This is a great place to escape LA. As soon as I pulled into the driveway, I felt my blood pressure go down. (The ramps for the 405 freeway were under construction during our stay, and going anywhere on the 405 was painful.) Our room was not quite ready when we arrived, and we were provided a complimentary drink in the bar. Before we had finished the drink, our room was ready. We were upgraded to a balcony room. It had a fireplace, which we will need to come back in the winter to try. You can control most of the room functions from an iPad. Some of the furniture fabric had an indoor/outdoor quality to it, and the color scheme was gray except for an accent wall by the entry, which I think was green. I'm sure a designer put a lot of effort into the room, and I probably have little fashion sense. Nonetheless, my wife and I loved the Bel-Air. The staff is terrific. Their restaurant was excellent for all meals; the hamburger at lunch was fantastic.
