Four years have passed since NBC botched a similar passing of the torch to Conan O'Brien.

In honor of the Beverly Hills centennial this year, interior designers Nina Petronzio, Tihany Design, Tom Ford Design, Ken Fulk and Forchielli Glynn each have designed a hotel suite that captures an era from the last century. The five participating hotels -- the Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows, the Montage Beverly Hills, the Beverly Hilton, L'Ermitage Beverly Hills and the Peninsula Beverly Hills -- all are familiar with luxury and high-end design. Inspired by celebrities and fashion, the rooms offer a history lesson as designers re-create moods from long ago while establishing a dialogue with the present.
