There’s always travel inspiration to be found in classic Hollywood films. Having played a starring role in some of all time favorite films, these iconic hotels promise a heavy dose of glamour and nostalgia for your next getaway.
The Plaza, New York
Iconic Film(s): Sleepless in Seattle, American Hustle, The Great Gatsby
New York’s famed Plaza Hotel at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South, is perfect for those seeking old-time grandeur. Who could forget the timeless scene in The Great Gatsby when Leonardo DiCaprio (Jay Gatz), and the clan decide to head to the city and take a suite at The Plaza to escape the high summer heat of East Egg. Or the jilted Carrie Bradshaw and her ill-fated nuptials when Mr Big calls off their wedding at The Plaza.
Beverly Wilshire, LA
Most Iconic Film(s): Pretty Woman, Sex & The City
This glamourous landmark just off Rodeo Drive is best remembered as the hotel where Richard Gere and Juia Roberts fall in love in Pretty Woman. To relive scenes from the movie, The Beverly Wilshire offers a “Pretty Woman” For A Day package where guests can stay in the Pretty Woman Suite, sip cocktails at THE Blvd’s onyx bar, indulge in a shoeless picnic and enjoy a personal shopping tour of Rodeo Drive.
Most Iconic Film(s): Midnight in Paris
Step back in time to the Jazz Age at Le Bristol Paris on Rue du Faubourg Saint Honore, to have your own Midnight in Paris moment. From the moment you approach the hotel’s grand white marble and red carpet entrance, you’ll be reminiscing about eras gone by just like Gil Pender (Owen Wilson) in the cult Woody Allen film. Add to the glamour and nostalgia by booking the Panoramic Suite, and host your own rooftop soiree.
Most Iconic Film(s): Lost in Translation
Witnessing the pulsating nightscape on the 52nd floor of The Park Hyatt Tokyo, will instantly take you back to the night Bob and Charlotte (Bill Murray and Scarlett Johanson) first met in the hotel’s iconic New York Bar. Recreate the legendary scene from Sofia Coppola’s Lost In Translation by ordering a Santori Whiskey and sushi as you take in the 360-degree-views panoramic over Mount Fuji and downtown Tokyo.
Most Iconic Film(s): The Bodyguard, Goldfinger
Visit this famed hotel on Miami’s Millionaire’s Row, to live it up like many famous celebrities throughout history: Elvis Presley, Judy Garland, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Jennifer Lopez have also stayed at this Miami Beach hotspot. Reimagine Whitney Houston’s scenes in The Bodyguard at the former TROPIGALA ballroom now LIV, the hotels’ hip nightclub, and live it up like an A-lister at the15th floor Penthouse suite overlooking the ocean.
