U.S. News Review

Some say the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills is cool, both in good and bad ways. First the good: This standout property of hotelier Sam Nazarian is decked out in sleek furniture and just enough detailing to carve out a distinct personality without overwhelming visitors. For example, you'll find the acronym "SLS" branded on much of the hotel paraphernalia, each time offering a different meaning (coffee cups urge you to "sip liquids slowly"). Plus, the staff is often described as attentive, friendly and helpful with any questions or issues that arise. And now the not-so-good: Some guests say that the hotel's 'round the clock party atmosphere disrupts sleep. But to end on a high point: This hotel on South La Cienega Boulevard does have what's becoming the norm in L.A. a modish rooftop pool.

Critic Reviews

Oyster.com

“The rooms are sleek, luxurious, and spacious; its gym is enormous, and restaurants by Spanish chef Jose Andres are praiseworthy. But the high-design elements sometimes get in the way of comfort and practicality -- neither of its two pools, for example, is deep enough for swimming.”

Fodor's

“Imagine dropping into Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole: this is the sleek, textured, and tchotke-filled lobby of the SLS from design maestro Philippe Starck.”

Forbes

“If you're visiting Los Angeles for an unforgettable luxury experience, you may never need to leave the hotel, which offers distinct dining experiences overseen by Andrés (including room service), indulgent treatments at Ciel Spa, creative cocktails like the liquid nitrogen caipirinha at Bar Centro and a thriving pool scene atop the Altitude Pool deck.”

Travel + Leisure

“Spanish chef José Andrés, known for his cutting-edge approach at Washington, D.C.’s celebrated Jaleo restaurant, has developed a number of signature dishes (e.g., a hollow bread stuffed with La Serena cheese and topped with jamón ibérico) and cocktails (such as a sorbet-like sangria made with liquid nitrogen) for SLS.”

Condé Nast Traveler

“The atmospheric lobby has outsized white chandeliers, shelves heaped with glossy art books and vintage hardbacks, and alcoves with fireplaces.”
