The iconic Beverly Wilshire has been hosting high rollers, celebs, execs and politicians since 1928, but it may be best known for its role in the beloved Julia Roberts film Pretty Woman (and guys will be psyched to know that Entourage regularly filmed here as well). This sleep is, appropriately, just steps from Rodeo Drive and boutiques by Tiffany and Co., Versace and Cartier are actually the view on one side of the hotel while the Hollywood Hills are the main view on the other. All guestrooms and suites are decorated in pale, creamy fabrics, with dark wood accents and Four Seasons’ classic mix of antique reproductions and modern furniture; all have marble bathrooms with soaking tubs. The spa, designed around a dramatic water wall, offers treatments ranging from Oshadi-clay body wraps to Balinese massages and that Diamond Life Infusion Facial from Natura Bissé. Make dinner reservations at the in-house CUT where cuisine by Wolfgang Puck is paired with design by Getty Center architect Richard Meier.
In the Area
There’s more to Beverly Hills than shopping on Rodeo Drive, though of course a walk down the famed street is a must, even if just for window shopping. Stop at Urth Caffe for a casual lunch and a cup of their signature coffee — it’s a locals’ haunt through and through (which in L.A. means celebs included). If you’re looking for a culture fix, it’s worth the 20-minute drive to the Getty Museum, which showcases European painting and sculpture as well as Greek and Roman antiquities — while still offering one of the best vistas of the city. Farther afield is the Malibu Golf Club, a William Francis Bell–designed course with gently rolling topography, perfect for a day spent admiring the landscape.
How to Get There
What a dump/. Ill bet the rooms havent been renovated since the 90s - if even that. At 700$ per night its not worth it. Must say that the location is great though. Convenient to get around the city and to get to the restaurants
I've been gathering my family at the Beverly Wilshire every year around the Christmas holiday season for a few years now, and the property and its staff is always outstanding. From the expansive holiday decorations to the hot chocolate cart every afternoon to the well-appointed guest rooms, this is a great, centrally located place to stay in Los Angeles.
Beverly Wilshire Beverly Hills is a classic, old school American luxury hotel with a very central location in Beverly Hills.
From the front side café (excellent location at the end/beginning of Rodeo Drive) and the hotel driveway you can smell the money covering this absurd part of the world. Fascinating with the decadence for a while.
Rooms are of course high quality, but also somewhat old fashioned. Really good bed. Fine bathroom. Missed some power outlet close to the working desk. Lift capacity were only adequate (3 for the back building). Some waiting time – not instant elevators here.
You will not lack service here but I’m not really impressed with the service at the Cut restaurant nor The Blvd cafe. Somewhat disorganized.
With location, hotel brand (Four Seasons) and basic quality in mind it is no surprise that the price is high, 600-700 dollars a night, and too high for most holiday makers.
To just get a glimpse: Walk though the drive way, let the doorman open the door for you and walk self confidence to The Blvd-café in front and study the life in the fast lane. A excellent class of California white wine will ‘just‘ set you back 20-25 dollars a glass.
Hotel was beautiful, staff was amazing, especially the drivers who were knowledgeable and personable. We were traveling, from the midwest, for our anniversary and we had balloons and a special treat waiting for us in the beautiful room. This hotel lived up to its reputation, will definitely stay again.
Wonderful decor and ambience here, as we propped the bar and downed a couple of beers. A nice view out to the intersection of Rodeo Drive and Wilshire Boulevard, nicely decorated for Christmas. Right in the heart of shopping heaven, this hotel is perfectly located to explore Beverly Hills.
