SLS HOTEL BEVERLY HILLS
For its 10th anniversary, the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills underwent a $22 million renovation by Dakota Development and Avenue Interior Design.
The 234 guest rooms and 63 suites pay homage to Philippe Starck’s original scheme of oversize mirrors, playful wallpapers and singerie with rich neutrals, artful touches like needlepoint pillows, and white-oak and Carrara marble furnishings.
Rainfall showers and generous tubs made bathrooms more luxurious. Somni, the 10-seat tasting restaurant from chefs Jose Andres and Aitor Zabala, is a study in simplicity watched over by colorful animal busts by pop surrealist artist Okuda San Miguel–a vibrant reminder that the hotel’s waggish spirit remains.
