The Beverly Hilton Is Turning 60 With a Celebratory Giveaway

Win a two-night stay, dinner, and more as part of the iconic hotel’s anniversary contest

After nearly 20 years of covering parties at the Beverly Hilton, the fact that the hotel is celebrating their 60th anniversary has made me nostalgic. It’s where I first met up-and-comers Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, giddy after winning the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay for their film Good Will Hunting. It’s where I ran into Michael Jackson and his date, Elizabeth Taylor, at the Carousel of Hope Ball. Jackson bought Taylor a diamond and emerald necklace in the shape of monkeys and pointed it out to me in an excited whisper. It is also the place where I sometimes encounter my fellow self-parkers—Jon Voight, Jay Leno, and Diana Ross—in the elevator going down to the garage. Voight has even walked me to my car on occasion (he’s a gent). The hotel has a special place in my heart, and there isn’t enough room on the Internet for all of my stories.

Do you have fond memories of your own? The hotel is holding a contest in which Angelenos submit their favorite photos taken at the iconic property. Your Beverly Hilton nostalgia can win you (and a guest):

  • A two-night stay at the Beverly Hilton in a studio suite for two
  • Two tickets to their 60th Anniversary Party (complete with hair and makeup)
  • Two spa treatments
  • Dinner for two at CIRCA 55
  • Two tickets to a TMZ tour experience

You can enter the contest by tagging your fave throwback #BeverlyHilton photos with #Sweet60 on Twitter or Instagram or upload an entry to the hotel’s Facebook page. Winners will be announced on Friday, July 24. Good luck!
