LAX approach on a breezy, clear day

For my trip this week to Los Angeles I was looking for a new hotel to try out. I had heard about the Beverly Hilton before – but revenue rates were $350 as this was 'Oscars week'. But it's time to get rid of Hilton points before March 28th, so I redeemed 40,000 of them for a one night stay.

I'm sure you are aware this place has quite some history:

Conrad Hilton opened the Welton Becket designed Beverly Hilton Hotel as a showpiece in 1953 with 582 rooms.

Since 1961, the hotel's International Ballroom has hosted the Golden Globe Award ceremony, presented annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

On February 11 2012, singer Whitney Houston passed away in her bathtub in a room at the hotel.

Given that most 'classic' hotels are in a state of disrepair I kept my expectations low.

However I soon realized that the Beverly Hilton is one of the better hotels I have ever been! It shows some unique style in interior design and has friendly and competent staff. Check-in was super swift and friendly and while the front desk agent mentioned an upgrade I'm not sure what that would consist of. However the room was brand new and meticulously clean. I found it very similar to the Intercontinental Boston (probably my favorite US hotel), which has a similar style of brown colors. Carpets, bed, furniture all seemed in excellent shape. Finally a hotel room where my dust mite allergy has nothing to fear!

There were several networking events in the lobby – it was always teeming with 'Hollywood types'.

The pool area well kept up and you can see the effort the hotel makes to invest in its common areas.

I also really enjoyed the breakfast – while the buffet wasn't huge but offered some real high quality items (especially the cold cuts).

Lucky for me my favorite car rental was just next door:

So it's hard to fault the hotel at anything modern, airy rooms – great staff and a 'cool' vibe. Good food and a fantastic location in Beverly Hills. The Internet worked flawlessly as well. It does not get much better than that.
