Welcoming the Waldorf Astoria to L.A.

One of the most anticipated openings in Los Angeles recently was the new Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Beverly Hills. The 12-story, 170 room hotel opened its doors earlier month and by the looks of it I am sure it will attract a crowd of “who’s-who’s” in the Hollywood circles. waldorf_astoria_exterior_Beverly HillsThe hotel and grounds were designed by the renowned architectural firm Gensler (a firm I wanted to work at when I was an aspiring architect) along with the studio of French designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, who has revamped various iconic hotels including the Four Seasons George V in Paris and the Savoy Hotel in London. The interiors are influenced by the Art Deco/Streamline Moderne style appropriate for the Beverly Hill’s location. It’s all about the glamour, baby!

Jean-Georges has restaurants all over the globe but this is his first venture in Los Angeles.

A gold glass chandelier hangs over a staircase in the spa. The hotel is the new home to the Spa by La Prairie, a luxury skin care brand. I have been curious about the La Prairie line and just ordered their product to try. The new spa will give me a fabulous excuse to make a reservation for some pampering while visiting the new hotel. Two birds, one stone….waldorf astoria beverly hills artwork Reviving CharmLa Prairie has six treatment rooms and spa “experience showers” for men and women. The spa is ultra chic and modern designed in classic black and white. aldorf Astoria / Beverly Hills spaWaldorf Astoria Beverly Hills / Photographed for THR MagazineThe rooftop pool offers beautiful views of Beverly Hills.

The Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is a beautiful property dubbed the “soon-to-be-iconic” hotel. I can certainly see why. Once I make my way to the Waldorf Astoria and pay a visit to the La Prairie spa I will be sure to share my experience with photos of my own.

    My motto in life is “why leave the comforts of home for anything less than what I’m leaving behind?” And this hotel would give me every reason to pack my bags. Beautiful! And that spa!!
