It is difficult to choose between this, Hotel Bel Air and Chateau Marmont, but, as The Beverly Hills Hotel is the "Hotel California", you could say this is the classic LA hotel. It is so iconic, luxurious and tasteful that even seeing the entrance and lobby would take your breath away (unless you're a spoilt twat). The rooms, the Polo Lounge, the pool area, everything is perfect and priced accordingly. Indisputably one of the finest hotels in all of the world and a destination establishment that would justify travelling to LA and never leaving (as the song goes).
