Travel Blogs from Beverly Hills
We left Dana Point around 9am on Saturday for our long drive up the 101 Highway to San Francisco.
Mummy thought it would be a good idea if we dropped into Beverley Hills and Hollywood.
......... The rest of us just went along for the ride!
We had a Venezuelan breakfast in Beverley Hills! Daddy thought it was a bit rich, then we went for a walk ...
... Awesome costume even if he did take the **** out of me and call me 'Sasquatch'.
We carried on to the ride which I thought would most likely be junk given it was a 3D ride. That mean't it was a simulator ride, so how good could it really be ? It certainly was popular as we queued for over an hour to get on the feckin thing. But it sure as hell was worth the wait. It was easily the best simulator ride I have ever been on and arguably the best ride I'd been on at any ...
We all woke up quite late, got up about 11 with a so head. Get chatting to a local guy and his dog, he's staying there as is apartment has been flooded. Nice guy, loved the English accent. The girls and I tried to go and buy some more weed, thinking it would be easy as they have heir licence, to so! You have to also be a Californian citizen, we drove round for hours trying different places but all ...
... in sight. Wow on 3rd street promenade, every shop you can think off. Wonderful to see, had to tell myself just keep walking, just keep walking, no matter how Loud the shops called, as I was about to give in we had to rush for the last bus! Saved by a bus! We then went to century mall to movies, saw Mud, very drawn out, even with hunky Mathew Mcconaughey. Maybe a 5. Then back to hotel at 10:30 long day. Mom off to bed, quintin off to a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Crescent Beverly Hills
Stayed at Crescent 3 nights at end of April. Very clean and staff was superb. Room was small but adequate. Will stay again on next LA trip. Price is very, very reasonable.
When I stayed there 5 years ago, I really liked the place with its Miami Beach hotel feel and free snacks and fruit juices in the morning and I decided to return in January 2004.
March 2004-- Here's the good: great location, elegant and hip, intimate, nice bedding, LCD TV with lots of cable choices, Aveda skin care products, cool bathroom, great price (I paid $140, but there are plenty of ways to pay for extras). Here's the bad: double room is SMALL, and I'm a New Yorker! Bathroom door can't open all the way--only a few feet of space around double bed. Am I in Japan? NOT for 2 people, but they may have larger rooms. No closet (small wardrobe), no full length mirror, one small towel bar, no room to put luggage, incredibly thin walls (bring earplugs, I heard the person next door snoring and the other room had a wee hours conversation I heard word for word) and aloof and inattentive staff (at least they look good, but a simple hello would be nice--the valets were very friendly). Cool music CDs in room, but open them and you pay $25 each. Clock radio needs manual to decipher (again, looks are everything). BUT one of the few places in LA where you can actually walk to stores--Whole Foods down the street, Rodeo Drive a few blocks, many restaurants and easy commute to all the best places in western LA. There's an attractive bar and restaurant in the lobby and nice outdoor patio in front--great place to meet up with friends and have a drink. Valet parking was convenient, expensive ($15/day) but good for frequent ins and outs. I'd stay again, but upgrade to a larger room. And bring less luggage.
Best Deal in Beverly Hills!!!!!!!!
Location was great, room was very clean, and staff was friendly. Hotel had best rates in area and we plan to make it our place to saty in Beverly Hills.
I regret 100% staying at this crap hotel. I agree, the price was not
I stayed at this hotel while on holiday in Beverly Hills. It's fabulous! Recently refurbished, this hotel is very modern, yet warm and homely. At night the place transforms into a popular hot-spot. It has the feel of a fantastic party in a gorgeous home! The bar resembels a kitchen at a party. The Chef is wonderful, the patio is quaint, like sitting in your friends patio. I loved it and would recommend it to everyone!
The Crescent was a great little hotel. The prices are WAY more affordable than anything else in Beverly Hills and so I wasn't sure what to expect. Very pleasantly surprised. Great place to grab a drink - we did it almost every night of our stay. Try the French Toast. The rooms are totally new. And the bed is comfortable. I'd definitely return.
Wow - Newly renovated
Stayed at this hotel a year ago prior to the renovation. It was nice, but needed some work. Stayed there last night. Wow!! Totally redone.
Rooms are great. New amenities. The best part is the new restaurant lounge. Indoor/outdoor patio has a really nice atmosphere. It's the best place to stay under $200 in Beverly Hills for sure.
Avoid this Hotel!
I travel alot, and made a reservation here after reviewing the website
... I like to find little-known places to stay. This place didn't meet
my expectations; the room was "tiny" ... maybe 10x10; the plumbing in
the bathrooms were visibly rusting & old; the breakfast wasn't ready @
6:30 as indicated (I had to wait 15 minutes); and to top it off, the
walls are noticably thin. I listed to a couple next door have *** for
hours ...! I do not recommend this hotel.
My aunt and I recently spent a week in Southern California, and we stayed in her favorite hotel, The Beverly Crescent in Beverly Hills, CA. Having never been to California, I was looking forward to a nice place to sleep after days of sightseeing, trips, and just bumming around. The Beverly Crescent is the most perfect little hotel I have stayed at in some time. Just 38 rooms on the quiet corner of Crescent and Brighton, just across from the Civic Center. For $119/night rack rate (my aunt doesn't know how to look for Internet bargains, but it is included in some of the cheap hotel sites; I asked around), you couldn't stay in a better location. A mere 3 blocks away from Rodeo drive and a block and a half from Santa Monica Blvd. (the bus stop for us!), the Beverly Crescent is superb. A very tasty Continental breakfast is served in the morning on the lush patio and the most attentive staff I have had the pleasure to deal with in ages made my stay something to write home about. The rooms are cozy, with one full bed and a twin bed (double) or just a full bed (single) and all have private baths. Cable TV is also included. The hotel is changing hands, which may help out with the superficial repairs that are needed (but these imperfections make it feel like home and not like a faceless chain.) I hope the Beverly Crescent will continue to provide visitors with superb service and excellent rates for years to come!
