Twenty-five years ago, America fell in love with prostitute Vivian Ward in the hit movie “Pretty Woman.” Now you can live like Vivian for a day at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, where the movie is set, if you can afford the $100,000 price tag.
The pricey weekend getaway for two features some of the highlights from the movie, which stars Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. The “Pretty Woman” weekend includes a $2,000 shopping spree on Rodeo Drive, a romantic picnic and music serenade and a night in the Presidential Suite, The New York Daily News reports.
The evening will conclude with a dinner and a show at the L.A. Opera or the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.
If $100,000 is a little steep, there’s also a deluxe package for $15,000, which includes a Beverly Suite, a two-hour shopping trip with a personal shopper, an hourlong couple’s massage and a two-hour picnic, the Daily News said.
A third package, called the premier, is also offered. It includes a Veranda Suite, $1,000 shopping trip, three-hour picnic with music and 90-minute couple’s massage.
“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,” reads the Beverly Wilshire package description.
I loved “Pretty Woman,” but paying to live like a prostitute for a day, albeit a spoiled prostitute at a ritzy hotel, isn’t very appealing to me. I think I’d rather celebrate the movie’s 25th anniversary by sitting down and watching it with a bowl of popcorn instead. But that’s just me.
