The glamorous LA hotel where Pretty Woman was filmed is now offering a “urban camping” experience, setting up a massive tent on a terrace where guests can stay and admire views of the Hollywood Hills and Rodeo Drive.
The Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel, is opening up its Veranda Suite terrace with a new glamping experience. The massive suite in the only in the hotel with its own floor, and is accessible by an original wrought iron and marble staircase at the property, which opened in 1928.
Like any LA landmark, the Beverly Wilshire has rooted itself in Hollywood history. Celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Warren Beatty and Steve McQueen have all lived in the hotel and it was used as a filming location in Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Clueless, Sex and the City: The Movie and most famously, Pretty Woman.
The suite has an incredible 2140-square-foot terrace that provides amazing views of LA. There on the terrace, guests will find a massive tent that houses a queen-size bed, a crystal chandelier, marble lamps, fur rugs, and antique nightstands. If that’s not luxury enough for you, the terrace features a fireplace surrounded by lounge furniture and an outdoor dining space for eight people. Since the tent is on a floor with a private suite, guests also can use the actual hotel room, which has its own king-size bed, a walk-in closet, marble bathroom and more.
The glamping experience is only available until December and the rates start at $3500. If you want to take things to the next level of opulence, guests can also get a “glamping tasting menu” created by the hotel’s executive chef. They will sample things like “special reserve” ossetra caviar and Japanese Mishima ultra wagyu beef, and even eat a campfire s’more made with 24 karat gold leaf, Tahitian vanilla bean marshmallow, and a smoked 55% Valrhona chocolate bar paired with a vintage Champagne flight.
