STORY & PHOTOS

“Pretty Woman” is a classic. A prostitute gets swept away into the lap of luxury by a handsome stranger, and then – duh – they end up falling in love. The “lap of luxury” where Vivian experiences the high life is the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, not far from Rodeo Drive and all of its expensive shops.

You’ll recognize the striped awnings when you’re in the hotel’s vicinity.

If you’re sightseeing or window shopping (or actual shopping, if you’re lucky/wealthy) on Rodeo, Beverly, and Brighton, it’s worth a quick jaunt over to the Beverly Wilshire to experience a “Pretty Woman” moment.
