SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

The hotel

Rolling out the red carpet, SLS Beverly Hills is a world of seductive glamour. And it’s a world conceived by creative minds like Philippe Starck (who designed all the interiors from the perfectly pure Ciel Spa to your guestroom, with its complimentary WiFi), and Chef José Andrés (who’s the force behind all four of its dining experiences). One of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2012, his creations here include SAAM’s 22 course tasting menu, Tres’ fine dining/comfort food fusion, and The Bazaar – a playful space mixing a tapas menu, seductive patisserie, and Starck’s design magic. Just a stroll from Beverly Center and 2 miles from Rodeo Drive, you can even experience Andrés’ culinary creations by the rooftop Altitude Pool, where overflowing pools are surrounded by oversized picture frames capturing views of LA, the ocean, and the Hollywood sign.

The SLS is more like a gussied up motel masquerading as a luxury hotel. Worst hotel and least attractive clientele than any other place in LA(it’s not in Beverly Hills). Could not wait for my two night stay to be over.

Yes, Los Angeles County has placed major restrictions on everyone. Yes, it’s difficult to do business with a skeleton crew. But, when a so-called luxury hotel doesn’t reduce rates and doesn’t provide basic services, they should be held accountable.

Yes, Los Angeles County has placed major restrictions on everyone. Yes, it’s difficult to do business with a skeleton crew. But, when a so-called luxury hotel doesn’t reduce rates and doesn’t provide basic services, they should be held accountable. CHECK-ON: a rather drunk customer with no mask (despite posted signs stating that masks were required in public places) hung around the front desk without honoring physical distancing while the desk clerk ignored her. ROOM: no glassware, not even plastic glassware; we called the desk to ask for two, but none ever arrived. PARKING: our son picked us up at the airport, drove us to the hotel, stayed for in-room dining, and left after 5 hours. Despite a posted maximum of $50, I was charged $55 (and, I might add that had he spent the entire night it would have been “just” $48. CHECK-OUT: despite being a Marriott Gold member, I was only allowed a one-hour extension to check-out time; I had requested 1 1/2 hours. Regardless of the later check-out, Housekeeping pounded on the door at 12:05 wanting to clean the room. Enough said. Read less

My family and I travelled to California October 24-02 Nov 2019. For the first 4 nights we stayed at the SLS Luxury Collection Beverly Hills. It was amazing! Checkin was very smooth, they offer you and your family a glass of champagne while checking in and the staff was very friendly. You would have thought that they would be stuffy and snobbish, but that was not the case. In fact everyone we met at the hotel and in Beverly Hills we were always greeted with a smile or hello. We were on the 7th floor overlooking the Hollywood Hills... we were not close but could see the sky view in the mornings. The rooms were very sophisticated, elegant and the bathroom was just utterly amazing with a movable shower curtain and spa like shower. The beds were comfortable and a fully stocked fridge/ liquor bar await you. If we wanted snacks we would walk to TraderJoes just about 5 minutes away and retrieve some. The SLS offers a house car that will take you within 3 miles, you just need to check on availability. Most times it was available for us and you would be in a Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes etc. The rooftop oil was out of this world, we went up a few times, sat at the bar, listened to music, watched the sunrise and the sunset... The Italian restaurants attached to the DLS is amazingly beautiful and it’s nice to go there fir an after dinner drink and dessert.. very beautiful and so upscale, again the staff were very down to earth. We walked from NBC the hotel towards West Hollywood which would have been another hour so we decided to turn back. We would have breakfast in Beverly Hills one day and the next we would go to West Hollywood. The day we went to a Rodeo Drive was a great day, it was warm and the staff in the high end stores were very friendly. They offered us water and offered if we needed any help. We decided to eat at Nate N Al Deli on Beverly Drive. This is a street over from Rodeo Drive and it has the best food ever. It was packed and the food was home cooked from breakfast to late dinner. After the 4 nights we went to Manhatten Beach for another 5 nights and stayed at the Marriott in Manhatten Beach. We had a beautiful 2 bedroom Villa with a kitchenette, 2 bathrooms. It was close to Target and a few pubs if we decided to get something to eat or go for Groceries. We would take Uber everyday to go from place to place or should I say Beach to beach. We went to Santa Monica , Manhatten Beach, Redondo Beach, Venice Beach, and muscle beach. We are at some really nice restaurants and pubs and drank a few margaritas. The beaches are out of this world, miles of beach and sand. On October 31st we went to the West Hollywood Halloween Carnivale , where 100,000 people attend with the most amazing costumes. Bands are set up down the block and bars moved the tables and chairs so people could go from the street for a drink. We went into 1 bar, sat down had 2 beer and then we walked to Sunset Blvd and ate at a pizza joint. October I found the weather to be warm in the day but cooled off in the evening. If you go in October be sure to bring a few sweaters/ pants and sneakers. Read less

Service was exceptional. They went above and beyond. Great place to stay. Just mentioned we were there for a birthday and they sent champagne and cake to the room later. It totally made the birthday girl happy during a rough time
