Waldorf Astoria to Debut in Beverly Hills

Pierre-Yves Rochon creates luxury hotel’s interiors

Developers of the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills in California have offered a sneak peek inside the new luxury hotel. Slated to debut June 1 at the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards, the 170-key property will feature interiors by noted Parisian interior design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon (PYR). The 12-story hotel—whose exteriors are by Gensler and PYR parent company Perkins+Will—also marks the Hilton brand’s first new build on the West Coast.

“Modern elegance is the signature look we have created for the soon-to-be iconic Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills,” says Rochon, PYR’s namesake founder. “By using richly upholstered furniture in soothing tones of celadon, taupe and white, accented by spectacular pieces of bespoke art works, we have created an environment for travelers that is both sophisticated and relaxing.”

That aesthetic will be reflected in the hotel’s triple-height lobby, which will feature a contemporary art deco look, hand-painted murals, custom Strass crystal chandeliers, Lalique installations and an array of other artworks.

The hotel’s accommodations— consisting of 119 deluxe rooms and 51 suites—will overlook the Hollywood Hills or the urban canyon of Century City. Each will be decked out with floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto oversized private balconies. On the hotel’s third level, Villa suites will open onto private garden terraces.

Owned by Alagem Capital Group and clients of Guggenheim Partners, the hotel will join the luxury brand’s portfolio of 26 hotels and resorts upon its debut.
