Viceroy Hotel Group (VHG) has been named operator and manager of L’Ermitage Beverly Hills luxury hotel in the US.
The luxury hotel has been managed by Raffles Hotels & Resorts since 2000 as Raffles L’Ermitage.
The property has been recently acquired from Fairmont Raffles Hotels International by a private investor for an undisclosed amount.
VHG will begin a phased refurbishment programme at the hotel and will then relaunch it as Viceroy Beverly Hills in late 2010.
The L’Ermitage Beverly Hills features 119 spacious rooms and suites.
The hotel received Forbes Travel Guide (formerly Mobil) Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Awards for the past nine years.
This is the newest addition to VHG’s growing Viceroy Hotels & Resorts brand.
The VHG group added three new hotels and resorts to its portfolio in 2009 – Viceroy Miami, Viceroy Anguilla in the Caribbean and Viceroy Snowmass in Colorado.
