Fontainebleau Makes List of Top Movie Hotels
Trip Advisor put together a list of the ten biggest hotel movie stars in history, and our own Fontainebleau made the list. Memorably a main backdrop in Goldfinger, the historic hotel also has credits for parts in The Bodyguard, The Bellboy, Scarface, Sinatra flick A Hole in the Head, and last, but not least Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach.
The Fairmont San Francisco took top honors, but we really felt that The Plaza in New York got robbed. Who could forget it's memorable work in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. It really should've won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress that year but was memorably beaten by Marisa Tomei.
Anyway, if you're feeling nostalgic for Fontainebleau's move past, here's an excellent Flickr gallery of screencaps from movies featuring the hotel.
