|The Beverly Hilton 4 star LA HOTEL|
Large hotel -- and icon in Beverly Hills -- full service hotel with enormous ball rooms and events space - in two towers -- attracting locals, conference traffic, Hollywood entertainment personalities, high end vacation goers and those having business in the vicinity.
This Hilton,due to it's prominent location and the high end nature of the events they hold there, including some Hollywood filming on property - is in excellent condition - with outstanding facilities, services, and knowledgable concierge services.
Rooms here are very well maintained with no flaws. Furnishings are more or less Hilton standard fare -- but a few nice elements are: towels are large terry towel variety - robes also very nice -- toiletries are upscale but not Ritz or Four Seasons standard.
The classic Trader Vic's is no longer -- has been torn down to make way for a Beverly Hills Waldorf being built adjacent to the Hilton. Breakfast buffet is good - not over the top. The two mornings I had the pleasure to eat there - you had the option to dine outside by the pool (which has a lot of history associated with it and is a classic scene) or inside with view -- but the best part was the level of service I found at this Hilton - a cut above in the training of staff - every person had great people skill exhibiting a very high standard of service.
Most hotels have invested in upgrading the quality of their staff and of their training -- but it is not universal in all Hiltons -- but this one, as you might expect -- is quite a cut above.
Even though a large property -- its location, service and staff -- make it an outstanding choice.
