Pierre-Yves Rochon and Gensler design 'soon-to-be-iconic' Waldorf Astoria for Beverly Hills

It's been a privilege to deliver this iconic property that sets a new standard for luxury and hospitality
– Andy Cohen, Gensler Co-CEO

Hospitality group Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has opened a “soon-to-be-iconic” hotel at the gateway to Beverly Hills, with interiors designed by the studio of architect and designer Pierre-Yves Rochon (PYR).

The 12-storey Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills features 170 guestrooms and suites, designed by PYR to interpret Hollywood glamour and the Streamline Moderne style of the 1930s and 40s. Design features range from a triple-height lobby with a contemporary Art Deco design to hand-painted murals, custom crystal chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows, oversized private balconies and Lalique glassware installations.

Leisure amenities include three restaurants operated by French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten; a 5,000sq ft (464sq m) La Prairie Spa with six private treatment rooms; a Tracey Cunningham Salon; two ballrooms; and a rooftop garden with VIP cabanas and a large sky pool overlooking the Hollywood Hills.

"Bringing the renowned Waldorf Astoria brand to Beverly Hills has been a dream for many years," said Beny Alagem, who co-owns the hotel through his Alagem Capital Group. “I think every visitor stepping across our threshold will agree that our dream has been fulfilled far and beyond even our wildest imagination."

The design of the exterior architecture of the hotel was a collaboration between PYR, Perkins+Will and Gensler.

Andy Cohen, Co-CEO at Gensler, said: "As the prime architect and master planner for the site and the hotel, Gensler has worked together with Oasis West Realty, [Waldorf Astoria owner] Hilton, and PYR to create a world-class urban resort and gateway to Beverly Hills, unlike any other luxury property in Southern California.

“It's been a privilege to deliver this iconic property that sets a new standard for luxury and hospitality.”

The project is Waldorf Astoria’s first new build on the West Coast and second California hotel.
