Famed and infamous, The Beverly Hills Hotel (also known as The Pink Palace) is celebrating it’s 100th year. With a legacy for luxury and a discreet staff, the hotel has been a star-filled hotspot since it was built in 1912. The 208 room hotel includes the iconic Polo Lounge restaurant and a collection of bungalows that have welcomed the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, John Lennon and so many more. Let’s take a look at some of it’s storied history!
Faye Dunaway had the pool opened up after hours so she could practice the swim for Mommie Dearest.
The exterior was on the cover of Hotel California, by the Eagles.
Howard Hughes bought a bungalow and lived there, on and off, for 30 years. He also once left his convertible parked outside for 2 years–long enough for the tires to go flat and plants to begin to grow inside of it.
Marilyn Monroe stayed there while filming Let’s Make Love.
Of course, the most tawdry bits of gossip have stayed hushed up, which is why the Hotel is still a favorite amongst today’s stars. If you want to take part in the celebrations, which will include special hospitality and spa packages, signature drinks, a keepsake book and more, visit beverlyhillshotel.com for info.
