You’ve seen it before through the silver screen and you may have even envisioned yourself once gracing the halls of what is perhaps the world’s most iconic hotels; The Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel.
While Pretty Woman gave it the iconic status it retains to this day, a devoted team of professionals ensure the magic is ever-present in all facets of the hotel – from concierge through to a talented florist, the Beverly Wilshire team are passionate about their hotel and it shows.
Despite its world famous status and recognition, it is indeed this humble approach by staff that makes the BW stand out as a property of excellence in a competitive market where luxe hotels are in no shortage.
As you enter the property that is famously located at the peak of Rodeo Drive you cannot help but to feel effortless warmth that evokes from the walls of the spacious yet welcoming lobby entrance. With sun streaming through the entrance and filling the space effortlessly, the grandeur of the hotel is quite literally highlighted.
From there, I make my way inside the richly appointed mahogany guest elevator and proceed to my suite. Once inside, I cannot help but to notice the generous space on offer inside the Beverly Wilshire suites, of which are modestly decorate in warm neutral tones. While there are many requests from guests to stay inside ‘The Pretty Woman’ suite, no actual suite exists as such, leaving me to conclude that everyone inside the Beverly Wilshire can have relinquish in the idea that they are all inside their very own Pretty Woman suite. If you’re visiting the hotel as a loyal fan of the iconic movie, then you should be sure to schedule some time during your stay to visit the nail salon, which plays the film on repeat throughout the day.
At the cusp of Thanksgiving, the hotel undergoes a complete head-to-toe renovation to create a whimsical wonderland for the holiday season. This is undoubtedly one of the most magical times of year to visit Beverly Hills, as the community draws together to recreate homely Christmas cheer.
