Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, USA
This hotel opened in 2017 in the leafy Beverly Hills neighbourhood after around a decade of planning and with a reputed $200m budget. The results are suitably opulent: you sweep up the short drive into a grand lobby with soothing light jazz playing and immediately feel relaxed among the comfortable seating areas in beige and pale green, as well as an open fire under a magnificent chandelier. It has an old Hollywood feel despite its young age. Guest rooms are as luxurious as the public areas, with wall-to-ceiling windows showing off the spectacular views of the Hollywood and Beverly Hills. There's a choice of attractive restaurant/bar spaces, a top notch spa, 24-hour fitness centre and rooftop pool to complete what is a great ensemble.
You'll love the great views of the Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and Downtown LA.
The hotel is less than 10 minutes' drive from Rodeo Drive and the Sunset Strip.
By plane: flights to Los Angeles from London take 11 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from LAX airport. Parking costs $68 per day. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
The older, more dated style is reminiscent of the 1950s and suggests an older clientele, but there are a lot of younger guests around too. There's a pleasing Modern Art Deco theme throughout the hotel.
Service & Facilities
We love the heated pool on the large rooftop lounge deck, in a landscaped garden setting, and its panoramic views of the city. The lift talks to you; she apologises if the ride is taking too long, and thanks you for waiting.

Room 815 is one of the smallest, but has a big balcony looking out onto the Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and the Hollywood sign. The artworks adorning both guest rooms and public areas are clearly well chosen and carefully considered.
