Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills
An extravagent gem, the Beverly Hills Four Seasons
The Beverly Hills Four Season has spared no expense in creating beautifully furnished, tastefully decorated accommodations. From the extravagent flower displays in the quiet, hushed atmosphere of the traditionally decorated foyer and reception areas, to the spacious, superbly appointed, serene rooms, one is surrounded by a sense of luxury and style. Amenities abound from a lush garden to a welcoming spa experience
However, you are definitely paying for all this luxury. Rates are steep, but one does feel that, for a few nights, all the pampering and style might just be worth it. Not necessarily for the ordinary traveller, but definitely worth it for those seeking a beautiful, restful retreat from the incessant pace of Los Angeles.
Tips for staying at the Four Seasons
For the price you pay, don't expect anything flash. We were a bit shocked to walk outside on a balcony to get to our rooms (think Los Angeles rain, wind and storms) and you get a nasty breeze up there! But the people are friendly and the rooms are clean. The towels could be a bit bigger but other than that it was good for the price.
I went with a group of friends for Thanksgiving brunch while in Los Angeles for the holiday weekend. Three men in suits were clearly standing and admiring the male guests as they walked through the dining room. Eyes , giggles, and comments. My partner and I clearly heard one make a comment to another one as we were walking by them. Later we realized that that they were employees of the hotel when one of them stopped by our table to "check on us" and make sure we were happy. Before we left we realized that one of the other 3 was an employee as well. For the price we paid for brunch yesterday the meal was a little better then mediocre. I would have thought that the staff would at least behave with the taste and decorum that other Four Seasons tend to exhibit. I couldn't help but think that if three heterosexual hotel employees were standing around and making comments about female clients that someone would have come along and broke it up. Tacky experience for brunch that people are attending with loved ones on a holiday.
From the moment you pull in to the drive, the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills presents its magic. Beautiful on the outside, as well as on the inside, the service is unmatched. If you are visiting LA for either business or leisure, the Four Seasons will provide you with a great experience, especially if you want to be pampered. Everything is great from the spa, to the pool, the outdoor fitness area, and the rooms are extremely well appointed. If possible, ask for a higher floor and enjoy the view of the city.
This hotel is great!
Too bad service like this is so hard to find! Stayed here many times, last time here was in January. Check in was great, got an automatic upgrade from jr. suite to suite. Great room, clean, luxurious and great views. Very quiet. Bar was busy that night, but wait staff was still attentive and friendly. Just an all around pleasure to stay at this hotel. Many think its too expensive, but if you're already paying a few hundred dollars per night, its really worth paying a little more to stay at this hotel. This is what service and cleanliness should be.
Real good and real bad!
A roller coaster ride. One minute fabulous - the next serious problems. I had a business trip and took my 3 kids. We stayed in an executive suite for 2 nights. The kids had a great time. We took the complimentary limo to the Petersen Auto Museum and Le Brea Tar Pitts. Concierge arranged for an evening babysitter, so I could get some work done. Concierge was outstanding. However, upon arrival I asked the bell staff how much tip the ave. person left him. He said 1 thousand dollars. Then on the way up the elevator he pushed all the buttons to every floor in front of my 7 year old. Upon leaving, we waited a half hour, and he never showed up. The Pool Restaurant was extremely slow and there were only 6 people out there. The Gardens Restaurant had great service, especially in the morning. While at the windows lounge, the waitress accidently splilled a pitcher of water down my back that ran into my shoes and purse. She brought me another chair and wipped the side of the table and then left. The next night I had a different waiter and he brought my order and disappeared. I had to find another waiter to pay. Also, one of the workers tried to pick up my 17 year old daughter. When she ignored him, he turned to me and said. She's a typical LA girl. The spa was wonderful. There was a mix-up with the type of message, but it got worked out. My daughter had a message with a new, inexperienced girl and was not as pleased. I called Room Service and asked for a kids hamburger plain and dry with french fries and extra ketchup. The person was confused so I repeated the order 3 times. Up came just the meat patty. The lady who brought it up quickly fixed the problem. All in all, the room and the concierge staff were fabulous. The service in the pool area and lounge needs much improvement.
I was lucky enough to spend a large portion of the last few months at the Four Seasons. I've never been made to feel more welcome anywhere in the world. The staff are beyond helpful, the food is fantastic and the beds oh so comfortable. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
Trendy scene with professional guest service
Los Angeles is full of trendy hotels for scenesters who need to be where the elite eat, drink, play and sleep. But many of them are staffed by folks who forget that they are there to provide service, not participate in the party. The Four Seasons, on the border of Beverly Hills, has a sky high celebrity index, but is also one of the best run hotels in the world - and that is an extremely rare combination. Only the nearby Peninsula Hotel can rival the Four Seasons when it comes to both glamour and top notch guest service. (I won't mention the dozen or so LA area hotels that offer the glitz but fail miserably at providing superior service.) We recently spent the Christmas holidays at the Los Angeles Four Seasons and we were so pleased with the overall experience that we extended our stay!
If I had to list one weak point for this hotel it would be its location, and it's in a very nice neighborhood and only several blocks from the heart of Beverly Hills. But unlike say the Regent Beverly Wilshire, you can't just step outside the hotel's front door and walk right into Barney's or Saks. But the hotel does offer a complimentary limo service to the BH shopping district and a cab ride only costs $3 or $4 and takes less than 5 minutes. For most Americans who are used to driving everywhere, the hotel's location is not an issue; but for anyone expecting to explore Beverly Hills on foot, they'll need to get there first.
Excellent Service, Immaculate Room
The best in L.A. Excellent service, immaculate rooms, central location.
Outstanding in every detail. Service exceptional. Food excellent. Room the best. Laundry super. Same for shoes. Best hotel I've visited.
