The BTH was home for a week - and better than my home! A review of Beverly Terrace Hotel
I stayed here a night in August, 1999, and enjoyed it enough to book a week (the discount for a week helped me decide that!) It's not first-class, but $100 a night ($575/week) (*1999 prices, remember) doesn't pay for first-class anywhere! While the name is somewhat leading (Beverly Terrace - it's literally on the outer edge of Beverly Hills), it's a nice little place, maybe 2 dozen rooms (but only parking for about 10 cars). Unheated pool in the centre of the odd-shaped building (the corner it's on is about 55degrees, not a regular square 90degrees), there's a restaurant connected with it (but I never got to eat there). A supermarket across the street is convenient, and as it's on the border of B.Hills and West Hollywood, it's walking distance from the wealth of Rodeo Drive to the west, and the style & oddities of Sunset Boulevard to the east. There's a sizable shopping mall & regular shopping area (not Gucci or Vuitton or Piercings&Pumps) south of the place, and it's easy to drive both out to the beach, or into the City, from here. Rooms are small, fixtures are a bit old, and if you're really coming here to spend time in your room, you can certainly do better. But where else can you stay "IN" Beverly Hills for this price?
