Visit South Beach & Beverly Hills In Style – By Urian Booze
Coast to coast, these East-West resorts deliver the same thing: Luxury
Need a getaway? One of the luxe variety? Here are two stunner options for getting your travel on the DLXVRSN Magazine way.
A classic gem re-imagined, The Gale is a fabulous treat nestled just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean. The pioneer property made a splash back in 1941, as the first of its kind to bring tropical Art Deco to South Beach, courtesy of Architect L. Murray Dixon. Resurrected in 2012, the new and improved Gale is a breathtakingly seamless marriage of modern plush and brilliant nostalgia of the ‘40s.
The refreshed lobby is covered in imported oak and marble accents, complete with spectacular décor from the original hotel in its era of splendor. Champagne service is the standard at check-in, as a precursor to crossing the thresholds of dazzling guest rooms that boast top-of-the-line contemporary furnishings and airy private balconies bathed in white. As if the waves right down the block weren’t enough, guests can always get their sand-free agua fix a little higher up at the luxurious infinity pool, with its sweeping views of the ocean.
All in all, The Gale is a perfectly executed present-day twist on a marvelous classic.
SIXTY Beverly Hills
The West Coast certainly has its perks, and SIXTY Beverly Hills extends a hand of swanky relief after, say, a lengthy day of shopping on Rodeo Drive, just blocks away from the respite this hotel provides.
Situated in the heart of Beverly Hills near West Hollywood, the hotel’s artful details and trendy rooftop mingling spaces have made it a highly rated, people-watcher’s paradise. Nightly guests get to indulge in the deep, masculine richness of ample rooms with hardwood ebonized floors, marbled bathrooms, sumptuous linens by Sferra, and step-out French balconies. Moody minimalism sets the vibe of luxury here, only to complement the stellar views of L.A.’s surrounding hills and canyons.
SIXTY Beverly Hills takes luxury a little further with a heated rooftop pool lined in Swarovski® crystals, surrounded by six exclusive cabanas, each with its own private fireplace.
In totality, SIXTY provides a haven for lounging the day away or meeting up with friends over innovative cocktails and cuisine, defining current elegance for posh-seekers with impeccable taste.
