SLS – Beverly Hills
SLS Beverly Hills
Conveniently located between Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, The SLS offers a quiet, luxurious haven for visitors and weekend getaway guests, combining a boutique setting with expansive views of the city. With its striking Philippe Starck-designed interiors and a dining program crafted by James Beard Award-winning chef, José Andrés, the SLS is one of Los Angeles’ top destinations for those seeking a hotel that mixes contemporary style and extraordinary food. Each guest room is equipped with a floating bed, exquisite custom furniture and comforting alcoves while deluxe accommodations offer a dreamy marble, free-standing tub – bubbles included, of course –a garden terrace, and panoramic views.
If you’re really looking to maximize the luxury, the SLS’ Afternoon Indulgence package is the route to take, offering relaxing treatments from Biologique Recherche at Ciel Spa by Pearl Wellness ($200 credit) and a dining experience at acclaimed restaurant Tres by José Andrés, where lunch is elevated by the chef’s famed innovative creativity married with traditional comfort food fare. The package is sold in combination with superior, premier, terrace, and studio rooms with a starting rate of $599 (valued at $800).
Once spa’d and fed, check out the hotel’s recently debuted Bar Blanca, located on the terrace of award-winning restaurant The Bazaar by José Andrés. As a nod to Andrés’ Spanish heritage, the contemporary lounge features a seasonal menu of tapas and traditional porron service – that is, a wine pitcher for serving sidra (cider), Fino sherry, or Basque wine either into a glass or straight into your mouth, which we highly suggest in order to really look authentic. Some of our favorite whimsical appetizers include their Tortilla de Patatas “New Way,” Jamón with Idiazábal, and Catalan Style Toasted Bread. Pair a light meal there with one of Andrés’ signature Gin & Tonics, Vermut, or Rebujito.
