Somewhere Filmmakers Pick their Favorite Hotel Films

Much of Sofia Coppola's Somewhere is set in the iconic Chateau Marmont. We asked some of the folks involved in the production of Somewhere to pick their favorite hotel movies.

North By Northwest

At The Plaza Hotel in NY. Cary Grant in the Plaza and on the run.

Ocean's Eleven

At the Bellagio in Vegas (the remake of Ocean’s Eleven, not the original). Who doesn't love the fountains at the Bellagio? If only they had let Ted Griffin write the sequels...

The Sting

At the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. A classic movie in a very classy hotel.

Hotel Rwanda

At the Hotel des Mille Collines. Heartbreaking. Inspiring. Google all the reviews and then go watch it again. Hotel as a safe island haven in a sea of blood.

Dirty Dancing

At the Mountain Lake Hotel in Pembroke, Virginia. Nobody puts baby in the corner. Who didn't want to spend the summer at the Mountain Lake Hotel after seeing everyone have the time of their life?
