A luxury hotel w/ an all-star chef in Beverly Hills

Never went to boarding school? Or have preppy girls look at you? Well then make Weezer all jealous by being at Beverly Hills hotel hot-spot SLS, where the culinary program's headed up by chef José Andrés (one of Time's Most Influential People of 2012), the fitness center is 2,500sqft, and the views from the rooftop pool range from the Hollywood sign to downtown LA.Making your way toward the front door, you'll be met by a red carpet and a smattering of plants (who'll totally plant-wink at you, cause they know you're here to soak up water and sun just like them).Scope the bar where skilled 'tenders mix up inventive tipples like a cotton-candy martini, which'll have your girlfriend/wife/anyone who isn't you clownin' around in no time.Their rooftop pool has a full-service restaurant & bar where breakfast and lunch can be washed down with the likes of the Andres Palmer: lemonade & iced tea infused with Absolut Wild Tea.Ciel (that's the name of the spa) sports therapies like a green clay mud wrap (imported from the Isle de France!), and a choreographed four-hands massage known as the Nirvana (don't be Dumb and ask them to Milk It, unless you want to make All Apologies). Comfy domiciles are awash in soft leathers and earthy tones, intended to offer a harmonious sanctuary for you to escape to after grueling activities such as Nirvana massages and lounging at the pool.Of the 10+ room options, most are equipped to accommodate up to four guests, or one you after scarfing all that José Andrés food.photos:SLSHotels
