News for the Hospitality Executive
than 16 Years, the 201 room Montage Beverly Hills Opens
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 17, 2008 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
