Legendary. Iconic. Memorable.
Host Hotel:
The Beverly Hilton
9876 Wilshire Boulevard
Beverly Hills, California 90210
We’ll be staying at the iconic Hollywood hotel (it is state of mind and maybe not an actual Hollywood address), The Beverly Hilton. In addition to the retreat activities fees, and for only $215.00 a night plus applicable taxes and parking, you’ll enjoy luxury service as if you’re an industry star.
Please know we’ve secured this very special rate and all hotel bookings/changes, etc. must go through The Trusteeship and not with the hotel directly. Also, because of our special rate, the Hilton can not use any personal Hilton points towards your room fee nor can points be issued for these two nights.
  • Transportation will be provided for all activities on Saturday if you so choose to ride with us.
