Five of Beverly Hills’ most luxurious hotels have redecorated one hotel room each in honor of the city’s upcoming centennial celebration.
The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows, Montage Beverly Hills, The Beverly Hilton, L’Ermitage Beverly Hills and The Peninsula Beverly Hills are participating in Suite 100, a hospitality promotion created by the Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau.
The intent of the Suite 100 program is to transport guests who stay in the room back to moments in time from the past 100 years.
The Montage’s theme is “Film Noir”. As designed by Nina Petronzio, the suite will feature bespoke art-deco inspired furniture, gold and silver leaf and mirrored finishes. Accessories will include a collection of Lalique crystal and art works from the period, as well as fun touches such as a vintage phonograph and vinyl records. A 1940s Indian Motorcycle will be an added touch to the terrace.
The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows’ theme is “The Golden Age Inspired by Marilyn Monroe.” Tihany Design drew inspiration from the stylings of Paul Williams, the architect who created the Pink Palace’s Polo Lounge, pink-and-green color scheme, and aesthetic of frequent guest Monroe. The design will feature black lacquer finishes, tropical prints, shag carpets and a bar made of sycamore wood; the color scheme is blue and green.
The Beverly Hilton will take on the swinging sixties with their suite. Tipi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” and Brazilian singer Gilberto Gil were the inspirations for Tom Ford Design‘s use of bold color and mixture of antique and modern furnishings.
L’Ermitage Beverly Hills pays hommage to Studio 54, disco, Andy Warhol and Halston with their 1970’s themed room. Designer Ken Fulk will create a foil-lined room with high-gloss lacquer and mirror finishes, orchids and vintage fashions in the closet. Other period references will include a powder room papered in Interview Magazine covers and a “Do Not Disturb” sign that is a play on Warhol’s silk-screen portraits.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills’ theme is “The Birth of Modern Glamour”. Design firm Forchielli Glynn will transform a suite into the embodiment of modern Hollywood glamour with the 2009 coffee table book “Room 23” as inspiration. The book features more than 100 celebrity photos taken in a Peninsula suite – from Cindy Crawford and George Clooney to Kid Rock – in a fun way as to highlight what haute Hollywood VIPs do behind closed doors. The living room walls will be clad in photographic murals of a red carpet Hollywood gala event.
Suite 100 rooms begin at $1,914 as a tribute to 1914, the year that the City of Beverly Hills was incorporated. Guests may begin booking stays in Suite 100s on January 28, 2014, the city’s centennial day, for stays between March 7 and December 31, 2014.
