Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills

Conceived by coveted French designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, Waldorf Astoria’s latest location is opulence at every angle, starting with the double-height, three-tiered lobby — all Lalique crystal, Italian marble, 22-carat gold leaf, and glossy cherry wood. Its rooms and suites are of course just as over-the-top, boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, and your own private balcony that looks out to breathtaking views of the Hollywood Hills. For dining, the restaurant’s chef is non other than New York’s finest Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
