Frond Memories

Beverly Hills Hotel

First the Ritz Paris, and now the Beverly Hills Hotel is up for a make-over. Sadly, I did not get a chance to check into the Ritz before they closed for two years this past summer. Another great, The Hotel Bel-Air, has finally reopened after a multi-year re-do. I stayed at the Bel-Air often when I was little and I hear the recent updates erased a bit of its charm.

At the risk of sounding like a stick-in-the-mud, I am not loving all the renovations of my favorite hotels. We stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel when visiting my husband’s family, and breakfast in the Fountain Room above before claiming a spot by the pool, is a tradition.  I know first hand that it could hit the refresh button (especially after the hideous changes from the 1980’s), but I am relieved to hear that the palm frond wallpaper is protected and the curved counter is not going to be touched. Phew.

  • Oh thank God, it’s my favourite hotel, I even went out and bought that wallpaper, the Bel Air is lovely, we went over this year but it has lost it’s secret hideway home from home cosy feeling.
