Los Angeles, California
Mr. C Beverly Hills Hotel
Old World L.A.
What it is
A high-gloss tower owned by the Cipriani restaurateur family, with Deco-era inspired rooms and al fresco pool.
What it isn't
Overly colorful. In lieu of an ersatz version of SoCal, you’ll find black and white interiors as classically tailored as the tuxedos at the Academy Awards.
What we think
La-la-land gets a buttoned-up remake to wow silver screen starlets and latter day celebs alike at Mr. C Beverly Hills Hotel. Here, suites are worthy of a close-up: finely honed retreats with teak flooring, five-fixture bathrooms (complete with deep soaking tubs), and twin private balconies for taking in the cityscape from the tenth and eleventh floors, not to mention outsized floor plans starting at 755 square feet. But we’d wager that even up-and-coming actor types would feel pampered in the starter “studio” category, thanks to similarly indulgent amenities and square footage (460 square feet). Every single room in the hotel is tricked out with Casa Rovea bed linens, carrera marble-lined bathrooms with rain showers, and Italian-made furniture. Here, quality counts.
You're here because
You love painting the town red, so any offering from the Cipriani empire—which started in Venice, Italy, in 1931 with Harry’s Bar on Piazza San Marco—makes a natural fit. Plus: the menu at the restaurant at Mr. C includes the original bellini cocktail, invented at Harry’s.
Plenty of hotels in Lalaland have pools, of course, but none are like this: a 4,500-square-foot teak deck that calls to mind a yacht bobbing beyond the waters of Malibu. You wave your hand at the Pool attendant— “A cheese plate, chilled towel and pitcher of bellinis, please!”—and sink happily into your plush gray day bed. This is living.
Restaurants & Bars
Mr. C’s cuisine is driven by a team of experienced chefs who practice traditional, Italian cooking, offering a variety of classic, simple dishes that can be enjoyed morning to night. This Beverly Hills restaurant features a selection of grilled specialties, signature pizzas and garden fresh salads as well as some traditional Cipriani classic dishes such as their signature Carpaccio and baked tagliolini.
Mr. C Lobby Bar
In Beverly Hills proper, a mile from the glitterati mecca of Rodeo Drive. LAX is a mere 10 miles away, and only 25 minutes... on a good day.
