With the introduction of the first new guestrooms and suites at The Beverly Hills Hotel, the last phase of the hotel-wide restoration program led by Adam D. Tihany is now underway at the landmark hotel. Completed accommodations feature new palettes and integrated technology. All guestrooms and suites are expected to be refreshed by the end of 2014, with 20 to 35 rooms slated to undergo restoration at any one time.
The new features and amenities showcased have been designed create a more modern atmosphere while keeping a residential feel. The palette includes leathers, mohair and silks in cream and taupe shades with silvery blue, green and yellow accents. Ebonized walnut and cerused oak furnishings complement the color scheme. Bespoke wall coverings and light fixtures, custom artwork in all suites, and lounge seating are also included in the new spaces.
Guests will also have access to enhanced technology, including integrated media panels and specialty lighting systems with individual dimming capabilities and a variety of "set scenes" to choose from. All guestrooms and suites have wall mounted Bang and Olufsen TVs, while charging packs with USB connectors are located in each desk. Bathrooms include updated Watermark fixtures in a chrome finish, and bathroom mirrors with built-in TVs.
The restoration hones and honors the original patina of The Beverly Hills Hotel, restoring and polishing the property’s design elements and reflecting Southern California's lifestyle. Project work was conducted in various phases. The hotel lobby, Polo Lounge and pool, cabanas and Cabana Cafe have all been enhanced, and attention was paid to respect the hotel's original style. The signature red-carpet entrance, C.W. Stockwell-designed banana leaf wallpaper, green and white stripes, and pink exterior remain constants.
