The Peninsula Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, USA
It's clear the staff here all go the extra mile, considering the high standards maintained in every aspect of this discreetly-positioned Beverly Hills hotel. Located near Rodeo drive and other high-end shopping destinations, it has spacious, luxurious guest rooms and attractive features that include a rooftop pool with private cabanas, four bar and restaurant areas offering the highest levels of cuisine, and an impressive spa and gym. It's located in beautiful garden grounds that provide ample privacy, has a business centre and even has free use of a chauffeured Rolls Royce.
We love how the hotel is in the thick of everything yet discreetly tucked away from the bustle - celebrities love it.
The hotel is in Beverly Hills, just 20 minutes by car to Hollywood or Santa Monica.
By plane: flights to Los Angeles from London take 11 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from LAX airport. Parking costs $60 per day. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
Around half the guests are international, and it has a nice mix of families and ages. We love that the hotel is shaped like a 'Z', which means that there are great views from all the rooms.
Service & Facilities
Check-in/out is amazingly flexible, and is called 'Peninsular time'. Most days instead of a rigid 'check-in at 3pm, out at noon' you can check-in as early as 6am on arrival and check out as late as 10pm on the departure date, at no extra charge.
