Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills

Feb 4, 2016
2016

Arrival/Check-In: I arrived at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills after a 13-plus-hour flight from İstanbul, and I was grateful for the warm welcome I received from the staff. In just the time it took me to swipe my credit card in the taxi, my bags had been taken inside and the front-desk attendant was looking up my reservation. The doorman had a big smile on his face as he held the door for me, and within five minutes I was escorted to the elevators. Since I had to quickly shower and meet my cousin for dinner, I opted to take my bags to the room with me, but the staff was more than willing to assist. On my way to my room, I had my first celebrity sighting — of the four-legged variety. The dog model for the Cesar dog food brand was peacefully lying down as his handlers consulted the concierge.

Guest Quarters: My deluxe balcony room was comfortable for my short, one-night stay. French doors opened to a balcony affording views of Los Angeles, which was a welcome sight as I did work before departing the next morning. Opening the shades flooded the room with natural light.

As one enters, the large bathroom lies to the left. The first room offers two counters, one with a sink and ample space for toiletries, and the other, across the room with a second mirror mounted above, is perfect for doing hair or putting on makeup. The tub, stall shower and toilet are through this room, with a door for added privacy if two guests or a family are staying here.

The king-sized bed is flanked by two nightstands with an iPod docking station and lamps with built-in electrical outlets — one of my favorite features in hotel rooms. After my flight and a quick dinner out, I was so thankful to sink into the comfortable bed, and I slept soundly all night. The room also houses a long dresser/minibar/armoire hybrid, with a black marble top and a flat-screen TV mounted above. The desk, also equipped with ample outlets, features an iPad 2 with Interactive Customer Experience technology. An armchair, small table and floor lamp create a cozy corner nook for reading or relaxing.

Services/Amenities: My stay was far too quick to enjoy the many on-site amenities, but I did enjoy breakfast at Culina, Modern Italian, the on-site restaurant, also open for lunch and dinner. In-room dining and the pool-side Cabana Restaurant offer additional dining options.

In addition to the fitness center, spa and business center, Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills offers complimentary WiFi; luxury car transportation within a two-mile radius; bottled water at turndown; and coffee, tea, muffins and fruit in the lobby daily from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. The property also offers a range of meeting and event space.

The Experience: One sentence sums it up: If nothing else, I wish I had more than one night to experience Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
