Tihany Redesigns Beverly Hills Polo Lounge

The Polo Lounge at Dorchester Collection’s Beverly Hills Hotel has been reintroduced after a two-month restoration program. Led by New York-based designer Adam D. Tihany of Tihany Design, the Polo Lounge redesign pays homage to its 73 years of heritage.


Celebrating California lifestyle, the room retains its original green and white striped color scheme. Fixtures, lighting, and furniture were replaced, and ornate mirrors, historic images, and renewed dark paneling adorn the walls. Along with enhanced heating and sound systems in the patio, flower settings, and vintage lamps add to the lounge’s residential feel.

"The Beverly Hills is a dream project. I love this hotel. And it is so important that it continues to respect the spirit of the city," says Tihany. "By maintaining much of the Polo Lounge's beloved originality, we have not only kept the connection to the community but also enhanced it.”

The Polo Lounge has played host to legends like Charlie Chaplin and Marlene Dietrich, as well as many presidential visits.

In addition to the new lobby and refreshed Polo Lounge, the hotel's restoration program continues at the pool cabanas and Cabana Café— followed with all guestrooms and suites being updated by the summer of 2014.

Reconstructing such big hotels must be definitely a difficult job for all the architects and other workers involved in the task.
