In 1927 the luxurious Beverly Wilshire Hotel opened on a former bean field turned motor racetrack (the Beverly Hills Motor Speedway was considered the western rival to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway). Former guests include Emperor Hirohito, Elvis Presley, Warren Beatty, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The Beverly Wilshire was used for the exterior and lobby shots in the movie Pretty Woman.
