Luxury Living: Diplomat Hotel
It's the place that headlined some of Hollywood's biggest names back in the 40's and 50's. Today, the new Westin Diplomat is still a gorgeous getaway. Shireen Sandoval takes us inside the latest Luxury Living report.
(WSVN) -- It was a hang out for Hollywood's elite -- the rat pack trio of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior and Dean Martin.
But in 1999, an implosion leveled the old Diplomat in Hollywood.
Today, it's the Westin diplomat resort and spa, and its' still the place to see and be seen.
Director of Sales and Marketing, Joe DeMille: "This was the place to come back then, this is now the place to come again."
In fact, celebrities like Matt Damon, Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher like to call it a night here.
And when they do, they like to stay in a suite.
At the Westin, you can choose from 100 of them, including this 24-hundred square foot suite on the penthouse floor.
Joe DeMille: "In luxury we have two presidential suites, and we start there."
For 6-thousand dollars a night... You can relax in the presidential suite's living room...
Take a nap in one of its' two bedrooms...
Make some calls from the study...
Have dinner catered in your private kitchen...
Or eat in the full size dining room.
Joe DeMille: "We are elegance right here at home. Our brand Westin is all about modern luxury, and people have the advantage of taking advantage of the diplomat right here in their hometown."
And checking into a suite has its perks -- like entrance to this private club.
Here you can have a drink while your personal concierge books your daily activities.
Plus everyone who stays at the Westin can take a swim in the two-story pool.
Check out cabana number 14 -- It's where Madonna and hubbie, Guy Ritchie spent the day lounging around.
There's also the country club, the diplomat country club and that's part of our luxury collection and that's where tennis, golf and of course, the spa.
This is luxury at its best.
The Westin has special rates for Florida residents this summer... So although you may not be a celebrity, you can certainly live it up like one.
