The Beverly Hills Hotel, Los Angeles, USA
The impressive list of past guest at this iconic hotel built in 1912 include Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra - and it's still popular with Hollywood A-listers today. Nestled within 12 acres of tropical gardens (where its 23 very private bungalows are located), it is a beacon of luxury at every turn. With uplifting, bright décor predominantly using pinks and pale greens throughout the hotel, it has a swimming pool steeped in Hollywood legend, key eateries and bars where major film deals have been made, a gym and hair salon. Guest rooms are lavish, as you'd expect, and service is impeccable, so you'll never want for anything.
The hotel is located in large grounds so you can escape from the bustle of LA for a dose of peace and quiet.
Set just off Sunset Boulevard, the hotel is near the swanky shops and restaurants of Rodeo Drive and Melrose Avenue.
By plane: flights to Los Angeles from London take 11 hours. The hotel is a 40-minute drive from LAX airport. Parking costs $55 per day. skyscanner.net
