Montage Beverly Hills

Sep 1, 2013
2013

Arrival/Check-In: I love a hotel entrance with a circular drive. It makes a routine arrival seem more like an event, and my arrival at Montage Beverly Hills was no exception. As my cab pulled to a stop at the entrance, the valet opened the door while a bellman retrieved my bag. I was inside the bright and stylish lobby within minutes and on the way to my room shortly thereafter.

Guest Quarters: My 625-square-foot junior suite with a small balcony overlooking Beverly Canon Gardens was bright and airy, done in tones of rose beige and cream. Folding French-style doors with sheer curtain panels separated the bedroom and sitting area. Bedside tables flanked the king-sized bed; a simple settee bench was at the end of the bed. There were two large flat-screen televisions, one in the bedroom and one in the sitting area. The sitting area featured an L-shaped sleeper sofa that pulled out to a queen-sized bed. The work/entertainment area on the opposite side of the room featured an expansive desk equipped with myriad electric outlets and wired for optimum connectivity. Control panels for lighting, temperature and the draperies were located in both the sitting area and the bedroom. The marble bathroom with a soaking tub, separate shower and dual vanity was stocked with plenty of bath amenities.

Services/Amenities: Service throughout my stay was top-notch. I especially enjoyed making use of the hotel’s chauffeur-driven Mercedes-Benz courtesy cars for transport to meetings and events while I was in Los Angeles. While I didn’t have an opportunity to indulge in a service at the hotel’s 20,000-square-foot spa or take a dip in the rooftop swimming pool, I did stop by the on-site Kim Vō salon for a pick-me-up hair-and-make-up session where I learned that some of the salon’s regular clients are business travelers who time their trips to coincide with their salon appointments. Some of my colleagues and I also enjoyed a delightful alfresco luncheon at Conservatory Grille.

The Experience: Although it’s smack-dab in the middle of the world-class shopping and dining meccas of Rodeo and Canon drives and (barring heavy traffic) only 30 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport, Montage Beverly Hills feels like a private oasis.

Sum of Its Parts: Discover the True Pulse of the City in Chicago’s Diverse Neighborhoods

Without visiting, it’d be easy to throw Chicago into any number of categories. Everyone thinks they know Chicago; after all, it’s the third-largest city in America, the most prestigious foodie city in the country, the city of jazz, a comedian’s playground, an architect’s dream, a writer’s paradise. The list goes on. Only when walking the streets themselves do you realize there’s nothing categorical about the Windy City, especially as it continues to evolve.
