Loews Beverly Hills Hotel
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
This morning was one to be impressed with the LA bus system.
The trip back to Santa Monica to pick up my Visa card cost US$1.00 with the $1 note fed into a small machine at the front door.
No Myki mess, no zones, no 2-hour versus all day options. Just $1 for as far as you like (or about $3 for an all day ticket.) For a Sunday …
I arrived at the hotel in a daze- I had got through the airport so quickly I was in shock! Nothing like the rigmarole of New York or Florida- I was off the plane at 3.20 and in a taxi at 3.45! Was so smug i was 3rd in line for security then walked up to the carousel just as my bag went past!
Hotel is fabulous- great room with two …
This might be more important to some than others, but I've always thought if I was planning to pay, I'd just host it myself. For a lot of, home hosting is significantly more involved than they want to get, in this instance, settled blogging sites do offer the ultimate in ease of use and you won't ever have to be concerned about creating hosting or installing scripts on your machine.

All boarded on the Queen Mary, wow!! I imagine it is like what being on the Titanic would have been like. We have strolled the decks & popped in some of the shops already.

Historical Traveler Reviews Loews Beverly Hills Hotel Los Angeles
My wife and I had a fantastic stay at this hotel. The accomodations were wonderful, the entire staff was extremely nice and helpful, and the location was close to perfect. Even with the $19/day for valet parking, this hotel was very reasonably priced for this caliber of hotel. I've stayed at hotels twice the cost that didn't leave a better impression. We would definitely stay here again.
What can I say? The view from the balcony on the north side is spectacular; you can see the Hollywood sign in the distance. The staff are young and enthusiastic, but not very experienced. The reason I will not stay at this hotel again is because while the beds were comfortable, the linens were dirty. In most hotels there is an illusion of cleanliness because the bedspread is dark and what you can't see can't hurt you. But the decor here is white bedspreads and light coloured accent pillows, material headboard and slip covers on the furniture-all had visible black etc. stains (there was even blood on the underside of the bedspread). This completely grossed me out and were it not for the great view and the fact that I had prepaid and could not change the hotel, I would have. Not exactly what I expected from a Loews chain hotel which was the most suprising of all.
I just stayed at the Loews Beverly Hills for three nights from 11/13 to 11/16. What a great little hotel! The location is just right -- it's at the edge of a residential area but very convenient to everything I wanted to do in L.A. The area is quiet and clean instead of trafficky and dirty like a lot of L.A. is. The room was darling -- spacious and well-decorated. The high-speed Internet access was the best I've used yet in a hotel -- reliable and easy to sign onto, with a $9.95 charge from noon to noon (which is on par with other hotels). The staff was very, very nice and genuinely friendly. They offered to run across the street to the drugstore because they didn't have any Tylenol or Advil when I called and asked for my travel companion's headache. The Tempurpedic bed took some getting used to...my back ached the first two nights and I felt like I slept much harder than usual. The toiletries provided in the bathroom were generous and smelled great. The only thing I did not like was the steep charge for mandatory valet parking -- $19/day. I suppose that's par for the course in Beverly Hills though. We got a great Hotwire rate and ended up in a corner room with a wraparound balcony and views of downtown and Hollywood. I would definitely stay here again.
My significant other and I stayed at the Loews Beverly Hills from October 23 through October 26. Overall, the hotel had good amenities, was in a good location, and we experienced great service while we were there.
Quiet, yet convenient
This 1960's era high rise is just south of the LA-Beverly Hills border, a 10 minute walk to Rodeo Drive. It's been beautifully renovated and our amply sized room was both stylish and comfortable (especially the heavenly Tempur-Pedic mattresses!). All rooms have balconies. Be sure to ask for a room on the north side, with views over the red-tiled roofs of Old LA residential neighborhoods to the Hollywood Hills beyond, and no noise from busy Pico Blvd., which fronts the hotel on the south. If you want to be in the middle of action, go elsewhere. We wanted a quiet retreat from which we could travel each day; for us it was ideal.
Fair warning: mandatory valet parking, $20 a day.
I just returned from a week stay at Loews Beverly Hills and wouldn't have changed a thing. The rooms was beautifully decorated and the service was some of the best I have experienced. A friend came to visit and wanted to swim but did not have a bathing suit. We ask at the front desk where would be the closest place to buy a suit and they said they would take care of it. Within 15 minutes a new mens size medium and a large suit were delivered to the room, new with tags. They let us pick one. They keep different items on hand for guest needs. They would not except any payment for the suit. Thats what I call service. The restaurant in the hotel is wonderful with a true gourmet chef. Treat yourself the next time your in L.A.
I stayed at the Loews Beverly Hills Hotel from August 8-11 of 2003 with my family of 6. We paid the full rate as it was a last minute vacation.
Well, where to begin! I stayed at the Loews Beverly Hills from Aug 14 - Aug 20. First, they are understaffed - Loews took over about 6 weeks prior to our visit. On our late night arrival, the same gentleman was the valet, bellman, maintenance and maid. Our toilet overflowed upon arrival at 1:00am. The gentleman that had parked the car and brought up the luggage came up to fix the toilet and then to get a mop and clean it up. Additionally, the thermastat could not be changed and the curtains and bedspread had stains (the manager said that they are working on deep cleaning each room starting on the ground floor - we were on the 3rd floor). The maid failed to remove the previous occupants hair conditioner from the bathroom and never replenished the supplies (we had to track her down to get more), one day she even took the half used bar of soap and didn't give us a new one. Someone had opened the suntan lotion in the mini bar and even though we mentioned this (we didn't want to be charged for it) it wasn't removed until we spoke to the manager at the end of our stay. My friend went downstairs to get coffee one morning only to be yelled at by the staff for trying to enter the restaurant - they apologized since they were wrong about it actually being open when they thought it wasn't. But the point being you don't yell at a guest regardless. We received a wake up call at 5:45am instead of 6:45am (I guess that is better than later), the final straw was at about 7:00pm we were taking a nap and a hotel employee came into our room after only one knock. It didn't end though with speaking to the manager. He gave us our parking for free during our stay but then when he sent up the maid to give us soap - she left the door open (she put the deadbolt out and never fixed it) we left the hotel at 1:30pm returned at 4:30pm to find the door not locked. Luckily nothing was missing - we called the manager who stated "It never ends!" He apologized perfusely and sent up some fruit and cheese. While the staff was generally friendly and nice they need work on how to properly run a hotel. Got a great price but put up with a lot!
A wonderful stay!
My wife and I just got back from Beverly Hills where we stayed at the Loews (formerly the Renaissance) for three nights. The staff is wonderful, the location is good in that you're a few long blocks off of the main shopping areas where all the people are. The neighborhood is quiet, and there is a grocery store across the street. The room was exquisitely appointed, almost like a private designer did it personally, and the beds are to die for! They all have the Swedish Tempur-Medic mattresses, man what a way to sleep! I highly advise this hotel. Keep in mind, it is in Beverly Hills and the costs are in accordance, however it is much less than many others nearby.
Stayed from 4/12/03-4/19/03. At the top of a hill, overlooking Beverly Hills, Downtown LA and Hollywood, this hotel is lovely, reminiscent of hotels I visited in Europe. Quaint decor, a beautiful balcony, lovely downstairs terrace at the entrance and living/sitting room. All made this larger chain hotel seem smaller and more personal. The staff was absolutely wonderful, made our trip easy and memorable. We were able to walk down Rodeo Drive and Beverly drive for shopping (not a short walk but very nice, attractive, through residential area.) Able to see the Hollywood sign, Beverly Hills from our 6th floor balcony. Nice pool area and food was great (Mediterranean style) in the Tiara restaurant. Room service great and very fast. I cannot complain about anything in this hotel. Only thing I could say is some of the wallpaper in bathroom showed a little wear. This is not the fanciest hotel in town but probably one of the nicest for hospitality. The bed was a Swedish therapeutic mattress. I haven't slept this well for years! Highly recommend!
