Our Private Tour Arrives in Style at the Beverly Hills Hotel
The famous Beverly Hills Hotel, affectionately known as the Pink Palace, on Sunset Boulevard is very much a home to Hollywood history. Movie stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood all the way through today and other entertainment industry royalty, as well as real royalty from around the globe, make this hotel and its private bungalows a regular stop when they need hotel accommodations in Los Angeles. The grand opulence (California style) is evident as you turn off the wide boulevard across from the Will Rogers Memorial Park into the short driveway leading to the porte-cochère and an able crew of valets to see to the parking of your vehicle. Just for the fun of it the hotel has set up a red carpet arrival for guests and visitors. Our guests on their private tour of Los Angeles knew immediately how to walk the carpet, stop and turn in their light and pose for their tour guide/paparazzi so they would have a wonderful set of pictures to go in their tour photo album. After the photo session we headed in for lunch at the fabulous Polo Lounge. We had talked up the restaurant’s McCarthy Cobb Salad. Who would we be dining with today? Which stars and dignitaries would be at surrounding tables and booths?
