Montage Beverly Hills

The JetSet Family // The Montage Beverly Hills

JetSet Tot often reminds me of the real life six year old storybook character, Eloise. She runs around big, luxury hotels just like the little girl with the big red bow, introducing herself to each and every single representative of the property, gaining access behind-the-scenes and having every possible wish granted beyond her own dreams. As a mom, it’s special for me to watch her simply being a playful kid excited of her new surroundings. It was no different when we arrived at Montage Beverly Hills. They must have known what they were getting themselves into when they extended an invitation for The JetSet Family to spend the weekend because everyone knew Miss C. the moment she stepped out of the car.

Montage Beverly Hills had a very special weekend planned for The JetSet Family. From date night at Scarpetta, to Paintbox for JetSet Tot, room service, a spa getaway, afternoon tea and Sunday Brunch, this was about to be a very special staycation. The best part? It was the whole JetSet Family. JetSet Dad wasn’t traveling for business so he was able to join us for all the fun and spend quality time away with us.

Upon check in, we were greeted by the biggest smiling faces I have ever seen. This can be rare and so it is very appreciated. These huge smiles set the tone for our whole weekend, and made us feel welcomed more than any words could do. One of our favorite smiles was from our bellman, Nelson. Not only did he put all of our luggage away, but popped the cork and poured us glasses of champagne to cheers the weekend and enjoy the plate of lite snacks the hotel left for us.

The room was awe-inspiring. Exactly the type Eloise would request and Montage Beverly Hills must have known this, because not only did they leave this welcome note, but made sure Lil’ Miss C. had her very own amenities like a Paintbox robe, velvet slippers, and milk and cookies at bedtime. Nope…we’re never leaving.

Before we knew it, it was time to bring Tot to Paintbox so JetSet Dad and I could get ready for date night at Scarpetta. Paintbox is this fantastic on-property retreat where pint-sized guests can go to play games, make arts and crafts, go on back-end tours of the hotel and simply have fun while their parents are having dinner, or enjoying spa treatments. That evening, Andrea was in charge of Paintbox and JetSet Tot adored her, in fact, so did we. Miss C. had so much fun that she asked to stay longer and was determined to go back again.

While JetSet Tot was taking over the Montage Beverly Hills, JetSet Dad and I were off to Scarpetta for date night. We’ve heard wonderful things, so we were excited for a new dining experience, and have some adult conversation. They had just changed the seasonal menu that day so we were in for some great things. Make sure to check back next week because we’ll be giving you a whole review of our Scarpetta experience.

When visiting hotels, we like to try room service at least once. So for this staycation we opted for a quick breakfast before Tot and Dad headed to the pool and I made my way to the spa for a long overdue facial and much anticipated relaxation. This morning Tot pulled an Eloise because she saw on the in-room dining menu a basket of chocolate croissants from Bouchon and had her little mind set that she ‘needed’ one for breakfast. It didn’t matter that they didn’t have one that morning, because in true Montage Beverly Hills fashion, they made one homemade and delivered the biggest, most delicious chocolate croissant we’ve ever laid our eyes on.

Without a doubt, afternoon tea at Parq was our most favorite part of the weekend. This was our chance to enjoy and nice late lunch and some quality JetSet Family time together. Tot loves tea time and it was so special to her that she was able to share this experience with JetSet Dad. We stopped by the Parq Bar and met Karla who prepared the most amazing afternoon tea.

Of course our fabulous JetSet weekend in Beverly Hills would not be complete without a very special trip to American Girl Place at The Grove. We met with our fabulous personal shopper, Katrina, who once again, braved the crowds and escorted us throughout the store on the busy Saturday night. We were on a mission. Ivy needed a new dress, and Kit really wanted new PJs. I never, ever, ever knew in a million years they needed another buddy. Surprise! As a very special gift, Molly just had to come back to the hotel with us because Miss C. was very sad after this year she’s going on “vacation”.

None of us wanted to leave. We were pretty melancholy to have to leave that Sunday and had zero motivation to pack up. We were stalling with everything we had in us. So we did what any other JetSet Family would do. We soaked up every second possible! Tot went back to Paintbox with her new bestie, Andrea, I packed, then we all went and spent the rest of the morning at brunch poolside at The Conservatory Grill. And life was grand.

On a recent JetSet Family getaway it was obvious, if Eloise had a West Coast home, it would be Montage Beverly Hills. So if it’s good for her… it’s great for Miss C.

Thank you again, Montage Beverly Hills, for having us. We had such a wonderful weekend.

    Sounds like a really nice high end place great for traveling with kids. I’m impressed with how detail oriented they are.

  • Mistee Dawn January 6, 2014

    Wow. Looks like such a great time. I bet my daughter would enjoy something like that. Such a great place.

  • Lexie Lane January 6, 2014

    Been to the Montage in Laguna Beach but not Beverly HIlls. I’m sure it’s just as lovely. I’m sure your daughter had the loveliest time.

  • Looks like you had a wonderful time and I am so impressed with all the details to make it special for your daughter, too.

  • Erinn S January 6, 2014

    OK now I want to go. Love the Paintbox and treats are something I wonder why every hotel doesn’t do with guests. Such an effortless way to make someone feel special!

  • AlexandraFunFit January 6, 2014

    Wow, sounds like a perfect weekend. My boys are too old for the kid stuff, but they’d love the room service, and I love Bouchon!!

  • Jessica January 6, 2014

    Looks like such a nice place! We are taking a trip next month and I am excited!

  • tara pittman January 6, 2014

    That is one awesome hotel. My kind of vacation. Love the milk and cookies at bedtime

  • I would be smiling like Jetset Tot! What a beautiful place & I’m sure the service was excellent. Glad she had a good time.

  • Melissa Burton January 6, 2014

    When I read your adventures with Miss JST, I wish I had a daughter (for a second – I adore my little Wild Boy though). It looked like you all had a fabulous time!

    Love that there is a place for kid care (that you can trust) while the adults can go out for the night. When Jay and I went to the Wynn in Vegas last year, we took a friend’s daughter with us to be our sitter so we could enjoy some nightlife.

  • Sharon Garofalow January 6, 2014

    What I wouldn’t give to be your kid! 🙂 The hotel sounds amazing and I love all the little touches they put together for you!

  • Rajean January 7, 2014

    You had my interest at champagne welcome and cookies and milk at bedtime. The amenities look wonderful.

  • Tori January 8, 2014

    That looks like a lot of fun! I hope it was also as relaxing as it looks like it could’ve been! 🙂

  • Carrie Harris January 8, 2014

    What a lovely place…definitely looks like my kind of hotel!

  • joy | chemist2writer January 8, 2014

  • Cara January 9, 2014

    It sounds like you all had so much fun! This sounds like an amazing staycation too! Better then any I’ve ever had. Mine usually include cleaning. 🙂

  • mary January 9, 2014

    Looks like a very expensive place to stay at! But I guess that’s all worth it because you guys had so much fun! 🙂

  • Sheila January 9, 2014

    That is one heck of a luxurious suite and travel. She is a pro and i like her pose.

  • Kim Bergeron January 10, 2014

    What an amazing place and experience! I like to take my niece to special places when she comes to visit, this may be her trip for next year!

    My goodness, this looks like an outing that dreams are made of! Love!

  • Colleen Busch January 18, 2014

    Wow! Looks like an amazing high class experience. I am sooo jealout.

  • Rosey January 18, 2014

    You make it sound so very inviting. I love the attitude that came across in your post from those involved with your stay. A wonderful hotel is grand, but if there’s sour attitude involved, even the most wonderful of places can move way down on the list of where you want to stay.

    Thank you for sharing your great adventure!

  • Elizabeth Copeland January 18, 2014

    What a lovely weekend the three of you had. I especially liked the onsite childcare option! I always hate that away from home with kids along, I’m stuck without childcare.

  • mel January 18, 2014

    Looks like an awesome place to travel!

  • Terry January 18, 2014

    Date Night at a beautiful hotel like that sounds like a dream come true. Now you have made me want to go too!!! I don’t have a little Jet Setter…. but I do have my Hubs….

  • Suzi Satterfield March 10, 2014

    Oh, my. It doesn’t seem like “high end” and “kid friendly” go together very often, but it looks like Montage Beverly Hills made it happen!
