Winner of the Best of Beverly Hills Golden Palm Awards – Business Excellence
At the heart of The Peninsula’s success is a commitment to offering innovative and extraordinary amenities for all its guests. From the signature amenities – like ‘Peninsula Time’ flexible check-in and check-out and beloved monogrammed pillowcases – to exciting programming with leading brands like Rolls-Royce, the award-winning hotel continually evolves its services to meet the demands of today’s luxury.
Resembling a gracious private residence built in the classic Renaissance style, The Peninsula Beverly Hills is an exclusive oasis within walking distance of the famous Rodeo Drive. The Peninsula Beverly Hills is the only AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five Star rated hotel in Southern California since 1993. This iconic luxury hotel offers 195 elegantly appointed rooms with 38 suites and 17 private villas, nestled among lush tropical gardens. Home to the recently remodeled Belvedere, the Hollywood’s power dining favorite and perennial AAA Five Diamond-rated restaurant offering Mediterranean cuisine, The Peninsula Beverly Hills also features The Living Room, where the legendary Peninsula Afternoon Tea is served daily. The award-winning leader in beauty and wellness, Peninsula Spa and The Roof Garden, is a refined resort oasis featuring a swimming pool, private cabanas, and outdoor cocktails and dining. Managing Director Offer Nissenbaum has been a leader in the field of luxury hospitality since early in his career and brings his unique style of customer-focused leadership to The Peninsula Beverly Hills. He is a staunch believer in a collaborative team approach to hotel management, one based on a culture of mutual respect among staff members and a focus on employees as well as guest passion points. This year, Nissenbaum and his team celebrated the hotel’s 25th Anniversary with a variety of offerings for locals and visitors alike. “We wanted to thank the local community and our valued guests for their support throughout the years,” says Nissenbaum. “And equally important, we want to celebrate our outstanding team who is essential to the DNA of the product – they are the soul of the hotel and the reason why our guests keep returning.”
The Peninsula Beverly Hills is home to three iconic dining outlets and an upscale bar. Led by Executive Chef David Codney, each venue features a menu with a strong focus on locally sourced ingredients of the highest quality. Locality hits close to home, as many dishes feature ingredients harvested from the hotel’s own rooftop garden. Sustainably caught seafood, sourced from local fisherman and purveyors, is a priority for Codney who is a staunch advocate of responsible sourcing. The result is a dining experience that reflects the highest standard of luxury in a sustainable and responsible way.
At the heart of the property’s enviable return-guest rate – over 70% of the hotel’s guests are returning guests – is a world-class team committed to providing every guest with a comfortable and memorable experience. The Peninsula’s concierge team led by Chef Concierge James Little, includes 5 members of the exclusive Clef d’Or concierge organization. In May, the Beverly Hills CVB recognized Room Service Lead Order Taker Leticia ‘Letty’ Arce as one of Beverly Hills’ Faces of Travel during National Travel and Tourism Week. Executive Pastry Chef Stephanie Boswell was celebrated in Modern Luxury Angeleno’s annual food issue for creating one of the 50 Finest Things in Los Angeles’ Food Scene citing The Belvedere’s popular Faberge Egg dessert. Rounding off the list of accolades and accomplishments, Managing Director Offer Nissenbaum was invited to sit on Forbes’ Travel Guide Standards Advisory Committee and is the incoming Chairman of the Beverly Hills CVB.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills continues to set the standard for excellence in the field of luxury hospitality. The property is proud to maintain the impressive ranking of the top performing hotel in Beverly Hills in terms of RevPar as well as #1 rated hotel in Beverly Hills on TripAdvisor. Last year, the property was voted Favorite Hotel in Beverly Hills in the Beverly Hills CVB National Travel and Tourism Week Travel poll. The hotel will also be awarded ‘Best Hotel in the United States’ for the seventh year in a row at Global Traveler’s coveted GT Tested Reader Survey Awards.
