Since I’m heading back to the Four Seasons Hotel
in a few days, I figured now was as good a time as any to hurry up and finish this post – almost 2 months after I started it. Better late than never, right? I DID already post about the most important part – the Jet Lag Smoothie
First, I have to say that I’m a no-frills-and-not-fancy-in-any-way kind of person, so when I found out we were staying at the Four Seasons
, I was a little overwhelmed. I had visions of snooty front desk clerks looking down their noses at my $30 suitcase and $10 sunglasses. Room service delivery men judging me in my $12 flannel pajamas from JCPenney.
What I expected and what I experienced couldn’t have been more opposite!
The Four Seasons Bevery Hills treats every single guest like they’re important. From the minute I walked through the door, I was made to feel at home. No matter how ridiculous my questions might have really been to them, they didn’t show it. Everyone was friendly and not in that fakey-butt-kissy-friendly sort of way. It was a genuine “we want you to enjoy every second of your stay here and love this hotel as much as we do!” And you could just feel that the employees ENJOYED their jobs.
A few other highlights:
The WiFi was perfect the entire trip. (this may not seem like an important thing, but it’s nearly #1 on my list for any type of travel) It was fast, and reliable the whole time.
Even just the basic rooms were spacious and the bed was heavenly. Basic is sort of a laughable description because there is nothing basic about them!
I could’ve thrown a slumber party in the closet – it was CRAZY huge.
Balcony views were incredible. If the Santa Ana winds hadn’t been blowing so fierce, I would’ve slept with those balcony doors wide open!
Room service food was AH-MAZING. And if you were starving and didn’t feel like talking a person (I’m looking at you – my friends who hate the phone), you could order via the iPad on your desk. No matter what you order, it’ll be great. The only thing you need to remember is that the ONLY drink you want is a Jet Lag Smoothie. Because I said so.
We ate downstairs at Culina one of the nights and I have been dreaming about the Spaghetti Alla Chitarra ever since. I didn’t snap any pictures but I’m going to attempt to remember it next time!
Photos aren’t the best as I only had my prime lens on and it was difficult to get really good shots without being able to zoom out. When I get back there next week, I’ll do better.
You can see the rest of the photos at the “read more” link on the bottom left.
Daytime view from the balcony.
Stunning night view from the balcony.
I can’t help it with the food shots. I’m my mother’s daughter sometimes. I just have to take photos when it looks this good and of course, dessert first. I actually was so into devouring it that I barely remembered the ice cream was over there to the right. Melting away. (Slowly since it was on ice)
This was probably one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever eaten in my life! The sausage was herbed like nothing I’d ever tasted and the tomatoes were to die for.
Just a random shot in the lobby. I took this when nobody was looking because I was afraid on that first day to look too touristy. I won’t be so afraid next week.
