A landmark property since opening in 1928, Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel is bringing a touch of the “great outdoors” to its Veranda Suite terrace with the first urban glamping experience available in Los Angeles. Accessed by the property’s original wrought iron and marble staircase, the lavish suite is the only room in the Hotel to reside on its very own floor. The studio-style suite features a 2,140 square-foot terrace with unparalleled 270-degree views of the Hollywood Hills and Rodeo Drive.
“As we approach our 90th anniversary next year, we’re exploring new, experiential avenues for guests to rediscover our iconic property,” says Regional Vice President and General Manager Ben Trodd. “Given the sweeping cityscape views and the storied, celebrity past of our Veranda Suite, we knew this would be the perfect way to embrace its glamour. We’re thrilled with the result – it’s truly the ultimate luxury glamping experience with an urban twist.
The expansive tent, which is 16 feet in diameter and more than 10 feet tall in the centre, features a queen-size bed and Four Seasons linens, and lavish furnishings including a crystal chandelier, marble lamps, fur rugs, and antique nightstands. Out on the terrace, oversized lounge furniture surround a fireplace, and outdoor dining for eight completes the glamping experience. Guests who reserve the Veranda Suite also have full access to the large, one-bedroom suite, which features a king-size bed, walk-in closet, marble bathroom and modern amenities. Available for limited time through to December 2017, Urban Glamping in the Veranda Suite is priced at $3,500.
Guests can also include an exclusive glamping tasting menu prepared on the veranda by the hotel’s Executive Chef. Starting at $185 per person, the menu features items like “Special Reserve” Ossetra Caviar and Japanese “Mishima” Ultra Wagyu Beef, in addition to custom picnic table favorites. Celebrity Chef Chris Ford will add his own personal touch during the evening with Campfire S’mores made with 24k gold leaf, Tahitian vanilla bean marshmallow, and a smoked 55% Valrhona chocolate bar paired with a vintage Champagne flight.
