The Beverly Hills Hotel
Nicknamed the Pink Palace, this rose-coloured stucco tower has been a hideaway for celebrities and the well-heeled, such as Elizabeth Taylor and John Lennon, for over a century.
What we loved Kicking back in a recently revamped poolside cabana, complete with a flat-screen television, Wi-Fi and, to cool down, frozen mojito lollipops (different refreshments are doled out daily).
If you only have one night Make it a Wednesday for the complimentary sunset 9021-OM yoga class on the upper terrace with a vinyasa expert.
Bonus The hotel’s Polo Lounge, with its upholstered green booths and plush carpets, was featured in The Way We Were.
