“Maison 140 is an outstanding addition to Gemstone’s growing collection of ‘one-of-a-kind’ hotels in top destination markets with high barriers to new entry,” said Thomas Prins, Gemstone principal, in an announcement. “With the addition of this lifestyle hotel, we now can meet the needs of a different demographic: the younger, Beverly Hills visitor who is looking to sample all that the city has to offer, from a convenient, stylish hotel.”
The 44-room Maison 140 was built in 1939 as residential apartments owned by silent film star, Lillian Gish. While the exterior maintains its original facade, complete with dormers and a red lacquered door, each guest room is a unique creation.
“Maison 140 is the second addition to our portfolio this year,” said Jeff McIntyre, Gemstone principal. “The hotel occupies a unique niche in the Beverly Hills market, catering to young, urban clientele that appreciates a hip and sophisticated style. It’s an outstanding asset on its own, and coupled with The Mosaic, gives us a strong foothold in a city that shares clientele with other markets where we operate, like Boston and New York.”
Each guestroom is appointed with Chinoiserie screens, hand-tufted European carpets, and gilded furnishings, along with hypo-allergenic down pillows and comforters, Sferra-designed linens and bathrobes, complimentary WiFi, and flat-screen televisions.
