journeyPod is your guide to luxury travel around the world. We give you VIP access to the hippest hotels, hottest nighlife and coolest restaurants.
Celebrated throughout the world as a destination offering the very best in hotels, shopping, dining and service, no city caters to its guests more indulgently than Beverly Hills: the ultimate playground, a place for people who enjoy and appreciate the best of everything.
It not all glitz and glamour, however, there is truly something for everyone. If quiet is your cup of tea, you'll find Beverly Hills a welcoming, walkable village. journeyPod recommends a mimosa at Coupa Cafe on Canon Drive. Or if your budget doesn't include Prada, you'll find retails store such as Anthropologie and Banana Republic on the two streets running parallel to Rodeo Drive. Whatever your pleasure, the very best in restaurants, hotels, spas and services call Beverly Hills home.
Looking for a place to stay? The Avalon Hotel, and The Beverly Hilton are two places you cannot go wrong hotel-wise. But the journeyPod pick is The Luxe Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Afterall, it is the only hotel on Rodeo Drive, and it has the only outdoor cafe on Rodeo as well. The staff at this four-star gem are incredible. Conrad, the assistant manager seemed to always know what I wanted before the words even escaped my mouth. Now that is customer service! And Leah at the front desk was able to make my Jeep appear from valet within seconds ---on repeated occasions!
Grab many credit cards, walking shoes, and a pretty smile because we are going to the 90210! On the way, let's listen to Jason Brock and his song, Beverly Hills.
