U.S. News Review

The Beverly Hills Hotel is iconic to La-La Land lore, made famous by The Eagles tune "Hotel California." But the Pink Palace has racked up quite a few fabled stories: Katharine Hepburn is said to have jumped into the pool fully clothed, and Elizabeth Taylor enjoyed six honeymoons here. Today, this Dorchester Collection hotel continues to cater to discerning travelers with stylish guest rooms (equipped with marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access and 24-hour room service), business amenities and a supreme Sunset Boulevard location. Travelers say the customer service is just as legendary as the hotel itself, praising the hotel staff for its attentiveness. And the on-site Polo Lounge is not only known for its celeb-spotting — it's known for serving up a mean breakfast as well.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure

“Also known as the "Pink Palace," this landmark hotel is housed in a pale-pink stucco building surrounded by tropical gardens. Originally built in 1912, the property is a gathering spot for the Hollywood elite, with former patrons ranging from Elizabeth Taylor to Paris Hilton.”
Award: Travel + Leisure 500 World's Best Hotels

Fodor's

“Recently upgraded standard rooms are also nothing to sneeze at, with original artwork, butler service, custom-made linens and duvets, walk-in closets, and huge marble bathrooms”

Oyster.com

“Twelve acres of lush grounds, this historic hotel is a serene, luxurious escape five minutes from Rodeo Drive. Its formal service and aura lend it a stuffier feel than the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire, but it also has anachronistic charms, like an old-fashioned soda fountain, plus a great pooland restaurants.”

Concierge.com

“The ... rooms, which differ in size and shape, are all furnished in plush, classic style, many with four-poster beds and marble-and-granite bathrooms with TVs.”
Award: Concierge.com Editors' Pick

Lonely Planet

“If the powdery pink walls of this belle hotel could talk, the tales would make you laugh, blush, cry and cringe. Staying here means dwelling in the utmost, old-school luxury.”
