relaxen at the pool and stroll down Rodeo Drive in beverly hills
HELLO LA! Who grew up in the nineties just like me is most likely a bit nostalgic when I drop the name Beverly Hills. You most likely watched Beverly Hills 90210 on TV every week. At least I did! So when I could go to Los Angeles to create a city guide for British Airways I just HAD to stay there one night. The last time I was in LA was almost 20 years ago. And I can remember parts of it but I knew I wanted to go back to see it all again. The first night I arrived in Los Angeles we stayed at the luxury hotel Sofitel Beverly Hills. A modern hotel that feels way smaller than it truly is and where you feel that arty LA vibe in the lobby and communal area’s. The Sofitel Beverly Hills Los Angeles is located very central in the heart of the Beverly Hills district. There are several restaurants within walking distance and Rodeo Drive is just a short ride from the hotel.
LA sleepover at the Sofitel Beverly Hills
The Sofitel Beverly Hills Los Angeles is perfect on hot summer days (and trust me when I say it can be very warm in LA!) because it has a very nice pool and a huge rooftop patio. Perfect for relaxing at one of the lounge beds and to cool down in the pool. On the ground floor the Sofitel Beverly Hills Los Angeles has a nice and colourful patio which is perfect for drinks in the evening. They also host live jazz sessions in this garden. If the weather is not to warm it’s also nice to have your breakfast there!
If you want to stay in Los Angeles in Beverly Hills I can recommend the Sofitel Beverly Hills. I’m sure you will have a great time just like us!
Tip: across the street from the hotel there’s a huge shopping mall. And my favourite restaurants close to the hotel are Terrine, Animal and Son of a Gun!
