I raced to check in to a nicer hotel for my last night. Mr C. (of Cipriani) in Beverly Hills offered a check in cocktail of a Bellini at the bar.  No need to visit a desk. All done at the bar while your luggage is whisked to your room. YAY!

Cool abstract horse in the lobby.

A very masculine room..

I love room service!

The final night party was at Harbinger.  These are the fab Hillary Thomas finials.

Beautiful flowers and fab food by Lulu Powers.
