Nine Reasons to Stay in the Heart of Los Angeles- Beverly Hills
When you hear the mention of Beverly Hills, you might think of shopping on Rodeo Drive first—Pretty Woman references included. Indeed, upscale shopping is a great draw to this sophisticated city, but the reasons to visit do not stop here. With its central location, warm climate, beautiful parks, acclaimed hotels, fine dining, health and wellness offerings and storied past, the city is the destination of choice in Southern California.

Beverly Hills is located in Los Angeles County, which—with upwards of 10 million residents—is the most populous county in the United States. It’s home to more than a quarter of California’s population and is one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the country. Long lauded as the entertainment capital of the world, it is also a cultural mecca that houses more than a hundred museums.
In the more than 100 years since Beverly Hills grew from a lima bean farm, this picturesque and walkable city has become the crown jewel of greater Los Angeles. The following nine attributes align to make Beverly Hills the perfect location for your Los Angeles stay:

Central Location: Located six miles northeast of Santa Monica and nine miles west of Downtown Los Angeles, Beverly Hills is at the centre of some of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Southern California! Flanked on the west by Westwood — home to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) — and on the east by West Hollywood, Beverly Hills has its own unique, magnetic appeal.
Warm Weather:
While we can’t guarantee perfect weather during your stay, the track record of warm temperatures speaks for itself. Average highs range from 67 degrees in January to 79 degrees in August, according to The Weather Channel. The rose-coloured (sun) glasses you’ll be donning in the midst of this year-round summer will make the rest of your experiences all the more enjoyable.


Lush Green Parks: Beverly Hills’ picturesque parks and trees thrive thanks to the thoughtful design of urban planner and landscape architect Wilbur David Cook. At the heart of the city sits the triangular-shape, five-acre Will Rogers Memorial Park, which features expansive lawns, rose gardens and palm and dragon trees. When you’ve finished relaxing to the gentle sounds of the splashing fountain, cross Sunset Boulevard to enjoy a cocktail at The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel, or begin a 15 minute leisurely walk south to Beverly Gardens Park and pose for a selfie in front of the Beverly Hills sign.

Unique Hotels: Whether grand or intimate, five star or boutique, Beverly Hills has a wide selection of hotels for different tastes and lifestyles. Elegant guest rooms and an Italian Renaissance–inspired facade welcome you at Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel. If you’d prefer to stay near world class shopping, you can’t get any closer than the sleek Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel. The Peninsula Beverly Hills is the only AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five Star–rated hotel in Southern California where villa suites located among tropical gardens allow for complete privacy. Looking for a spectacular view? Visit the city’s newest hotel, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, and experience their rooftop restaurant, The Rooftop by JG. And not only does The Beverly Hilton have iconic, mid-century modern design, but it also features the largest Olympic-sized hotel pool in the country!


Extended Stay: Guests seeking an extended stay in Beverly Hills can check into AKA Beverly Hills, an exclusive and contemporary residential oasis designed for extended stays of one week or longer. Noteworthy amenities include a complimentary screening room, Spago in-Suite dining and a stunning landscaped terrace overlooking the Hills.


Fine-Dining: Dining does not get any finer than the likes of Spago Beverly Hills, Il Pastaio and Mastro’s Steakhouse, to name just a few, in a city with a vast array of culinary options. It is no wonder that Spago has been awarded AAA’s Four Diamond rating with their varied menus and wonderful dishes. Il Pastaio, the celebrated Italian restaurant in the city’s centre, has been pleasing local patrons and visitors for over 20 years. Make sure you’re camera-ready to pose for the paparazzi as they seek celebrities at this popular gathering spot. A fan favourite and always lively, Mastro’s offers thick, juicy steaks and chops and mouth-watering seafood. Not to be outdone, Beverly Hills hotels also offer impeccable dining with restaurants such as Jean-Georges at Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills’ Avec Nous restaurant and The Peninsula Beverly Hills’ AAA Five-Diamond rated restaurant for over 22 years, The Belvedere.
City of WELLTH: Derived from the term ‘wealth,’ which refers to a large amount of money and possessions, ‘WELLTH’ represents a new, less materialistic and more valuable life currency that encompasses wellness and is exemplified by health, purpose and happiness. Beverly Hills invites each visitor to pamper their mind, body and soul. The city has long been known as an authority on five-star experiences. But at its heart is a more mindful ethos that takes a holistic approach to happiness and wellbeing, enlivened by experts who champion the city’s health and wellness offerings.

Iconic Shopping: Beverly Hills is a top destination for fashion seekers and VIP shoppers. Fashion houses, standout boutiques and Department Store Row help the city live up to its shop-till-you-drop reputation. Among the high-end department stores and luxurious designer boutiques of the Golden Triangle is the one of the most expensive stores in the world: House of Bijan. You’ll need to make a reservation to shop at this exclusive men’s shop, which counts presidents, royalty and billionaires as its most loyal clientele.
A Story at every turn: Scratch the surface of many current Beverly Hills attractions to discover part of the city’s rich history. Once home to Marilyn Monroe, the Beverly Carlton Hotel has re-emerged as The Avalon Hotel, a member of Design Hotels, in partnership with Starwood Preferred Guest. Former private estates have been given National Historic Landmark status, as is the case with Virginia Robinson Gardens, a six-acre property encompassing a breath-taking garden, mansion and pool pavilion that is the first luxury estate built in Beverly Hills. The area’s entertainment industry is celebrated at The Paley Centre for Media, a cultural centre devoted to television and radio—past and present.

Beverly Hills is one of the world’s most sought-after locales. Centrally located in greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills is a premier vacation and business travel destination, boasting beautiful weather year-round, acclaimed full-service and boutique hotel accommodations, sumptuous dining, and incomparable shopping. Synonymous with Hollywood glamour, Beverly Hills enjoys an international reputation as the home and playground of A-list movie stars. The city is not only known worldwide for its grand mansions and chic shops along Rodeo Drive, but also for its multitude of art and architecture, spas, salons and exceptional walkability.

Supreme Court

New Delhi, July 8 : The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to examine a petition that sought a direction to the Centre to close down the ”ashrams” and spiritual centres run by fake ”babas” who it claimed kept hundreds of women inmates in unhygienic conditions that could potentially lead to Covid-19 outbreak.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Centre: “Look into this — what can be done. This gives a bad name to everyone.”

The bench asked the petitioner to serve a copy of the petition to the Solicitor General”s office. The top court sought Mehta”s views on the matter and posted the matter for further hearing after two weeks.

Petitioner Dumpala Ramreddy, a resident of Secunderabad said: “Though very serious criminal cases were registered against Veerendra Dev Dixit, Asaram Bapu, Gurmit Ram Rahim Singh baba etc… their ashrams are still being run with the help of their close associates and authorities are not verifying the facilities available there.”

The plea urged the apex court to direct the authorities concerned to frame guidelines in setting up of ”ashrams”, and other spiritual entities in the country.

The petition filed through advocate Sravan Kumar contended that authorities had failed to crack down against fake ”babas” who were allegedly luring innocent people, especially women.

The petitioner alleged that scores of women were forced to stay in the ”ashrams” and given narcotics.

The petitioner cited the case of ”Adhyatmik Vishwa Vidyalaya” at Rohini in Delhi, where his daughter had stayed for nearly five years. Following complaints from many girl inmates, this ”ashram” was raided by a court-appointed panel.

New Delhi, July 8 : The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked the Delhi University to clarify whether there would be a change in the schedule of the online Open Book Examinations which are slated to commence from July 10.

While passing the said directions, a single judge bench of the high court presided by Justice Pratibha M. Singh remarked: “Can you imagine the mental trauma of a student, how can you expect them to prepare like this?”

The remarks came after the officials of the Delhi University sought more to time to respond to the query of the court regarding any change in the date sheet and schedule of the examinations.

During the course of the hearing, through its counsel Sachin Dutta and Dean Examinations Vinay Gupta, Delhi University told the bench that since the situation is extraordinary, a tentative schedule can only be given.

“Evaluation of papers would begin from August first week and would continue till mid-September and the declaration of results would be done within the said month,” the Delhi University told the court adding that the degree would be immediately available at the time of declaration of results and it would be uploaded online so that students can download it, except in some PG courses where the process is done manually.

In order to show its preparations for the examinations, the varsity informed the court that during the mock tests conducted by it, 4.86 lakh papers have been downloaded and attempted which shows that the students are able to attempt the paper. It was further submitted by the DU that 4.68 lakh files have been uploaded.

The DU further informed the court that there are around 2.45 lakh students who are studying in the final year of the varsity, out of which 1.86 lakh belongs to Delhi and 59,000 students are from outside the national capital.

“So far, 1.58 lakh students have registered for the online examination,” the varsity’s dean of Examination submitted before the court.

Professor Gupta stated that date sheets have already been uploaded on the website and in the online exams, in case the varsity”s portal is not accessible, question papers will be emailed to the students.

If any student is unable to upload the answer sheets due to technical snag, they can also email it to the university and the window will be open for 30 minutes after the exams time is over. Moreover, after the said time limit concludes, a committee will examine the technical glitch and decide whether to accept the answer sheets or not, the DU told the bench.

The court was hearing a petition filed by one Anupam and several students of the final year of the Delhi University seeking cancellation of the examinations in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The plea sought quashing and withdrawal of the notifications of May 14, May 30, June 27 in respect of undergraduate and postgraduate students, including students of the School of Open Learning and Non-Collegiate Women Education Board.

“… the UGC and the Central Government, ought to also bear in mind that the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in enormous mental distress and agony to students. There are families which are suffering medical illnesses and giving of examinations is not just a technological issue but the state of mental preparedness of the students also needs to be assessed,” said the court on Monday.
