Did You Know?


Filmed in July and August, the weather in Los Angeles was in the high 90's. The exterior of the New York Hotel was filmed on the North side entrance of the Bonaventure Hotel. The hotel's exterior sidewalk and building edge was banked with real snow fabricated by a Hollywood Ice company. The Bonaventure lobby area is divided into four quarters in plan. Only one quarter of the main lobby with the desk check in counter was decorated with a Christmas theme. Shop owners, not knowing a film was being shot in the hotel, questioned the decorator's swing gang crew about Christmas in August? The "gang" replied, answering "our company is trying to get the hotel Christmas holiday contract for this year. Please be sure to tell the hotel management to hire our company". The hotel penthouse suite and corridors were also filmed for the New York hotel interiors. See more »
