Millennium Biltmore Hotel
Millennium Biltmore Hotel Review
The "wow" factor hits you as soon as you walk in the door. Dripping in Italian Renaissance style, the Biltmore's ornate details, frescoes, and golden columns are truly luxe. You might get a crick in your neck from admiring the magnificence of the ceilings alone.
Opened in 1923, a creation of the architecture firm Schultze and Weaver, which also built New York City's Waldorf-Astoria, the Biltmore is a registered historical landmark and has served presidents, royalty, and celebrities alike.
The Academy Awards were held here in the 1930s and '40s, and the hotel has also been seen in many films and TV shows, including Chinatown. These days, the hotel really kicks into high glamour for the holidays with special dinners, a traditional afternoon holiday tea, and New Year's bash.
