If you are looking for a chic place to stay, I highly recommend HOTELCHICBLOG.com by my friend Sara Bliss. She is certainly in the know and has a great roster of movers and shakers that travel the world and report back on some of the hippest hotels on the planet.
I’m happy to be a contributor on her blog and I just reported back after my stay at the Iconic Beverly Hills Hotel. Check it out and pack your bags!
Lindsey Coral Harper Checks Into the Beverly Hills Hotel
LOVE: Everything about it!! My favorite hidden spot is the diner down stairs… I love an old-school lunch/breakfast counter.
DIDN’T LOVE: LEAVING!!

DESIGN IDEA TO CRIB: The amazing palm leaf wallpaper, Martinique, available through Hinson. I’ve used the wallpaper before, it looks great in a foyer, a hallway or a powder room. I used it in a client’s kitchen in Palm Beach and it was just what we needed, super kitsch.
ROOM HIGHLIGHTS: The rooms are really a throw back to Old Hollywood Glamour, they are spacious and the bathrooms practically have their own zip code. Each room has a well-stocked bar and very comfy bed. Only in Beverly Hills would each bathroom have a scale so you can weigh yourself…can you say Valley of the Dolls?!
ROOM TO BOOK: If you’re want to splurge, and want your privacy too go for a Bungalow…. Marilyn Monroe lived in one for years!
MUST DO: Reserve a cabana! The pool is one of the chicest places, and it just underwent a multi-million dollar renovation for the 100-year Jubilee. Also, eat lunch outside at the Polo Lounge if you want to see or be seen.
INSIDER TIP: This hotel has impeccable service. You also have every amenity available to you. There is a salon downstairs, which is great if you want a blow-out before heading out. They have a La Prairie Spa of course if you want to relax by getting a massage or facial. Between all the amenities the restaurants indoor and outdoor you are pretty much set. You really could live there!!
