Nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills is an iconic building with a palatial design. One of California’s most stunning luxury hotels, The Maybourne Beverly Hills is the kind of place people photograph even if they don’t know what it is. With a grand entrance and all the trappings of Hollywood’s golden era, you’ll feel like royalty when you stay at the Maybourne. CELEB takes a look inside the five-star hotel and its world class Presidential Suite.
The Presidential Suite
Perched at the top of the hotel and gazing out over the surrounding buildings, the Presidential Suite is a study in five-star luxury. With a mid-tone hardwood parquet floor and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in all the natural light, the Presidential Suite immediately feels like stepping out of time and into an era when everything was just a little more classy.
The suite is over 2000sqft and boasts a full-sized living room with a separate lounge area and baby grand piano. On the Maybourne’s website, the hotel is described as being inspired by the grandeur of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and it’s easy to see why. The palette of creams and golds whispers, “luxury,” and the balcony will let you gaze down upon others like a starlet from days of yore.
The suite includes a private office and a grand master bedroom with a walk-in dressing room, but the master bathroom may pull you away from the bed and breathtaking view. The bathroom is clad in cream marble with a deep and decadent tub, a steam shower and mosaic tile accents.
Sit before your own roaring fire or cook up your own meal in a kitchenette with its own butler’s pantry. The Presidential Suite is truly a step into grand luxury and you’ll feel like a pampered Hollywood superstar.
Maybourne Beverly Hills Hotel
Even if you aren’t in the Presidential Suite, the Maybourne is the kind of luxury you want when you’re staying in Beverly Hills. Built looking like a stepped Mediterranean palace and with rooms that focus on comfort and elegance, the hotel itself is a picturesque nod to the opulent and extravagant. Perched above Beverly Hills, the hotel offers a breathtaking vista overlook of the valley, all the way to the mountains on a clear day – which is most days, in Beverly Hills.
The hotel offers four dining and drinking destinations, including:
- The Terrace: An outdoor dining destination, The Terrace is a picture-perfect setting of white parasol-covered tables nestled among a topiary garden. The menu is described as, “unpretentious, yet elegant,” and offers a year-round taste of California with a vibrant and creative menu.
- The Maybourne Bar: An intimate but vibrant place to sit and have a craft cocktail, the Maybourne Bar is a mix of comfort and class.
- The Maybourne Cafe: If you want some light bites with an upscale twist, the cafe offers a blend of European cafe culture and Los Angeles fresh flair. Enjoy housemade breads in the garden or sip wine under the blue skies; the Farmer’s market-ingredient menu is sure to delight.
- The Cigar and Whiskey Bar: Cigars are making a comeback and the Maybourne has been ahead of the trend for years. With a humidor that houses more than 1,000 cigars from Central America and the Caribbean, the cigar lover in your life will be in heaven as they sip whisky from Scottish Highland reserves, Japanese distillery gems and small batch bourbons from Kentucky and Vermont.
And if it’s a spa day, you’re dreaming of, the Maybourne has you covered there too. The luxury spa at Maybourne is a full-service spa designed to be an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Beverly Hills. Wrap yourself in luxury and pampering in the soothing setting and massage away your cares, all while enjoying ecologically-responsible, vegan skincare products of course.

Sister Hotel: Maybourne Riviera
Perhaps though your heart lies elsewhere. The Maybourne Beverly Hills has several sister hotels, including Claridge’s (Mayfair, London), The Connaught (Mayfair, London), The Berkely (Knightsbridge, London), and The Maybourne Riviera.
With the other sister locations in the heart of London’s finest neighborhoods, The Maybourne Riviera stands out from the rest. Located in the Peninsula of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin in the French Riviera, The Maybourne Riviera is a gem of a five-star hotel among five-star hotels.
With a breathtaking and striking modern design and views of the Mediterranean, it’s a sight to behold. Stand on the hotel’s terrace and gaze out along the coastlines and you’ll see Italy to the east, Monte Carlo to the west, and the sea stretched out before you like a glittering blanket of azure jewels. Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is an old town, full of history. Guests can explore the medieval castle or stay in for the day and put your feet up in your luxuriously appointed accommodation.
The rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows in a soothing minimalist palette, with views you have to see to believe. The furniture and room designs all embrace a white, cream, and blue palette and flowing lines instead of jarring corners. The hotel offers four restaurants and one bar, and they all boast the flavors of the French Riviera, and out-of-this-world foodie experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
If you want the luxury of The Maybourne Beverly Hills but dream of far off lands, The Maybourne Riviera may be right up your alley.
