Los Angeles’ SLS Hotel Beverly Hills

Aug 1, 2013
2013 / August 2013

Arrival/Check-In: I was thankful to stay at SLS Beverly Hills while in Los Angeles. I have stayed at several different Starwood properties, but the SLS in Beverly Hills had a unique, modern vibe all its own.

Upon check-in, staff warmly greeted me, and the check-in process was quick and painless. I arrived a bit early, and they put a rush on the housekeeping inspection for me. In the meantime, Christian, who was genuinely friendly and helpful, stored my luggage and directed me to check out the pool until my room was ready. The lobby of the hotel was hip, and I did have a few celebrity sightings.

Guest Quarters: My room was upgraded to a suite; I always appreciate this perk of being a Starwood Preferred Guest. I was impressed with the amount of storage space in the room. I think there was more closet and drawer space than in my New York City apartment. The other highlights of the room were the comfortable bed, large bathroom and the entertainment center (there was a funky glass overlay on the flat-screen TV). There was a desk area behind the bed and a separate table that could be used as workspace.

Services/Amenities: I went up to the sixth floor and walked around the pool area, which really felt more like an outdoor living room. It was a beautiful, sunny day; if I had more time there, I could see myself relaxing by the pool and enjoying the city view. I decided to head down to the fourth floor and take a peek at the gym and the Ciel spa. The gym was spacious, and all of the Life Fitness equipment appeared to be brand-new. The spa was open, and the all-white entry smelled like relaxation was taking place inside. I heard amazing things about the restaurant; and if I make a trip back to the hotel, I will be sure to check it out.

The Experience: Everything with the stay was exceptional; no complaints. I hope I can get back to the SLS in Beverly Hills again soon because my stay was fabulous.

Airlines Elevate the Premium Travel Experience in the Air and on the Ground

Airplane travel evokes a lot of emotions these days: excitement, anticipation, uncertainty and nervousness, just to name a few. But when you do take to the skies again, the giddiness of getting pampered at 35,000 feet can most certainly wash away the surrealness of the past year and a half — at least for the duration of a long- haul flight — as you sip Champagne and slip your feet into plush slippers. While some global airlines have paused or pushed back plans for upgrades and refreshes to their premium cabins, others have introduced exciting changes that await in your pod or lie-flat bed in first and business classes. What’s more, amenities like privacy screens, sliding suite doors and space to spread out all serve a dual purpose as methods to luxuriate in the air while keeping social distance. Here are some nice- ties to expect now and in the near future, from retrofitted seat configurations to updated décor to Michelin-starred meals:
