2014 marks the centenary of the founding of Beverly Hills, and to celebrate the occasion, five of the city’s top luxury hotels are each creating custom luxury suites. Called Suite 100, the selection of luxe rooms will be available for booking in the new year. The chic L’Ermitage Beverly Hills has joined with The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows, Montage Beverly Hills, The Beverly Hilton, and The Peninsula Beverly Hills for the initiative which aims to celebrate a hundred years of glamour in the iconic city which is home to many celebrities and some of the world’s most impressive luxury boutiques.
The L’Ermitage, part of the world-class Viceroy Hotels and Resorts Group, cultivates the aura of a sophisticated private club in its prestigious residential setting amongst the mansions of the rich and famous, has chosen a suitable theme for its offering. The hotel commissioned designer Ken Fulk to evoke the disco decadence of the ‘70s for its Suite 100. The suite’s walls will be lined in silver foil in homage to Andy Warhol’s famed Factory, along with high-gloss lacquer, mirror finishes and numerous orchids.
In reminiscence of the flashbulbs that once popped continuously outside Studio 54, an iPad photo booth will be set up so guests can record their 15 minutes of fame and even the closets will be stocked with vintage looks from era-appropriate fashion icons like Halston. Topping things off will be a powder room from Interview Magazine covers and a “Do Not Disturb” sign playing on Warhol's iconic silkscreen portraits.
Rates for The Era of Studio 54 - Fashion & Art Collide Suite will start at $1,914 and will include additional amenities inspired by the era. Bookings commence on Jan. 28, 2014, the city’s centennial day, for stays between March 7 and December 31, 2014.
