Hotel Bel-Air Los Angeles, California, USA

By Lauren Jade Hill

A Hollywood icon since 1946, Hotel Bel-Air is an oasis in the busy, loud town. Twelve acres of landscaped gardens in the Los Angeles canyons make the property feel more like a secluded resort than a city hotel and create a sense of absolute privacy (perhaps why it is so beloved by A-listers — both Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe practically lived there). The low buildings wind through lush grounds that include not only the property’s Swan Lake but also its famous oval pool, which is essentially a Hollywood institution in its own right. The Presidential Suite feels like a private residence and has been called a home away from home by legions of Oscar winners. If you call it yours for the night, you’ll find private gardens with an infinity pool and a great room with piano and fireplace.

Presidential Suite from $15,000 per night. Contact Tavi Smith, reservations manager,, +1 310 887 2458,
