As a world-class destination, LA is certainly not lacking when it comes to luxury hotels. The city is home to some of the world’s best, each offering a unique guest experience. The Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills offers a more convenient luxury experience, putting you in close proximity to shopping and dining in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the surrounding areas.
The Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is aptly named as it sits right between Los Angeles and Beverly Hills (and West Hollywood). It’s on Doheny Drive, close to all of LA’s popular shopping, dining and tourist attractions and things to do from DTLA to Santa Monica. The hotel has a complimentary car service which will take you anywhere within two miles of the hotel. You can even walk to some areas in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood including the popular Beverly Center mall.
The Hollywood Suite
We stayed in one of the hotel’s fabulous Hollywood Suites, a 630-square-foot, one-bedroom accommodation with a step-out balcony. Ours was on the 11th floor, facing east and offering a nice 180-degree view of the city. The Hollywood Suite has a separate, interior bedroom (no window), a bit offset from the living room area and separated by real, closing doors. It offered good privacy for two people, one in the bedroom and one on the sofa bed. The couch in the large living area is a sofa bed and the hotel kindly made it up for us before bedtime.
The marble bathroom was very large with a very big, luxurious glassed in shower along with a huge soaking tub. Too many luxury hotels these days are eliminating bathtubs so I always like to see them.
I had two wonderful dining experiences at the hotel. On arrival, we had a great dinner at Culina Ristorante, the Four Seasons’ trattoria. The Italian menu offered a lot of faithful standards, we went with a Margherita pizza and a New York Strip steak. Sides included some delicious grilled brocollini and fingerling potatoes. Starters were Caesar salads with grilled chicken which were also delicious and would have been enough on their own! For dessert we had a chocolate chip cookie along with some mint chocolate chip gelato and raspberry sorbet. Service was warm, friendly and on-point.
In the morning, we had a beyond-indulgent room service, sorry in-room dining, breakfast. The vast morning meal was made even better with those sweeping views of the LA skyline (well the Wilshire Corridor skyline), visible through the open French doors of our suite’s balcony.
To co-host my video suite tour and experience the Four Seasons LA, I was joined by my buddy, actor, singer and comedian Stephen Kramer Glickman, best known for his role as Gustavo on the hit Nickelodeon TV series “Big Time Rush”.
Since the Four Seasons is one of LA most luxurious and exclusive hotels, I thought it was appropriate to arrive in transportation equally as luxurious and exclusive. For this getaway, I chose the 2023 Aston Martin Vantage F1 Coupe, the British automaker’s special edition tribute to its return to Formula One racing. With a twin-turbo V8 engine with 562 horsepower and special track dynamics and tuning, it made driving to the Four Seasons a breeze and impressed even the jaded valet parking guys (who see and drive every kind of supercar every day).
