Here’s what I need to say first. I have seen Pretty Woman over 100 times. In fact, I have seen it so many times that I blame it for all the things wrong in my life when it comes to men. Pretty Woman set a whole generation of women up to believe that Prince Charming was just around the corner, or your next client as a working prostitute, as the case may be. Nevertheless, I continue to watch it and dream of my millionaire knight pulling up in his white limousine. Hey, it could happen. Let’s be honest- it won’t.
But, what can happen now is the actual experience of feeling like you ARE Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.
Remember the hotel suite that Julia Roberts and Richard Gere shared in the movie? It was at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. Well, the hotel has decided to celebrate its cinematic history but offering a Pretty Woman package. And it goes a little something like this:
You’re the star of your own love story when you recreate your favourite moments from Pretty Woman at Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel), where the hit movie was filmed. During this glamorous weekend getaway for two, steal the scene when you stay in the “Pretty Woman” Suite (aka the luxurious Presidential Suite). The experience starts with a personal shopping consultation on Rodeo Drive. Dressed to impress, take a Rolls-Royce to Greystone Mansion for a romantic “shoeless” picnic, where you’ll sample cuisine inspired by the picnic scene from the movie. You’ll embark on the ultimate date night when the two of you are privately styled in your suite, before spending the evening at the new Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts or the LA Opera. Throughout your stay, we’ll inspire you with stills from the movie, allowing you and your sweetheart to mimic classic scenes for exclusive photography opportunities. The fairy-tale ending? We’ll leave that up to you.
So, will you be booking into this fantasy getaway? Sadly, it doesn’t appear as if Richard Gere is included in the package.
