'Tis the season of holiday house guests.

Create a luxe experience for out-of-towners with these tips from Lauren Rottet, founder of Rottet Studio, the design firm responsible for the new bungalows at the celeb-fave Beverly Hills Hotel, which has housed stars like Angelina Jolie, Usher, and Vince Vaughn.

First, start off with a warm welcome. "Greet guests with hot cider and warm lavender-scented towels," Rottet tells

In the bathrooms, supply guests with a robe along with luxe products. "Try L'Occitane hand soaps and lotions in the guest bath and Shu Uemura hair products," Rottet tells Us. "You won't be able to get rid of your guests!"

At bedtime, offer them a "pillow menu" featuring an assortment of firm and soft options. Then, place a water bottle and glass and two chocolates on a plate by the bed.

For a finishing touch, place a white linen or all-cotton mat at the foot of the bed along with a favorite mystery novel, Rottet suggests.
