Maison 140, Beverly Hills

Posted on February 18, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment

Welcome to the Mandarin French treat on the Beverly! Not only this, but Maison 140 is the home of the unusual fusion of Asia and Paris, which cannot be described in words, but can only be felt. Additionally, this chic hotel was once possessed by Lillian Gish, the silent-film star. So, with these many historic and cultural features, how can Maison 140 remain back in the competition for the best places to stay in US?

Get ready to glide into the Maison modes that are inspired by the French and Far East cultures. This unique boutique was redesigned as a modern respect for the typical 20th century Parisian inns. The Parisian-style features low coffee tables, chairs in black and white, crystal chandeliers of France-style, and lacquered wall panels along with the French signature drinks such as the Bloody Hell. Inviting and warm, but still visually captivating, Maison 140 is the perfect stay option in the Beverly Hills for the artistic traveler. The retreat is very close to the Rodeo Drive, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica.


There are some 140 guest rooms on 3 floors; all of which possess the fascinating décor in form of geometric designs, bold color schemes, custom furniture as well as wallpaper, original work, and unique antiques. No matter which you choose, all are non-smoking units. Within each of them, expect DVD player, wireless Internet access, high-speed Internet access, cable/satellite television channels, pay movies, video-game console, mini bar, air conditioning, voice mail, multi-line phone, hair dryer, designer toiletries (Molton Brown), premium bedding, iron/ironing board, safe, clock radio, cribs, wake-up calls, bathrobes, mirror, in-room massage, down comforters, and 300-threaded Italian designer linens. All guestrooms are smoke-free.

Here, the room types are totally different. Forget the single, double, deluxe, and luxury. In fact, here the rooms are divided into two categories revealing the state of art within: Mandarin and Parisian. Both of them boast breathtaking decor in form of antique gems of Paris and London, patterns, custom wallpaper prints, French influences, Asian visuals, and shining white and black furniture.

At Maison 140, there is only one eatery zone named Bar Noir. It more of a lounge type, which is intimate and exotic offering specialty drinks. So, this is actually not a restaurant. However, it does serve an organic Continental breakfast for a fee. Since there is no restaurant in the hotel, I am sharing with you some of the dining options nearby: Belvedere Restaurant and Da Pasquale Restaurant.
