A complimentary bottle of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a bowl of ripe peaches greeted us upon our return to this iconic jewel, celebrating it's 100th Anniversary. It felt like coming home. Friendly, warm and classy without pretense or airs. My good friend and I reprised our Southern Cal trip of 2010, doubling the nights at this lovely dream of a hotel from 2 to 4. The rooms are large and lovely. I requested the same room as last time, a deluxe queen facing the iconic pink towers. Large bathrooms with double sinks. Delicious deep tub with separate marbled shower. A plus, the windows actually crank open onto the cool night which is so refreshing in this age of sealed air! Dinner at the Polo Lounge is a memorable experience. The famous Polo Lounge carrot cake is a must for dessert. To think how many Hollywood icons sat at the bar, or made big picture deals over these very tables. Yes I am starstruck when it comes to old Hollywood and what better place to stay then inside these storied walls. The parking valets were the best. The pool and flowing fountain were so relaxing,as you sink into the cushions on the chaise. And don't miss the Beverly Hills Hotel's Coffee Shop, even if you get a croissant to go, or sit at the counter for blueberry pancakes. ...But where is the chandelier? Only negative, my friend who is originally from Hollywood many moons ago, remembers the beautiful chandelier, which was still hanging over the red carpeted stairway on our 2010 visit, (took a photo of her & this chandelier!) has sadly been replaced. Otherwise thank you for another beautiful stay, until next time...
