Be a Star when You Stay in One of These Hotels from the Movies ...

By Deeceebee

There are some fabulous hotels in the movies. It is probably reasonable to assume that one thing we all have in common, is that we have all, at one time or another, dreamt of being a rich and famous movie star, or even better, one of the amazing characters that they get to play! There’s nothing wrong with a bit of escapism now and then, but what if you could actually bring some of that daydreaming into the real world? You can feel like a star for a few nights in one of these hotels from the movies you can stay in!

1 Beverly Wilshire Hotel – LA, USA

There are plenty of hotels to pick from in Los Angeles, but they don’t get much more iconic in film terms than the very place that was used to film Julia Roberts’ legendary scenes in Pretty Woman!

2 Headland Hotel – Cornwall, UK

Any Roald Dahl or Anjelica Huston fans should flock to this amazing seaside hotel in England, because it provided the backdrop for one of the best children’s movies of the 90s, none other than The Witches!

8 Taj Lake Palace Hotel - Udaipur, India

This award-winning hotel on Lake Pichola is fondly remembered as the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. The actual building dates back to 1746 and is in reality far more luxurious than depicted in the movie.

9 Waldorf Astoria – New York, USA

You are more likely to find J-Lo staying in the grand art deco hotel than being a domestic as she was in Maid in Manhattan. A favourite among film producers, it also featured in The Royal Tenenbaums, Analyze This, and Catch Me if You Can.
