NEW YORK - Here's a bit of pop culture that's bound to make many people feel old - the hit movie Pretty Woman is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
The romantic comedy about a relationship between a wealthy businessman and a call girl was Julia Roberts' breakout role and the movie itself became a cultural phenomenon, putting shopping on Rodeo Drive and the luxurious Beverly Wilshire hotel on full display, allowing the rest of us to drool and daydream.
For die-hard fans of the blockbuster hit, or those who simply enjoy luxurious living, the hotel has developed various movie related experiences to commemorate this silver anniversary.
If you don't have the deep pockets Richard Gere's character did in the movie, there is the budget option of popping into the hotel's bar, THE Blvd., and ordering its Pretty Woman cocktail. After savoring your drink, take a selfie with the replica on display of the stunning red gown Julia Roberts wore so famously in the movie.
For those seeking an experience that more closely resembles the posh glamour featured in the movie, the hotel is offering daylong spa experiences tied to the Pretty Woman theme, as well as entire shopping oriented stays.
The Pretty Woman for a Day packages are available for various price ranges - the most expensive of which includes staying in the Pretty Woman suite (also known as the Presidential Suite), a personal shopping consultation and chauffeured Rolls-Royce transportation to Greystone Mansion for a romantic picnic.
