BEL AIR (CBSLA) — Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and his entourage have booked the entire Four Seasons Hotel for their stay in Los Angeles — every room for three nights.
Salman is in town to talk movies with the heads of the major studios, including industry heavyweights such as Disney CEO Bob Iger, Rupert Murdoch, and Brian Grazer, according to The Wrap.
Rooms at the five-star hotel start at around $600 per night. There are 285 rooms total, and the presidential suites go for $10,000 and up nightly.
Government ministers and investors will hold a summit at the Four Seasons to develop their entertainment industry. All other guests must check out by Tuesday morning.
Fox mogul Rupert Murdoch is reportedly hosting a dinner for Salman at his Bel Air home tonight.
This is the prince’s first trip to L.A. and comes a few months after Saudi Arabia confirmed that it would be lifting its 35-year ban on public cinemas.
The prince has been looking to open up new forms of industry such as entertainment, instead of relying on the kingdom’s main moneymaker — oil.
