In which hotel did Pretty Woman live?

When we visited Rodeo Drive last year while we were in Los Angeles, I wanted to take the opportunity to visit the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills, known for the movie Pretty Woman. It is very luxurious and elegant and has a fantastic location right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The hotel consists of two buildings, the original and the newer about 10 floor high construction. These two are connected by a bridge on the second floor. If you exit the lobby in front of the hotel, you will find one of the famous Rodeo Drive. There, on one of the most famous shopping malls in the world with its many fine shops, you can easily and quickly spend at Gucci, Prada, Cartier, Dior or Louis Vuitton a small fortune.

The Beverly Wilshire became a tourist attraction through Pretty Women.

As a Pretty Woman fan I had to see the place where some scenes of the romantic love comedy starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts were shot. Since the movie I have wished to see the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. This time, I wanted to fulfill that wish.

In front of the hotel the arrival of the arriving guests was worth seeing! I have never seen so many high-end cars at once. Ferrari, Porsche, Rolls Royce, Audi, Bentley, the heart beats every car fan.

The guests were helped to get out, carried the pastries and of course the car parked. The porter at the door of the hotel greeted each guest very friendly and kept the front door open. Even us, who just wanted to take a drink and take some pictures. I asked him if I was allowed to take pictures, which he allowed me smiling.

The Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills, who would not like Vivian here!

Who would not like to rent like Vivian with Edward in the penthouse of this hotel? Take a hot bubble bath in the luxury bathtub and then watch a movie on TV?

At that time it was a series of I Love Lucy today maybe the movie Shads of Gray !

Surely almost everyone would immerse themselves for a short time in this world of luxury and experience magical moments against the wonderful backdrop of the city of Los Angeles? Of course, this wish can be fulfilled, but it has its price.

But you can also, without living there as we put on the terrace of the hotel restaurant and with a glass of wine or orange juice in an elegant atmosphere, the environment on itself.

The Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills is very popular with lovers and wedding couples and many actors and musicians have stayed here.

Elvis Presley and also John Lennon lived in this hotel for some time. The English royal family was one of the prominent guests as well as the Emperor Hirohito of Japan, or the Dalai Lama and many other celebrities and actors.

The location of the hotel is perfect, with the car only a few minutes to the tourist attractions Hollywood, Santa Monica or Universal Studios.


  • I am fascinated by luxury hotels somehow. Too bad that we did not come up with the same idea we came to our visit.

    The photos are wonderful! I do not know if I would have bothered to find the hote because of the movie, but in your case it was really worth it. Great pictures 🙂
    best regards

  • Dear Sigrid,

    great idea! I've never done that ... but also a way to get a taste of the atmosphere. The hotel looks great! Do you know what 1 night costs there? Would be great ... even to live there ... although it would have to be the suite ... and that is certainly not in my budget 😉 ...

    Nice blog post, as always <3!
    Greetings and good night!

  • Hello 🙂
    I am glad that you could fulfill your wish.
    I never thought of going to such a luxury hotel 😀
    But it seems to be very cool.

  • Oh, I would like to be there! I love ❤️ Pretty Woman 😉

  • I love Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. It is really breathtaking when you see all the expensive shops and houses. Meeega?

  • Oh no! How great is that, please? Of course I know the great movie and have to write such a report at some point! Hm, maybe USA next year ?!
    ... .walking down the street,


  • Whether the suite still looks the same as in the movie? There I would like to spend a night and then go shopping.

    • It was really interesting to be in this hotel and to stand in front of the famous elevator. LG Sigrid

  • how awesome! Pretty Women, as a woman, you have usually seen more than once and it is clear that it is exciting to introduce the hotel again 🙂
    I always have to think directly of this bathtub scene 😉

    Best regards too,
