areas within each suite.
"After many years of lobbying
closely with the Bel-Air Association and our neighbors, we are thrilled to be
able to offer this new amenity to our guests," said Carlos Lopes, Hotel Bel-Air
Managing Director. "The spa promises to be an extension of what our guests
already love about the Bel-Air - exceptional service, distinct luxury and ultimate
