The Peninsula Beverly Hills makes staying in a suite even sweeter! Guests who book one of the hotel’s elegant suites are offered complimentary use of a luxury BMW for the length of their stay.

“Nashville” often comes to mind when the term “country music” is uttered. Even if you aren’t a fan of the genre, it can’t be denied country music and its artists collectively have had a profound influence on America’s overall cultural heritage as well as other artists in the pop, rock and soul genres. The Omni Hotel Nashville personifies that mindset along with the city’s current renaissance, including status as a LEED Silver Certified property.
