A Charlie Chaplin-inspired retreat is the latest and last of the 21 new-look bungalows to be unveiled at The Beverly Hills Hotel, breathing new life into the LA address that has provided a home-from-home for Hollywood glitterati since 1912.
New York-based interior design studio Champalimaud Design has helmed the restoration, adding particular emphasis to several ‘legendary bungalows’ that pay tribute to the notable guests who once stayed in them. As well as Charlie Chaplin’s favourite (Bungalow 9), two other bungalows decorated after the style and preferences of Marilyn Monroe and Howard Hughes were unveiled earlier this year, and the former haunts of Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor were relaunched in 2016.
Following the completion of the bungalows, work begins in earnest on The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa, which will reopen in February, marking the end of a total hotel overhaul that began back in 2012. Since then, all 208 rooms and suites have been modernised in keeping with the hotel’s iconic Southern California Art Deco style, as well as the lobby, Polo Lounge, pool cabanas and Cabana Café.
