Hotel Bel Air is truly MAGICAL! My review is long overdue - we stayed here over the 4th of July last year because we wanted a quick and easy getaway from San Diego. To be honest I didn't even know about Hotel Bel Air until my boyfriend came across it online, and I'm so glad he did! The hotel staff... More

It is a good hotel, the room looks great, the environment is amazing...But somehow their chair in the room broke, which hurt my boyfriend. For a hotel like this, I did not see this coming. They did sent someone to check and gave us a ice pack, but thats all they did...And now my bf has to go and see... More

We had not been to the Hotel Bel Air since 2009 which was before the renovation. We had some time in LA and decided to go back. Glad we did. The renovations blend seamlessly into the original property. Still has its old character and charm. Service was excellent. The property and surrounding area is very quiet. The grounds are beautiful.... More

We had the pleasure of returning to the Bel Air for an eight day stay and although I always think my time here cannot get any better, it does. Thanks to Dawn, Nathaniel, Emma, Nicole and everyone up front! Truly an amazing Concierge and front desk staff. The attentiveness to detail regarding your stay by these ladies and gentlemen is...

We just spent a weekend at this Dorchester Property. The hotel sits on beautiful and lush ground in the hills of Bel Air. The rooms all feel like little cottages and are spread out over the acreage. Note that you will be walking to and from your room through outdoor paths that are heavily landscaped as there are no interior... More

This hotel is just simply “special” and ranks in my top 5 globally. It oozes, classic, understated and true luxury – from food to service to décor. Avoid the trap of many of the more glitz Beverly Hills or Santa Monica hotels and look no further than the hotel Bel-Air.

While the setting and facilities are outstanding it is the excellence of the staff that makes the Bel-Air a standout. From reception to the housekeeping staff ones needs are anticipated and satisfied This is truly a hotel worth a detour - an oasis
