Last week, I re-posted about the legendary service of the Ritz Carlton and how much we love it. Let’s just say, the Montage Beverly Hills took a page from the Ritz Carlton book and added a new chapter on how to provide top drawer service in a way that is almost imperceptible. I saw an article in the NY Times where Alan Fuerstman, the founder of the Montage brand, is quoted as hoping to provide “gracious but humble” service – I would say they have achieved that completely. Examples are the Montage bookmark placed in the book my husband left open on the nightstand, the complimentary champagne in every room, and the chilled bottles of water placed in the car every time the valet brought it up for us. Add large size Antica Farmacista toiletries, Vosges Chocolate truffles at turndown, incredibly soft robes and towels, and a truly stunning property and you have perfection. The Montage is a block from Rodeo drive, making it an easy walking distance to world class shopping and quite a few excellent restaurants.

For a little culture, you can’t go wrong visiting The Getty.
If you want to do a studio tour, the VIP tour at Warner Brothers is the way to go.
And, just so you know…the Montage Beverly Hills and Shutters On The Beach are both Virtuoso properties. Book either of them through me and you will receive complimentary breakfast for two, an upgrade at booking for the Montage (or at check-in, if available, at Shutters), and a $100 hotel credit at Montage or $100 spa credit at Shutters.
