2014 is a big year for Beverly Hills – its 100th, to be exact. To celebrate the centennial anniversary, five of the city’s top hotels – the Montage, the Peninsula, L’Ermitage, Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows and the Beverly Hilton – have participated in Suite 100, a campaign which pays homage to Los Angeles’ most elegant city through the redecoration of one room apiece. You’ll truly feel like you’ve traveled back in time when you book any of these in-suite stays, which are available now through December 30, 2014. Pricing starts at $1,914, which represents the year Beverly Hills was founded. Luckily there’s no need for a Back to the Future-style DeLorean; you’ll simply need a present-day luxury car to experience vintage 90210.

“The Era of Studio 54 – Fashion & Art Collide”
If you feel like taking a blast to the past that will land you smack dab in the midst of Andy Warhol’s Factory, book your stay at L’Ermitage Beverly Hills. This suite celebrates the Studio 54 era of the mid-1970s where disco, Halston, bell-bottoms and mini-skirts reigned supreme. Designer Ken Fulk’s tribute to the era pays homage to paparazzi with an iPad photo booth and to Warhol with its foil-lined walls. High-gloss lacquer and mirror finishes, orchids and vintage fashions in the closet evoke Halston, as does the use of Ultrasuede, the aforementioned fashion designer’s favorite fabric. Other period references include a powder room papered in Interview Magazine covers and a “Do Not Disturb” sign that riffs on Warhol’s iconic silk-screen portraits.

“The Golden Age: Inspired by Marilyn Monroe”
Tihany Design drew inspiration for The Pink Palace’s Suite 100 selection from the understated-elegance of Paul Williams, the celebrated architect who designed the hotel’s Polo Lounge, signage and iconic pink-and-green color scheme. The company also drew upon the glamorous lifestyle of Marilyn Monroe, a frequent hotel guest. Gracefully curved furnishings in rich hues of green and blue complement the existing architectural details of the suite’s curved ceilings and walls but still remains quintessentially Californian with decorative touches like black lacquer finishes, tropical prints, shag carpets and a bar made of rich sycamore wood. A display case showcases original artifacts from Marilyn Monroe’s estate, a library of her most popular books and films and song selections from the 1950s. For an additional fee, guests can live like Marilyn at her peak with the “Norma Jean Experience,” which includes a selection of Marilyn Monroe-themed gifts, a bottle of Chanel No. 5, round-trip airport transfers in a vintage car, a bottle of Dom Perignon, Marilyn’s Menu for Two featuring her favorite room-service dishes, two 90-minute Diamond Perfection body treatments in the hotel’s La Prairie Spa, breakfast for two, “The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows – The First 100 Years” Anniversary Book, and a commemorative Marilyn Monroe Coffee Table Book.

“Stylish, Sophisticated Sixties: A Re-Imagined Revolution”
When you think of chic, sleek 1960s-era films, you should think of Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair or Tipi Hedren in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. If you’re a fan of either film, you’ll adore the sophisticated yet dangerous beauty of the Beverly Hilton’s newly redesigned suite. Tom Ford Design has created a room that evokes the best of the era: the bold colors of famed interior designer David Hicks, the elegance of Audrey Hepburn and the sultry stylings of Brazilian singer-songwriter Gilberto Gil. Expect to see a mixture of vintage and modern furnishings in the Hollywood-Regency style as well as a collection of ‘60s-era Barbie dolls for an extra touch of period-appropriate kitsch.

“The Birth of Modern Luxury”
If you want to live like a celebrity for a day or two, the suite at the Peninsula is the place for you. As created by design firm Forchielli Glynn, the Peninsula becomes a hot spot for true Hollywood glamour.

The suite’s living room walls are clad in photographic murals of red carpet Hollywood gala events, while its sumptuous sofas create the perfect setting for sipping Champagne. Its bedroom features mirrored walls accented with silvery finishes, ideal for couples getting dressed in their finest for a night out on the town. The one night Suite 100 package stay includes the use of a private pool cabana for the day with lunch for two, a Scrub & Spray Tan treatment for two at The Peninsula Spa, as well as transportation within Beverly Hills and Century City in a luxury vehicle.
