It’s the 25th anniversary of Pretty Woman and what better way to celebrate the romantic comedy classic than to have your own Julia Roberts moment at the Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel), where the movie was filmed.

During this glamorous weekend getaway for two, guests can live out their “Pretty Woman” fantasy in in the “Pretty Woman” Suite (aka the luxurious Presidential Suite).  The fantasy comes in three different over-the-top stay packages that cost from $15,000-$100,000. Wannabe Richard Geres and Julia Roberts can enjoy accommodations in one of two Presidential Suites (Beverly or Wilshire), overlooking a view of the Hollywood Hills. The package includes a Rolls-Royce to Greystone Mansion for a romantic “shoeless” picnic, where you’ll sample cuisine inspired by the picnic scene from the movie, a 90-minute couples massage, and diamond manicure and pedicure at the Spa at Beverly Wilshire. Oh yes, to be sure that you’ll  be dressed to impress, it also includes a personal shopping excursion on Rodeo Drive.

The most extraordinary “Pretty Woman” experience is the Ultimate package. Setting you back a cool $100,000, it includes a stay in the hotel’s Presidential Suite, a three-hour shopping trip on Rodeo Drive,and a five-hour picnic.

Couples who purchase the extravagant package are also given 90-minute massages, diamond manicures and pedicures, and clothing allowances of $2,000 per person.

Whether its indulging in a star-studded pampering package, a manicure and pedicure at The Nail Bar while watching the movie and enjoying some champagne, or sipping Pretty Woman themed cocktails at both THE Blvd restaurant and CUT by Wolfgang Puck, there are plenty of ways for any guest to take part in the celebration.

For 25 years the Garry Marshall flick has been a rich part of the hotel’s history that many guests, near and far, have a special connection to.  For me, it was and still is one of my favorite romantic comedies. Even my husband, for all his disdain of chic flicks, seems to enjoy it and will sometimes quote a line.

      Hi Anna,

      That’s good that you at least got to see it. The stretch of shops and boutiques on Rodeo Drive is only three blocks long and a fun place for people watching. Next time, you need to walk around and check out some of the upscale stores.

    Thanks for all the great photos because I probably will never get to see the Presidential Suite at the Beverly Wilshire with my own eyes. On the other hand, I’ve traveled to places that I never thought I’d see, so anything is possible. This does look like a very posh holiday. I’ve had my own Pretty Woman experience, but it’s the one where the people at the store treat her badly.

      Hi Michele,

      The Beverly Wilshire Hotel has other rooms that made not be the Presidential Suite, but they are just as nice. I had a similar experience when we went shopping for prom dresses. We went to a fancy local dress store, dressed very casual. I was looking at a rack of dresses, when the sales lady said to me those dresses are very expensive. I turned to her and said yes, and I can afford them and your whole store if I like. I was so upset that I walked out. What gives people the right to assume and treat you that way.

      Hi Jamie,

      I know it’s hard to believe that it’s been that long since the movie came out. It definitely sounds like an amazing weekend package, and I’m sure it is with that price tag. 🙂

    I love the idea of the shoeless picnic! Sounds like a very well-thought out package

      Hi Suze,

      I agree, a picnic does sound very romantic. It’s a weekend getaway you’ll never forget.

    25 years? Are you kidding me? Wow, that time flew past. Great movie and a great review of the lovely Beverly Wilshire suites. I’d love a pedi at the Nail Bar.

      Hi Lyn,

      It’s hard to believe over two decades have past already since the movie was released. It really makes me feel old just thinking about it. 🙂
