What we love
When we're at the Beverly Wilshire we can't help pretending we're movie stars. Hide behind of pair of Jackie O shades and who's to know?
Setting the scene
In the heart of Beverly Hills, just a few steps from Rodeo Drive and oozing Hollywood glamour is the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Still resonating with the ghostly sounds of the director's instructions to Julia Roberts in the filming of Pretty Woman, it not only looks Hollywood, it feels it too. Lavishly yet tastefully decorated it retains a sense of refinement in amongst the flash of cameras and bustle of notoriety.
The rooms and suites are shared across two wings; the Wilshire wing is the original building on the corner of Wilshire and Rodeo whilst the newer wing looks out across the city of LA and is more contemporary in design. Each room, in either wing, is fully equipped with all modern conveniences and a marble bathroom, and most have stunning views over LA.
The restaurants of the Beverly Wilshire are some of LA's most frequented by Hollywood's elite and those in the know. Renowned CUT restaurant is Wolfgang Puck's innovative twist on the American Steakhouse, offering an array of creative steak and seafood dishes. Long evenings lounging with friends whilst trying (subtly) to spot celebs is best done in the Blvd Lounge whilst sipping cocktails and fine wines.
The Beverly Wilshire, like all good hotels, has a spa which caters for your every pampering need. And of course there are the shops and celeb-frequented haunts that aren't to be missed. But the pi�ce de r�sistance is the opportunity to be Pretty Woman for a Day! Probably something that would appeal more to women than men, but it takes all sorts, you are given the chance to recreate your favourite moments from the movie. During this glamorous weekend for two you will stay in the 'Pretty Woman Suite' (aka the Presidential Suite), you will have a personal shopping consultation on Rodeo Drive, enjoy a 'shoeless' picnic, then after being 'styled' in your room will enjoy a night at the opera.
Children are welcome at the Beverly Wilshire and are well catered for.
