Top 5 Movie Hotels
Do you fancy staying in one of the top 5 Movie Hotels in the world?
Here are five of the top most iconic movie hotels:
1 – Lake Palace, Udaipur
From: James Bond – Octopussy, 1983
The Lake Palace is one of the most visually stunning hotels on earth. Seemingly floating on the glassy waters of Lake Pichola, the hotel was originally built in 1746 as a Summer residence for the local Maharanas.
You may remember the Palace as the home of the mysterious Octopussy in the film where Roger Moore as James Bond infiltrates the floating palace disguised as a crocodile.
Nowadays the hotel is operated by the luxury Taj hotel group and offers guests unbridled service in luxurious comfort. As soon as you arrive by private launch, you are greeted by attentive staff and treated like royalty for the remainder of your stay.
2 – The Plaza, New York

The world famous Plaza hotel is a New York landmark and one of the best known buildings in the city that has been welcoming heads of state and celebrities since its opening in 1907.
The hotel has been the location for numerous movies, such as ‘Home Alone 2 – lost in New York’, Alfred Hitchcocks ‘North by Northwest’ and the classic comedy starring Richard Pryor ‘Brewsters Millions’
You too can enjoy the luxurious rooms and suites and the exceptional service offered up at this five star hotel that overlooks Central Park, with nightly rates starting at £375 per double room.
3 – Bellagio, Las Vegas
Movie: Ocean’s Eleven, 2001
The Bellagio was the most luxurious hotel on the strip but still oozes luxury and style mixed with the obligatory Vegas bling.
Vegas is a firm favourite with the big movie studios and pretty much every hotel on the strip features in a movie of one kind or another.
We have chosen the Bellagio as its such an iconic Vegas hotel and was the main location for the huge Hollywood franchise Ocean’s Eleven, with Brad Pitt and George Clooney.
You can stay in movie star luxury at the Bellagio in a room overlooking the strip and the famous dancing fountains below for as little as £59 per person per night.

This is one of the grand historic hotels of America, built in renaissance style and located in one of the most exclusive parts of the World, steps away from Rodeo drive in Beverly Hills.

You may remember this hotel from the film ‘Pretty Woman’ where down on her luck hooker Vivian Ward, played by Julia Roberts spends a week as an escort to Richard Gere’s character Edward Lewis and stays in his penthouse suite at the hotel.
The hotel is currently run by Four Seasons, one of the Worlds best luxury hotel operators, who deliver extremely high levels of service in elegant and luxurious surroundings.
Rooms start at £390 per night but if you want Richard Gere’s penthouse suite that will set you back around $25,000 a night, although you do get the largest suite in the whole of LA.
