Thompson Beverly Hills Hotel | Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, California | better location IMPOSSIBLE, right on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, close to the main highlights of the city and steps away from Rodeo Drive and Beverly Drive. Thompson Beverly Hills, reflects the merging of bohemian downtown Manhattan with the manicured lawns and pristine homes of Beverly Hills.
Exquisite and Luxurious dark modernism, inspired the concept of this charming hotel. Thompson Beverly Hills is home to 107 sophisticated rooms, including 91 deluxe rooms, 14 one-bedroom suites, a signature Thompson Suite, and an eighth-floor Penthouse Suite.
80’s sleek dark styled rooms featuring same tone marble bathrooms. 24-hour Concierge and Room Service. State-of-the-art Fitness Center. The room amenities are signature of Co Bigelow.
Thompson Suites are great, following the same style of the rest of the rooms, but with the plus of an extra living room/open kitchen and a very comfortable and spacious bathroom with shower and bathtub.
The design of the Thompson Beverly Hills is very modern and to the detail as Dagmar Neo – Director of Sales explained to me. We consider to be very open minded. For example, do you know what the metal rail on the headboard of you bed is ? she asked. And I immediately knew what she was about to say… To grab from when you are having sex.? I replied. Exactly she said. Good for Thompson Hotels. !!! (not only that… but also in the amenities cabinet you have several brands of condoms).
Roof top with 360 panoramic views of Los Angeles, where you can glance at the Hollywood sign while enjoying your morning breakfast or you evening cocktail seating at one of their cabanas. Heated rooftop Swimming Pool. (exactly where I am seating right now while writing and sharing this post).
Former Bondst (same as in New York), soon to be reopened as a new restaurant, the Japanese eatery features 80 seats, an outdoor terrace, sushi bar, and the exclusive second floor LOUNGE with a private library alcove. ABH (Above Beverly Hills), a bi-level roof deck, also serves signature cocktails, sushi, and appetizers poolside.
I recommend Thompson Beverly Hills after my stay there this January 2011. Gay friendly and welcoming, professional staff and great location. Thompson Group also counts with hotels in Chicago, New York City, Washington DC and Toronto.
