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
I don’t plan a trip to LA unless I know that I can get a room at the Beverly Wilshire. The hotel is comfortable...and quirky (especially if you stay on the 8th floor0. The best part is the staff..I have never stayed at a hotel with a warmer, more helpful staff.
First time we have stopped at the Wilshire, from check in to check out everything was perfect, we stopped to celebrate our anniversary and we will be back next year for a longer stay, the food/staff/hotel/location are all perfect, Cut restaurant was the best Steak I have ever tasted.
The building itself and lobby are sumptuous. We enjoyed our drinks on the terrace (secret rose garden) offering an outstanding view over Rodeo Drive. Cocktails were delicious and the service was impeccable !
This property is ideally located for visiting Beverly Hills and Hollywood. The staff is very attentive and personal. Hotel lives up to the Four Seasons standard of excellence. Rooms on the 11th and 12th floors facing north have views of the Hollywood and Beverly Hills
The hotel has an unbeatable location right at the foot of Rodeo Drive for high-end shopping, and surrounded by numerous restaurants of all price levels.
The rooms are in good condition though in need of updating. However, the service makes up, and the prices are fair enough everything considered. Front Desk and Guest Services staff were especially pleasant and welcoming.
Housekeeping procedures and management should be reviewed. During a 9-day stay, simple instructions I gave upon arrival were generally ignored, and my room was made up/restocked a different way almost every day. Simple tasks (delivering laundry, delivering packages) were made complicated.
