Extravagant Bungalows to Debut at The Beverly Hills Hotel
The new bungalows will be the "largest, most prestigious suites in Los Angeles," the landmark hotel says. Each will offer 5,500 square feet of living space indoors and out.
Yes, that's much bigger than most houses, though the hotel says in a press release that the bungalows "resemble individual homes" in prestigious Beverly Hills.
The suites will have a private entrance, a high-ceiling Great Room with dining room and living room and a professional-equipped kitchen. They will be done up in custom-designed furnishings and "collected pieces" from the 1920s to the modern day.
Each of the suites will have three bedrooms with luxurious bathrooms featuring freestanding tubs and steam showers. There will be limestone fireplaces in every room (except the bathrooms).
Outdoors, guests will find a private lap pool and gardens, a fireplace, dining area, and the only private outdoor showers in Los Angeles, the hotel says. And the showers will be big enough for two.
Of course, those in the top suites will also have access to the hotel's iconic pool, open to all guests.
The new suites are the first addition to the "Pink Palace" in five years.
Reservations are being accepted for arrival beginning Feb. 11, 2011 for the first Presidential Bungalow, with the second opening a month later.
