    The Director of Catering & Events at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is responsible for the strategic leadership of group and local catering sales and event management in the hotel's continuing effort to deliver outstanding guest service and financial profitability.

    The architecture of Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is a thoughtful response to its urban context, a context established by the convergence of Santa Monica and Wilshire Boulevards and exudes the essence of its varied streetscape. The design itself is responsive to the overall architectural styles prominent in Southern California, and is a contemporary interpretation of Hollywood glamour drawing inspiration from the rich history of California's Streamline Modern style.

    Guests at the hotel will enjoy unrivalled views in every direction from oversized private balconies - 'classic lanais' - each providing shade and privacy for guests, functioning as an extension of the already expansive suites.

    Rising up from the vibrant energy of the streetscape, the building terraces at the third level reveal Celebrity Villa Suites with spacious private patios and luxurious gardens, ensuring a retreat that is most alluring and serene. The rooftop pool deck, available only to hotel guests, will be the loftiest and largest rooftop destination of its kind in Beverly Hills. Impeccably landscaped, the rooftop gathering area will include, VIP cabanas, a lounge area with panoramic views as well as a swimming pool.
