In Hollywood, turning 50 means it’s time for a facelift. It’s no surprise then that the hotel at Sportsmen’s Lodge began a
major overhaul after hitting the half-century mark. The 190 rooms, which have hosted celebs from Bobby Kennedy to Beach Boy
Brian Wilson, now feature modern white furniture with lime and tangerine accents and white-quartz counters in the bathrooms.
Palm Springs–style cabanas and a sporty new bar that picks up the citrus hues of the interior were added outdoors alongside
the swimming pool. The nostalgic among us can still enjoy huevos rancheros and stuffed French toast at the iconic—and untouched—Patio
Café, a favorite of everyone from John Wayne to Miley Cyrus.
