Next year marks the centennial anniversary of the city of Beverly Hills and, to celebrate, the Southern California destination is working with five of its luxury hotel partners to offer specialty themed suites, each of which hearkens to a different era of the city, from the 1940s to the present day. 

The hospitality promotion, called Suite 100, is being offered at the following properties: The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows (“The Golden Age Inspired by Marilyn Monroe” – 1950s), Montage Beverly Hills (“Film Noir” of the 1940s), The Beverly Hilton (“Stylish, Sophisticated Sixties: A Re-Imagined Revolution”), L’Ermitage Beverly Hills (“The Era of Studio 54 – Fashion & Art Collide” – 1970s), and The Peninsula Beverly Hills (“The Birth of Modern Glamour” – 2000s).

Guests who stay or groups that reserve the specialty suites will be treated to a comprehensive experience that may include accompanying vintage automobiles for use around the city; vintage periodicals and other special touches in each suite; and personal concierge service that parallels each respective decade.

Prices for each suite will vary, and the suites will be available only from March to December 2014. Suite 100 Project Director Susan Manrao, principal of Susan Manrao Design, worked with each property’s interior designers to create each of the specialty suites.

“Travelers can go anywhere in the world to experience luxury service and amenities,” said Julie Wagner, executive director of the Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau. “But thanks to Suite 100 and the commitment of five of our most luxurious hotels, only in Beverly Hills in 2014 can they travel back in time to experience the luxury of an earlier era.”

Visitors to Beverly Hills in 2014 can expect to see a number of centennial-related events, Beverly Hills Mayor John Mirisch noted at a press event in New York today. These include automobile shows, ceremonies, and a Rodeo Drive event on March 23 in which the busy thoroughfare will be closed to traffic in order to serve thousands of slices of chocolate cake from the Guittard Chocolate Company.

Just last week, the city also welcomed its newest attraction, the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts. Its 500-seat Bram Goldsmith Theater and 150-seat Lovelace Studio theater will host a variety of performances throughout the year, and group discounted tickets are available for groups of 20 or more.
