Posh re­lax­ation by Rodeo

World Travel Magazine - - Architecture & Design Marvels Where To Stay -

Pierre-yves Ro­chon makes a state­ment in the en­ter­tain­ment cap­i­tal of the world where lux­ury is an art and ar­chi­tec­ture a sport. Des­tined to be an icon, The Wal­dorf As­to­ria, Beverly Hills reimag­ines Stream­line Moderne, tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion all things Hol­ly­wood, and in­fuses it with by­gone glam­our of the thir­ties and for­ties. Por­tuguese lime­stone reaches 12 sto­ries into the Cal­i­for­nia clear blue sky and wel­comes you to a grand three-story lobby at the fa­mous cor­ner of Sun­set and Wil­shire, only blocks away from sto­ried Rodeo Drive. Lalique glass­ware and hand-painted mu­rals up the ro­mance as do the lux­u­ri­ous gar­dens. El­e­gant coastal fur­nish­ings help you set­tle into re­lax­ation mode and Cal­i­for­nia’s easy, ef­fort­less and el­e­gant life­style where ev­ery­thing is big­ger, even ul­tra-lux­ury. Over­sized bal­conies and panoramic win­dows en­hance the suite ex­pe­ri­ence with stun­ning views of Beverly Hills. 170 guest rooms all fea­ture ter­races and floor-to-ceil­ing views, cap­i­tal­is­ing on the vis­tas out­side. The rooftop bar’s 360-de­gree views of a mam­moth cityscape and rolling hills pro­vide all the drama you’d ex­pect in the city that’s home to Hol­ly­wood’s elite. How did they cel­e­brate the open­ing of the $200 mil­lion dol­lars stun­ner? With a death-de­fy­ing Bat­man walk down all twelve sto­ries of Por­tuguese mar­ble, of course. Wel­come to Beverly Hills. With the Wal­dorf As­to­ria in New York closed for ren­o­va­tions over the next few years, Cal­i­for­nia is ready to host the tried-andtrue. wal­dor­fas­to­ri­abev­er­ly­
