New Look: Beverly Hills Hotel Centenary Refit

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Beverly Hills – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The iconic Beverly Hills Hotel will mark its 100th year with a three-year restoration project led by Tihany Design. The project will take place in phased stages between now and 2015, to reduce inconvenience to guests.

The restoration will honor the original patina of The Beverly Hills Hotel, polishing its design elements and enhancing its residential feel. The hotel lobby, Polo Lounge, guest rooms and suites, and pool and cabanas will all be refurbished while respecting their original style. The hotel’s signature red-carpet entrance, C.W. Stockwell-designed banana leaf wallpaper, green and white stripes, and pink exterior will remain.

“The Beverly Hills Hotel will forever be a timeless fixture in the community,” said Edward A. Mady, regional director, West Coast, USA and general manager. “We look forward to implementing a restoration which will lovingly highlight the hotel’s ties to the spirit and history of Beverly Hills, and provide an effortlessly relaxed new California hotel experience in a one-of-a-kind, legendary setting.”

“Most importantly, we will take great care to maintain much of this beautiful building’s originality and landmark features while also staying internationally relevant with the next generation of luxury travelers.”

The lobby is due to be complete by July 2012, with new lighting, carpets and a banana leaf center medallion carved from limestone. The new Polo Lounge will be ready by winter and the pool cabanas and Cabana Café will be upgraded early next year.

All guest rooms in the hotel’s main building will be refreshed by early 2014, with 20 to 35 rooms undergoing restoration at any one time. The new rooms will feature wall mounted B&O TVs with integrated technology, illuminated mirrors with built-in TVs, and contemporary stainless steel fixtures in the bathrooms.

“The essence of The Beverly Hills Hotel is a sparkling cocktail of design, style and Hollywood glamour,” said Adam Tihany, project leader and Interior Design Hall of Famer. “I am enjoying every moment of polishing and updating this gem.”
