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.

We had a fantastic stay at the Beverly Hills Waldorf Astoria! Having been to this property multiple times to have a drink at the rooftop restaurant, this was our first time staying as guests. Needless to say, we were extremely excited. We pulled into the valet and were immediately assisted with our car as well as our luggage. We were checked in by Lauren who was fantastic and made us felt welcomed from the get go. Unfortunately our room was not ready at check in, so we headed to Rooftop by JG to wait. Our only complaint about the stay was that while check in was at 3pm, our room was not ready until about 5pm. Our bartender, Lilly found out about the wait, and went out of her way to really accommodate us. Huge shout out to Lilly for recovering a negative into a positive experience. The room we were assigned to was 417. The rooms were beautiful and felt luxurious. The toiletries were from Diptyque. We absolutely enjoyed the balcony and the view of Beverly Hills. We were staying the night to celebrate my girlfriends birthday, and upon entering the room we saw a small chocolate pastry wishing her a happy birthday. Overall we really enjoyed our room and the wonderful staff here at the Beverly Hills Waldorf Astoria. The location is central to everything in Beverly Hills and just a short walk from Rodeo Drive. We really wanted to shout out Lauren and Lilly who really showed personal and great service! Read less

I used to love this place but they have really fallin off. My last stay on July 2nd was the last straw for me. For $1k - $5k per night hotel there are bunch better options in Beverly Hills. If you are reading this trying to decide which option to choose - I would go Beverly Hills hotel or Bel Air Hotel - depending on what you are looking for - and then look to the Edition hotel and the Peninsula and 4 Seasons before coming back to WA. I’ll tell you why and tell you about some of the amenities WA offers and what actually occurs. 1. Service level - supposed to be 5 star. Upon arrival I was told that my room wasn’t ready unless I wanted to spend another $1500 for a room upgrade. I intended on upgrading my room and called an hour before I arrived to tell them this - however despite that fact I could book the next room up on my phone at that exact moment- the front desk insisting he couldn’t do that and I needed to double my spend. When I showed him the availability of the room I desired he bag an to argue with me. It made no sense and the guy couldn’t keep his story straight. It was quite embarrassing having to argue with the front desk at an establishment such as this. 2. Small dog stay - we spent an $200 for a small dog fee which was to include a bed and food/water bowl. Since the bell hop didn’t bring the dog supplies up, we were told by the bell that he would return with our dog supplies immediately. I gave him a $20 tip which I feel is reasonably generous tip. That didn’t happen. We called in and reminded them we were still waiting and needed it promptly. We got ready for dinner and 90 minutes later we needed to leave for a night out and realized no one ever came with the supplies. We had to call again and were told they would come up with it. Another 20 minutes later no one had arrived so we had to call a 3rd time and at this point we were late for our dinner reservation but we were not going to leave our dog with no food or water for the night. Eventually it arrived and I didn’t tip the guy and he was visibly disappointed. How much extra am I supposed to tip after I tipped $20 and had to ask 3 times for this? 3. Concierge on the app - super cool idea. They help you with “whatever” you need just by using the Hilton app. However most of the time we had to follow up after my message “hi just following up on this”. Last time we were here at the WA the same thing happened and they were unable to get us reservations stating the restaurant was filling committed but I was able to open my open table and there was a table available and I booked it that way. This time is was a similar story where I asked about reservations but this time they didn’t even bother to reply at all. So don’t count on the concierge to be getting you into any fine dining you can’t just get yourself on open table. 4. House car- This is one of my favorite features of the hotel they have a brand new rolls Royce phantom to take you to dinner in. However whenever I tried to book I was told it was already booked. When you go down to valet and ask they tell you to book it through the concierge but when i did that I was told it’s booked until 10pm that night. How is it being booked when no one can book it? They only take people max 3 miles from the hotel so for the car to be booked from 6 to 1030 solid they would have to have 27 different booking already. Maybe there was I don’t know, or Maybe there is a secret way to do that now that was different from last time. Who knows. 5. Room upgrade with Diamond membership - when I went to cabo Waldorf last year when I arrived they greeted me with a cocktail and a free room upgrade as explained as a feature of a hilton diamond membership. And I am reminded often in my emails why I should keep paying my American Express fee and how great all these extras are fro being a honors member. However at BH WA, if I didn’t remind them every time it wouldn’t happen and then on this time even asking for it wasn’t enough. He had to argue with me about it front of other guests. They need to change their marketing to say that you get this extra as an honor member but only if you are ready to make a big fuss and look like an a-hole in front of other guests. At a 5star hotel this should be handled discretely and in advance. 6 - pool and jacuzzi - they have a beautiful pool and jacuzzi on the roof but it closes at 7pm and we couldn’t use it. And the checkout is at 11am so you don’t have any chance to use it unless you stay for multiple nights since it’s only for hotel guests. I called them and asked them for an late check out so we go to the pool and get lunch ($200 lunch usually easy) but they said I had to pay for a half night stay to get a late checkout (which is also included in my honor membership). At this point I was so frustrated with them I argued with them and told them it’s included for me as a diamond member and they obliged to a 1pm but not a 4pm checkout despite that I was simply extending the Check out to go spend money there and I checked - they had available rooms the next day they weren’t fully booked. (I get it if they are fully booked). At BHH they pretty much always give me a 4pm checkout. 7. The food - the rooftop restaurant has a beautiful view - it’s really nice - however the food is not good. It’s about 2-3x the price of a nice restaurant ($35 per cocktail) and I have yet to have a delicious cocktail or entree on the rooftop. I haven’t tried to the downstairs restaurant though. It might be great. I do still like going you just have to know you are going only for the view. Service isn’t bad. It’s like Disneyland or something where the food isn’t good but you like the attraction so you just kinda put up with it. There’s always tables available at the downstairs JG when I’ve been even on very busy weekends so I doubt it’s that great. But who knows. I’m contrast the Beverly Hills hotel and bel air hotel both has amazing cocktails and food. I’m out of time but I think you get the idea! Happy travels! Read less

My wife and I had a short three day, two night stay here over a weekend in June this year. We fell in love with this hotel and want to be back in a bad way. Anytime we're in LA we'll prioritize staying here. The Room: We had a room on the third floor, facing south towards downtown LA. We didn't have that much to look at aside from the Peninsula Hotel and Santa Monica Boulevard, with a hazy LA skyline a few miles away. That's about the only negative things I can say about the room. What a treat of a room. Beautifully designed with classical touches, it felt elegant and special. The ceilings were high, the decor was attractive, the bed was super comfy, the Alexa connection for opening blinds or shutting off lights was handy, the closet was huge, and turndown service was great. I loved getting up early (EST timezone) and having a coffee on the balcony and then taking a shower in the huge bathroom. The Grounds: It's a city hotel, so there isn't that much in the way of "grounds" but the location and facilities were just fantastic. The pool on the top floor was great, free sunscreen, attentive servers, warm water, amazing views. The actual hotel entrances were grand and impressive. The lobby fireplace was nice! The Food: We had breakfast two mornings at Jean-George, which was pretty ok - a little pricey for the quality of food in my opinion. Not poor quality, mind you, just a little much for what you get. Had dinner at Jean -George on the first night there. Food was again pretty good, very expensive, and service was not entirely up to par with JG in NYC. I guess because it's a hotel restaurant and not a stand-alone? Food at the roof deck (also by JG) was pretty similar, but the service was better up there (which is weird a bunch of the staff works at both restaurants). We had some unfortunate mishaps with the concept of "no spicy ingredients" being interpreted as "chili flakes aren't spicy" when the food came out. Helpful waiters though and quick corrections. The Staff: The staff here really really seem to care. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and a joy to be around. We had drinks at the rooftop, and our server from a previous night recognized us and stopped by to say hi. The front door folks were super great and helpful with bags and car doors. The pool folks were super great as well. I felt really cared for while here. The drivers of the house cars were super professional. In Summary: Stay here because you're close to fun stuff, you have beautiful rooms, great food, and can get driven around in a Rolls. Read less
