Enjoy a first-hand experience in the local car culture when you visit Los Angeles and the luxe Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons, an American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property, with their “stay and drive package.” Through October 31, a new 2019 Maserati Levante will be yours to drive through LA’s hills, streets, and oceanside roads with your night in one of the hotel’s suites.
The Levante is Maserati’s newest model—an all-wheel-drive SUV that will hug the curves on Mulholland Drive and roll smoothly along Malibu’s Pacific Coast Highway. Tune in to your choice of specially curated Spotify playlists and follow the customized itinerary that includes the best places to stop for a meal, view, or photo.
Continuing the Los Angeles auto fan experience, you’ll be the hotel’s guest at the Petersen Auto Museum with two tickets to the special exhibition, “Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy.” Props, designs, and actual vehicles featured in popular films and cult classics are on display.
Now in the midst of tony Beverly Hills across from Rodeo Drive’s designer shops, the Four Seasons sits on what was once the Beverly Auto Speedway. Imagine 1919 Model T’s speeding around the track with the top drivers of that era behind the wheel. The hotel opened shortly after in 1928, but its heritage and connection to the car culture remains.
Back at the hotel for the evening, park your Maserati and head for a cocktail at The BLVD or dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s CUT for the perfect ending to your day on the roads of Los Angeles.
