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
My favorite hotel. Staff and location is great. Walk to great restaurants in the heart of Beverly Hills. My room was beautiful. Service was amazing they always knew my name. The pool was nice and quite and I was able to catch up on my book.
We had a suite overlooking the hills for our family of 4. It was the perfect amount of space. It had a huge balcony with doors off both rooms. It was a great alternative to adjoining rooms. The rooms are really spacious so you don't feel like you are on top of each other. The suites have a foyer and a walk in wardrobe so there are lots of places to store your bags. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel special.
Left me very underwhelmed. There are so many nicer and more interesting hotels in Los Angeles, for the same room price. There was nothing bad about the room, or the hotel, but there was nothing that stood out about it either, other than the drunk middle aged man in the elevator that made inappropriate remarks.
