Residence Inn Beverly Hills goes upscale through interior renovation project

Renovations to the interior of Residence Inn Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, CA have transformed the property into a semi-luxury hotel, reflecting its surrounding, higher-end communities.

Working with Sunstone Hotel Investors, Baskervill, a full-service architectural design firm in Richmond, VA, completed the project on time in January 2011. This interior project incorporated the inn’s 186 guest rooms, guest corridors, lobby, and 6,500 square feet of public spaces.

Baskervill’s scope included interior architecture, interior design, and furniture, plus furnishings and equipment (FF&E). Using the approved Residence Inn brand guidelines as a baseline, along with incorporating their Gatehouse design, the firm additionally took cues from the higher end communities in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The style of this area in California also played a factor in the selection of local artwork for Residence Inn Beverly Hills. 

From a designer’s perspective, Patricia Lopez, Baskervill’s interior designer, stated the project was exciting to work on due to the higher-end fabrics and finishes that were chosen to match the glamorous style known to Beverly Hills. “You definitely know you’re in Hollywood when you enter the hotel, and that was one of the owner’s goals with the renovation,” said Lopez.
