While there is no shortage of luxury and ultra-luxury hotels within the city’s few square miles, the Waldorf Astoria will surely raise the luxury standard with modern elegance throughout. From the three-story lobby featuring hand-painted murals and a custom bronze chandelier to a collection of unique Lalique crystal installations and what the hotel promises will be “significant artworks,” the new Waldorf will be a magnate for visitors and residents alike.
We can't wait to visit the 5,000-square-foot La Prairie Spa, the new Tracey Cunningham Salon, and the rooftop pool -- with VIP cabanas, of course. We hear that the cherry on top will be two hot-ticket dining spaces by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the star behind the three-star Jean-Georges in New York City, one of the five finest French restaurants in the Americas.
And the best part? The new Waldorf Astoria is just around the corner from the newest must-shop boutique, Only in Beverly Hills. Make it a day and visit us both! We're at 9607 S. Santa Monica Blvd., between Sprinkles Cupcakes and Rodeo Drive.
