When I was little girl I dreamed of heading to Hollywood. I remember at a very young age asking my father relentlessly to take me to Tinseltown to ‘make it.’ Every Christmas list, birthday wish and persistent plea…heading to LA LA land was always number one on my list. In retrospect, I may have been out of touch with reality or truly a real life dreamer but I embarrassingly thought the moment I stepped off the plane I would be famous (ahhh the innocence of being young and naive). I admit, I sat hours in the director chair I kept in my childhood bedroom (wearing a North Face fleece…how fitting) pretending I was on filming break. A girl can dream….right?
I have been fortunate to have visited Hollywood numerous times since a tween and although the dream is still very much alive (although I must admit I can neither act or sing) I am much more realistic in my future endeavours.
Like most young girls who grew up daydreaming about old Hollywood, The Beverly Hills Hotel was deemed a notable landmark of such glamour. Whether it is due to the regular visits of Marilyn Munroe, Grace Kelly, Katharine Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor …..this pink palace is iconic.
During my most recent travel to Los Angeles, I visited The Beverly Hills Hotel . I enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Cabana Cafe and sat poolside enjoying some rays. If you live in the local area or planning upcoming travel to the land of opportunity, I highly recommend either staying or dinning at this pink and palm dream.
Lights, Camera, Action!
