The Elegant but Contemporary Hotel Bel-Air, Los Angeles
Nestled on 12 acres in the Bel-Air Estates neighborhood of Los Angeles, the iconic Hotel Bel-Air is one of the most beautiful, romantic, and exclusive hotels in the world. Just opened after a two year transformation, this Spanish mission-style urban oasis wins a never-ending stream of praise for its faultless service, luxurious accommodations, and magical ambiance.
All newly renovated rooms and suites feature a new generation of design aesthetic and is reflected through different design themes from the glamorous decades of the 1930s, 40s and 50s conveyed in a fresh, youthful and elegant manner.
The famous restaurant, bar, catering and in-room dining services are managed by world-renowned Master Chef Wolfgang Puck with a menu featuring modern California cuisine with European and Mediterranean influences in a spectacular garden setting.
Now managed by the Dorchester Collection, Hotel Bel-Air continues to be a favourite retreat among high profile global influencers, Hollywood celebrities and multi-generational world travelers. Hotel Bel-Air closed in September 2009 for a two year transformation spearheaded by revered design firms Alexandra Champalimaud and Rockwell Group.
The luxury hotel now features a total of 103 guestrooms and suites, including 58 rooms and 45 suites. Guestrooms will include custom limestone floors and natural wood ceilings with rich finishes and textures melded to create a confident style that is clean, full of light and elegant. Twelve new hillside guestrooms and suites offer sweeping canyon views, expansive sliding glass walls, outdoor fireplaces and spacious decks with private spa pools.

The boutique Spa boats a serene relaxation room, unique mani/pedi space and intimate hair salon.
