What is This at The Beverly Hills Hotel?
This machine looks vaguely familiar, doesn't it? We feel like we may have used one of these before but a long, long time ago in another lifetime. Can you help us determine what it is?
Heh, we spied this real-life pay phone at the Beverly Hills Hotel the other week, something we haven't seen inside a hotel (or anywhere else really) in what seems like forever but has probably only been about five years or so. Also, phone calls are now 50 cents?
It's kind of sad but hotel pay phones will probably go the way of record players, mail boxes, and VHS tapes--nifty little contraptions for the younger generation to photograph and say, "OMG, can you imagine calling someone up on this?"
Well, this pay phone would certainly come in handy if you're cellphone died and you just happen to spot Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes over at Bar Nineteen 12.
