Hotel Bel Air Gets a Makeover

When the extraordinary becomes ordinary, it becomes time to break new ground. The Hotel Bel-Air has just outdone itself with exquisite revamping, taking Old Hollywood elegance and catapulting it into the 21st century, without even the slightest tinge of modern pretentiousness. Not that one would expect anything less of a hotel that has garnered awards such as being named “#1 in the U.S” by Travel and Leisure Magazine, and “#1 Boutique Hotel in the U.S.” by Departures Magazine. It has also achieved a five-star rating by Mobil more times that any other hotel in the state of California; which is not an easy feat to accomplish! When you consider those accolades, and all of the fabulous perks, this gem of a desert oasis will forever be embedded in your mind as one of the finest places to stay in all of Los Angeles.

Originally built in 1946, the architecture speaks directly of the Spanish mission style. The hotel now offers 103 different rooms, 12 of which were just built. Set directly into the hill, they give the most incredible views of the canyon. The renovated design is the work of Alexandra Champalimaud, one of the world’s best interior designers who specializes in the hospitality industry.

There is no end to the luxury, as the entire property is laden with details such as spacious bathrooms that have heated tile floors, private pools, and beautiful outdoor fireplaces. Resting atop the entire building is new bell tower.

As for dining, whether you stay here or not, the culinary experience will certainly add to the grandeur of the experience. Looking to outdo all competition, Wolfgang Puck is not the executive chef of the establishment, lending his vast knowledge, and serving up the finest California cuisine the state can offer. The restaurant is known as “Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air will open it’s doors to the public on November 1.

Located in one of the most fashionable cities, LA, Hotel Bel-Air knows how to take care of all of your beauty needs. The experience of the spa is not to be missed under any circumstances of your visit. Done by the luxurious Swiss company, La Prairie, you will experience treatments like none other.

Consider it the updating of a classic, with decadent styling and a boatload of glamour. If Los Angeles is going to be your destination anytime in the near future, this is one hotel not to miss.
