44. The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows, Los Angeles, USA
Ranked #44 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
Brazenly, gorgeously pink, recently ‘refreshed’ and right on Sunset Boulevard – you can’t get more Hollywood than this. Rooms, suites and bungalows are lovely but it’s all see and be seen here.
Take a stool at the curvy soda fountain counter for coffee, or pop on your sunnies and head to the poolside Cabana Café for a Teeny Bikini Pizza and a Skinny Margarita.
Then off to the legendary Polo Lounge – after dusk it’s all cocktails, jazz and star-spotting. At the palm-fringed pool, there are complimentary refreshments throughout the day – Mojito pops, sunglass cleaning, a spritz of Evian. There may be younger hotels but the Beverly Hills is old-school and very cool.
Size 208 rooms and suites
