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.

Highly convenient location to our destination (Cedars Sinai Medical Center) and other area activities; terrific venue (restaurant, spa/fitness facility and pool all top notch). Don’t miss the cocktail hour.

In short: nice hotel near central/west LA and Hollywood with some shortcomings if you're expecting a true 5-star experience. My wife and I spent a Thursday-Monday trip to celebrate a milestone birthday. We booked directly through the Marriott site using my Bonvoy account (basic level, no status).

In short: nice hotel near central/west LA and Hollywood with some shortcomings if you're expecting a true 5-star experience. My wife and I spent a Thursday-Monday trip to celebrate a milestone birthday. We booked directly through the Marriott site using my Bonvoy account (basic level, no status). Check-in was quick and we were able to get into our room early, around 2:00pm. That was very fortunate, because the lobby has basically no seating to speak of. What appears to be an open sitting area inside is actually one of the restaurants, and the outdoor seating is underneath an overhang that also houses the designated smoking bench. The room was modern and clean. The bed was very low to the ground and extremely squeaky, even just getting in and out. The bathroom definitely prioritized form over function. It had odd sliding doors that did not close completely, as well as a lot of echos inside the bathroom itself. Go ahead and do the math on those two things being put together, and suffice it to say this is not a hotel for a relationship in its early stages. The service we received during our stay was quite inconsistent. On the positive end was the valet/house car, check-in, engineering (heating in room did not work when we arrived, but was fixed before we returned from dinner), and the concierge which was able to recover and mail back a lost scarf. The hostesses and servers at Tres pretty much ignored us while we were looking for somewhere to have tea while waiting for our room to be made up. The bathrobe in our room had a green stain on it and was removed but never replaced, even after a specific request. We also had 2 additional bath towels that were put in our room with stains on them. I requested additional water bottles for turndown, and depending on the day we would receive anywhere from 0 to 4 bottles. All in all, it was a pleasant, but not exactly luxurious stay. There's a reason it's not as expensive as its competitors near Rodeo Drive. Read less

arrived @1:30pm after 7hr flight, room was not ready, they did everything to block any request for any alternative solution (I have offered even to get access to the spa to refresh) rude! Will never go back

SLS is a solid hotel, I enjoy all their locations. We were greeted by Blake, who always gave us a warm welcome and stocked our car with water for whenever we took our car out of valet.

SLS is a solid hotel, I enjoy all their locations. We were greeted by Blake, who always gave us a warm welcome and stocked our car with water for whenever we took our car out of valet. The hostess at breakfast was always so kind to us as well- speaking of which the breakfast is great, especially the salmon yum! Were in and out of LA a lot, this is a hotel we come to often. Drinks at the bazaar were fantastic, excited to dine there during our next visit. Thank you! Read less
