4. Timberline Lodge
Built in the distant 30-ies of the last century, the hotel at a ski resort in Oregon does not get tired to host crowds of tourists. And all because his facade was used in the film by Stanley Kubrick “the Shining”. They say the owner of Timberline Lodge convinced the Director to change the room number from 217 (as it was in the book by Stephen king) to non-existent in the hotel room 237. The businessman was worried that guests would not want to live in “terrible” the room after the film, and hardly anyone from reading the novel will accuse him of being a superstitious. But it was the opposite, so far from wishing to stay in room 217 no end.
5. The Plaza Hotel
Perhaps the most recognizable hotel in the world. This five-star hotel, one of the oldest in new York has a rich history. In her garden events unfolded in one of the episodes “the Great Gatsby” by Francis Scott Fitzgerald and in the book series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” by Rick Riordan “Plaza” appears as the headquarters of the demigods.
