Hotels on screen


Reforming prostitutes, stabbing people in the shower, tricycling after twin ghosts—ah, hotels in the movies are a wonderful thing. And now, here are the top 10 hotel movies scenes (according to a TravelLodge poll):

1. Pretty Woman – Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in a bubble bath

2. Psycho – The Shower Scene

3. The Shining - Danny Torrance (Danny Lloyd) facing the image of dead twins

4. Beverly Hills Cop - Eddie Murphy’s reception desk rant

5. Indecent Proposal - Woody Harrelson and Demi Moore have sex on $1,000,000

6. Thelma and Louise – Brad Pitt and Gena Davis love scene before he steals her cash

7. Ghostbusters - the team trash a hotel dining room chasing ghost

8. Godfather – Al Pacino hears about father’s shooting while having dinner with Diane Keaton

9. Trainspotting – Ewan McGregor leaves hotel room with the drug money

10. Pulp Fiction – Maria de Medeiros tells Bruce Willis she wants a ‘pot belly’

But what are the great hotel conference scenes, that's what I want to know. I nominate George Clooney's keynote at the Divorce Attorney Association conference in Intolerable Cruelty, which didn't get much traction at the box office, but I thought was pretty funny.
