Webb in 1953 to build his flagship hotel on the West Coast. The official opening was August 12, 1955. Owned by Merv Griffin from 1987 to 2003, Beny Alagem and Oasis West Realty LLC purchased the 569-room hotel in 2003 and immediately embarked on a spectacular $80 million renovation, which was completed in 2008 . Since then, an additional $19 million in refresh updates have been made. The Beverly Hilton has hosted United States Presidents and royalty from John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge . The hotel has welcomed heads of state, international business leaders and renowned Hollywood celebrities. DESIGN: The Beverly Hilton is instantly recognizable with its retro exterior a nod to its mid- century architectural style. Conrad Hilton tapped renowned architect Welton Beckett (other projects include Capitol Records, The Music Center and LA Memorial Sports Arena) to design the hotel. While the exterior has stayed true to its roots, the interior and guest rooms have undergone several significant design updates to suit the modern discerning traveler. The icon of The Beverly Hilton is a starburst a symbol of space and freedom. Originally mounted over the grand staircase in the main lobby, this symbol was personified by a magnificent sculptured Starburst weighing 500 pounds and stretching to 15 feet, created by famed artist Bernard Rosenthal. Today, a portion of the original sculpture remains on display in The Oasis Courtyard.
