Anchoring the south end of Rodeo Drive at Wilshire Boulevard, this hotel may be best known for its exterior: It's the place where Richard Gere ensconced himself with Julia Roberts in the movie Pretty Woman. But inside, this hotel has been an opulent house of luxury since opening in 1928 and it's the place to splurge on a room overlooking Rodeo drive for the quintessential Beverly Hills experience in convenient proximity to all of the luxe shops. It's a preferred
address of the rich and famous that includes a 8,000-square-foot spa where travelers are primed to indulge in pampering services including manicure/pedicures where Pretty Woman runs on a loop, the Pool Bar & Café, and luxurious poolside cabanas. Need a break in the day? Dip a toe in the glamour of it all and sit courtside to the parade of Jimmy Choos and Louboutins at their restaurant THE Blvd on Wilshire overlooking Rodeo Drive.
