18 Movies Starring HotelsFeb 14, 2014
Hotels featured in movies are often characters in their own right—whether they are warm and welcoming or creepy and inhospitable. Regardless, they make quite valuable properties onscreen, and without them many movies wouldn't even exist. Some hotels are outright evil (think: The Shining and Psycho), others are riotously and charmingly incompetent (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and the Marx Brothers' Room Service) or simultaneously jumping points for adventures and safe havens (Holiday Inn) or flighty and mysterious (Grand Hotel). But whatever its personality, a hotel is, by its very nature, alluring, and surely that is at least a small part of what makes hotels compelling investment properties.
