Bel Air may is one of California’s more well-known Los Angeles neighborhoods, no doubt partly due to Will Smith’s 90s TV show hit “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” As an affluent and wealthy area, the plush landscaping and beautiful homes makes for a memorable visit.
When traveling to Bel Air, there’s one place that you must stay: Hotel Bel-Air. This historic hotel was built in 1920 when the Alphonzo E. Bell bought 600 acres in hopes of building an upscale neighborhood. The hotel quickly became a hotspot for area young people and celebrities. Many movies have been filmed at the hotel, and well-known icons like John D. Rockefeller honeymooned at the resort. In 2011, the hotel completed extensive renovations and opened a concept restaurant by Wolfgang Puck. The hotel still reflects the beauty of its history with updates that match modern day luxuries. All 103 rooms are uniquely decorated and ornately furnished making for an elegant stay.
With an onsite spa, fitness center and several bars, there is little reason to leave the resort during your stay. When you’re tooling around the Bel Air area, be sure to drive a vehicle that will reflect your own refined taste like a 2013 C350 Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. The sleek design and expert handling makes driving around Bel Air almost as luxurious at the stay at the one of a kind resort.
