In a city where Hollywood conquers all, it’s only fitting that The Peninsula Beverly Hills would offer their guests an exclusive glimpse inside the fascinating world of current and classic television, radio and new media.
Backstage at the Paley Center, the newest “Art of Hospitality” offering in The Peninsula Academy’s collection of cultural experiences for hotel guests, invites guests to enjoy a customized exploration of the Paley. Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, The Paley Center for Media is a unique museum that showcases a collection of nearly 150,000 US and international television, radio and new media programs from the past 80-plus years.
At guests’ leisure, the hotel’s Rolls-Royce Phantom will whisk them from The Peninsula to the Paley Center, a Richard Meier-designed building, located just a few blocks away. There, they will enjoy a private tour of the facilities and the collection with an expert Paley staff member, who will share colorful insider stories while recounting the history of television and radio. The staff member will focus on TV and radio programs that are of particular interest to the guests, whether from a specific era, such as the 1950s or 1960s, or in genres including comedy, drama, news, sports and documentaries.
If the guests’ stay at The Peninsula coincides with one of the Paley Center’s frequent special events or film festivals, they will enjoy VIP access backstage and the Green Room as well as VIP seating. At the guests’ convenience, the hotel’s Rolls-Royce Phantom will return them to The Peninsula. Lunch in The Belvedere, the hotel’s AAA Five-Diamond restaurant, or Afternoon Tea in The Living Room, along with a gift selection from the Paley Center Gift Shop, are included in the US$ 185 price per person.
