Hotel Bijou

111 Mason St., at Eddy St., San Francisco, California, 94102, USA

Dedicated to the city's cinematic history, this hotel's tasteful lobby is filled with black-and-white photographs of local movie houses and reproductions of Tamara De Lempicka's art-deco paintings, while smallish but cheerful rooms are decorated with black-and-white movie stills and basic amenities. Each night the red-velvet curtains of the hotel's twelve-seat 1930s "movie palace," Le Petit Théâtre Bijou, open for guests-only shows, complimentary screenings of films shot on location in San Francisco; classic noirs such as The Maltese Falcon have been on the bill. The convenience of this downtown location is offset by the proximity to the Tenderloin.
