Arrow Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills {US-CA}

Doesn't look like there is a dedicated thread to this property. Opening April 2017.

This property has a great location and should be one of the best properties in that area.

Arrow Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills {US-CA} (opens mid 2017)

Hey folks,

Hotel is now taking reservations for June 1st and beyond. It was added as a Category 10.

Just called and redeemed 190k for 2 nights in June. Should be a nice treat!

Just to forewarn you - I was just at the Beverly Hilton last week and walked by the WA a few times when going to the Starbucks at the triangle. It looks like they still have a lot of work to do. If your dates are flexible, I'd suggest giving them a couple of months beyond June incase there is a delay.

Were you able to reserve a king room, or just two queens?

Dates aren't flexible unfortunately. But if it turns out they're not ready, I'll just book a different hotel.

It was just two queens. They didn't have a standard king available.

Looks like they aren't playing nice and don't have a single king room available for cat 10 redemption, ever. The standard king room is listed as a premium room.

That's right. Not even under consideration at the # of points they're asking for that.

Rates hover around $815/$915? Can they be serious? Makes Chicago look like a bargain even at their high season.

Isn't that comparable to what The Beverly Hills Hotel charges?

Those rooms usually start in the $600's per night.

Suspect that they'll start loading better rates in as demand becomes clearer.

Is anyone able to find a standard room available for any dates? I was just looking to plan a long weekend, and the "Superior 2 Queen Rooms" appear to have vanished entirely.

Not sure if this is relevant, but the online system wouldn't let me use points. I had to call and have an agent do it.

So strange that point redemptions were removed as an option. I had asked them to add it a while ago, they did within hours, I had to call an agent to book, and then point redemptions disappeared quickly thereafter. So odd!

Hi Lauren - Anyway you can help here? The hotel isn't offering any standard room redemptions, on any day. They were available for a couple of days and then were removed from inventory all together. Thanks for helping!
