Known for its decades-old history in the Hollywood spotlight, especially as host to the Golden Globe Awards, The Beverly Hilton continues to amp up its SoCal event offerings with the debut of its new garden collection spaces this month.
The property’s new multimillion-dollar garden collection includes three distinctive settings for groups up to 600. The alfresco Wilshire Garden invites attendees to mix and mingle amid its manicured lawn and lush living walls, while the connecting Secret Garden provides cozy nooks, chic furnishings and innovative waterfall features. The California Terrace also creates flexibility featuring a a retractable wall of windows that allow groups to transition between outdoor and indoor into the Beverly Hills Ballroom.
“The striking beauty and flexibility that The Gardens offers, truly elevates The Beverly Hilton as a premier destination with something for everyone,” says Sandy Murphy, general manager of The Beverly Hilton. “From red carpet events, to lively receptions and high-powered meetings, our spaces now allow us to create unparalleled experiences in an array of settings.”
While the garden spaces will provide a natural backdrop, team building activities will also be available to initiate attendee bonding and networking. Outdoor “Top-Chef” cooking challenges will be available for groups, with culinary staff members who work on the Golden Globes menu serving as judges. Groups can also opt for themed garden parties such as a “Great Gatsby”-themed soiree or the Italian night celebrations theme, complete with a working brick pizza oven and a variety of house-made gelato. Mini massages and fashion shows can also be worked into the mix—day or night.
