The Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills has created an entire Wellness Floor for its health-focused guests.
After successfully partnering with Delos Living on multiple installations, the hotel has transformed its entire fourth floor into a wellness oasis with 10 Wellness Rooms, one Wellness Studio Suite, three Wellness Suites, a Private Fitness Suite and a Well Office. They are all located on the same floor as the spa, Cabana restaurant with plant-based options, the pool deck and the main fitness center.
The hotel has also converted one of its traditional, lobby-level meeting and event spaces into an innovative, wellness-focused event space to round out the program.
“Our travelers to Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills are looking to stay healthy, especially in these times, and are looking for ways to replicate their workout regimes at home, while on the road,” said Michael Newcombe, general manager. “We wanted to provide a variety of wellness and fitness amenities for them to feel as comfortable as possible. The necessity for a Wellness Floor is a creative solution to a market shift.”
Newcombe said that the highlight of the new Wellness Floor are the state-of-the-art wellness rooms, which combine health and well-being elements with a light, airy design that echoes the surrounding beauty of Beverly Hills. Amenities in the rooms include Rabbit air purification systems, energizing light to aid with regulating circadian rhythm, water de-chlorinators and purification systems, and sound machines. “The wooden floors are a hypo-allergenic and design-based solution for a look and feel to tie our simple guestroom color palette together with a natural element,” he said.
Additional Wellness Room amenities include guided meditations narrated by Deepak Chopra, sulfate-free bath amenities by LATHER, and in-room fitness and Alo Yoga equipment. “In-room weights and yoga and digital content speak to a traveler who demands to multi-task and conference call and continue to stretch and work out,” said Newcombe.
Allowing guests to put their health and well-being at the center of their stay, the Private Fitness Suite launched in summer 2020 and includes a two-hour reserved time slot for up to three guests per party. Guests have access to all room features including a treadmill, hydrow rowing machine, Peloton bike, in-room yoga equipment by Alo Yoga, medicine ball and weights, and Soul Cycle bike.
Designed to keep guests engaged and energized while working, the floor’s Well Office features hypo-allergenic wood floors and the Rabbit air purification system. The innovative space has been outfitted with a Jarvis adjustable height conference table, and Luna standing desk stools to allow for standing, seated and hybrid options. An individual Jarvis standing desk with lamp has also been included, as well as a large-screen television perfect for presentations and video conferencing. Separate from the Wellness floor, the hotel has also converted the former Palm Room and Courtyard into a Wellness meeting and event space with the same features available.
Newcombe said that making this addition to the hotel’s offerings just made sense following the pandemic. “Since the pandemic, people are even more conscious and focused on staying healthy, and they realize the best way to do so, is by taking care of themselves, through healthy eating, working out, proper sleep, meditation, etc.,” he said.
Complementing these new wellness initiatives, the property has been awarded the WELL Health-Safety Rating following the successful completion of third-party documentation review by GBCI to confirm it has met the feature specific intents and requirements. The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing building and space types focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, stakeholder engagement and emergency plans to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and into the future. “We decided to secure the WELL rating as it shows our true, authentic dedication to providing wellness for our guests,” he said. “We take wellness very seriously, and want to do everything in our power, to encourage guests to stay as healthy as possible.”
