SLS Beverly Hills completes $22M redesign

The SLS Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., completed a redesign ahead of the property’s 10th anniversary this November.

The renovation included all 234 guestrooms and 63 suites, redesigned by Dakota Development, Muzeo and Avenue Interior Design. The rooms now have a lighter palette, the latest in technology and modern comforts. The signature oversized mirror panels and whimsical accents remain, though now juxtaposed with white oak, Carrara marble and neutral fabrics that add to the room’s overall lighter and brighter look.

The accommodations also have new carpet, oversized abstract prints, mirror-lined walls, and handmade needlepoint pillows with classic Picasso prints that mirror the chalk drawings found in The Bazaar, the work of a Los Angeles chalk artist commissioned for the restaurant’s 2009 opening. Illustrations can be found inside the new armoires, depicting the monkey, the SLS spirit animal, causing havoc among antique perfume bottles. A custom-made vintage map of Los Angeles is embedded on top of the media center.

The renovation also includes the addition of two new suite categories: the Style Suite and the Storyseeker Suite, both with private bedroom and living areas. The 1,900 square-foot Presidential Suite has four separate rooms including a bedroom with an oversized closet, powder room, soaking tub and experience rain shower; a study filled with a collection of L.A.-centric art and culture books; a dining room with a bespoke chandelier and cherry-oak dining table; and a living room connected to a kitchen.

Throughout all accommodations, additional features include USB ports and outlets, Wi-Fi routers in every room, and 55-inch high definition SMART TVs, as well as an updated bathroom with rainfall shower or oversized soaking tub, and enhanced ambient lighting. Custom-made light boxes illuminate the hallways.

The SLS Beverly Hills recently debuted the Somni, a 10-seat chef’s counter. The exhibition kitchen space, designed without any corners, mimics the hotel’s overall aesthetic, incorporating light oak and marble accented with multi-colored animal bust sculptures by Pop Surrealist artist Okuda San Miguel.

The property also revamped its Garden Terrace events space.
