Going on a journey, we certainly want a carriage of new emotions, a bag of dizzying impressions and a pinch of fairy magic. All of this can be gradually obtained if you live not in a banal room of an ordinary hotel, but in a hotel where a popular film was made, where velvet chairs still remember the fifth point of your favorite actors, where the atmosphere at the same time seems familiar and mysterious.
Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, San Francisco
The largest number of hotels whose mansions were captured with a film are located in the United States. In the very first hotel of the Fairmont Hotels and Resorts in San Francisco, many films were shot. The most famous of them are the thriller Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, the action movie The Rock with Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage, and the cute junior comedy with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Fairmont San Francisco hotel is ideal for a “disco-style city,” as it is from its windows that offer a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and Angel Island.
Caesars Palace and Bellagio, Las Vegas
One of the most film-loving cities in the United States is Las Vegas. Caesars Palace and Bellagio are the most iconic hotels of the city of sins, whose walls became decorations for films such as Once Upon a Time in Vegas, Bachelor Party in Vegas, Godzilla, Ocean's 11, Rain Man, 21, “Iron Man”, “Intolerable Cruelty”, “Rush Hour-2”. Take something stronger with you and go to the roof of the Caesars Palace – this is how all the adventures of the Bachelor Party heroes in Vegas began.
And then you can follow the example of George Clooney in the role of Danny Ocean and enjoy the casino owned by Bellagio.
Hôtel Plaza Athénée, Paris
The favorite city of filmmakers outside the New World, without any doubt, is Paris. The directors do not stop exploiting the French capital to the full – “Midnight in Paris”, “The Da Vinci Code”, “Amelie”, “Paris, I love you”, “Angel-A”, “1 + 1”, “The Devil Wears Prada” etc. In Paris, I want to remember the most feminine series of all times and peoples – “Sex and the City”. The lovely and luxurious Hôtel Plaza Athénée played the role of a love nest for Carrie Bradshaw and the Russian artist Alexander Petrovsky. The views from the Eiffel Suite to the main beauty of the city (the Eiffel Tower) will turn the head of any girl!
Sidi Driss Hotel, Tunisia
Who is not a fan of all these comedy-dramatic melodramas, but a fan of space and fiction, we advise you to go to Tunisia. In the south of the country, in the town of Matmata, there is the Sidi Driss Hotel, in which two Star Wars episodes were filmed – “Star Wars. Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Star Wars. Episode IV: New Hope. The hotel has 5 "holes", 4 of which are equipped with rooms for guests, and that very room of Luke is a restaurant. You will not be able to settle there, but please have lunch.

Grandhotel Pupp, Karlovy Vary
In conclusion, we will reveal a small secret – sometimes the creators of films instill the viewer, giving out some locations as others. So it was with the hotel in one of the series Bond. In the story, the action of the 21st episode of the fictional agent 007 British intelligence takes place in Montenegro, in the exquisite Splendid Hotel. In fact, the film "Casino Royale" was filmed in the chic Grand Hotel Grandhotel Pupp in Czech Karlovy Vary. But you don’t have to remember the tape’s silent producers ’word – we assure you that you’ll never regret that talented artists have embellished a little bit of reality and revealed to us such a luxurious place as Grandhotel Pupp. In addition, during the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the concentration of stars in the hotel exceeds all permissible standards – right in the corridor you can face Catherine Zeta-Jones or Monica Bellucci.
Feeling like a star is very simple – play the main role at the forefront of your life: be as happy as the Jackpot winners in a Las Vegas casino, love as much as the heroic lovers in Paris love, travel so often that everything seems to be the world is Not Enough!
