THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL IS 100 YEARS OLD!
The legendary Beverly Hills Hotel was opened on May 12, 1912 and it immediately became a movie star magnet. Paul Williams was one of the original architects who worked on the lush property. Through the years just about every celebrity patronized the Fountain Coffee Shop and the Polo Lounge. The pool area, with its private cabanas, was used for weddings, power lunches, and film locations. When the Beatles came to town the pool was opened at night so they could have a private swim. In the late 80’s the Sultan of Brunei bought the hotel and everyone was afraid he would update the beloved decor. Happily, he renovated in a tasteful way that maintained the original spirit of the glamorous hotel. We’re glad it’s still around.
