Beverly Wilshire – Beverly Hills, California

I recognized the Beverly Wilshire from the 1990 movie Pretty Woman, starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. The hotel was the primary setting for the movie. Though I was surprised to learn that most of the interior scenes were from the nearby defunct Ambassador Hotel. HBO’s Entourage TV series was also filmed there.

Constructed in 1928, the hotel changed hands multiple times and had grown over time. During Pretty Woman, it was known as The Regent Beverly Wilshire. Today, it’s part of the upscale Four Seasons Chain.

If I had the time, I would’ve loved to shoot the interior. I enjoy photographing elaborate interiors. That would have to wait for another opportunity.
