Luxury

In 1923, the Biltmore Hotel opened its doors in downtown Los Angeles, setting a new standard for luxury and elegance. Throughout the years the hotel expanded in size and notoriety but never wavered on its commitment to excellence. Since becoming a Millennium property in 2000, the tradition of world-class distinction continued to make it one of the most sought-after hotel reservations in Southern California.

 

Steeped in elegance from head to toe, the hotel has a worldwide reputation for its elegant design and stellar service. The Spanish-Italian Renaissance decor permeates every nook and cranny. Richly decorated with murals, frescos and tapestries, you could spend hours exploring the hotel’s beauty. Carved marble columns line the halls while ornate crystal chandeliers hang from the ceilings.
