Stay: Montage Beverly Hills
This luxurious hotel greets guests with Champagne, which is sure to set the tone of your getaway. Its central location is a major plus, especially when you can request a free ride (for up to two miles) in the resort-owned Rolls Royce. That being said, the many amenities will make it hard to leave. The on-site restaurants serve delicious food (try celeb nutritionist Kelly Leveque's new menu at the Rooftop Grill) and the rooftop pool is an ideal spot to lounge. While every room is beautiful, we recommend booking one with a balcony for a picture-perfect view of the hills.
Stay: The Beverly Hills Hotel
Its storied history—full of legendary guests including Marilyn Monroe—helps this well-known Beverly Hills stay exude Old-Hollywood glamour. Meanwhile, its pink façade and palm-print wallpaper make for Instagram gold. The hotel's signature red carpet will make you feel like a movie star as soon as you arrive, and if you book one of the famous bungalows, you'll live like one, too.
Stay: The Peninsula Beverly Hills
The Peninsula Beverly Hills is a classic, quiet option boasting unbeatable five-star service. If you can swing it, arrange to take part in one of the hotel's red carpet-inspired photo shoots. From the comfort of your room, you'll sip on Champagne and snack on chocolate-covered strawberries as a Hollywood stylist dolls you up for the camera. The glam session includes getting your makeup done, putting on real pearls and diamonds, and slipping into a rented evening gown. Then, a professional photographer will snap celebrity-style portraits of you and your girls.
Stay: Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (a Four Seasons Hotel)
You may recognize this this hotel from its appearance in Pretty Woman. It's also known for accommodating Elvis Presley, among other big-name stars. World-class shopping is just steps away, and the spot's interior—from its mega chandelier to its elegant guest rooms—is simply dazzling.
Stay: Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills
Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills is a favorite of celebrities looking for a private (but luxe) retreat. Fun fact: Many have stayed here while recovering from plastic surgery! Visit if you want easy access to Beverly Hills' main attractions but prefer returning to someplace more peaceful afterward. We love the relaxing rooftop pool, so make sure to reserve a private cabana for your crew.
Get Pampered: Spa Montage Beverly Hills

Get Pampered: The Peninsula Spa Beverly Hills

Get Pampered: Nail Bar at The Spa at Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel)
