Staycations are one of my favorite ways to explore my own city. I try to do them as often as possible especially during this past year where traveling was not that easy. I just did a one night stay at L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills. It was just what I needed a little getaway to rest and rejuvenate. It is an all suite hotel, they have 116 suites that vary from single bedrooms, to 2-3 rooms. All of them are beautifully decorated and very spacious. When I choose hotels for staycations the room and amenities are very important to me because sometimes they are just one night stays and I want a place where I can really relax and feel rested so that it feels like I was on a vacation. L’Ermitage was the perfect place to do that. The location is great it’s on a quiet street that is close to all the best restaurants and shopping in LA. I already miss the hotel.
I need to start off by talking about the incredible service at the hotel. I have lived in hotels for months on end all around the world and in LA and the service at L’Ermitage is in it’s own category. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left everyone in the hotel was kind, friendly, and greeted me by my name. It made me feel at home and very welcomed. They remembered details and checked in on me in a genuine way that wasn’t intrusive. I can’t compliment the service more, it was beyond incredible. If you want to stay at a hotel that makes you feel warm and welcomed you need to come to L’Ermitage because you will get five star service.
The suites at L’Ermitage are gorgeous. I stayed in a classic suite that is spacious and so relaxing. The layout of the room and the neutral colors are inviting and calm. As soon as you step into the room you feel relaxed and at ease. My suite had a spacious sitting area, a beautiful dressing room, writer’s desk. The bathroom is marble-clad with a soaking tub. I also love that all the suites have French balconies. The linens on the king sized beds are all Frette, which are my favorite and what I have at home. The robes and slippers are also Frette. The products in the room are from Diptyque. I also love the detail of having my initials embroidered upon arrival. It’s such a nice touch that is so thoughtful. You can take your pillow case home or leave it and they will save it for you for your next visit.
One of the highlights of the suite is the dressing area. I have never had a room that has this gorgeous lighting and big mirrors. It’s the dressing room of my dreams. It’s separate from the bathroom so it makes it easy to get ready if you are with someone else in the room. It’s the perfect place to get ready in for an awards show, an event, or just a night out. The vanity has different lighting settings one of natural light, outdoor and indoor lighting. That when you are applying your makeup it will look perfect for every occasion.
Avec Nous is the hotel restaurant that I highly recommend. The food is outstanding. We started with caviar and charcuterie. I had the chicken coq au vin for my main and the flavors were incredible and cooked to perfection. It’s a great restaurant if you want to have a quiet and private meeting for lunch. For dinner it’s moody and dark, perfect for a romantic dinner. I will be back again for dinner because there are so many other dishes I need to try. You can also grab a drink at the Writer’s Bar before dinner which is what I’ll do next time I visit.
One of my favorite things is a slow morning and L’Ermitage makes your mornings feel relaxed. The menu is a California French inspired menu and they have so many delicious options. We ordered breakfast to the room and the eggs Benedict was perfection. I love that room service was excellent and I could lounge easily in the morning and eat at my leisure.
If you love laying by the pool, they have a rooftop pool that has gorgeous views of the city and hills. I love how peaceful it is up there. If you want to get out of the sun there are also private cabanas you can use. One thing I didn’t use is the fitness center and I regret it. You can also request a trainer and if you would rather workout in your room they have equipment they can bring to your room.
L’Ermitage is a great place to relax. I can’t wait to go back and stay in a different suite. They have suites that are also 2 and 3 bedrooms. If you are doing a longer stay they have rooms that have kitchenettes. So that you can really make this luxurious, cozy hotel feel like home. I also want to check out the holistic spa, they create bespoke wellness treatments made with botanical based ingredients. A spa day is perfect for any staycation or vacation. If you need a getaway that will make you feel rested and happy, then you need to go stay at L’Ermitage Beverly Hills. Thank me later.
