Beverly Hills Centennial Means $7K/Night Room Specials
By Neal Broverman
Beverly Hills, the storied city surrounded by Los Angeles and West Hollywood, celebrates its centennial this year and there are some incredible hotel packages available if you are insanely, ridiculously wealthy.
The Beverly Hills Hotel, Montage Beverly Hills, Beverly Hilton, L'Ermitage, and the Peninsula Beverly Hills join together for a promotion called Suite 100 that celebrates the anniversary and glamour associated with the city. Each hotel will offer special suites themed to a specific decade — be it the 1940s, 50s, 60s, 70s, or 90s/modern era — with styles reflecting that era.
The Beverly Hills Hotel, for example, will highlight the 1950s, with much attention paid to Marilyn Monroe, who lived at the hotel for a bit during the Eisenhower era. The redesigned suite will reflect the design sensibilities of the time, including shag carpets, while Marilyn films, Chanel No. 5 (her favorite perfume), and original artifacts from her estate will be on display in the room. The suite starts at $3,795 a night (wowza) and possible add-ons include meals tailored after Marilyn's favorite dishes and airport transfers via a vintage car. Other hotels plan to dress up staff in period attire and offer more food and cocktails from the past. Room prices top out at $7,000 per night.
Some Suite 100 packages start at $1,914 a night (get it?), with reservations opening up January 28 for stays from March 7 to December 31. Read more here.
