Although the Beverly Wilshire Beverly Hills has been the setting for tons of iconic moments (both Elvis Presley and John Lennon used to lived there; President Barack Obama stays there), the historic hotel is best known for being the primary filming location for the 1990 classic Pretty Woman. Not shy about milking this cinematic credit, Beverly Wilshire is now offering a range of pampering packages themed around the movie in honor of its 25th anniversary.
There are four experiences to choose from: 1) Enjoy a diamond manicure or facial while watching Pretty Woman with champagne in hand at the spa; 2) Sip a "Pretty Woman Cocktail" at The Blvd. restaurant and take home a cocktail recipe card; 3) Have a drink called "She's Not My Niece" (remember that line?) at the hotel's Sidebar; 4) Upgrade your stay with the "Pretty Woman for a Day" package that features a personal shopping consultation, a chauffeured Rolls-Royce transport to Greystone Mansion for a romantic picnic or date. Call 310-275-5200 to book.
