The Crescent

Five minutes from Rodeo Drive, steps away from the Hollywood Walk of Fame… Have we got your attention? This boutique hotel is one of Beverly Hills’ best kept hidden secrets… that is, until now. International celebrity and royal stylist Kelly Lundberg shares with us one of her favourite hotels in the world: The Crescent in Beverley Hills, California.


Once the haunt for silent film actors, The Crescent is a 35-bedroom boutique hotel located on the corner of North Crescent Drive. Doesn’t this look like a still from a movie scene?


Hi, Kelly!

“It’s the perfect place to stay when I’m working in LA.  Within the Beverly Hills shopping triangle, a 5 minute walk to Rodeo Drive and a few steps away from some of my favorite boutiques, this sophisticated hotel is situated right next door to a much frequented celeb café,” says Kelly. 

The decor is quirky, artsy and has pops of colour that will make you smile as you turn each corner. It’s an Instagram addict’s heaven – the perfect finishing touch that adds character and charm.


Sweet Suite

Guest rooms, like most in LA, are compact but very modern with stylish interiors and super comfy beds and bedding.  The added attraction of free Wi-Fi, 24 hour room service, flat screen TV’s and an iPod docking station meant Kelly felt instantly at home.


The outside courtyard terrace is an inspired touch: tranquil and discrete.  The seating offers a great social hub, a venue to meet clients, do a spot of work and for Kelly to sign the next Hollywood deal!

Kelly also recommends topping off your day, relaxing and unwinding in The Crescent’s newly renovated cocktail bar: excellent place to meet new friends, ideal when you are travelling alone.
