Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles
Given the diverse nature of Los Angeles, it makes perfect sense to experience it from a luxury hotel located centrally. The newly-renovated Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is hidden in plain sight offering a glamorous but low-key oasis at the heart of the city, with the addition of new wellness rooms. Culina restaurant offers a wide menu of culturally-inspired dishes and a sumptuous Sunday brunch. The Vinoteca lounge is an Italian-inspired wine and espresso bar ideal for either a fine coffee experience to start the day or a sensual glass of wine to end one.

A little over decade ago, owner Jeff Klein first reinvented the landmark Sunset Tower, creating what is known today as the unofficial epicenter of Hollywood. Klein embarked on a refresh of the hotel and common areas with his personal touch with the goal of restoring its heart and soul while not compromising the character of such an iconic building. The dining arrangements focus on two distinct options, the Tower Bar and the Terrace. The Tower Bar is very grown-up with walnut paneling, a fireplace, and classic bar – located in what was formerly the room of a gangster at the Tower, Bugsy Siegel. Maitre’D Gabe Doppelt is at the helm of this luxurious restaurant.
