Hollywood’s most luxurious hotels, spas and beauty salons are getting ready for the biggest event of 2017, the Oscars on 28 February. So whether you’re coming to town to enjoy the event, or to people-watch, to attend Oscar viewing parties, or Oscar after-parties, Baroque Travel takes a look at a few of the most exclusive offerings available this year.
W Los Angeles, West Beverly Hills
This iconic LA hotel offers a very exclusive Award Season package to those who can afford it. If you’re not invited to the actual event, the hotel is happy to provide a venue for you and 20 of your friends for a viewing party, the exclusive 1,350-square meter Extreme Wow Suite’s private gold screening room! Of course, only one person can hire this stunning suite on Oscar night, but if you would like to do the Oscars in the ultimate style, then why not book your stay now? Aside from accommodation in the suite, you will enjoy a fully hosted viewing party (which starts off with cocktails at the hotel’s famous restaurant STK). The package includes gowns from Rent the Runway and hair done for the event for you and all 20 guests, a fridge stocked full of Veuve Clicquot bubbles, a private bartender during the event, late-night snacks delivered from W’s famous restaurant, STK, famous for their burgers and fries, not to mention an oxygen treatment the following morning at the hotel’s stunning Bliss Spa.
The Beverly Hilton
During Awards Season (which starts with the Golden Globes in January), this stunning hotel is always packed with stars and celebrities who prefer to stay in the Penthouse Collection rooms located on the 8th floor of the Wilshire Towers, which is home to 16 exclusive luxury suits ranging in size from 830 to 3,750 square feet. Each of these rooms offers a virtual concierge service so that the guests can stay in their rooms and be pampered to perfection. But if they wish, they can visit the hotel’s Aqua Star BABOR Spa and enjoy the Red Carpet-Ready facial there. For the Oscars, the Beverly Hilton offers star-studded treatment in a very special package that includes two nights accommodation, a bottle of champagne to welcome them on arrival, not to mention that very famous facial at the Spa plus a chauffeur-driven drive to and from Rodeo Drive where the event is being held.
