The Beverly Wilshire allows guests to embrace their inner "Pretty Woman," as this is the hotel where the iconic film starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere was made. Located at the intersection of Rodeo Drive and Wilshire Boulevard, this Four Seasons hotel boasts an amazing location and incredible views, as well as Cut, Wolfgang Puck’s signature steakhouse.
The Montage of Beverly Hills is the newest hotel in the Platinum Triangle and has hosted heads of state, celebrities and well-heeled guests who love the large rooms and enjoy dining at locations such Thomas Keller’s Bouchons.
The Luxe LA on Rodeo Drive is arguably the most down-to-earth hotel in the Platinum Triangle, even though the Luxe hotel is located in the heart of Rodeo Drive. This is an ideal hotel option for those who are poised for some serious shopping, eating or business.
It doesn't get more classic than the age-old Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows on Sunset Boulevard. Some say you've never truly experienced Beverly Hills if you never stayed in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Located mere blocks away from Rodeo Drive, this hotel's legendary Polo Lounge bar is pure Hollywood history.
The Hotel Bel Air is the most romantic getaway in all of Los Angeles. This boutique hotel is located in adjacent Bel Air, nestled in among $10,000,000-plus homes. A small creek runs through the recently renovated resort, which is also home to a family of beautiful swans. Wolfgang Puck, of Spago fame, has redone the hotel restaurant with fantastic results. The Hotel Bel Air is also considered one of the grandest locations for weddings in Beverly Hills.
The Platinum Triangle has endless restaurant options, no matter what your culinary goal, be it low-carb, vegan, macrobiotic or the absolute best cuisine that money can buy, you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Platinum Triangle.
Xi’An is an affordable and healthy Chinese restaurant, great for lunch and dinner, and is very close to all of the action along Rodeo Drive.
Mulberry Street Pizza on Canon Drive has thin crust, East Coast style pizza, complete with a copy of today's New York Post to read. There is also a location on South Beverly Drive.
Declaring Spago as the best lunch in Beverly Hills, is a claim we don’t make lightly, but when Wolfgang is holding court (as he does most days), this Beverly Hills classic is as good as it gets. The wine list is to die for, the menu is classic California fusion and the service is the standard that all top restaurants should exemplify.
Bouchon, imported right from the Napa Valley has come to the doorstep of the Platinum Triangle. Award-winning super-chef Thomas Keller's French Bistro, is located in the Montage Hotel; you can't lose at a restaurant that safely boasts "the best French fries in the world" (they aren't wrong).
Nic’s Martini Bar, well renowned as Larry Nicola's vodka-tasting bar is the hippest spot for a martini in the Platinum Triangle, but you must do a shot of exotic vodka in the below freezing “vod box”. Rest assured, they have a faux fur coat and hat for you. Their "Rat Pack" fantastic menu woos some while others like their "spa menu."
The Peninsula is an Asian-based boutique chain of hotels is famous for Five-Star (AAA), Five-Diamond (Mobil Guide) service. The hotel is classic luxury, with a rooftop pool that overlooks Century City and its cozy dark wood-walled bar is the perfect place to enjoy an exotic glass of champagne or thirty-year-old single malt scotch by the glass.
Beverly Hills' Platinum Triangle offers choice jewelers like Geary's (specialists in Rolex and Patek Philippe), Van Cleef and Arpels, De Beers, Tiffany's, Harry Winston, Graff and many others.
