Every year, from January through March, Los Angeles buzzes during an award season where the entertainment industry gives out accolades effusively. From the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild to the season-culminating Oscars, there seems to be a different award show almost every week. And, of course, with every red carpet, there are coiffeurs, ateliers, jewelers, stylists and personal trainers working overtime to ensure the stars are ready for their spotlight.
Thankfully, the red-carpet treatment isn’t reserved for celebrities. Many hotels throughout the city roll out fabulous Oscar-themed amenities and special offerings for all of us without an agent as well.
So, without further ado, the awards for the most glamorous packages go to…
Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills
Watch this year’s Oscar-nominated movies in style at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. Every weekend between February 24 and March 2, the property presents exclusive dinner and movie nights.
Consider a three-course dinner at Culina, the hotel’s chic Italian restaurant, as pre-show entertainment. Menu items to choose from include: burrata and prosciutto salad; Swiss chard flan topped with truffles; and roasted halibut. Tuck into butterscotch budino for dessert.
The movie takes place at 8 p.m. in the hotel’s plush screening room. Also, gourmet movie snacks, such as creative popcorn flavors, are available for pre-order. Since the theater only seats 30, reservations are advised.
Here is the movie lineup: February 24, The Greatest Showman (matinee at 2 p.m.); The Shape of Water; February 25, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; February 26, Get Out; February 27, The Post; February 28, Lady Bird; March 1, Darkest Hour; and March 2, Phantom Thread.
Montage Beverly Hills
Located in the heart of Beverly Hills’ Golden Triangle, popular Five-Star Montage Beverly Hills commemorates award season (and the brand’s 15-year anniversary) with the Hollywood-approved Memories To Remember package.
The three-night promotion consists of daily breakfast and a modern American dinner for up to four people at celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Georgie. Still, the marquee item in this $50,000 package is the one-hour photo shoot with celebrity photographer John Russo. Look your best for the camera with a hair and makeup session, too.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills
Why should adults get to have all the glitz and glamour? At this Five-Star treat, kids can bask in the excitement, too, with the Red Carpet Kids Package. Future stars will receive a studio film shoot with costumes; a red-carpet VIP entrance with paparazzi when they arrive to their shoot location; a personal butler; a red carpet premiere of the finished film at The Paley Center; an awards ceremony; and even swag bags for all guests. Celebrity-for-a-day packages start at $8,500.
