Travel Blogs from Beverly Hills
Phew, arrived at last. Journey from home was good apart from one scary moment near Istanbul, the plane did some kind of half roll trick. Rick realised on landing his Mont Blanc pen had slipped down the side of his chair, after trying to fish it out unsuccessfully , we were relieved by several air crew who after 15 mins and finding 2 Turkish …
... cars, roads, walking, light switches, taps, everything! We were growled at by a man on the street today "What do you think your doing?!" At first I thought he was just a little loopy, but then realised he was mad at us for taking up the left side of the footpath instead of the right, whoops.
It's also cold here. Wasn't expecting that. We have pretty much packed only for summer so our one pair of pants and jumpers will be all ...
We spent Friday at Universal Studios. We started out with the studio tour which was fantastic. The tour takes you through the backlot of the movie studio and has lots of things to see. We saw the city street lots of different eras that feature in heaps of movies... Modern buildings, New York, European looking streets, old western towns or a Mexican look. The tour bus goes through different ...
... to go and check out Walmart. As I really wanted to see the toy aisle next to the gun aisle, which I did get to see. They sold BB Guns, to rifles to hand guns. I couldn't believe my eyes, no wonder they have so much problems with guns here. The guns ranged from $50 up to about $250 each. So I can now say that I have walked down a toy aisle and then the gun aisle next to each other. So that was our day. Tomorrow the plan is to go Hollywood and the ...
... and Lauren became driver and I navigated! We got on our first freeway which was slightly nerve racking as there are loads of lanes and you can't just sit in the outside lane because without warning it veers you off the freeway! But we both stayed very calm and managed to get to Walmart and were very pleased with ourselves :-) This Walmart was huge and they even sold sat navs so we bought the cheapest because (a) we have no idea how to get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beverly Wilshire Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel)
Good location and service, suites not up to standards
One of the best hotels, the lobby was beautiful and the service was great. However, for an executive suite the room was nothing to rave about. The view was air conditioning units and the noise was just as bad as the view. The room was very small and I coulldn''t imagine what a normal room was like. The breakfast at the Dining room has great food and great china.
I would return again because I visited other hotels such as the Beverly Hills Hotel, and there decor is just awful and old.
A teen's dream
We spent 5 nights here with our 13 year old niece and a friend, stayed in an exec suite with connecting room in the beverly wing. We have stayed here several times but first trip in three years. It is better than ever. Service was great, concierge got us in everywhere we wanted to go. Stay in Beverly wing if you can it is updated and just feels right. Downside is the pool is small and do not use the spa/salon for nails and treatments, use one of the day spas that are much more luxurious and treat you better, the outside vendor at the rbw is talented but you just don't feel special. Make use of the house car for dinner and so, but be prepared to shop shop shop, it just doesn't get any better than this. And the celeb sighting is unreal, the girls rode an elevator with colin ferrel, they didn't speak for fourty minutes!
Great Hotel but not kids friendly
Beautiful setting. Gym was fantastic. Very classy act. Location is excellent - just off Rodeo Drive. However, suite we stayed in with the kids were not very kids friendly: had to walk through a small corridor to access the sitting area where the rollaway is. Service is adequate only - we asked for another rollaway for my two kids but was told it would not fit into the room (plenty of space). Generally took a long time for housekeeping to delliver stuff like towels etc.
We stayed here for 5 nights in May 2004. I can only describe this as the most perfect hotel we have ever been in. Concierge service was amazing - they acted quickly to our requests and volunteered lots of useful information to us. Even the reception staff were attentive and called us to check our room was ok after we had checked in. Food was sublime. Gym was fully equipped and again service from staff was 5*. They also have a bar in the hotel - the service from the two barmen there was the best though - their expertise and manner was perfect. We were so sorry to leave !
We will be returning again ....... watch this space.
My friend and I stayed here as a 'splurge' on our trip to the USA in June 2003 and it was just great. The service was fanstastic and very professional - and our room was perfect, looking out onto Rodeo Drive (a shopaholics dream!). We would like to thank Judy for her help with our booking - she was absolutely wonderful and went that extra mile to make our stay special.
Great... but not the best
This hotel was the last stop on our honeymoon before returning to England. In many ways it was excellent, particularly the standard of our suite and the superb breakfast and dinner menus. And there were some wonderful touches like the complimentary wine and strawberries on arrival.
But it seemed to lack that something special that we were looking for.
The service seemed just a little too anodyne; the decor and furnishings were lovely, but didn't exude genuine charm. In short, a great hotel, but if you are looking for a really special experience, there are many better places in the world.
The World's Greatest Hotel
This hotel by far is the finest in the world. Everything from the doorman to the housekeepers was perfect. Our suite was outstanding...
the loaction priceless...
If you are looking for the best in everything. this is the hotel for you.
Best Hotel Ever
This was the best hotel ever. The service was excellent and what a location. We ate dinner several nights in the hotel because the food was outstanding. I can't think of staying any other place the next time I am in Los Angeles.
Wonderful (07 AUG 2003)
Worth every penny. Each and every member of the staff displayed an outstanding, welcoming, friendly, polite attitude. There was no pretense, only pleasantness. The service was excellent. The room was wonderful. We stayed in a suite in the historic Wilshire Wing with a view of Rodeo Drive. It had two newly renovated marble bathrooms. Very nice. The Ambassador--Ron Howard--shared stories w/ my wife and I about the rich history of the hotel and gave us a tour of the famously giant and spectacular suite atop the Beverly Wing. My wife received a massage in the Spa that she claimed was the best massage she had ever had. My wife does not know it yet, but we will be staying in a suite at the Waldorf Astoria for our anniversary in 2004, and I am eager to see how it compares with the Regent Beverly Wilshire. Thanks to all at the RBW for creating a beautiful memory.
There's no substitute for class!
A really classy hotel, we had an excellent time here. Hotel was really comfortable and service was impeccable; evrything done just right with a minimum of fuss. Will definitely stay again!
