Movie Stars and McCarthy Salads: The Beverly Hills Hotel Turns 100


Opened by Hollywood hotelier Margaret Anderson in 1912, the Beverly Hills Hotel brought wealth, glamour, and real estate cachet to what was then an area with six homes and fields of lima beans. Robert S. Anderson, Margaret’s great-grandson and author of The Beverly Hills Hotel: The First 100 Years, shares photos and stories from the local legend’s past as it celebrates its centennial.
