A Celebrity Experience

IMG_1733A favorite spot among the wealthy, famous, and socialites a like, The Beverly Hills Hotel is where you go to ensure a WOW experience. Even after decades of service, the iconic hotel is known for its grandiose, yet personalized service and our experience was exactly that.

Upon my arrived, I was greeted by the valet and escorted through the grand foyer (where many a celebrity has passed), past the history montage celebrating 100 years, and finally to the spa, to be pampered just like a celebrity. The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa by La Prairie offers the standard variety of treatments from luxurious facials to manis and pedis to body treatments, with a touch of extravagance that makes you feel as though your walking among the clouds.

IMG_1772During my spa experience, I was able to catch up with former Buzz Bus Roadie Jasmine Samano, now Spa Manager at the Beverly Hills Hotel Spa. Currently, she is developing a series of treatments that will cater to all the aspects of your wellness; body, mind, and soul. The treatments are inspired by her Buzz Bus Tour experience at the Encore Spa in Las Vegas, NV.

As a boutique spa, the limited treatment rooms are in your favor offering you (almost) exclusive use of the spa amenities. I recommend enjoying the spa during the week to ensure limited interruption from other guests. They even have 30-minute services you can take advantage of during your lunch break…although I’d never be able to only stay for 30 minutes!

IMG_1748Once I had enjoyed my morning cup of coffee, my massage therapist Brooke assisted me in choosing my spa music for my Signature Deep Tissue Massage and La Prairie Signature Facial. Originally I was going to choose Ella Fitzgerald (it seemed fitting for the Beverly Hills Hotel), but when I told Brooke I wanted something mellow she suggested Norah Jones, which ended up being the perfect companion for my afternoon.

IMG_1739La Prairie is a well-known luxury spa line known for its cellular anti-aging treatments and products. The company is committed to providing exceptional skincare, which you can feel as its being applied. My skin from head-to-toe was as smooth as silk as I glided out of the Beverly Hills Hotel Spa.

The Spa remains a quiet gem among the bustling Beverly Hills Hotel, so next time you’re on your way to the pool make sure to stop and schedule your appointment – it’s better than the cocktails!
