RESERVE

There’s something to be said for a go-to destination where ordering your “usual” gets a nod of recognition. And yet, it’s led by serious chef. At Chi Chi restaurant, Jason Moffitt’s fresh, balanced California menu matches your desert mood, be it health or indulgence or somewhere in between. Here, we add rum to our coconuts. That’s simply how we lunch.

THE AVALON STORY

In 1999, we transformed a forgotten architectural gem on a quiet corner of Beverly Hills into an exciting boutique hotel we called Avalon. Our very first property sparked two decades in hospitality and design, including our sister resort in the magical desert of Palm Springs.

Avalon flows with what we adore about creating, running, and staying in small luxury hotels. Both share fresh perspectives on mid-century revival and modern design. Both are comfortable with the paradox of friendly glamour…of a hideaway right here and now.
