The Peninsula Beverly Hills completes year-long renovation

The Peninsula Beverly Hills has announced the completion of an extensive renovation of its 193 guestrooms, suites and villas.

The new look is said to “celebrate color and enhances the connection between the sunshine-filled interiors and surrounding tropical gardens, yet retains the hotel’s original aesthetic.”

The Beverly Hills-based interior design firm of Forchielli Glynn LLC oversaw the year-long property enhancement. While selecting custom-made furnishings, carpeting and case goods for the new interior design, Forchielli Glynn tapped local artisans as needed, including Paul Ferrante for crystal chandeliers, Mario Grimaldi for hand-crafted tables, and artist Hampton Hall for Chinoiserie wall panels and line drawings.

The hotel’s four largest suites were among the last guest accommodations to be completed, each with its own distinct signature color palette and style. Three of the four suites were designed by Forchielli Glynn. The fourth was designed by American interior design icon Nancy Corzine, who is also Los Angeles-based, and is known for her contemporary luxe style and signature line of furnishings, textiles and lighting designs. All four of these guest accommodations feature fireplaces, advanced flat-screen TV and audio systems, and are accessorized with a collection of books and objets, as if part of the guest’s personal collection. The suites also feature contemporary kitchens outfitted with the latest Viking and Sub-Zero appliances.

The hotel’s 209 square meter (2,250 square foot) Presidential suite offers views of the city and hills beyond and exudes an “East-meets-West” ambiance. Walls are upholstered in soft greens, providing a backdrop for framed antique Asian textiles, Chinese blue and white porcelain and a grand piano. The principal seating area faces a carved-wood fireplace and features a hand-knotted Savonnerie area rug. In the dining room, where the mahogany table seats 10, hand-painted Chinoiserie-style murals depict an intricate pattern of foliage, birds and flowers, evocative of the hotel’s garden setting. A Chinoiserie-style screen is the focal point of the master bedroom, which features a hand-painted four-poster bed and a seating area.


The Royal Patio Suite, also 209 square meters (2,250 square feet), features cream-toned backgrounds and upholstery accented with gilded and hand-painted finishes. White linen drapery frames views of the terrace, the hotel gardens and the Century City skyline. The room features several seating areas, contemporary artwork and a dining table that expands to seat eight beneath a crystal chandelier. French doors lead to the private terrace, which, at 41.8 square meters (450 square feet) in size, is ideal for al fresco entertaining.

Hues of deep rose, accented by Dior gray, distinguish the 139.4 square meter (1,500 square foot) Grand Deluxe Suite. The pink palette is contrasted by white wainscoting, gold- and silver-leaf accents, contemporary framed drawings and hand-knotted area rugs. A combination of modern and traditional furnishings showcases Macassar ebony and Zebrawood veneers that are a striking counterpoint to the Swedish-style lounge chairs. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed cocooned in a curved upholstered panel with a mirror above, which wraps around the head of the bed and the night tables.

The interior of this 139.4 square meter (1,500 square foot) garden-facing suite was designed by Nancy Corzine, who furnished it with her signature line of furniture, textiles, and lighting designs. The ice blue palette is accented with Venetian silver, cream and white. Chairs and sofas are in pale blue linen-velvet with Greek key trim. End tables feature hand-blown Murano glass lamps with pale blue silk lampshades. The master bedroom is also done in shades of pale blue and white, with mirrored nightstands and polished-nickel wall sconces. At the foot of the master bed is a Venetian silver bench upholstered in tufted blue linen-velvet.

The new specialty suites are the latest enhancement at The Peninsula Beverly Hills, which continues to elevate the guest experience with services such as a personal airport concierge, 24-hour check-in, luggage storage and in-room check-in.
