Stayed four days at the BHH in January of this year. Bungalow suite #2-A. Yes, the decor is dated - and the bathrooms need update (gold! plating is wearing off the fixtures. BUT, we've never had a more comfortable bed - the room was SILENT. Motorized blinds, over shutters. For jet lagged types - it was nirvana. Our suite was close enough to the main hotel to be convenient, and spacious - with half bath, wood burning fireplace (with gas ignition), dining room and kitchen (which would have been better with a microwave -- but hey it had a SUBZERO full size refrig.)
Room service was flawless: the grilled scallops were as good as you could get anywhere - and we appreciated the complimentary champagne! Whenever you'd ask for something from room staff it would be "yes" and arrive almost immediately.
The concierge got us into the two top restaurants (in our opinion, anyway) with less than 24 hours notice and we opted for the hotel's offering of rental car (convenient as it's delivered to you once you've checked int) - expensive - but this IS Beverly Hills.
Although it's a bit "tired" in terms of decor - we loved the food and ambience of the Pool Grill. Club Sandwich is fantastic. BUT, it was the Polo Lounge that charmed.... fantastic breakfast and dinners. And a paper with your breakfast sir -- yep it arrived unbidden after the first day.
We both tried the La Prairie Spa - OMG. I had the men's "time saver" - a manicure, pedicure and facial performed by two attendants simultaneously. It's a little uncomfortable being a man in their spa - they're not set up exactly perfectly for men - so I had a treatment in the women's section. But the experience was a little out of body. AND - no pressure to purchase creams, etc. at the end. Men's changing room/steam/sauna is "empty" - never crowded - and spotless.
Headed back there is a few weeks. This is a classic hotel and of a "certain age" - if you like slick - go elsewhere. But if you want the real thing..... the Beverly Hills Hotel is IT.
