Beverly Hills Hotel’s Rankings
This hotel offers a step back in time, and while the prices are steep, the experience is guaranteed to be fantastic for the whole family. After pulling up to this “old Hollywood” pink stucco landmark, the family will want to rest up in one of the available secluded bungalows. You can let the kids run around the palm tree-lined grounds before diving into the gargantuan pool, complete with brilliantly striped, signature cabanas and sun loungers. Music is piped underwater (you don’t get that everywhere) and the McCarthy salads (a spin on the Cobb) and French fries served poolside can’t be beat. You’ll also need to stop by the Fountain Coffee Room in the basement, where grilled-cheese sandwiches and milkshakes are served at an old-fashioned soda fountain.
Rates start at $445
