bill 92,

Thank you for selecting The Peninsula Beverly Hills for your recent LA getaway. Your detailed feedback and compliments are truly appreciated by our entire staff. We absolutely love to pamper dogs at our hotel, and I'm so happy that you (and your dog) enjoyed the special in-room pet amenities as well as the convenience of the patio deluxe room.

Thank you also for your kind words about the service, Roof Garden restaurant and Club Bar. I'm delighted that we were able to exceed you and your husband's expectations and provide you with such a wonderful stay.

We definitely hope to welcome you back for a longer stay in the future. If you're looking for more privacy, you (and your dog) might enjoy staying in our detached garden villas next time.

Kindly,
Offer Nissenbaum
Managing Director

Have just returned from a short stay at this Hotel with my Wife. It was our first time here and we were very, very impressed. The service is possibly the best we have received any where in the world. We were welcomed by the staff and nothing was to much trouble. I am aware that in the usa the staff work for tips but we found all the staff to be genuinely helpful and friendly. we made use of the hotel rooftop pool and spa. The rooms we stayed in was a good size and had all that you need on a trip away from home.

This is a delightful property on Santa Monica Boulevard which delivers Peninsula style and service in a hotel which could almost be classed as a boutique hotel. The rooms are decorated in a classical, slightly French style, in pastel colours with elegant soft furnishings. Our room had its own entrance hallway with a ladies' makeup table and mirror, which was sufficiently large to store the vast collection of baggage we had assembled for this particular trip. The bedroom was beautifully appointed and, in a charming touch, the pillows were embroidered with our initials.

Checkin was handled seamlessly in our room by a guest relations staff member who took us from our car directly to the room. While we only stayed for one night, we made fairly full use of the hotel. We had a glass of champagne in the lobby bar – they had excellent champagnes by the glass and, in a nice touch, the pianist asked us if we would like her to play any favourites. We then had dinner with friends in the main restaurant which served good food at surprisingly reasonable prices (even with the 20%). Breakfast the next morning was a la carte and, in my opinion, would work better as a buffet. The quality of the food was good but the servings were unnecessarily large and the cappuccino was capped with a pile of froth that resembled Mont Blanc on steroids and tasted terrible. Those of us who appreciate good coffee should start a worldwide movement to teach people how to make a decent cappuccino or caffe latte!

That said, I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for both business and holiday travellers. It was a joy to stay at.
