The Thompson Beverly Hills is Open...Sorta
We heard word through the hotel industry grapevine that Thompson Beverly Hills while under construction has two full floors of finished rooms.
Since we just drove by the place on Tuesday and it looked like this (above) we could hardly believe the whispers. So we gave the hotel's reservations line a call and we learned that YES, the place is OPEN. Although, it's operating under the Beverly Pavilion name, not yet Thompson Hotels.
The kind lady who answered our call said that the rooms have been renovated and upgraded (designed by Dodd Mitchell) but do not feature any of the fancy Thompson amenities such as Sferra linens or posh toiletries. Prices range from $129 to $189 depending on occupancy and can be booked online at the Beverly Pavilion website.
What a deal! If you don't mind construction that is....The hotel is supposed to be fully completed sometime Fall 2007. Remember, Jason's precious granite was held hostage by Colombian guerrillas.
