Sneak Peek: Hotel Bel-Air

The Dorchester Collection, a luxury hotel brand with eight properties from Los Angeles to London, is adding the famed Hotel Bel-Air to its five-star repertoire. Reopened this month after a two-year restoration, the hotel added 12 new accommodations, a fitness studio, a restaurant helmed by Wolfgang Puck, and a 4,134-square-foot spa with seven treatment rooms and a private couples section. In total, the 103 guest rooms and suites, starting at a special opening rate of $505 per night, feature sliding glass walls, outdoor fireplaces, and private infinity pools. Specialty suites starting at $2,000 a night include the Grace Kelly Suite and the Presidential Suite, which offers private dining for 10, a chef’s kitchen, study, great room with a grand piano, and private pool set in an intimate Spanish courtyard.
