The Beverly Hilton, an iconic, 569-room property in Beverly Hills, Calif., will soon debut new outdoor event venues to complement its more than 60,000 square feet of meeting and event space. 
 
The Gardens, a multimillion-dollar project on schedule to celebrate its grand opening June 14, will include three spaces: the alfresco Wilshire Garden, with a green lawn and living walls; a connected Secret Garden, with cozy nooks, furnishings and a waterfall; and the California Terrace, an indoor-outdoor transition area with a retractable wall of windows and direct access to the 8,180-square-foot Beverly Hills Ballroom. The full outdoor area will be able to accommodate as many as 600 people in theater-style seating, or up to 350 in rounds. Overall, the property has more than 60,000 square feet of meeting space.
 
Among other amenities at the hotel are the Circa 55 restaurant, featuring modern California cuisine, the Aqua Star Babor spa and a fitness center with Precor equipment. Aside from standard and suite guest rooms, there are 36 poolside cabana rooms with private patios opening onto the Aqua Star Pool deck.
