The city has an impressive total of over 2,200 hotel rooms and is home to one of the largest concentrations of five star hotels in the US, second only to New York City. The opening of Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills will add another 170 rooms to the count.
The global luxury hotels market is booming and is expected to reach almost $200 billion USD by 2021 according to Transparency Market Research. Julie Wagner, CEO of Beverly Hills Conference and Visitors Bureau comments: “Newly-remodeled hotels, such as L’Ermitage Beverly Hills and Mosaic Hotel, and the launch of Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills will certainly boost the city’s existing reputation as the world’s hub of five star hotels and luxury travel, helping drive the growth of the industry in Beverly Hills.”
Mosaic Hotel launched in August 2015, following a multi-million dollar makeover
Following an extensive renovation, Mosaic Hotel, an intimate boutique 49-room luxury hotel, has launched this summer. The hotel’s new design, as envisioned by London-based design firm, Luxlo, is rich and alluring, and celebrates California through the injection of bright colours and original design elements. From the whimsical palm trees on the wallpaper, a trademark of Beverly Hills, to the ultramodern artwork, such as a custom weave sculpture by Renee Dinauer and original artwork by David Dauncey.
A classic doorman donning a Bowler hat greets guests on arrival and ushers them into a welcoming lobby complete with a medley of the world’s finest furnishings and fabrics. The hotel’s pool area has also been given a new look with sleek white furniture, cabanas and cosy fire pit to deliver an inspiring setting to swim and unwind.
L’Ermitage Beverly Hills to unveil a new design by winter 2015
The iconic all-suite, five-star L’Ermitage Beverly Hills, Viceroy Hotel Group's luxury retreat destination, will unveil the re-design of its stunning 117 suites, public areas and restaurant, to be completed at the end of 2015. ￼
The new design by luxury design firm Smith/Firestone Associates (SFA Design) encompasses spacious suites, which start at 650 sq. feet, and incorporates lavish Venetian cut-glass mirrors which reflect caramel-coloured walls, shimmering with gold and grey sparkle. This leads guests to a celebrity-ready dressing room, complete with a walk-in closet and a selection of mirrors featuring indoor and outdoor lighting settings. The perfect reimagining of this Beverly Hills retreat is completed by how the floor-to-ceiling suede and velvet headboards, white onyx and grey marble, eclectic art and inspiring technology align in the bedroom.
Plans for an innovative and chic restaurant concept and the hotel lobby will be announced soon.
