The SLS Hotel Beverly Hills Reveals a New Look and New Group Option

Just in time for its 10-year anniversary, the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills has unveiled a reimagined look that includes a complete redesign of all 234 guest rooms and 63 suites, as well as new group offerings. Small groups can enjoy an exclusive and customizable hotel-within-the-hotel experience that centers around the new updated private terrace. The 11-room, two-floor configuration can accommodate small receptions, cocktail functions, activations and gifting suites with potential for integrated branding throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Groups have access to four terrace rooms, including two spacious Storyseeker Suites for seamless indoor/outdoor flow. Overlooking the private terrace are three balcony suites, two additional Storyseeker Suites and two premier rooms, each suitable for VIP guest rooms or space for additional activations.

For larger groups, the hotel offers full buyout options and more than 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, including the grand Albert Ballroom and Foyer, versatile Garden Room and Terrace, rooftop Altitude pool deck and the culinary wonderland that is The Bazaar by José Andrés.

New group activities include “paella on the terrace”—a private event on The Bazaar’s airy Bar Blanca terrace featuring a bar specializing in Spanish cocktails, modern and traditional Spanish tapas, selection of freshly made paella and A/V capabilities for presentations, acoustic musical performances and DJ integration.

“Destination Discoveries” is a guided tour of the adjacent West 3rd Street neighborhood with its quintessential LA shops, galleries, cafes and boutiques and opportunities to interact with local artists and artisans.

“Bazaar Cocktail Flight” is a collaborative introduction to the magic behind The Bazaar’s signature mixology program. Guests will try their hand at a centuries-old recipe by Ben Franklin, the modern technique of infusing liquid nitrogen and the art of mixing the ultimate gin and tonic. 

Meeting groups explore with Airstream lodging and new meeting space at AutoCamp Yosemite.

 

Downtown Los Angeles has gone through a renaissance these past few years with a staggering number of hotels and restaurants opening or reinventing themselves. Among the most vibrant of these properties is The Mayfair Hotel, which brings a history, authenticity and creative energy that feels distinctly DTLA. The Mayfair was first established in 1926 and was the tallest building west of the Mississippi when it opened.

 

California is one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, but a startling number of residents aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, one in eight Californians struggles with hunger. The situation is especially startling for children; one in five is food insecure.

Hunger is not a supply problem, it’s a logistics challenge. And the meetings and events industry is full of logistics-minded people who are in a position to chip away at it.
