Send a letter! Send a postcard! Beverly Wilshire Hotel via Instagram

Send a letter! Send a postcard! Beverly Wilshire Hotel via Instagram

Send a letter! Send a postcard!

Wandering Rodeo Drive with family a few weeks ago and we HAD to go into the Lobby of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. After all, this was the hotel portrayed in Pretty Woman and countless other films and tv shows.

For me, though, it wasn’t about the fancy shops or exceedingly rich or famous guests. I was more interested in the design and architecture of the hotel, first built in 1928. 

This gleaming mail chute shines brightly in the elevator lobby and I stopped to take a photo despite the odd looks I received from staff and guests. What can I say? I love things that are well-designed in a style that isn’t seen much anymore. I am sure I have countless other photos like this in my photo collection.
