Sofitel LA: Ned Beatty Lives, Guests Treated Like Royalty
Want more on the new swankified Sofitel LA? From our hotel tip mailbox:
I stayed at the Sofitel in LA last week, went to the Stone Rose every night. Best line of the night was when we saw Ned Beatty and I said, I thought you were dead. He didn't find that too funny.
What? Ok, we admit it, we headed to Wikipedia to figure out who the hell Ned Beatty was, er, is--Dan Conner's father on Roseanne that kind of rings a bell--but this dude possesses the type of career resume William H. Macy dreams of having someday. Even his bit parts have bit parts.
While Stone Rose is enabling LA drunks to prematurely dance on Ed Conner's not yet dug grave, the new Sofitel guest rooms appear to be pleasing folks:
Our room was large and beautiful. Everything appeared new from the large flat screen television to the bedding. There is nothing in this hotel that I could complain about. We were treated like royalty.
