Living the Dream
Beverly Hills is the most glamorous city in all of California. On your next visit to Beverly Hills you could stay in one of the usual places, but what fun would that be? To be treated like a celebrity, stay at the Montage Beverly Hills where you can enjoy a luxurious boutique-style hotel and have the use of a Mercedes Benz with your stay, driver not included. Reserve a Deluxe Suite or higher room category with a published rate of $925.00, plus tax. Or book a Suite Escape package that offers a $500 hotel credit when three consecutive nights are booked.
Shopping is the perfect activity in your cool ride. Everyone knows about the posh shops on Rodeo Drive, but you will want to visit the Perrin Paris 1983 store, the French purveyor of handbags and accessories that made its only US debut here. Perrin bags lack large logos and instead are more architectural in their design with unusual materials and construction techniques. You may also want to check out the department store titans: Barney’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus located on Wilshire Blvd.
Enjoy pampering at one of several local spas. Spa Montage is in a two-story building, with 17 treatment rooms, a co-ed mineral pool, a full-service salon, yoga studio and fully-equipped fitness center. It is truly an urban getaway and after your treatment you can take a nap in your room without driving anywhere.
At Sonya Dakar’s Skin Care Clinic on Santa Monica Boulevard you can choose from facials, scrubs and anti-aging treatments, but the perks don’t stop there. Clients have access to other unique personal services including day care, pet grooming and transport via helicopter for those seeking that exclusive, over-the-top experience.
After all that hard work you are likely to work up an appetite. Indulge in French-colonial Vietnam at Crustacean Restaurant with their beautiful interiors and delicious cuisine. Spago, Wolfgang Puck’s flagship restaurant, promises innovative California cuisine, glittering clientele and first-rate service in a beautiful indoor-outdoor setting. Scarpetta in the Montage Beverly Hills exudes Old Hollywood grandeur in combination with rustic, natural accents throughout the main dining room, al fresco courtyard and bar area. A trip to LA would not be complete without a visit to the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
With your Mercedes-Benz from Montage, you can go beyond the city-limits too. Visit the Getty Villa, see the beach, go to Universal Studios, the options are endless since Beverly Hills is in the center of Los Angeles.
Details: Montage Beverly Hills is located at 225 North Cannon Drive in Beverly Hills, California, just minutes from Rodeo Drive. They have 55 suites that can accommodate staff, extended family or an entourage, as well as 200 guestrooms.
