Relive Old Hollywood glamour at the newly renovated Beverly Hills Hotel. "The Ultra-Presidential Suite is brand new and is a celebrity favourite for a super VIP home away from home experience," says Marc Hagins, Partner, Music and Commerce.

Another great choice is the brand new Bel-Air Hotel, which is located in the exclusive enclave of the Bel-Air Estates. If you're more into the ultra contemporary ambiance opt for the Mondrian Hotel or the Peninsula.
