Montage Beverly Hills
A Maybach parked out front sets the tone at the Montage Beverly Hills, which channels old Hollywood (beamed ceilings; muraled walls) and new L.A. (rooftop pool; Pilates studio). Despite the fact that the hotel opened in November—during one of the worst economic moments in history—this sister to the super-successful Montage Laguna Beach still pampers with perks like poolside foot massages and a monogrammed bolster on the bed. Oh, and did we mention the Mercedes convertibles available to guests staying in suites, and the hotel’s gold-ink pens? Both are befitting of this glamorous address.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
