Iconic Hotel Bel-Air Reopens
After a two-year refurbishment, Los Angeles’ iconic Hotel Bel-Air will reopen in October.
The classic hotel – a member of the Dorchester Collection (Le Meurice in Paris, 45 Park Lane in London and The Beverly Hills Hotel in the US) – is renowned for its Spanish Colonial architecture and pink façade. Alexandra Champalimaud and Rockwell Group were behind the upgrade and were inspired by the works of architect-to-the-stars, John Woolf.
The hotel now features 12 apartment-style rooms with sweeping canyon views, outdoor decks and expansive sliding glass walls built into the adjacent hillside. The hotel also has three open-plan loft guestrooms and a spa by La Prairie. The restaurant has been handed over to celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.
