Each year, the Oscars celebrate the cinema industry by rewarding some of the best movies and film artists of the past year. Among the best actor, the best picture and the best film, at My Boutique Hotel we believe that there's definitely a missing category... Indeed, we think that the Boutique Hotels where a movie has been filmed should also get rewarding! So in respect of the cinema industry, let's honor together the best boutique hotels in films!
The Château Marmont in Los Angeles
Somewhere, a movie realized by Sofia Coppola, follows a down-and-out actor who is living at the quite famous, Chateau Marmont. Asked to watch his young daughter, a large part of the movie takes place inside the hotel.
