The Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills is the first hotel to offer guest packages that include access to the new VIP terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.

The Waldorf's Private Suite Package gives guests access to the Private Suite, an LAX-adjacent terminal where guests who seek privacy and expediency can skip security and boarding lines and board their planes through a dedicated gate.

The Private Suite, which opened last year and offers annual membership of $4,500 a year, provides private TSA screening and customs and immigration processing. Private Suite guests are driven across the tarmac to their planes via a BMW 7-Series sedan.

Gavin de Becker & Associates, which owns the Private Suite concept, estimates that its service reduces the typical number of footsteps a passenger has to take between the curbside and boarding gate from 2,200 to 70.

The Waldorf Beverly Hills' Private Suite package also includes access to the Private Suite that's operated out of the nearby Westfield Century City shopping mall, which provides members a separate entrance, a private vehicle courtyard and a security gate.

No prices have been disclosed for the Private Suite Package.

The 170-room Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills opened last year.
