The Beverly Wilshire Hotel is at 9500 Wilshire Boulevard on the east side of South Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California. It was constructed by real estate developer Walter G. McCarty on the site of the former Beverly Hills Speedway. It was completed in 1928 (when the city had fewer than 18,000 residents), and was then known as the "Beverly Wilshire Apartment Hotel". The E-shaped structure is built of a special Tuscan stone and Carrara marble in the Italian Renaissance architecture style.

Renamed the Beverly-Wilshire Hotel by new owners, it was renovated with a ballroom in the 1940s to accommodate the popular big bands of the day. An Olympic-sized swimming pool was built and championship tennis courts were added, with tennis champion Pancho Gonzalez as tennis director.

The hotel changed hands in 1958 and again in 1961, when it was purchased by a group of investors headed by Hernando Courtright.

Acquired by Regent International Hotels in 1985, the 395-room luxury hotel has been managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts since 1992 under license from Regent International Hotels, which is now a subsidiary of Carlson Companies, Inc. of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Beverly Wilshire was one of the filming locations for the 1990 movie "Pretty Woman".

The Beverly Wilshire is a common filming locaiton for HBO's Entourage Television Series. With Cast and Crew filming there at least three or more times per season.

Food Safety

In March of 2002, around 175 people became sick during an outbreak of norovirus at Beverly Wilshire during the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony. Health officials believe that the virus came from food distributors, and was not due to the food handlers at the hotel.
