California style with modern twists
The style of this sophisticated suite takes its inspiration from the best of mid-century California style and mixes it with modern twists.

Specialty features abound for creating both interior and al fresco experiences unlike any other.
Location, Location, Location
Tucked away in one of world’s most exclusive neighborhoods, this enchanting hotel hideaway is within easy reach of LA’s most popular destinations but a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The Presidential Suite has its own discrete access, so guests staying here can bypass the hotel’s main entrance. Having settled in, the private Spanish-style courtyard retains guests’ exceptional level of privacy, making this suite a popular choice for many famous faces. One celebrity liked it so much they put in on their album cover.
Elegance at every turn
Offering the relaxed sophistication of a private Bel Air home, the décor of this very special suite includes touches of leather, dark wood and velvet. The first room that greets you on arrival is a spacious living room, creating a statement with a grand piano and over-sized monolithic fireplace. This space is complemented by an adjacent dining room designed to comfortably seat up to ten people, making it a great place for entertaining. Just off the dining room is a self-contained chef’s kitchen and a wet bar. A light and spacious bedroom with access on to the patio, and a large marble bathroom, complete the allure.
Dive right in
Having highlighted the many features of this suite we’re yet to explore the main focal point, this is undoubtedly the full-sized outdoor swimming pool and enclosed garden patio. Surrounded by sumptuous loungers, the private infinity pool can’t fail to beckon you. So whether you’re a sunrise swimmer or enjoy an afternoon dip or, you can make a splash at any hour of the day. This picturesque setting has hosted many a famous party but is best known for its tranquillity.
When it’s time to dry off and luxuriate in an LA state of mind, an additional patio provides an unforgettable setting for coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening. Complete with an outdoor Jacuzzi, fireplace and spacious seating and dining areas, this magical enclave offers ultimate seclusion in the heart of the canyon.
A hidden sanctuary amongst the wooded hills, untouched by the clamour of life beyond the gates of Bel-Air. The most quintessentially private and exclusive hotel, delivering low-key elegance since 1946.
