The Beverly Hills Hotel

A hotel resplendent in pink and green; soaked in money, romance and celebrity. Before there was a city of Beverly Hills, there was the Beverly Hills Hotel. Since opening in 1912, it has changed hands more than a dozen times (once owned by the Sultan of Brunei) and shut down twice (first during the Depression, then in 1992 for a three-year renovation). Silent-film stars like Rudolph Valentino socialized here. Ludicrously wealthy magnates like Howard Hughes signed away billion-dollar companies like TWA by the pool. Elizabeth Taylor honeymooned with six of her eight husbands in the famously private bungalows, and poolside cabanas provided Katharine Hepburn with shade and privacy.
