Montage Beverly Hills Debuts in Celebrated 'Golden Triangle'

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

   The First New Luxury Property Built In Beverly Hills In More Than 16 Years 

                              Opens November 17 


    Alan J. Fuerstman, Founder and CEO of Montage Hotels & Resorts, announced

today the opening of Montage Beverly Hills, the company's long-awaited second

property. The company's flagship property, Montage Laguna Beach, opened in 2003. 


    Montage Beverly Hills, a 201-room luxury hotel situated in the "golden

triangle" of Beverly Hills, opens its doors to the public on November 17. 

Fuerstman personally selected renowned hotelier and Managing Director Ali Kasikci

to direct the operations of the 201-guest room property, which is the 

first new luxury hotel to be built in Beverly Hills in more than 16 years.  

    "I am delighted that the second hotel that continues our distinctive 

Montage brand of hospitality for the affluent traveler will soon come alive with

staff and guests," said Fuerstman. "Montage Beverly Hills stands as a dynamic

tribute to our Associates' ability to deliver impeccable service with 

grace and style, and our management's skill at honoring our corporate vision 

to provide an experience with a unique sense and spirit of place. I know that 

all will flourish under the expert leadership of Ali Kasikci." 

    Set in the heart of Beverly Hills just steps from world-class shopping and 

dining, the striking Spanish Colonial Revival design of the property 

celebrates the rich past of Beverly Hills in sophisticated residential-style 

public spaces that are at once intimate in nature and grand in detail. Legacy 

artisans hand-crafted many of these details, including the hand-painted 

ceilings in the Marquesa ballroom and the Library. A curator-assembled art

collection showcases Hollywood's golden age. Three restaurants are devoted to 

the most inventive seasonal dining. The two-level Spa Montage offers holistic 

treatments by the country's most rigorously accredited staff. Gracious guest 

rooms and suites offer rich interiors that reflect the area's glamour estates 

of the 1920s and 1930s, paired with the latest in technology. Even the outdoor 

topiary gardens, a first in the area, evoke the feeling of those grand 


    "I am honored to be a steward of Montage Beverly Hills," said Kasikci. "This

is a community that I treasure, and I look forward with great joy to sharing the

Montage brand of inspired hospitality in a host of highly personal 

culinary, spa and lifestyle experiences that respect our guests' deep 

appreciation of food, wine, wellness and continued learning and discovery."  

    Guestrooms & Suites 

    The 201 richly appointed guest rooms, including 55 suites, range from 500 

to up to 5,000 square feet, and offer stunning city and foothill views from

expansive windows and private balconies. Modern technology features include 

convenient bedside panels and LCD televisions in the generous marble 

bathrooms. Added-value guest services include 24-hour check-in, complimentary 

John Lobb shoe shine, custom-designed suit hangers and Agraria's golden 

pomegranate scented bath products, which are exclusive to the hotel. In 

addition, guests booking Corner Suites and higher may enjoy complimentary

Mercedes-Benz motorcars to use during their stay.

20,000-square-foot Spa Montage features 17 treatment rooms, a spacious fitness 

facility, yoga and Pilates studio and a full-service hair and beauty salon. A 

two-story, mosaic-tiled wall is the focal point of the spa and serves as the 

background to the co-ed relaxation area and mineral pool. 

    Signature treatments include the "Surrender" experience that was 

originally introduced at Montage Laguna Beach. In Beverly Hills, this 

personalized menu of services tailored by expert staff for each individual guest

will draw upon custom rituals inspired by water, earth and the botanical 

abundance of orchards.  


    Dining & More

served as Chef de Cuisine at The Loft at Montage Laguna Beach, three 

restaurants provide a wealth of unique pairings and signature dishes produced 

with California's finest seasonal ingredients and artisanal products.

casually elegant environment with views of the hotel's topiary gardens.

Short Ribs and Cedar Plank Medallions of Spiny Lobster.  Located within Parq's 

custom-designed European kitchen, which features two Molteni ovens and an antique

stone fireplace, is the Chef's Table, an exclusive experience for 12 

guests with menus personally created by Cuevas.  

    Open for dinner, the intimate 44-seat Muse highlights Cuevas's "urbane

American cuisine," featuring exotic seafood and prime meats. An adjacent private

dining room features a table for 20 as well as an adjoining private 

balcony overlooking the Montage gardens. Bordering the rooftop pool, The 

Conservatory Grill offers uninterrupted views of the Hollywood Hills and
