The Beverly Hilton is one of my favorite hotels, so my husband booked a staycation for my birthday. Our room was a Junior Suite in the Wilshire Tower, which was lovely.
We're Diamond members, and we've stayed here on several occasions and have always had the best time. We were super surprised when there was a knock on the door and a bottle of complimentary champagne arrived for my birthday! That was really sweet and totally unexpected.
I'm sad to do this, but I have to take a star off for the lack of pool access. We live very close by, and the main reason my husband booked the hotel was because I wanted a pool day. We don't have a pool at home, so we planned to spend the afternoon and the next morning at the pool.
Unfortunately, when we arrived, there was caution tape all around the pool. All we know was there was an incident, no one said exactly what happened or when it will re-open. This is super disappointing, because as locals, the amazing pool is the reason we booked the room. LA is having a super hot summer and I've been dreaming of a pool.
I'm sure we'lll staycation here again some day, but never during pool season, because I don't want to take a gamble on it being open.More
