Tucked in a secluded residential neighborhood adjacent to Los Angeles' most famous restaurants, shopping and cultural attractions, Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills was originally built in 1949 as the Beverly Carlton. Once a home-away-from-home for mid-century celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the hotel got a second life and its current name when it was revamped in 1999. Today, the property comprises three unique structures - the Olympic Building, Beverly Tower and Cañon Building - and offers a full-service wellness studio, an hourglass pool and patio with outdoor dining, and the chef-driven Oliverio Restaurant and Bar.
This fully air-conditioned hotel comprises a total of 86 rooms spread over 5 floors and welcomes guests in the foyer with 24-hour reception, safe, cloakroom and lift access. Further facilities include a bar and the ever-popular ""Blue on Blue"" restaurant. Room and laundry services can also be taken advantage of (for an additional fee) and parking is available to those arriving by car (charges apply).
