Los Angeles, CA - Raffles L'Ermitage, Beverly Hills


Los Angeles and its citizens hold proud the notion that they are at the center of everything, and since the city’s founding, the claims have been fairly difficult to refute. Today, Los Angeles is a microcosm of the riches that settlers chased into California, a place where ambition runs amok, unchecked, and the potential for success, fame, and glamour can be as sudden and fleeting as a flash of gold in a river pan. Those who’ve achieved this mythical status, thus, have taken up residence in the metaphorically apt central residential area of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills. Film stars, industry icons, and the entourage that follows—dieticians, yoga instructors, and corporate executives—occupy a neighbourhood characterized by wealth and serenity, blending professional triumph with a passive, Zen-like aesthetic. Raffles International, a hotel management company with 37 leading properties worldwide, has always held the dynamic and character of the location as integral to the scope of new projects. At the Raffles L’Ermitage Beverly Hills, located on Burton Way just south of Santa Monica Boulevard, the gentle design marriage of luxury interior décor and state-of-the-art technology make this hotel the best stay for both the business and the leisure traveller. Those in the corporate, music and entertainment industries demand the technology, just as leisure travellers demand the style, comfort, and elegance.

The luxury of technology featured in each of the hotel’s 124 guest rooms set a peerless standard in the industry. 40-inch televisions, Bose speakers, CD/DVD players with complimentary library of titles, Web TV, a copier-printer-scanner-fax machine, wireless and DSL high-speed Internet and four multi-line telephones, including a direct-dial private number puts even the most well-equipped offices to shame. The reach of technology, and the foresight of the system, actually trumps the pure hardware as well. The ‘Inncom’ system promptly learns and adapts to a guest’s climate and lighting preferences, which can be controlled either from the wall, or along with the stereo, television, and DVD, from the comfort of one’s own bed. As Raffles understands, being on the cutting edge requires one to overstep their bounds sometimes, and nowhere is this truer than at L’Ermitage. Looking to the day when fiber optics become the market standard for information access and transfer, the hotel is completed wired to adapt to this inevitable technological stride.

The high-tech amenities with high-class Euro-Asian furnishings as well, including quarter-paneled English Sycamore wood with silk shams on king-size platform beds. A fully-stocked private bar in the room offers guests complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, and in-room safes and safe-deposit boxes offer all guests peace of mind. Thick terry cloth towels and robes hang on the backs of bathroom doors. French doors open up onto private balconies with views of either the city or the foothills to the north and the east. The elegance of the privacy you’re afforded at L’Ermitage extends from your room to the on-site, guests only private fitness center and rooftop pool (where the rich fragrance of rosemary and olive trees waft across the deck), ensuring that today and into the future, guests of the hotel are guaranteed the most up-to-date amenities and security for their fast-paced lives. Small but meaningful perks like flexible check-in and check-out times, and the accommodation of small pets, offer the subtle personal touches indicative of world-class hospitality.

It is the personable luxuries at L’Ermitage that have helped garner its Mobil Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond Award Ratings again in 2004—the industry’s most elusive and coveted pair of awards. This classy and sleek establishment wins over guests (and the editorial boards at discerning magazines like Conde Nast and Travel + Leisure) like Giorgio Armani, who stays here whenever on the West Coast, with their core innovative policies and a penchant for exceeding expectations. JAAN, the hotel’s signature restaurant, fuses the creative culinary harmonies of California to form exciting gourmet flavours for the palate. If the refined dining room ambiance feels too formal, any dish from any of the restaurant’s seasonal menus can be enjoyed anywhere in the hotel—in a poolside cabana, at the Writer’s Bar, or in the privacy of your own room. The recent $60-million refurbishment to the property owes much of its hefty price tag to the RafflesAmrita Spa on the hotel's eighth floor, where cutting-edge facilities, private steam rooms, and a personalized line of aromatherapy products are featured. Indeed, from the moment you set foot in the lobby and set eyes on the authentic silk textiles hanging here, recovered from the 12th century Chinese Jin Dynasty, to the data ports in each room, rarely does a single hotel so brilliantly blend the old and the new with such seamless style and grace. On the doorstep of one of the most famous and eclectic cities in the world, there is no better way to experience the vibrant culture of Los Angeles, and to live as the stars do when they visit.
