We live in Southern California and have been going to the Hotel BelAir for 16 years. It is a opportunity for us to get away and feel we are 6000 miles from home yet only driving 60 miles. The property is tucked into a residential location and once you arrive the stress level goes to zero. The staff is well... More

The Bel Air is such a wonderful place it's hard to know where to begin. The setting is so secluded and romantic you will be in disbelief that you are in the middle of a busy urban setting. Greeted by the friendly valets who will whisk away your vehicle, stroll the bridge over the Swan Lake and enter paradise. While... More

Despite staying just one night we enjoyed the incredible quality of service, which one can no longer find in most luxury hotels. The environment in which the hotel is situated made our stay even more enjoyable and found we could easily relax within the hotel area and in very comfortable rooms.

My wife and I checked in after a night at the BHH. As I said in that review, BHH is about as perfect as it can get. HBA is more "about as perfect as it can get" I love how the property is tucked away and most people couldn't tell you how to get there. I love how we felt... More

From whoa to go, this hotel is a national treasure.

Great property with lots of history. It's not so easy to get to, but that's actually the point. If you want a quiet place that's out of the hustle and bustle of the noisy Los Angeles streets, then this is the place for you.

People always ask me what it is about the Bel Air that sets it apart from all other Los Angeles properties. Why do I love it so much. It is honestly in a class all it's own..... period! Not just in LA, but in the entire US! The Hotel Bel Air is lumped into a category in LA with the... More

We've been going to the Bel Air hotel many times now, even twice this summer! It was our hub for our vacation this year in Japan.

I've never experienced a hotel quite like the Hotel Bel-Air. A friend and I flew to LA for Comic Con, before heading down to San Diego I scheduled an extra night in LA - I had been wanting to visit the Hotel Bel-Air since my first visit to LA many years ago. You can tell this hotel is in a... More
