Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

The hotel

Living the high life in more ways than one, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is every bit the VIP pad – especially when you’re up on the exclusive rooftop pool deck, soaking in the 360 degree views as you slink from your private cabana into the glimmering pool for a dip. With its balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows, your guestroom delivers its own jaw-dropping views of the Boulevard, hills, or LA skyline. And the views inside are just as dazzling, whether you’re eying up the sparkling cocktails at its French-inspired Lobby Lounge; the glamour of La Prairie Spa; the fine dining masterpieces of its French-American restaurant (under the helm of celebrated chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten); or the beautiful coastal Californian interiors by creative genius Pierre-Yves Rochon – who’s used muted greens and golds and delicate woods and whites to create an art deco garden vibe.

I stayed here Wednesday June 12-Thursday June 13. I had an excellent stay. They are very proud of their Forbes 5* status (all employees wear the Forbes 5* pin) and work hard to maintain it. There were a few kinks that might be improved. 1. The property & entrance is stunning and more impressive than the photographs. 2. Standing check-in with a line. Most Forbes 5* properties that I've visited have a seated check-in and do not have a line. Victoria was very helpful at check-in. 3. Parking was $70/night. That is insanely expensive. But since this is a high-end property, I guess it's expected. I wish the cost of parking was clearly labeled at booking. 4. Aesop toiletries in the hotel rooms cost $50/bottle to take home. I wish the hotel clearly labeled this in the bathroom. I can see many customers wrongly assuming they're free to take home, as in many other hotels. 5. My room was excellent and spacious. Great view from Balcony. Dyson hair dryer in the bathroom. 6. Bijan store downstairs (where you don't need appointment) was kind of cool. 7. Dinner at Espelette had disappointing food (7/10), but excellent service. They should really rebrand the restaurant! 8. Breakfast at Espelette was good (8/10), but it's usually better at Forbes 5* hotels. 9. Rooftop pool area had cold plunge and sauna. Only problem was the sauna reaches a max temp of 167 degrees, not hot enough!!! 10. Excellent La Prairie spa (Forbes 5* spa) where guests can use the steam room, shower experience, and relaxation areas. 11. Two house cars, Rolls Royce Phantom and Escalade. Excellent hotel & service. You feel like a celebrity. Very expensive (don't come here to save money). Some kinks mentioned above. Read less

This may be the best hotel we have ever stayed at. We used two of our free Amex hotel room coupons to book the most expensive hotel we could find within 200 miles. We are also Hilton Diamond members, so we got a upgrade to a higher floor room with a nice view overlooking Beverly Hills. The check-in process was seamless, since we used our iphone as our digital key. It worked well for our stay. Since we were on a higher floor, we also needed to use our digital key to punch in our room floor when we got in the elevator. It worked ok but it was difficult as first since we weren't aware we needed to use it because of security reasons. The room was a 2br queen on the 9th floor. It was very spacious with a nice terrace and two comfortable chairs. Since it was overcast for the entirety of our stay, we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked. Hilton spared no expense in the construction of this hotel. Everything was in the room was top notch quality, including all of the doors. The bathroom was large with a separate bathtub and shower, and a separate toilet with its own door. It had top notch toiletries. The shower had very nice water pressure although it took a bit of time to figure out how to use the two shower controls. The closet is walk-in, also spacious, and with a safe. This is a high tech hotel. You can use voice comands via Alexa to control the lights and curtains and the tablet device to contact reception, housekeeping or your own personal concierge. The parking is valet and you use text messaging to fetch your car when you need it. The televison was also first class with a simple to use menu. We ate at both restaurants and each of them were excellent although with a somewhat limited menu. The top floor restaurant was a people watching experience, with nice views of downtown and the surrounding area. Our server, named Harmony was super friendly and helpful and walked us through our menu options that were suitable for sharing. We had a nice glass of California sparkling wine. The top floor restaurant had a stunning wall with a variety of fresh plants. When we got back to our room, our beds were turned down, with complimentary slippers on the floor, chocolates on our night stand, and soft music playing on the television. We had a nice breakfast at the downstairs restaurant, and there is also a Starbucks across the street if you want a change of pace. The hotel staff was friendly, as befitting a high-end hotel. We had a great two night stay Read less

Walking distance to Rodeo Drive. There is a house car service which we did not use. The gentleman at the door has the best smile in the business. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. The service we received from each and every staff member was outstanding. Read less

Awful, start to finish. We had reservation for Mother's Day Tea. They didn't have our reservation and made no attempt to suggest another time. They sent us to the main dining room, which was empty, and the menu was ultra-expensive coffee shop eggs (one person got the chicken and said it was good). The toast order was wrong.

Awful, start to finish. We had reservation for Mother's Day Tea. They didn't have our reservation and made no attempt to suggest another time. They sent us to the main dining room, which was empty, and the menu was ultra-expensive coffee shop eggs (one person got the chicken and said it was good). The toast order was wrong. One of my party ordered a martini which was served in a tumbler because "there's no bartender on duty." Another member of our party had to get up TWICE to search for a waiter. (On Mother's Day). We asked for their famous ice cream sundae but were told that there was only a self-serve dessert bar. We didn't go to the Waldorf for self-serve. While I'm at it, the valet couldn't find one person's car (she said "I guarantee it's the only Subaru in the garage"); that took a full thirty minutes. Never again. Read less
