The SLS Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Beverly Hills recently completed a redesign of the rooms and guest experience just in time for its decade milestone in November 2018. All 234 guestrooms and 63 suites sport the newly reimagined look that continues to embrace elegance, with a lighter palette and character alongside the latest in technology and modern comforts. Locally inspired guest programming, revamped Garden Terrace events space, and innovated culinary and cocktail experiences round out SLS Beverly Hills’ ten-year evolution.

“We are thrilled to debut the modern redesign of SLS Beverly Hills as we continue to create authentic experiences for our discerning travelers in this buzzing city,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection.

The room redesign by Dakota Development, Muzeo and Avenue Interior Design brings a fresh perspective to modern luxury. Oversized mirror panels and whimsical accents remain, juxtaposed with white oak, Carrara marble, and textural neutral fabrics that add to the room’s overall lighter and brighter profile.   

New elements within the guestrooms include: custom-made light boxes illuminating the hallways; Vibrant carpets; oversized abstract prints; mirror-lined walls; Handmade needlepoint pillows with classic Picasso prints; A custom-made vintage map of Los Angeles embedded on top of the media center;  

The renovation also encompasses the addition of two new suite categories: the Style Suite and the Storyseeker Suite, featuring distinct private bedroom and living areas. The 1900 square-foot Presidential Suite features four separate rooms including an expansive bedroom with an oversized closet, powder room, soaking tub, and rain shower; a study filled with a collection of L.A.-centric art and culture books; a dining room complete with a chandelier and cherry-oak dining table; and a cozy living room connected to its spacious kitchen.
