You might do a double-take today when you see a royal guard in a furry black hat standing stoically outside of the Beverly Wilshire. It looks like the guy got lost on his way to Buckingham Palace.

Of course, it's just the latest case of royal wedding fever among hotels. If you weren't among the sleepy Kate and Wills fans to wake up in the middle of the night to watch the wedding, you can still get into the festivities at the hotel.

In addition to adding its own royal guard, the Beverly Wilshire is going all British with two Union Jack Mini Coopers parked outside, royal red roses all over the lobby, and all of the lobby staff sporting mini Union Jack pins on their lapels.

You can see the British-inspired spectacle through today. If you want the royal treatment, you can duck into the hotel's restaurant The BLVD through Saturday. There, you'll nosh on pan-seared dover sole and cauliflower purée, romanesco florets, champagne sauce. And for dessert, obviously you can get a slice of the royal wedding cake with mixed fruit and white fondant. The only thing that's missing is the newlyweds.
