Normally we don’t stay in hotels, but we are at a convention in Los Angeles, California that is at the Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles, so that’s where we are staying.
“The home of Hollywood glamour, the historic Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles has been the choice of celebrities, presidents, and dignitaries, and the backdrop for many movies and TV shows. Designated as a historic-cultural landmark, the interior of this beloved 1923 hotel features frescos and murals, carved marble fountains and columns, crystal chandeliers, and embroidered tapestries.”
The description from their website does not do justice to this building; you have to experience it to really appreciate it. But perhaps the photographs we took will give you a small taste of this classic hotel.
