Staying at the iconic Beverley Wilshire Hotel in Beverley Hills, California was made a little more special due to memories I had from watching the 1990 hit movie Pretty Woman. From seeing the grandeur and luxury of this property initially on the silver screen over 25 years ago, I could not wait to get there. In essence, that movie introduced me to the world of luxury hotels.
Walking down Wilshire Blvd toward the property, I instantly felt that I was in the heart of luxury, as the famous intersection of Rodeo Drive and Wilshire Blvd is right in front of the hotel.
Walking into the lobby was surreal. I was immediately drawn tot he fantastic floral centrepiece in the middle of the lobby with the spectaculr chadelier hanging above it. This centerpiece that separated the Front Desk Reception to my left and the Concierge Desk to my right. It’s a small but effective use of the space so that guests can quickly receive the type of service they need without confusion.
The staff at the front desk staff was extremely attentive and welcoming and we were quickly and effieciently check-in and being personally escorted to our room. Four Seasons properties always seem to have excellent staff that provide some of the best customer service in the world of luxury hotels, and the staff at Beverley Wilshire were definitely of this calibre.
The Beverley Wilshire is split into two buildings with rooms in both. The main building, where reception and the concierge are located, also has their signature steak restaurant, “The Cut” (by Wolfgang Puck), as well as THE Blvd restaurant, an excellent venue with amazing food, service and indoor or outdoor (right on Wilshire Blvd) seating options. Our room was located in the adjacent building which could be easily accessed by walking thrrough their central driveway (between the buildings) or by going upstairs to an overhead walkway.
Our room was the One-Bedroom Beverly Suite. It was very spacious, with a floor plan that separated the bedroom from the bathroom with a large livingroom in between. The balcony outside was quite large and provided a nice of the the center of Beverley Hills and the Hollywood Hills off in the distance to our slight right. Here is the room:
As mentioned previously, the balcony in our room at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel was quite large and included comfortable seating to gaze over Beverley Hills and the Hollywood Hills:
Circled in red in the picture below is the famous Hollywood sign, although very far in the distance, it was still a treat to be able to seeit from the balcony. The tower in the center of the picture is Beverley Hill City Hall.
A safe, bath robes, and slippers were also provided in the room:
The bathroom was gorgeous and stacked with amenities by L’Occitane and Salvatore Ferragamo:
Overall, the room was very comfortable and we could not have asked for anything more. An added treat was the welcome amenity and the personalized note that was waiting for us when we arrived:
The facility at the Beverley Wilshire Hotel was absolutely fantastic, with a relaxing pool area that included a Pool Bar & Cafe:
For breakfast, we took adavntage of the great weather in Beverley Hills and chose seating at The Blvd Restaurant right on Wilshire Blvd overlooking the intersection of Wilshire and Rodeo Drive. It was a delicious meal enjoyed with great scenery:
For dinner, we had to experience the famous Cut Restaurant by Wolfgang Puck, and we were not disappointed:
Another great perk at the Beverley Wilshire Hotel is their car service that provides guests with free transportation within a 4km (2.5 mile) radius of the property:
