Raffles L’Ermitage

L'Ermitage

Who says size doesn’t matter? With standard rooms that rank as the largest in the city of Los Angeles (675 square feet), the Raffles L’Ermitage Beverly Hills is the business traveler’s ultimate home away from home in the 90210. In meeting the needs of their substantial business clientele, the hotel leaves little to chance. In addition to such amenities as complimentary Wi-Fi, state-of-the-art in-room technology that allows guests to control and personalize temperature, lighting, and all electronics from a single bedside remote, and use of a complimentary luxury vehicle (with a driver), every guest of the L’Ermitage receives personal business cards and stationery with personal phone and fax numbers during their stay. This luxe hotel does not nickel and dime guests with random fees for basic services like some of its competitors. All local, 800, and credit card calls are free, as is a selection of items in the hotel’s well-stocked mini-bars. Each of the hotel’s rooms boasts a business center with copier/printer/fax/scanner and four multi-line telephones in addition to a large screen TV, plus CD/DVD player with Bose speakers. Guests can unwind at the hotel’s rooftop pool or enjoy treatments at its swanky Amrita Spa. In-room spa treatments are also available for those who want to unwind in complete privacy. Finally, because the L’Ermitage is situated at the crossroads between Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, it is minutes away from a plethora of gay nightlife options as well as some of the best shopping, fine dining, and celebrity spotting Los Angeles has to offer. Rates from $419. 9291 Burton Way, Beverly Hills, CA. Tel: 310-278-3344.www.raffles.com
