5. Some like It Hot

Like for so many, this is one of my very favorite movies ever, and I’d be very happy to pay homage to it. Despite being set in Florida, Some Like It Hot was filmed extensively at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego. Opened in 1888, the Victorian hotel remains a favored destination, with Marilyn’s fans preferring to eschew the fancy new wing to stay in the original section of the hotel complete with antique elevator and uniformed attendant.
