The legendary Beverly Hills hotel celebrates its 110th anniversary
The Beverly Hills Hotel opened in 1912, before the founding of Beverly Hills — the city has grown just around this glamorous hotel. To this day, the iconic hotel remains at the heart of Beverly Hills' stellar community, dedicating all of 2022 to celebrating 110 years of its heritage, not only as the region's first official landmark and second home of Hollywood celebrities, but as an example of hospitality for generations to come.
In honor of its anniversary, the hotel will hold special events throughout the year for guests and local residents.
Declaration of love
Hotel asks guests to write their appreciation letter to the Beverly Hills Hotel on anniversary letterhead. The letters will go on public display in May before being archived as part of the hotel's rich history.
$1,912 McCarthy Salad
The Beverly Hills Hotel's most famous dish is the McCarthy salad, named after frequent guest and polo player Neil McCarthy. He was the captain of the local polo team in the 1940s. Once at the Polo Lounge, he asked for a rather strange set of ingredients, and his signature salad was born. The recipe remained untouched for decades. Approximately 600 McCarthy salads are sold in the hotel's restaurants each week.
Guests dining at the Polo Lounge from June to December will have the opportunity to taste the traditional McCarthy salad “total” for $1,912, the price is dedicated to the year the hotel opened. Waiters will arrive at the table in white gloves, and the salad will be garnished with gold leaf flakes, lobster, caviar and topped off with a bottle of Dom Peìrignon. The dish will be served on a commemorative plate made by masters of French porcelain. Guests can then take it home. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Los Angeles Conservation Fund.

The hotel offers one of the following exclusive cocktails:
Mary Pickford — rum, pineapple juice, luxardo maraschino, grenadine;
