Avalon Beverly Hills
The Avalon Hotel, which is tucked away in a secluded residential neighborhood adjacent to Beverly Hills, was originally built in 1949. Once a home-away- from-home for mid-century celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the hotel features luxurious room interiors, public spaces and it’s signature restaurant Viviane, styled by icon designer Kelly Wearstler.
Today, the property offers 84 guestrooms and suites, many with kitchenettes or private patios, a full-service wellness studio, an hourglass pool and patio with outdoor dining. It’s the quintessential boutique experience in the heart of Beverly Hills, all centered around a boomerang-shaped pool with private cabanas.
Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills offers a special experience this New Year’s eve tailored for travelers who seek and appreciate modern luxury in a quiet setting. As you lay in the comfort of your king bed in a room with custom glazed European white oak hardwood flooring, take advantage of the Bluetooth speaker to set the playlist mood for the evening and use the room’s KeyPR tablet to customize your in-room service and make dinner reservations for the night.
After you’ve enjoyed refreshing yourself under the rain shower and taking advantage of the Momo bathroom amenities from Davines, slip downstairs to Viviane to celebrate New Year’s Eve, dining in the sultry dining room, or poolside under the stars. Continue the party in a cabana for the midnight countdown, before retiring to your Kelly Wearstler-designed luxury suite.
