Tucked into Beverly Hills, this storied boutique hotel for mid-century stars like Marilyn and Desi has long been the getaway from the L.A. scene. Avalon found a second life–and its current name–when we re-imagined it as an 84-room boutique hotel in 1999. Immersed in high design and situated around a boomerang-shaped pool, patio, and jewelbox Viviane restaurant and bar, you’ll find a sincere kind of glamour: We think dining al fresco calls for a cool glass of champagne. We value the privacy of a home away from home and care that you’re well, and fed, and have endless supply of fluffy white towels. So dive in. It’s easy living. Welcome back.
