From Lancing to Hollywood!

Sussex Transport are organising an air freight order for The Beverley Wilshire Hotel in Beverley Hills, USA this week.

Since it was built in 1929, The Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel has attracted rich and famous guests from around the world. The hotel is most famous for being used in the 1990 movie Pretty Woman.

Following the filming of the movie, thousands of people who tried to book the same suite that Julia Roberts and Richard Gere shared were left disappointed to learn that the room itself was a ‘set’ at the Walt Disney Studio!

Julia Robert’s character in the film was not the only pretty woman who stayed there. In the 60’s the hotel became a swinging hangout for Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson, with hoards of women going in and out of their rooms. An elderly lady who stayed beneath Beatty constantly banged her ceiling with her broom, to try and get him and his lady friends to stop making so much noise!

Other famous names to have stayed at the hotel include Elvis Presley – who lived there for several years, John Lennon, Elton John, Mick Jagger and Cary Grant to name but a few.

Fancy a night at the Presidential Suite? This will only set you back £4,700 …

Whilst we can assure you of a ‘pretty’ good transport service – we can not guarantee that you will find any of our drivers match up to the rugged good looks of Richard Gere…..However we are sure that the ladies that work for us could give Julia a run for her money!
