The SLS is a luxury boutique hotel in Beverly Hills. I go there often to eat at The Bazaar, or have some drinks at Bar Centro. Everything is innovative, playful, and modern. The unique design of the SLS is all thanks to world-renowned interior designer, Philppe Starck.
Philippe Starck designed the guest rooms with soft neutral colors and lighting, and custom made modern furniture. 7 of the 61 luxury suites feature en suite gym equipment for privacy during workouts! For those who prefer a full gym, SLS does have a 24-hour fitness center available on site.
The Ciel Spa was designed with warm, white tones. There are 6 spa rooms with iPods at every bed so you can listen to relaxing music while you get a massage from one of their amazing massage therapists. Couples should check out the romantic couples suite, which features 2 side by side soaking tubs.
The Altitude Pool Deck is for hotel and Ciel Spa guests only. Don’t worry about the LA party crowd taking over the pool on the weekends – only hotel guests get to enjoy the amazing views of Beverly Hills, private cabanas, chaise lounges, plunge and reflecting pool, Pool Concierges and Valets, and creative cocktails and food by Jose Andres.
One of the biggest draws to SLS is The Bazaar. With interior design by Philppe Starck and food by Jose Andres, you can’t go wrong. The inspiration for the design of the restaurant was a modern, European “Indoor Piazza.” The great thing about The Bazaar is that it is separated into four sections: Bar Centro, Rojo y Blanca, and Patisserie. Guests can experience each section and keep everything on the same bill – very convenient.
Bar Centro is the bar/lounge area right inside the La Cienega entrance. Bar Centro features high tables, huge mirrors, lounge tables, and private tables encase in mirrored walls.
Rojo y Blanca are the 2 sections of the restaurant. Rojo’s setting and menu are inspired by more traditional Spanish tapas. Blanca is the more modern and adventurous section that also has an outdoor terrace. Andres has combined molecular gastronomy with traditional Spanish tapas to create a unique and luxurious dining experience. Ask for the tasting menu if you really want to be blown away!
Patisserie is a European inspired dessert bar adjacent to Bar Centro. The open kitchen displays plenty of delicious looking desserts, which you can eat at the tables next to Regalo.
Regalo is SLS’s take on the hotel gift shop. They have showcased luxury products from Assouline, Baccarat, D.L&Co. and Kiki de Montparnasse museum-style in glass cases. It’s fun to browse while you’re waiting for your dinner, drinks or dessert.
Tres is SLS’s brunch/lunch option. Modern, white, luxurious decor and a delicious buffet, à la carte, and tea service make this a really fun place to go on the weekend!
SLS also features plenty of guest-only rooms, lobbies, and entrances, so even though SLS is popular with Angelinos, guests can still feel a sense of exclusivity and privacy.
Guest Services at the SLS are definitely ahead of the curve, as far as most hotels are concerned. They even have an app, called GoSLSHotel, where guests can send service requests from remote locations! They also have a Pillow Particulars menu, concierge, room service, luxury house cars available for transport, and business center. Also, as guests of the SLS, you will have preferred treatment at SBE restaurants, nightclubs, and lounges throughout Los Angeles.
