Beverly Hills has long been the backdrop for major films, but none have captured the style and opulence of the city quite like Pretty Woman. With the 25th anniversary of the iconic feature film, visitors can experience the spirit of the movie firsthand in Beverly Hills, where Edward (Richard Gere) and Vivian (Julia Roberts) fell in love.
Stay at any of Beverly Hills’ glamorous and renowned hotels, such as The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows, Montage Beverly Hills, Peninsula Beverly Hills or the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel and you’ll feel like royalty. Hotels in Beverly Hills are known for their luxurious accommodations, personalized service with attention to every detail and sumptuous dining. Whether you prefer grand hotels or more intimate boutique accommodations, Beverly Hills has a variety of acclaimed hotels for you to choose from when booking your Pretty Woman vacation.
Those who want to shop just like Vivian did in the movie can choose from any number of boutiques offering designer couture, trendsetting styles and wardrobe classics. Splurge at the biggest names in fashion on Rodeo Drive, including the recently renovated Louis Vuitton and Gucci or flagship locations of Prada or Chanel. You can even shop in the store where Vivian did, but unlike the movie, you’ll be greeted by warm and welcoming staff, who anticipate your every need. If you want to feel even more like a celebrity, you can hire a personal shopper who will act as your very own stylist helping you select from the styles and stores that best meet your needs.
Once you’re done with shopping, forgo the bubble bath in the hotel bathtub and opt for a more lavish spa experience to ease your tired muscles. Most hotels offer signature spa and beauty services on property, providing a wide selection of revitalizing treatments within steps of your room, such as hydro-facials, detoxifying body wraps, diamond and crystal facial and body treatments, deluxe nail and hair services and much more. If you crave pampering outside of your hotel, day spas, skin care and beauty salons are located throughout the entire city. Salons such as Blown on Canon and Valerie Beverly Hills are perfect for that celebrity makeover, and day spas, such as Obagi Skin Health Institute Beverly Hills and Thibiant Beverly Hills will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, no matter what service you choose.
When you’re ready to dine with your sweetheart for an intimate dinner out, look no further than “Little Restaurant Row” on Canon Drive. You’ll find some of the most globally-celebrated and most romantic restaurants line this street, such as the classic Spago, delectable Mastro’s or the new Spaghettini & the Dave Koz Lounge. From Italian cuisine to expertly prepared steaks and seafood, Canon Drive has a gourmet taste for every palate. Or, if you’re looking for the most romantic ambiance with your dinner, book a romance package at Il Cielo, where you can enjoy your meal with a setting of fresh rose petals, 24” taper candle, a heart-shaped cake and champagne.
