... to snooze a little. Wow! My tummy is rumbling and I'm starting to appreciate Qantas' free food. The nicest sound ever was to hear Nomes' Aussie voice calling out 'Cilla' as I stared, in a daze, at the baggage carousel. It was unbelievably good to see her again - I think it's been two months! We kept on having excited moments at the fact that we were in LA, and that we were together again! Both starving by this time we headed to Starbucks for food. ...

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.
Great View, but...
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.
Very Pleasant little hotel!
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.
The room was quaint, with comfortable furniture and adequate accessories. The CD player alarm clock was a nice touch. Each room has a balcony, and we enjoyed a couple of mornings out there overlooking the city. I don't want to give the impression that there are views from this hotel - it is so far from the "skyline" or "cityscape" that the haze obscures everything most of the time. But it was nice to have a balcony and overlook the adjoining streets. The hotel is in a residential area, about a half a mile to 3/4 of a mile away from the main shopping and attractions on Beverly/Rodeo drive. We had a car, so it wasn't a problem for us, but if you are planning to walk to anything, be prepared for a 15-20 minute walk to get to the main center of Beverly Hills. The area where the hotel is situated is pretty quiet.
However, this particular weekend there was a strike going on at the grocery street across the street, so cars driving by were continuously honking (well, from about 8 in the morning until about 11 at night).
Despite that fact, we got a good night's sleep on the Tempur-pedic mattress. I think these are great, however I know that most people either love or hate them. We happen to love them - very comfortable, and no aches and pains in the morning. The bathroom is fine with normal finishings, nothing special but it was clean. The hotel pool is nice, it is small but a good place to get some sun. The only problem is that it is right next to the hotel restaurant, which can be a little uncomfortable for the swimmers and the diners alike. One afternoon the restaurant and the pool were empty, another morning the restaurant was full and there were a few sunbathers around the pool. We did not eat at the restaurant, so I can't comment on the quality of the food. The only real negative to the place is the elevators. We stayed on one of the top few floors, and the elevators took FOREVER to arrive when we wanted to go to the first floor. I believe we were waiting for over 4 minutes once (I checked my watch because it had happened two or three times before as well) before we finally took the stairs down. Not a huge deal, but a little annoyance for sure.
The front desk/concierge staff were very friendly and professional. We requested a number of things from directions to tickets to restaurant reservations. Each time we got prompt service with a smile. I was particularly impressed when we requested directions to a restaurant and the front desk printed them out and delivered them to our room in less than 10 minutes. The only (very minor) complaint would be that there isn't always someone to answer the phones. Once when we called the phone rang over ten times with no answer. We tried again a few minutes later and got someone, so it wasn't a problem, but it was a bit disconcerting. Overall we were very happy with the level of service we received and the genuine courtesy shown to us throughout our stay. I would definitely stay here again, especially with the low rate that I got on hotwire. Very pleasant little hotel!
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.
The King rooms were spacious and had a lovely living area, we were very lucky as we had astounding views of L.A!!!!! The hotel decor was quite ummm different but those foam beds made up for it. I was dismayed at the lack of a concierge at a hotel in Beverly Hills but we made do.
There's a convenient store and a Starbucks right around the corner but thats about it. Rodeo Drive is about a 15 minute walk uphill!!!I wouldn't try it though, the cab fare is only $3. You basicallyhave to take a cab everywhere but there is a Bus stop by the hotel if you choose that alternative. Parking at the hotel is about $15 or more a day but if you plan to do a lot of sight seeing you probbaly should rent a car. I probably wouldn't stay there again except if i find a really good deal.
Even the Manager Said When Will It End!
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.
Beautiful Boutique Hotel!
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!
