With palm-tree-lined boulevards and designer shops, Beverly Hills is a haven for movie stars and Los Angeles’ glitterati. Luxury hotels tap into the glamour of this iconic neighborhood, offering accommodations that mirror the enviable lifestyles of the rich and famous. Historic hotels put you in the same rooms that icons like Marilyn Monroe once occupied, while show-stopping suites offer the best amenities and views for LA vacations. Whether you’re looking for a pet-friendly hotel worthy of Paris Hilton and her pup, or you're eager to walk in the footsteps of Vivian from Pretty Woman — the following six Beverly Hills hotels embody elegance, refinement and luxury worth the splurge.

The Beverly Hills Hotel

The Beverly Hills Hotel opened in 1912. By the 1930s, this historic California resort became the place for the city’s starlets and powerhouses to convene, often at the Sand and Pool Club, where they imported actual sand to make the swimming pool feel like a beach. Every celebrity you can imagine has stayed at the Beverly Hills Hotel — from Marilyn Monroe to Frank Sinatra — and for a good reason, as this is a place to see and be seen. Today, the five-star Beverly Hills Hotel upholds its luxury status with impeccably designed guest rooms, suites and private bungalows. For a true splurge, book one of the bungalows Marilyn Monroe preferred to book during her stays. The Garden Bungalow sits on 12 acres of lush tropical gardens, providing the utmost privacy from those pesky paparazzi. Marble bathrooms boast huge tubs and double washbins, while the large bedrooms sport huge beds swaddled in buttery cotton linens. When you’re not practicing your Oscar-winning speech in front of the mirror, head to the iconic Polo Lounge (where Hollywood’s movers and shakers imbibe in cocktails) or to the wonderfully retro outdoor swimming pool.

Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills

From its prime location to its award-winning cuisine, the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is a five-star hotel straddling Santa Monica and Wilshire Boulevards. Oversized guest rooms and suites offer stellar views of Hollywood, with private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. For a room worthy of an A-List movie star, look no further than the Villa Suite, which comes with a large open-air terrace. Each suite offers a king-size bedroom, private dining area, free wifi, walk-in closets, powder rooms and BlueTooth-enabled speakers in the bathroom. But let’s go back to that terrace, a stunning outdoor area with 360-degree views of the Hollywood Hills and Los Angeles and creamy white loungers scattered thoughtfully throughout the space. While it may be tempting to order room service to your terrace, don’t skip on dinner reservations at the celebrated Jean-Georges Beverly Hills restaurant headed by Renowned Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

This five-star luxury hotel sits a stone’s throw from the uber-trendy Rodeo Drive. L'Ermitage Beverly Hills is an all-suite hotel that has racked up a myriad of awards and accolades for its unparalleled hospitality. Whether you check in to a classic suite or splurge on the coveted L’Ermitage suite, rest assured knowing that you’re in for a luxurious stay. Expect spacious accommodations with private terraces or balconies offering skyline views draped in that Californian sunshine. Onyx marble bathrooms and large bedrooms provide the utmost comfort, as do the thoughtful amenities, including a Nespresso machine and a fully stocked mini-bar. For a true splurge, I’d book that uber-luxurious L’Ermitage Suite, which comes with a private massage room, large dining room, full-service kitchen and private chef, private theater and screening room, fireplace, powder room and private office equipped with free wifi. This Beverly Hills hotel is also pet-friendly and goes the extra mile to ensure your furry friend is well cared for. Fido is welcomed with a pet bed, doggy bowl and other pet amenities, while the concierge can recommend pet-friendly restaurants and shops in Beverly Hills.

The Maybourne Beverly Hills

Arguably one of the best hotels in Beverly Hills, The Maybourne is a true stunner. Contemporary rooms are elegantly designed with a creamy color palette and plenty of natural lighting. The Signature Suites are the true showstoppers, with private furnished terraces overlooking the Hollywood Hills. If I had to pick, I’d book the Presidential Suite, designed for entertaining and replete with a baby grand piano, marbled dining room table and a massive balcony. While the suites have everything you could ever want, don’t skip on a visit to the rooftop pool. Considered one of the most beautiful swimming pools in Los Angeles, here you can relax poolside in private cabanas while sipping a crisp pink rosé. Afterward, head to The Terrace, which overlooks the lawns of Beverly Canon Gardens and takes inspiration from European piazzas. Farm fresh ingredients are whipped into delectable menus, from housemade pasta to dishes celebrating the bounty of California produce. In between bites of your meal, take a peek at the Picasso-inspired mural adorning the walls, painted by a Los Angeles-based artist.

The Peninsula Beverly Hills

A short walk from Rodeo Drive and Century City is the renowned Peninsula Beverly Hills, a five-star luxury hotel serving up timeless elegance. Guest rooms range from rooms to suites to villas, each offering ample space and airy accommodations draped in Californian sunshine. If traveling with family or a group of friends, you can’t go wrong with booking The Peninsula Villa, a two-story residence that feels more like a private home than a hotel. A grand foyer welcomes guests into the space, while a sweeping staircase leads upstairs to bedrooms that can accommodate up to six guests. While the villa comes with all top-of-the-line amenities, it’s the private patio and jacuzzi that are the real draw. Outside your villa, the rest of the hotel is just as fabulous, boasting a state-of-the-art fitness center, rooftop pool and a spa voted one of the best hotel spas in the world. On-site dining options are just as decadent, with a rooftop garden serving contemporary Californian fusion cuisine, The Living Room offering afternoon tea service and the highly-acclaimed Belvedere Restaurant helmed by the Michelin-starred Chef Ralf Schlegel.

Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel

Chances are you already know about Beverly Wilshire from the iconic film Pretty Woman. It’s here that Richard Gere’s character takes Julia Roberts far from the crowds of Sunset Boulevard and back to his penthouse suite, introducing her to a glittering world of wealth and privilege. The Beverly Wilshire leans into this silver screen connection by offering guests the “Pretty Woman For a Day” Package, a VIP experience well worth the splurge. With the Pretty Woman package, you’ll stay at one of the hotel’s most luxurious suites and enjoy a myriad of exclusive experiences, including a behind-the-scenes tour of Rodeo Drive, an exclusive dinner at The Blvd Restaurant and a couples massage at the award-winning on-site spa. When you’re done living out your Pretty Woman fantasies, head to the Mediterranean-style outdoor pool where you can book a private cabana.
