For a luxury hotel celebrating a centennial this year, the news was icing on the cake. In late July, the city of Beverly Hills designated the Beverly Hills Hotel its first historic landmark. The Pink Palace has been a glam address for A-listers since 1912; Katherine Hepburn once dived fully clothed into the pool after a tennis match. (For more details and tips about the gorgeous pool, and including our favorite cabana picks, check out this article from our May issue.)
The 100th anniversary celebration will continue with fun-filled events all year. And to fete this new Historic Landmark honor, the hotel has rolled out a “Landmark Offer”—doling out a third or fourth night free for guests reserving rooms from September 7 to December 30, 2012. Rates start at $495 a night. For more information, visit www.beverlyhillshotel.com.
