There’s nothing quite like having a home away from home. For Marilyn Monroe and Howard Hughes, among a handful of other Hollywood celebrities and billionaires, home away from home was a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Recently, the hotel unveiled two redesigned bungalows inspired by these very guests. The collection of bungalows, originally introduced in 1915 for families who wanted more space and privacy, is undergoing a comprehensive restoration and redesign helmed by Champalimaud. The Monroe-inspired “Bungalow 1” features a library chock-full of classic Monroe books and films as well as a comprehensive list of amenities, including a champagne bubble bath.

“Bungalow 3”—inspired by billionaire Howard Hughes, who lived in the bungalows on-and-off for three decades—features an aviation cocktail kit and collection of model airplanes, paying homage to the record-setting pilot’s laundry list of achievements. Once the restoration is complete, 21 bungalows will have been updated, five of which feature distinct design elements inspired by the Hollywood figures who frequented them.

These extensions of the hotel are no stranger to the residential feel so inherent to the Dorchester Collection’s Beverly Hills Hotel. So, if you’re looking for your next home away from home, the bungalows are your best move.
