Last week, we showed you some of the prettiest hotel carpeting yet found inside the Four Seasons Los Angeles. Now, as promised, we take you inside one of the guestrooms so you can see for yourself that the hotel isn't just a one-pretty carpeting trick pony.

As we mentioned, these guestrooms are practically brand-new with the hotel having completed the renovation of all guestrooms and suites last January. So now let's step inside a deluxe guestroom on the 9th floor....

The first thing that will catch your eye is the oversized headboard above the bed. Yes, we know opinion is still divided over these soaring headboards but the floral design has a sweet little story behind it.

The hotel's owners, the Cohens, were actually in the flower business before they partnered with Four Seasons to build the hotel in 1987. So when it came time to redesign the guest rooms, the owners asked interior designer Sue Firestone of SFA Design to incorporate their love of floral and fauna onto the headboards and the carpeting.

Not only do we think the floral headboard works, we love that the owners care enough about the hotel to add such personal touches. Most owners purely see their hotels as a business transaction so it's nice to see a branded hotel like this Four Seasons get a little extra attention.

Aside from the great views of Century City from the room's balcony (all rooms have one), the spacious bathroom, and the bonus DVD player beneath the flat-screen TV, we especially liked the welcome amenity left by Four Seasons for the guest yet to check-in--a personalized cupcake made by the hotel's own in-house pastry chef, Federico Fernandez.

Now all this extra attention does cost something, about $800 a night for a standard room. Rates typically start around $430 a night but this month, the hotel is crazy busy and able to charge the higher rates.

However, the hotel is running a special package that gives you some insane bang for your buck. The Just the Two of Us package gives guests four hours of spa treatments, dinner for two at Culina, breakfast daily, poolside cabanas (we'll show you those tomorrow), cocktails at the hotel's Window Lounge, as well as unlimited movies, minibar snacks (excluding booze), laundry and pressing, internet and valet parking (a necessity in LA.)

The package starts at $995 a night and a two-night minimum stay is required. But it's only valid through August 28 so book fast.
