5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I don't have words to describe how happy I was to stay here. They had chocolate covered strawberries, they put petals on the beds, and they went above and beyond in treating us (chilled champagne in the room!), even though we just told them when we checked in it was a special occasion. Food was amazing too.

Classy, not in your face, not too much of a scene, just a high quality, high class hotel. One of my favourite around the world, the bel air makes you feel special, and it is. Food, staff, the property, everything exudes class and sophistication. If you can afford it, there is none better.

We visited the bar and restaurant and got a great ambiance of serenity and calm from the surroundings - you can see why it is like an oasis from the hustle of LA's shopping centres - well worth a visit - highly recommended.

We absolutely loved this property!! The rooms were chic and spacious and the service was beyond fantastic. From management to front desk, housekeeping to bell and restaurant staff, everyone was so helpful and friendly. Our flight was cancelled and Malik helped us to get rooms for the additional night without any issues. Further, the food on the restaurant was delicious... More

This hotel used to be the best hotel in LA, then some corporation bought it and destroyed it with very bad interior decoration that demolished its charm and the individuality of the rooms and replaced it with a standard Hong Kong inspired uniformity of design that that is absolutely awful. All the good LA guide books that used to rate... More

We really enjoyed our spring stay at the Hotel Bel Air. Our first attempted visit was canceled due to an unfortunate scheduling snafu, but the hotel graciously arranged a later courtesy stay to compensate. The hotel complex is remote from the main Beverly Hills shopping area but the tucked-away, exclusive, lush location makes your visit a soothing respite for the... More
