It should surprise no one that I was once that girl in the sorority house who couldn’t keep a secret to save her life. Well, this is another one of those times, but thankfully I’m wearing lululemon at a coffee shop and not Greek letters at a fraternity house, and you my friend, will surely benefit from this particular secret spillage.
I recently ran across one of the best kept and literal secrets in the travel industry and what better place for a secret rendezvous than Beverly Hills, just steps away from the coveted location of Rodeo Drive, and everyone’s favorite zip code of 90210?
Crescent Hotel: The Perfect Hotel Stay in Beverly Hills
Everything about the Crescent Hotel is perfect, right down to each of the individually decorated rooms with teal accent colors and earth tones adorned with peacock feathers or butterflies to the hallway chandeliers, which guide you to your room. The entire hotel has a 1920’s Hollywood glam look and feel, which is the perfect stay for any trip to the lovely Beverly Hills.
Top Secret Deal for Our Travel Insiders!
The secret is, that out of the 35 total rooms in the historic and refreshingly renewed property, there are two incredibly special rooms. Special how, you ask?
For starters, they are ONLY $99/night. These two rooms, dubbed “itty-bitty” are very small, almost like a tiny-sized NYC apartment, totaling 130 square feet (yes, including the bathroom). But if you’re visiting the illustrious zip code for shopping, imagine all the extra spending money you’ll have by staying in one of these rooms? (Of course all the other rooms at the Crescent Hotel are still reasonable with nightly rates of $159-249.)
While it could very well be considered the most geographically desired broom closet in the western hemisphere, it’s a steal and will surely make your stay that much more memorable. And you needn’t worry if you packed a lot or plan to do a lot of shopping, as the hotel will store your bags at no charge in a safe and convenient location. Remember, this is such a top-secret deal for travel insiders that the itty-bitty rooms are not available on your typical booking engines or even online, you must call to book one of these rooms. They’re very popular with repeat guests (including myself), so call today: 310.247.0505 or US Toll Free 877.374.0505
Things to do on Girls Getaway in Beverly Hills
Aside from the glam shopping around every corner, and the dozens of bistros, restaurants and bars, the Crescent Hotel is also just a quick drive to many other great things in the city, one of my favorites was hiking at Runyon Canyon Loop (aka the Heart-of-Hollywood hike), which was super easy to find thanks to the courteous and knowledgeable directions from the front desk. That was another aspect that stood out about this hotel with their incredible layered history – each time I needed something from the staff, I received personalized services and conversations. Nothing stuffy and chain-like from the Crescent Hotel.
The hotel also offers guests complimentary warm turnovers and coffee for breakfast, complimentary access to Equinox Fitness Club, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi. Guests can also rent iPads or Macbooks during their stay as another luxurious amenity.
The Crescent Hotel is the perfect stay for travelers who prefer a low-key hotel experience while still enjoying the distinctive and memorable experiences that make each and every vacation unique.
This intimate historic hideaway, located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Beverly Hills, was originally built in 1927 and artfully renovated earlier this year (and subsequently home to some high-powered, high-fashion magazine photo shoots). Crescent Hotel’s original art deco architecture embodies old world influence with modern luxury, and is the perfect 90210 stay – with or without Brandon Walsh and Dylan McKay.
