Fodor's Review

Scenes in Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller Vertigo were shot in this ornate hotel (it was a speakeasy during Prohibition), and designer Thomas Schoos has reworked the hotel's interiors to pay tribute to the film. Schoos infused the guest rooms with a reckless whimsy—consider the tangerine highlights and the horse-head lamps, not to mention the classic Vertigo swirl logo along the walls. Although the hotel's block includes several apartment buildings,

a fancy salon, and cafés, the neighborhood can be dicey, so exercise caution when walking here at night.
