Los Angeles is home to some of the most legendary hotels in the world and one of the iconic standouts is The Beverly Hilton, which was opened in 1955 by distinguished hotelier Conrad Hilton.

With an enviable position at the crossroads of the Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards, the 566-room hotel features 101 suites including nine private luxury suites, alongside one of the best pools in Beverly Hills and a new rooftop restaurant and bar, Sant’olina, which offers a melting pot of Mediterranean cuisine with a Southern California spin and sensational views of the Hollywood Hills and greater Los Angeles.

The legendary hotel is also well-known for its grand ballroom, which annually plays host to some of the city’s leading events, including the Golden Globe Awards Show, Oscar Nominee Luncheon and Pre-Grammy Gala.

To find out what makes this legendary property so unique, Wayfarer Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to The Beverly Hilton’s Hotel Manager, Michael Robertson (to view the video, click on the YouTube image above).

The Beverly Hilton is located at 9876 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, California 90210, United States of America.
