Bel Age to Be Reborn as the London West Hollywood

L.A.'s former Bel Age Hotel, perched above the Sunset Strip, will reopen in April as the London West Hollywood, a sister property to the London NYC, which opened in Manhattan just over a year ago. Owner LXR Luxury Resorts describes the completely redone California hotel as "a unique fusion of Anglo-European attitude with iconic Hollywood style," and says the property will offer "a luxury experience filled with both functional and sensory elements."

The 223 guest suites will be redecorated with custom furnishings and details such as embossed leather, velvet upholstery, bleached oak, hand-cut mosaic tiles, fine Italian linens and high-tech amenities. The hotel will have a rooftop pool and spa and a signature restaurant by chef Gordon Ramsay. Interior design of the London West Hollywood is by the David Collins Studio, which has worked on the London NYC, Nobu Berkeley Street, Claridge's and the National Gallery.

"The London West Hollywood will introduce a new era of haute living and dignified glamour to a hip and high-profile neighborhood perched within the enclave of the Hollywood Hills," said Jean-Jacques Pergant, co-president of LXR. Visit www.thelondonwesthollywood.com. (AO)
