You are booking a room
If you had to choose a room at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, which would it be, 2011 or 1977?
In my current mood, I prefer the 'candlelit, subtly perfumed with incense, exotic, romantic...' suite from 1977.
The Beverly Wilshire was owned by a group of private investors, headed up by bon vivant Hernando Courtright from 1961-1985. It was then sold for $125 million to its current owner Regent International Hotels. The hotel is managed by the Four Seasons.
