Even if the postal service has somehow misplaced your Academy Awards invitation again, it doesn’t mean you can’t get into the red carpet spirit, too. After all, nowhere is it written that Brie Larson and Leonardo DiCaprio should have all the fun on the big night. So, on Oscar night (February 28), it won’t much matter if you’re rooting for Room, The Revenant or some over worthy film, just as long as you look magazine-cover-worthy doing it. These award-winning Beverly Hills hotels have the themed packages to ensure that you’re ready.
Red Carpet Moment at L’Ermitage Beverly Hills
At this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel you’ll find the perfect pampering package. Dubbed Red Carpet Moment, this assemblage starts with a welcome cocktail so you can toast to your achievements, whatever they may be. Give a speech or simply sip and make way to the STRIIIKE salon. There, the experts will make you up before a chauffeured Maserati takes you and your personal stylist to Rodeo Drive so you can find a buzz-worthy outfit. From there, it’s up to you. Go out on the town or curl up and watch the Oscars in the comfort of your luxurious suite. Besides, you already know who the real winner is.
Viewing Party at Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel)
Celebrate the 88th Academy Awards with fellow fans at the iconic viewing party (4 to 7 p.m.) at this Four-Star hotel’s THE Blvd restaurant. While you can certainly toast with glasses overflowing with champagne, make sure to order the Moët Ruby Red, a cocktail made with Moët & Chandon Impérial, vodka, tarragon, raspberry, citrus shrub and lemon juice. And don’t forget to dress up for the occasion. Even if you aren’t taking snaps for the paparazzi yourself, this posh event gives you the opportunity to feel like you could.
Night of 100 Stars Oscar Party at The Beverly Hilton
Just as the title suggests, this epic event at the Four-Star icon is fully centered on the Academy Awards. And like it’s been for the last 26 years, the evening’s host will be super agent Norby Walters. See all of the celebrities up on the big screen while downing glasses of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2004 and partaking in a grand, four-course dinner. Wear your nicest black tie garb or sparkling gown because you never know who you’ll be seated near.
But in the event you pass on the lavish party, you can still pamper yourself like a celebrity elsewhere on property. Head to on-site Aqua Star Babor Beauty Spa for the Babor Red Carpet package, a promotion that includes a $75 credit for any treatment and complimentary sparkling wine for two.
Awards Season Viewing Package at the W Los Angeles-West Beverly Hills
To properly prepare for the electric evening, you and 19 of your most fashion-forward friends will doll up with designer gowns, makeovers and new hairstyles courtesy of Rent the Runway and GlamSquad.
But you need somewhere to show off your new looks, right? Well, you will when you host your own soiree in the EWOW suite’s screening room. (And the award for “Best Party Host” goes to you for the suite’s VIP-stocked mini bar!) The special package also includes a post-ceremony cocktail party at STK Los Angeles, setting the perfect stage for any heated discussions about the night’s sharpest dressers or biggest snubs.
And the Winner Is… Package at Le Méridien Delfina Santa Monica
Book the timely promotion at this high-profile hotel and you just might end up on television. Okay, maybe not, but you will walk away from the weekend feeling like a star after a full-on pampering and grooming tutorial session with a celebrity make-up artist.
Once you complete your look with a glamorous couture gown, show off your style with a “red carpet” photography session. Even if you decide to skip the Oscars ceremony, you can still take home your pictures and show off who wore the dress best.
