Top Luxury Hotels Featured in Movies
Wouldn’t it be nice if life were like our favorite movies? Romance as passionate as in The Notebook, a daily routine as smooth as James Bond’s or super human powers like the cast of X Men ?! Life can be similar to what you see on the big screen if you choose to stay at one of these trendy hotels.
journeyPod has found the top hotels that have been featured in movies for our movie buffs out there. Let’s check out a few that you can check-in to today.
The Park Hyatt Tokyo
We featured the Park Hyatt as one of the top 5 hotels in Tokyo and it’s obvious that Sofia Coppola thought highly of it too. Her film Lost in Translation, starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, is set in this luxurious hotel where the main characters look to discover their true selves.
The Bellagio Resort, Las Vegas
The Bellagio has seen some of the most on-screen time of any hotel. Aside from all of the Ocean’s films, starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt, you can find the Bellagio in numerous places. Check out Dodgeball, Head of State, and Knocked Up to see this great hotel.
Grand Hotel Pupp, Czech Republic
This hotel was the fictional Hotel Splendide in the Bond film Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig. In reality, the Pupp is in the Czech Republic in one of Europe’s leading spa towns. Grand Hotel Pupp is the premier getaway for stress relief near Prague.
Hotels de Chevaliers, France
In the prequel to Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited, Natalie Portman and Jason Schwartzman star in Hotel Chevalier. This short film reveals a long-term (and steamy!) relationship between the characters and it sets the groundwork for Anderson’s latest feature. From the beginning, the hotel can easily be seen as one of the luxurious locations in France.
Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills
This Beverly Hills Four Seasons is the location for most of Pretty Woman. Julia Roberts enjoyed all that it had to offer and throughout the film and it has become an icon in this Hollywood city. Roberts, alongside Richard Gere, show the audience why the Beverly Wilshire is the place to stay.
The Fairmont San Francisco
San Francisco’s iconic hotel since 1907, the Fairmont is considered the White House of the west coast because nearly every president has stayed there. The Rock, starring Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage, features this hotel as Connery’s place to stay throughout the film. His $12,000 a night, 6,000 square-foot suite even features a grand piano.
