Beverly Hills Hotel to Debut New Presidential Bungalows

The Beverly Hills Hotel is set to open two ultra-luxe "Presidential Bungalows" in early June 2011 and they are now available for booking.

The ultimate in accommodation at the Dorchester Collection's "Pink Palace," the new Presidential Bungalows are carefully nestled within 12 lush, landscaped acres of banana leaves, palm trees and perfectly manicured gardens. They are the some of the largest suites in Los Angeles with nearly 5,000 square feet of living space indoors and out.
 
The first additions to the landmark hotel grounds since renowned architect Paul Williams added the Crescent Wing over half a century ago, the Presidential Bungalows are the work of Rottet Studio of Los Angeles.

The firm drew inspiration from the hotel's sought-after original Bungalows, casting a modern eye on traditional design to create a "new Beverly Hills experience" that updates the historic Mediterranean character of the hotel and its grounds. The Bungalows resemble individual homes set in the iconic residential neighborhood of Beverly Hills, with indoor living opening to the outdoors while assuring absolute privacy.
 
Each Presidential Bungalow features classic pink stucco with its own private entrance; a Great Room with dining room and chic-ly furnished living room; a professional kitchen; custom-designed furnishings as well as vintage pieces from the 1920s; three bedrooms with large baths featuring free-standing tubs, steam showers and vanities; and, in the Hollywood tradition, a limestone fireplace - five per Bungalow - in every room.

Gardens surround each Bungalow with a private pool, fireplace, dining area with nighttime illumination, entertainment systems, exercise areas, courtyards, and private outdoor showers.
