The Beverly Hills Hotel, Beverly Hills California California
"The Pink Palace" is the new Plush Pup Resort for You and Your Pet
It's the mecca for Hollywood's elite, a home to stars and high society patrons, it remains one of the most iconic hotels in the world. Nothing can compare to its history or compete with its 12 lush acres of tropical gardens and exotic flowers... just ask Journey he's been on the prowl.
He's a celebrity! They rolled out the red carpet to greet him.
"What becomes a legend most is when controversy collides with politics but tradition remains the same. The Beverly Hills Hotel has always preserved the vestibules of Hollywood's Golden Age and beyond. It is the most iconic hotel in the entire Dorchester Collection." Nancy Chuda
We just returned from Paris and London having stayed at Le Meurice, The Dorchester, 45 Park Lane and Coworth Park in Ascot... all properties part of the collection. Each hotel offers exceptional culinary choices but what brings the memories to life is the Tasting Menu served by the Beverly Hills Hotel.
We sampled some of the best. But the Chocolate Souffle remains the crown jewel of deserts from the Polo Lounge.
As part of the in room dining service we reminisced about our exquisite culinary experiences throughout the Dorchester Collection.
From the moment we checked in... Journey got his treats!
Our suite was magnificent. On the third floor and overlooking the palm-trees, a forest to be exact.
Journey settled in comfortably on his favorite blanket, a Native American designed towel by Pendleton from Outpost Trading Company. Perfect for traveling with your pet.
Keeping the tradition alive
History abounds mixed with rumors but some say the one of the biggest splashes heard around Hollywood was Katharine Hepburn once dove fully clothed into the pool after a tennis game. Compared to today's stars and their behavioral antics that seems rather dull. In the '60's the Beatles were sneaked into the pool through a back way.Hernando Courtright, who ran the hotel in the 1930s and '40s, is responsible for the hotel's pink facade and striped awnings.
