At Rodeo Drive luxury hotel SIXTY Beverly Hills, posh details like 400-count sheets, in-room local contemporary art, and a seriously glamorous rooftop pool make for a stay that’s decadent without feeling dated.
This Rodeo Drive-adjacent luxury hotel is unabashedly upscale—it’s literally located next to a Ferrari showroom—but the SIXTY’s vibe remains unstuffy due to fresh decor and some seriously stellar service. The lobby is a heady mix of Persian rugs, smoked glass and leather furniture that evokes the living room of a disaffected rock star; the rooms themselves follow a more streamlined aesthetic, though they, too, boast opulent details such as marble countertops, flat-screen TVs, and Maison Margiela bathrobes. As is fitting for such chichi digs, SIXTY’s service is top-notch: the hotel’s concierge is attentive, friendly and quite possibly the only entity in town who can squeeze you into Bouchon last minute on a weekend. Along with the usual perks, like free wifi and high thread count linens, SIXTY also offers tony amenities including twice daily maid service and on-demand shoe shines. While the hotel’s business center and conference room is a nod to work travelers, the SIXTY truly shines when it comes to leisure. The rooftop pool offers robust views of the city day and night, and the adjoining bar is the place to live out all Entourage fantasies.
Location: SIXTY Beverly Hills is supremely walkable for tourists and boutique shoppers looking to spend some time (and some serious cash) on Rodeo Drive. If you manage to burn yourself out on Gucci and Fendi, the beaches of Santa Monica and the nightlife of West Hollywood are both a short drive away.
Bar Bouchon: If the waitlist at Bouchon is prohibitively long, make like a local and head to the bar. There, you’ll find cocktails and classic French small plates—think rabbit rillettes and saffron mussels—in an intimate, retro-but- sleek setting.
Ten Pound: Tucked away inside the Montage Beverly Hills is this venerated craft Scotch bar, which serves a dizzying array of old and rare single malts. Yes, you might break the bank on a single pour—cocktails run in the $30 range, while more prestigious brews can run upwards of $6k per bottle—but you’re guaranteed to feel glamorous while doing so.
Spago: This celeb-approved Beverly Hills haunt fuses the flavors of California, Southern Europe and Japan; the result is imaginative plates like habanero-spiked charred Spanish octopus and crispy whole roasted duck. If you can handle the hefty price tag, the California tasting menus offer expertly prepared renditions of local, seasonal ingredients.
Bouchon Bakery: Nowhere is pastry taken as seriously as it is at Thomas Keller’s famed Canon Drive bakery. Pick up a box of macarons or a fluffy-but- crisp croissant to nibble on while you shop nearby.
Getty Center: A short drive up the 405 will find you at this can’t-miss hillside museum. While the rotating exhibitions are expertly curated, the building itself is a strong contender for main attraction; sweeping architecture, stellar views and elaborate gardens make the Getty the perfect way to spend your highbrow leisure time.
Good for: With its low-lit bar, heated rooftop pool and lush, comfy bedding, SIXTY Beverly Hills offers the perfect romantic getaway for couples looking to splurge on a birthday, anniversary or honeymoon.
