Hotel Bel-Air701 Stone Canyon Road Los Angeles, CA
The Hotel Bel-Air’s picturesque gardens and recently renovated facilities have been the backdrop for creating lifetime memories. Weddings and private parties can be held outdoors near Swan Lake and on the Front Lawn.
With stunning surroundings of hibiscus and palms, scented blooms and winding pathways, Hotel Bel-Air provides the perfect backdrop for a wedding. For the ceremony, a range of venues are available, including services by the colorful herb garden, in any of the charming courtyards or on the front lawn next to Swan Lake, perhaps one of the city’s most romantic wedding sites. As resident swans glide across the sparkling water, guests are greeted with champagne and hors d’ oeuvres and seated beneath a canopy of trees; all while a small orchestra plays dreamy tunes.
A glamorous retreat for world travelers and movie stars since 1946, Hotel Bel-Air pairs luxury accommodations and five-star hospitality in a serene setting. Intimate tiled patios, trickling fountains, personal spas and wood-burning fireplaces enhance many of the 91 rooms and suites, each individually designed to evoke a sense of residential comfort. Embraced by 12 acres of thriving gardens, all accommodations offer the ultimate in tranquility and seclusion. In fact, over the years this urban hideaway has earned esteem for its ability to ensure privacy for very public figures. A reception follows in the Pavilion or Garden Room, where floor-length Egyptian linens, gorgeous flower arrangements and glowing candelabras set the stage for a grand celebration. Three course meals are served during lunch receptions and four courses at dinner, with the bride and groom seated at the Sweetheart Table, laced with flower petals and candles. The hotel’s wedding planners, along with all other details and special touches for the big bash, can arrange the musical accompaniment of choice. For intimate, self-contained wedding functions, guest may reserve the Bel-Air’s entire south wing, the Chalon courtyard, and it’s lavishly appointed accommodations, such as the recently remodeled Suite 150 and famous Grace Kelly Suite.
Anytime during the visit, bridal couples and their guests may call upon the services of the concierge to arrange tee times at the area’s top golf courses, schedule boating or yachting excursions and helicopter trips to Catalina Island, book in-room massage and spa treatments, or learn about popular attractions around Beverly Hills, Century City and Sunset Boulevard.
