The Best Suites of Los Angeles’s 5-Star Hotels

There may not be another city in the world where so many of its top hotels are concentrated in such a compact area as Los Angeles. In fact, all seven hotels – the only seven hotels in the Los Angeles metro area to receive 5 stars from the Forbes Travel Guide, are in the Beverly Hills and Bel Air, with several a stones through from each other. Forbes sends undercover inspectors and pays for multiple night stays so the inspector can sample a wide variety of what the hotel has to offer using a checklist with over 900 data points. Of its 5-star hotels, Forbes says, “These are outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities.” With that in mind, in this issue we take a look at the top suites each of these top ranked Forbes hotels offers.

Forbes Travel Guide says, “One of L.A.’s most enduring icons is this stately, pale-pink Five-Star hotel on Sunset Boulevard. The Beverly Hills Hotel has been attracting guests (famous and not) since 1912, and its star power is by no means fading. While celebrities love the hotel for its luscious private bungalows (perfect for canoodling and doing whatever else stars do), the rest of us love the tropical gardens (gorgeous) and the retro-style pool (so movie-star chic). Don’t miss the scene at the famous Polo Lounge, which still buzzes with handshakes and business deals, or the new Bar Nineteen12, which has turned into a place to party with the beautiful and affluent.”
