Description
Two years before Beverly Hills became an incorporated city, the Beverly Hills Hotel opened on May 12, 1912; the hotel initially included the main building and twenty-three separate bungalows in the Mediterranean Revival style, designed by Elmer Grey. In the 1940s, a new wing was added to the east side of the main building. Eighty years after it opened, the hotel closed for two and a half years for a complete restoration. The hotel was named the first historic landmark in Beverly Hills on September 12, 2012.
A 25th anniversary ball at the Crystal Room in the Beverly Hills Hotel. Guests are dancing to the music of Joe Moshay's Orchestra. Next to the bandstand, trees with bare silver branches hold open fans and silver "25" numbers. Photo dated January 28, 1952.
