Beverly Hills’ exceptional new address – the Waldorf Astoria – is bringing luxury, sophistication, world-class catering and breathtaking views to “those special life moments”.
The stunning Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, which opened its doors in June 2017, instantly took its place as the most sophisticated spot for events in all of Southern California.
With its breathtaking views of Los Angeles from the rooftop to the lovely Astor Ballroom that features nearly 3,000 square feet of space, the hotel offers exactly the right venue for creating those memorable moments to share with family, friends and business associates.
Adjacent to The Beverly Hilton, at the intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards, the 12-story hotel is the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts’ first new build on the West Coast and second California property, joining the legendary Waldorf Astoria portfolio of now 29 hotels and resorts.
Owned by Alagem Capital Group and clients of Guggenheim Partners, the hotel’s 119 deluxe rooms and 51 suites are part of a world-class, Art Deco-influenced design created by renowned interior design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon, Inc (PYR).
“Waldorf Astoria’s west coast expansion is celebrated today with the opening of a new, modern icon, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, which will offer global travelers a new standard of luxury in Los Angeles,” said John T.A. Vanderslice, global head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts at the opening ceremony in June.
The second-floor, circular Waldorf Room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, elegant furniture and space for up to 50 people and the nearby glamourous Astor Ballroom seats 200 (or up to 160 with a stage and dance floor). The striking black-and-gold Art Deco-influenced Pre-Function Foyer is the perfect companion to the ballroom and offers an elegant ambiance to kick-off any event complete with a large, built-in private bar.
Each event space has been carefully curated, beginning with the overall hotel design created by legendary interior designer Pierre Yves-Rochon. The patio at Jean-Georges Beverly Hills is surrounded by lush gardens with water features, perfect for receptions with 20 to 200 guests (or seated dinner for up to 40), while the elegant private dining room at Jean-Georges Beverly Hills allows for an intimate party of up to 16 seated guests.
In addition to all hotel dining venues, the Waldorf Astoria’s world-class catering service is overseen by Michelin Star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Chef Jean-Georges and his handpicked, top-notch team of culinary experts offer his internationally renowned signature French-American cuisine, with a soupcon of South American and European flavors thrown in to the organic, seasonal farm-to-table fare and guests can work to customize event menus with the on-site staff.
