SIXTY Hotel, Beverly Hills

The SIXTY Hotel came highly recommended I knew the popular boutique property would be nice, but once you step in the door it really hits. You’ve arrived, Beverly Hills style. Pulling into the drive, the valet quickly opening my car door I notice right away the hotel is sleek with a cosmopolitan appeal, particularly for those travelers who want to enjoy a bit of the see-and-be-seen crowd. An outpost of cool, with staff members who look like models and a clientele that is not far behind.

With affordable room rates (well for Beverly Hills standards) it’s an easy way to buy into the jet set. With chocolate wood floors and contemporary slate gray and dark accented décor, the rooms look very masculine. They’re spacious and bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows; our room came with a great view of the Los Angeles skyline.

When the door of the elevator opened to our floor I was surprised, the hallway was dark mysterious and left you intrigued. What was my room going to look like? A dark man cave?  As we entered the room, I instantly started to check out the amenities, it had a large flat-screen television, a decent-sized kitchen and living area, a soft luxurious bed, amazing furnishings, and a nicely stocked mini-bar.

After whipping up a cocktail from the mini bar, we threw our suits on and headed up to check out the pool. It’s all about the rooftop. The pool deck like our room boasted spectacular views of downtown Los Angeles. The pool is surrounded by cabanas and lounges, which were already claimed by an array of seemingly airbrushed guests. It was lunchtime and we were starving so we ordered a few more cocktails, the Chopped Veggie Salad and the Short Rib Grilled Cheese. Both were above and beyond the average poolside menu offerings. Especially the grilled cheese you will definitely be craving this meal again later…think late-night room service menu.
