Worth getting out of bed for
Step outside Sixty Beverly Hills and take advantage of the famous zip code—you’re a 90210 resident for now, after all. Stroll down Rodeo Drive and window shop at designer boutiques or splash out at the likes Celine, Salvatore Ferragamo and Christian Dior. For a change of scenery, meander through Beverly Gardens Park, home to the 12-meter ‘Beverly Hills’ sign and rose and cactus gardens perfect for an afternoon stroll. If you happen to be here during the third weekend of May or October, be sure to check out the Beverly Hills Art Show in the park running four blocks from Rodeo Drive to Rexford Drive.
If that hot SoCal weather gets to be too much, visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for an afternoon. Home to one of California’s more impressive art collections LACMA is located just two miles from the hotel. You can observe over 120,000 pieces of art including work from Diego Rivera and Pablo Picasso. With a permanent collection devoted to Hollywood vehicles and the Streetscape – an exhibit containing 30 detailed dioramas chronicling the evolution of Los Angeles – the Peterson Automotive Museum and its 150 classic rides displayed across three floors are worth a visit.
When the sun goes down, catch a show at the art deco El Rey Theatre on the Miracle Mile, a 1936 monument that now hosts local bands nightly.
