Beverly Hills SLS Hotel

Here is some more about the venue where the GBK Oscar Gift Suite will be held in February. Nourot Glass Studio is invited to attend and will be gifting the "Scarlet Nova" glass and other of their hand blown glass patterns to the celebrities that attend Oscar Gift Suite 2009.
The SLS is the latest global destination of the Stanwood Hotel Chain, a luxury hotelier with the reputation of being on the cutting edge of style and design.
SLS Hotel, Beverly Hills is a, Luxury Collection Hotel in
the highly desirable and dynamic heart of Los Angeles. Frits Van
Paasschen, President and Chief Executive Officer, Starwood Hotels &
Resorts, says "The hotel's leading-edge design by Philippe Starck,
unparalleled epicurean offerings by Chef Jose Andres and innovative
retail concept by Moss, make it an ideal setting for our latest hotel
within The Luxury Collection brand, offering global explorers a portal
to one of the world's most exciting cities."

Design mastermind Philippe Starck has created the look and feel of SLS under a 15-year design exclusive with SBE for the U.S., Caribbean
and Mexico. SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills is the first truly luxury hotel
that Starck has designed in North America, having single-handedly
redefined every aspect of the hotel experience in the 1990s and
spurred the 'boutique hotel' movement.

The guest rooms are said to have a"floating bed" on a plexi glass stand and bare side tables with i-pod dock and a simple pen and pad. Across from the bed is a flat screen TV ingeniously embedded in a black slab ala 2001. Hotel review sites call it "crazy cool."
The hotel features a unique dual guest lobby concept where one area caters exclusively to hotel guests, while the other is a lively, multi-faceted public dining and retail environment
called The Bazaar by Jose Andres.
