The Beverly Hills Hotel turns 100 years old on May 12, cause enough for the hotel to serve a $100 cocktail in a take-home glass coupe engraved with its centennial design. Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and John Lennon slept here, as did many other luminaries.

Now the hotel is chronicling its fabdom in words and pictures with the arrival of the book "The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows -- The First 100 Years" by Robert S. Anderson, as well as special centennial-themed offers. My favorite pick: a facial, mani-pedi or massage at the day spa, on sale for $100 each.

The deal: You don't have to be a guest to take advantage of the deals at the hotel's Spa by La Prairie. Selected treatments -- the Pink Palace Manicure and Pedicure, Diamond Anniversary Facial and/or the Caviar Express Massage -- are discounted to $100 each. Make reservations in advance at La Prairie, which is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

When: The offer is good though the end of the year.

Tested: I checked the spa treatment menu online and found that mani-pedis usually cost about $160, facials start at $210 and the massage goes for $215. So cash in on a little pampering at this Southern California landmark.
