These are just renderings The Hotel Bel-Air, which has been closed for renovations since October 2009, is now accepting reservations and has an official reopen date of October 15, according to HotelChatter. As we reported in April, rooms will start at $565 per night and include 12 new villas and 7 specialty suites. There'll also be a La Prairie-run spa and three loft-style guestrooms in what a press release calls a "Spanish mission style structure featuring a new bell tower." The guestroom shampoos and shower gels will also be La Prairie, because you sure can't use your Prell at a swank joint like this.
