Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel If you have seen the movie, “Pretty Woman,” there is no doubt, after watching it, that you would want to see where part of the movie was filmed. Even better, why not stay at The Regent Beverly Wilshire, the hotel where Julia Roberts and Richard Gere did in the movie? (It was actually only filmed in the lobby - the famous Penthouse suite was a Hollywood set).
Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel Guest of this famous hotel include Elvis Presley, Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Beatles and Mick Jagger.

Last year, the Regent Beverly Wilshire, under the management of Four Seasons Hotels, underwent a $35 million renovation complete with newly decorated guest rooms, restaurants and public areas.

You must choose to stay between two wings of the hotel - the Beverly or Wilshire. The Wilshire offers more traditional accommodations whereas the Beverly hosts a modern, deco-style design.

“The increased number of rooms and suites was made possible by opening the top six floors of the Beverly Wing in response to increased demand by discerning travelers,” said Peter O’Colmain, Vice President and General Manager of the hotel. “For the first time in the hotel’s history, both wings are equally inviting with new decorations and all of our accommodations are available for guests.”

We stayed a night in the Beverly Wing, which was built in 1971. The design of our room incorporated furniture in a modern deco style with mahogany and Asian influences.

The hotel’s 395 guest rooms are superior or deluxe accommodations. Guests may also choose the Veranda Suite with 750 square feet and a private stairway entrance to the two-bedroom suite with two bathrooms and 1,530 square feet.

The hotel is located at the most desirable address in town - at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Rodeo Drive - in the heart of Beverly Hills.

Our room in the Beverly Wing had a large Italian marble bathroom with separate shower and tub. The rooms on floors 7-12 of this wing were totally reconstructed because they were unavailable to guests for the past 10 years. Most have balconies and expansive views of the city.

The hotel is the only one in the city to offer two presidential suites - one in the Beverly Wing and one in the Wilshire. Guests can reserve a room in either suite for a mere $5,000 per night for the Wilshire Suite or $7,500 per night for the Beverly.

The hotel, celebrating its 70th anniversary last year, sits proudly amid the glamour of the Hollywood entertainment industry.
