"Waldorf Astoria" and "Beverly Hills" are synonymous with "luxury." Now, the two names are together at last thanks to the arrival of Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, which opened last week at the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards in Beverly Hills, CA, Hilton Hotels announced Friday.

"Waldorf Astoria's West Coast expansion is celebrated today with the opening of a new, modern icon, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, which will offer global travelers a new standard of luxury in Los Angeles," said John T.A. Vanderslice, global head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. "Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills matches our brand's commitment to offering unforgettable experiences, first-class accommodations, and true Waldorf service in the world's most sought after destinations."

Located adjacent to the iconic Beverly Hilton hotel, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts' first new-build hotel on the West Coast and its second California property. Totaling 12 stories, it has 170 accommodations -- 119 guest rooms and 51 suites, each of which has floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto oversized private balconies -- designed with an art deco theme by interior design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon.

Other highlights include the triple-height lobby, which includes hand-painted murals and custom crystal chandeliers; the rooftop deck, which includes VIP cabanas, a lounge area with panoramic views, and a swimming pool; three onsite restaurants created by iconic French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten; a spa and salon; complimentary car service in a private Rolls Royce house car; and 6,300 square feet of meeting space, including two ballrooms.

"Bringing the renowned Waldorf Astoria brand to Beverly Hills has been a dream for many years," said hotel owner Beny Alagem, "and as we open our doors to this stunningly beautiful hotel today, I think every visitor stepping across our threshold will agree that our dream has been fulfilled far and beyond even our wildest imagination."
