Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air Pampers Guests for Oscars

January 30, 2013 at 1:48 PM | by | ()

It's Oscar time! Or, as they say in Los Angeles hotels, "award season," which is equivalent to "high season" everywhere else outside of Tinsel Town so good luck getting a room. Oh, and you'll never see so much neck craning in hotel lobbies in your life. We've seen "normal" people throw on a cute outfit and dark shades just to get their five minutes. But we know our readers are much more fancier.

In honor of award season, the Dorchester Collection's Hotel Bel-Air and the Beverly Hills Hotel are giving guests the opportunity to experience a red-carpet moment with special amenities and themed packages that celebrate perhaps the only thing Hollywood looks forward to in February. This only happens once a year, people, so pay attention and start booking!

Specialty Cocktails
While you won't find the campy likes of "Zero Dark & Stormy Thirty" or "Cosmopo-Lincoln" (oh, come on, it's Dorchester here), the two hotels unveiled award-winning concoctions for this special occasion. We'll meet you at the bar.

The Beverly Hills Hotel
A reserve vintage 1985 Veuve Clicquot Champagne ($350 in a 1.5L magnum format) commemorates this year’s 85th awards event.
The Envelope Please - Karlsson’s Gold Vodka, peach-honey syrup, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and Moët Imperial Champagne, the official champagne of the awards

Hotel Bel-Air
The Red Carpet - Ketel One Citroen, Cointreau, lemon juice, simple syrup, splash of raspberry puree
Best Dressed - Skyy Citrus, Cointreau, lime juice, passionfruit puree, cranberry juice

Bar Bites by Celebrity Chef Wolfgang Puck
At The Bar at Hotel Bel-Air, guests can munch on delicious delectables made by the Wolf-man himself. Expect a small bites menu inspired by the hors d'oeuvres served at the season's premier parties.

All That Glitters
Who walks the Red Carpet without a spa tune-up? The La Prairie spas at both hotels are offering a package that includes a 90-minute Radiance Pure Gold Facial, and a Perfect Manicure and Pedicure complete with Deborah Lippmann’s gold polish. Prices from $375 to $425 and available until February 25.

The Little Legends “Best Guest” Package (The Beverly Hills Hotel)
At the Beverly Hills Hotel, "youngsters" can experience a fifteen-minute, Rebecca Black moment with this package that includes a special red carpet photo opportunity taken in front of the hotel’s “step and repeat” wall, personalized chocolate star amenity, miniature gold awards statuette, Little Legends t-shirt, choice of an ice cream sundae or milkshake in the Fountain Coffee Shop, and a VVIP Beverly Hills Hotel card that can be redeemed for complimentary sodas and juices throughout the hotel. Priced from $470. Recommended for children 5 – 10 years, but available to “children” of all ages. Package for up to two children per room, one sundae or milkshake per child.

Hotel Bel-Air rates from $530 and Beverly Hills Hotel rates from $510 per night.
