Kandi Burruss has finally said “I do” to her longtime love.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star got hitched to Todd Tucker, one of the show’s former producers, before family and friends in Atlanta on Friday evening.

Kandi and Todd first met in 2011 during filming for Season 4 of Atlanta. Todd proposed on New Year’s Day 2013 in front of friends and family at the couple’s home. He got down on one knee and proclaimed his love with a stunning two-carat diamond sparkler by Gregg Ruth.

We couldn’t be happier for the adorable couple as they celebrate the start of their life together!

“Stylish, Sophisticated Sixties: A Re-Imagined Revolution” is the theme of The Beverly Hilton, located at 9876 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA. Its Suite is inspired by the sophisticated yet rebellious attitude of the 1960s, when The Beverly Hilton epitomized the era’s glamour. Guests will be consumed in this era of Givenchy, Hitchcock, the Beatles, and David Hicks-ian bold colors. The vintage Barbies and a record player/TV set on loan from the Grammy Museum are squeal-worthy. But what’s super awesome about this  is you can order off the hotel’s actual 1960s room service menu and enjoy those 1960s prices. You should definitely order a $2.50 Monte Cristo to go with your $1.15 gin martini. Turndown service comes with traditional milk and cookies. Rates start at $1,914.

The suite will be available through the rest of the year. Visit lovebeverlyhills.com/suite100 to learn more. Enjoy the 60s all over again!

Hosted at five of Beverly Hills’ most iconic hotels and spanning the glamorous 1940s to today, I can think of no better way to celebrate the Beverly Hills Centennial than Suite 100.

Conceived by Julie Wagner, CEO of the Beverly Hills Visitor Center, and brought to life by award-winning interior designer and experiential design consultant Susan Manrao, Suite 100 is the closest thing to time travel…literally!

Manrao is the project director BHCVB hired to help conceive, implement and oversee the program’s overall creative direction.  As a visionary for the project, she collaborated with the five properties to ensure a cohesive, interactive and multi-sensory end result.

Manrao says, “For the year of the centennial, I wanted each guests stay in a Suite 100 room to be a journey of discovery that would that would inspire them to return to the city throughout the year to visit all of the suites.  Each hotel suite has been curated to go beyond design, encompassing experiential elements and details to surprise and delight the guest. Suite 100 offers a collection of unique experiences that visitors will only encounter once in a lifetime.”

Rooms in five of the most iconic hotels in Beverly Hills have been redesigned to represent a defining era of the city’s history – The Montage is 1940s, The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows is 1950s, The Beverly Hilton is 1960s, L’Ermitage is 1970s and The Peninsula Beverly Hills represents the modern era.

Sounds fabulous, right? So, of course I was thrilled at the opportunity to attend a preview of what was to come, and, let me tell you, Suite 100 is all that was promised and more!

As someone drawn to décor, the visual aspects of the room really resonated. I immediately connected with the detail-oriented and thoughtful approach to creating a space capturing the essence of Marilyn Monroe and the 1950s.  The highly immersive experience at each property is a kind of limited edition event that ends this December.

The inventiveness involved in the overall creative inception of the program is not surprising if one visits Manrao’s Creative Registry Showroom and retail space on Fairfax, which features unusual, undiscovered and whimsical treasures.

But the most impressive fact about Suite 100 is that it’s so much more than simply theme-decorated rooms. Menu, music, transportation (imagine being chauffeured through Beverly Hills in a vintage car and era-attired driver!), magazines, a welcome cocktail of the era….Manrao’s collaboration with a team of internationally renowned designers appeals to all five senses to transport guests and give them an unforgettable stay.

The interactive and immersive aspects were perfect. Details which, combined with the wonderful, authentic feel of the rooms, will give guests an unforgettable and one-of-a-kind experience!

“Film Noir” is the theme of Montage Beverly Hills, located at 225 N. Canon Drive, Beverly Hills, CA. Its Suite 100, created by interior designer Nina Petronzio, captures the sultry sophistication and mystique that was epitomized in the 1940s by jaded detectives, femme fatales and smoky jazz clubs.

The suite will be available through the rest of the year. Visit lovebeverlyhills.com/suite100 to learn more.

A few weeks ago, hosted to tour five of Beverly Hills’ most luxurious hotels to celebrate Suite 100, a Century of Glamour. The program was conceived by the Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau.

The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows, Montage Beverly Hills, The Beverly Hilton, L’Ermitage Beverly Hills and The Pennisula Beverly Hills each were uniquely decorated in an effort to take guests who stay in the suite back in time from the past 100 years and showcase the world’s most glamour zip code.

So instead of clumping all five hotels in one blog post, I thought I would feature each separately by starting with The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows.

“The Golden Aged Inspired by the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe” is the theme of The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows, located at 9641 Sunset Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA. Designed by Tihany Design inspired by the elegant style of Paul Williams, the celebrated architect who designed the hotel’s Polo Lounge, signage and iconic pink and green color scheme. Continued inspiration was drew from the glamorous lifestyle of Marilyn Monroe, who often frequent the hotel as a guest.

These suites are available through the rest of the year. You can visit lovebeverlyhills.com/suite100 to learn more. Enjoy the celebration!
