Managing Director Ali Kasikci introduces five-star offerings such as the two-person Montage Airport Luggage Valet service to eliminate delays at the airport. Other offerings at Montage Beverly Hills include Pratesi "Paradise" linens and complimentary access to Mercedes-Benz automobiles.

Montage Beverly Hills, the first new luxury property built in the city in more than 16 years, introduces one-of-a-kind, added-value services and amenities for a seamless travel experience. With an intimate understanding of today's leisure, business and international traveler's needs, Managing Director Ali Kasikci honed his 30 years in the luxury hospitality industry to identify the next generation of service standards, ranging from a fleet of complimentary Mercedes-Benz luxury cars to Montage Airport Luggage Valet service.

Ali Kasikci has a reputation for pushing the boundaries of hotel "policy", and in doing so, he has garnered more consecutive AAA Five Diamond and Mobil Five-Star awards than any other hotelier. His fresh and highly intuitive philosophy addresses the desires of discerning and well-traveled guests. His sole objective is to make certain there is never an intermission in the first-class experience from the time the traveler departs on the plane to the time he arrive safely at home. In 1996, Kasikci revolutionized the hotel industry with his 24-Hour Flexible Check-In/Check-Out, earning Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration "Best Practices" Champion recognition.

Kasikci introduces Montage Beverly Hills' unprecedented option of Montage Airport Luggage Valet service, affording guests the opportunity to forgo delays commonly associated with airport baggage retrieval. Montage Beverly Hills guests are met at the arrival baggage area by two Montage Beverly Hills greeters in separate vehicles. The first attendant obtains the guest's luggage locator ticket, waits for the bags to arrive on the carousel, and then transports them discreetly to the hotel. Simultaneously, the second attendant escorts the guest directly from the airport terminal into to the curbside vehicle, where he is immediately taken to the property.

Mindful of ensuring a gracious guest experience, Montage Beverly Hills has also created the following added-value services and amenities:

Complimentary Access To A Fleet of Mercedes-Benz Automobiles:
Guests booking the Montage Beverly Hills Suites - including Corner Suites, Superior Suites, Deluxe Suites, Grand Deluxe Suites, Governor's Suite and Presidential Suites - will receive a complimentary Mercedes-Benz to drive during their stay. The luxury fleet can range from an SL 63 AMG performance convertible to the flagship S-Class Sedan and is available throughout the guest's stay based on availability. Each Mercedes-Benz is equipped with an in-dash navigation system that uses Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites to determine the car location, a useful feature for visitors to the Los Angeles area.

24-Hour Flexible Check-In / Check-Out:
Affording guests the utmost flexibility and convenience is paramount to the Montage Beverly Hills experience. Realizing that, this service ensures a guest's room is ready for check-in upon arrival, regardless of the time, and belongs to the guest for a full 24-hours. For example, guests who advise the property of a 9 a.m. arrival will have a room fully prepared according to his preference promptly at check-in.

Governor And Presidential Suites Dressed in Pratesi Italian Linens:
Offering guests respite replete with splendor, Montage Beverly Hills has forged a unique partnership with Pratesi linens, one of the most elegant Italian linens. The Governor and Presidential suites are outfitted in Paradise, the ultimate masterpiece of Athos Pratesi where purity of style and simplicity are enhanced by the precious beauty of this rarest of all cotton fabrics in the world. It is produced using Firmamento cotton, woven at 380 threads per square inch and takes one week to weave just 10 meters of this fabric, making it an achievement that is both eternally beautiful and wholly original. The opulent Pratesi clad Presidential and Governor suites easily connect, providing a four-bedroom residence with an internal hallway, offering the utmost privacy, discretion and grandeur.

In further creating the perfect balance between form and function in luxury bedding, Montage Beverly Hills offers a uniquely designed pillows configuration. Five pillows have been carefully selected and configured for each guestroom, two in the back have a fill of 70 percent down, making them more supportive, and ideal for relaxing, while the two front pillows have 100 percent down content, making them best for sleeping. The fifth pillow is a smaller neck pillow, which is personalized with the guest's monogram and perfect for reading.

Complimentary John Lobb Certified Shoe Butler:
Kasikci aims to revitalize an often-routine luxury hotel offering - the complimentary shoe-shine. As part of Montage Beverly Hills' service to guests, it provides this special treatment overnight, using the finest John Lobb shoe polish to ensure the highest quality shine and care. The John Lobb certified butler underwent a 22-hour training course to ensure guests' shoes are consistently and expertly maintained.

AGRARIA Golden Pomegranate, Exclusive Scent to Montage Beverly Hills:
Agraria's delicately scented golden pomegranate luxury bath products, which include a triple-milled French bath bar, bath salts, hand & body lotion, shampoo and conditioner is offered exclusively to all of the guests at Montage Beverly Hills. With his guests in mind, Kasikci requested custom-designed packaging, including twist-off tops designed for easy travel and to avoid unintended spray or spillage.

Custom-Designed Suit Hangers:
Kasikci's impeccable attention to detail led to the creation of custom-designed hangers for Montage Beverly Hills. While many of the property's guests enjoy tailor-made garments, Kasikci felt it imperative their clothes are properly maintained. The Montage Beverly Hills wooden hanger offers a wider and extra-padded shoulder, to ensure the utmost care.
