    EXCLUSIVE: newly revamped Bel-Air hotel in Los Angeles revealed:)


    With just weeks to go until the unveiling of this iconic LA hotel, it’s immediately clear that everyone on-site is hard at work – from the laying of turf, planting of ficus trees and setting of brick pathways to the installation of furniture in the bedrooms, the filling of swimming pools with water and stocking of bars – but will it all be done in time?

    A spokeswoman for the Bel-Air is adamant that it will be, saying: “There won’t be a soft opening so it will be trial by fire. You’d be surprised how quickly things come together though. We are working around the clock to get it all done.” She adds that there will be a number of opening parties with celebrity neighbours being among those invited, and bookings for stays are already being accepted.

    The hotel, which is owned by the Sultan of Brunei and is located on Stone Canyon Road, originally opened in 1946 but closed for a complete redesign in September 2009. Although it could not be disclosed how much has been invested in the project, it is obvious that it must have been many millions of dollars, and the overall look is both luxurious and tasteful.
