I’d always heard wonderful things about the Peninsula Beverly Hills, so I was quite excited to be finally experiencing the hotel.
I checked into my suite late on a Friday evening, and to my delight noticed my pillow had my initials on it. Nice touch! Too tired to venture out, I spent my first night indulging in their extensive in-room dining menu, the large Italian marble soaker tub, and ultimately, my king sized plush bed.
Saturday morning, I headed to the Peninsula Spa for their signature organic custom facial and their custom signature massage. It was ultimate bliss. Next time, I’ll make sure to try their White Chocolate Body Souffle treatment. The all natural cherry exfoliate they used on my skin smelled good enough to eat. My skin was literally glowing when I walked out and I was so relaxed and content, I was ready for my next stop; shopping!
The Peninsula Beverly Hills is located minutes from Rodeo Drive and close to some of the world’s best shopping. I booked the hotel’s Rolls Royce Phantom to roll around Beverly Hills in style. This is a complimentary service for all hotel guests.
In the evening I dined at The Belvedere, the hotel’s triple AAA five diamond award wining restaurant. The grilled Thai Snapper Fillet with Charred mango, bok choy and Blood orange-green apple coconut dill sauce was sensational. And of course, I couldn’t leave without trying a few desserts. Now I’m not normally a big fan of chocolate mousse, but it was recommended that I try the Mousse Au Chocolat with Valrhona Chocolate Pearls. Well, what can I say.. there wasn’t a morsel left in the cup.
If I had to choose one word to describe my whole experience: flawless. The service was impeccable and this hotel goes above and beyond to ensure every need is met as promptly as possible.
My verdict: Spectacular! The Peninsula Beverly Hills was everything I expected and more.
