Avalon Hotel: An Old Hollywood Retreat In Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills is home to the world famous Rodeo Drive, the best shopping and dining and so much more. Beverly Hills also hides a beautiful gem that holds a lot of character and history. This hidden gem is the Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills.
Avalon is a chic boutique hotel that has a very unique layout. While other hotel properties boast being large and grandiose, Avalon has a more intimate approach.
The guestrooms are in three separate buildings and villas, all with unique and distinctive accommodations. Every single room has similar décor but the layout varies for each one, giving each room its own character. The rooms are spacious with an office area and sofas to lounge in. It is a blend of modern colors, décor and fixtures but with the Old Hollywood classiness that attracted huge movie stars in the 1950s. Stars such as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz often stayed at Avalon. Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe lived in the hotel for about three years.
The main focal point of the hotel is their legendary hourglass pool. Glistening both during the day and night, the pool draws you in. Around it are comfortable lounge chairs, private bungalows and various other seating.
Another attraction is the amazing Oliverio Restaurant led by Executive Chef Mirko Paderno. This Italian restaurant offers delicious fare, from pasta with an abundance of shaved truffles to oven-baked pizza, and an extensive wine list. You can dine indoors or outside by the luxurious pool.
So whenever you want to get away from the stress of your every day, relax by the pool or catch up with a friend, Avalon can be your quick mini oasis in Los Angeles.
