In honor of Oscar week, we decided to “go Hollywood” with this edition of Real Weddings Mini-Moon Monday.
So, where do the rich and famous camp out when visiting Tinsel Town? Look no further than a celebrity’s favorite place to duck away from flash-happy paparazzi, the Four Seasons Los Angeles. Located just a block from desirable Beverly Hills, this posh five-star property lives up to the brand name, with an extra dash of Hollywood glamour.
Known to locals for its great spa, the Four Seasons entices out-of-towners with spacious suites, alfresco dining and the promise of privacy. But expect a lot of action during award’s season, when the courtyards below are filled with stars and the people who love them.
Recommended Resort: Four Seasons Los Angeles. Southern Californian style mingles with upscale luxury at the Los Angeles outlet of the prestigious hotel chain. Location wise you can’t get much better, with posh Beverly Hills, happening Sunset Boulevard and cultured Wilshire Boulevard just moments away. The 285 guest rooms and suites all feature French doors opening to a balcony with views of the garden, city lights or Hollywood Hills. Rooms are big and nicely appointed, as are the chic bathrooms lined with top products and amenities. Take advantage of the warm Los Angeles weather by the pool with shady cabanas and enough seclusion to keep the nosiest shutterbug out of sight.
Check In: 300 South Doheny Drive in Los Angeles. 310-273-2222, fourseasons.com/losangeles.
Check Out: Culina. The Four Season’s premier restaurant, this modern Italian eatery features LA’s only crudo bar, a spacious patio, two lounges and a beautiful dining room. Latin for kitchen, Culina is a workshop of flavors. The best in Mediterranean ingredients reign here, from seafood to palatable pastas. And the fine wine flows abundantly, making for a perfect paring to a perfect meal.
Don’t Miss: If you ask a native what they love about the Four Seasons, bets are that they will say the spa. Perhaps because it’s one of the best in town. The poolside vibe is so LA, and the treatments are as amazing as the atmosphere. Try one of their celebrated massages, body treatments and facials. Or, just sit in a cabana with your mojito, get a mani-pedi and wait to be discovered.
