The Beverly Hills Hotel is Still Working on Those Renovations
We stopped by the Beverly Hills Hotel the other day because we were curious about the ongoing renovations. Yet when we walked along the red carpeted entrance into the Pink Palace, there wasn't much for us to see.
A circular construction wall has been put up in the grand foyer, revealing absolutely nothing. Although we could tell that the carpeting had not yet been upgraded. There was also two lounge chairs and a table in the back of the circular construction wall and these looked somewhat newish. Perhaps a hint of the design to come?
Yet despite the renovations, the hotel is still going about celebrating its 100th anniversary. At check-in, there are detailed sings featuring the history of the hotel and there are specialty drinks in the restaurants and bars while guests can book various commemorative hotel and spa packages.
But as the hotel promised us back in October, the Fountain Coffee Room downstairs has not been touched. Aside from a special decal on the menu, absolutely everything--from the bar stools to the friendly servers in their light pink shirts to that great-tasting grilled cheese with bacon-- is blissfully as it's always been.
