We recently escaped to The Beverly Wilshire, an iconic Four Seasons Hotel perhaps best known from Pretty Woman. With front doors that open onto Rodeo Drive, we were excited for a glamorous getaway in the heart of Beverly Hills. If you’re looking for where to stay in Beverly Hills, come along as I share postcards from our Beverly Hills vacation.
It’s the little things that make my heart sing, like the scalloped edges of the balconies at The Beverly Wilshire, and the awe-inspiring views from our balcony.
We channeled our inner Julia Roberts and Richard Gere (I’ll let you guess who was who) and enjoyed a languorous sun-filled breakfast on our balcony.
Speaking of, you can even book a Pretty Woman for a Day experience.
While we didn’t do that, I did put on a pretty dress and felt more glamorous than I have in quite some time.
And I also indulged my lazy side.
Slow mornings in bed with The New York Times are always such a treat, especially when the bedding is SO good it has Fred Baby questioning aloud why we don’t iron our sheets at home.

Here’s a peek at our one-bedroom suite.
It was a treat to have a living room, a bedroom, two bathrooms and two balconies.
The service was also seamless and so accommodating.
You can download the Four Seasons app to check in, check out and make requests for everything from valet to having a microwave and refrigerator delivered to your room, which we did since I still can’t eat out and have to bring my own food. #makeitwork
That said, The Beverly Wilshire has the restaurant CUT on property, by renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, as well as THE Blvd, a perfect place to sit on the terrace and people watch. And the people watching is entertaining. (Aren’t those yellow-and-white striped awnings great too?)
At the intersection of Wilshire and Rodeo, super cars — and stars — abound. Also, you could literally have Breakfast at Tiffany’s, as it’s directly across the street.
The central location makes exploring sans car totally feasible – a rare treat in LA. We enjoyed leisurely strolls down Rodeo Drive and around Beverly Hills.
Of course, I especially enjoyed window shopping.
I’m always so astounded by the architecture and design of iconic shops like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Hermes.
Talk about eye candy!
After a day of strolling around Beverly Hills, we headed over to The Hollywood Bowl for a date with Dolly…Parton that is!
If you’re visiting LA, you must see a show at The Hollywood Bowl. It doesn’t even matter what the show is, it’s just that worth it. You can picnic outside of The Bowl before the show, as we did with our friends Kim and Andre, and then head “inside” for a night to remember, another truly iconic LA experience.
Thank you to The Beverly Wilshire for a lovely stay!
We can’t wait to return!

Sizing tip: I’m wearing a Ted Baker size 2 (they have a different sizing system beginning with 1). In my experience, Ted Baker runs slightly small, so if you are in between sizes, choose the higher number.
