2. Hampton Inn Nanuet
We loved this cameo by a Hampton Inn in Young Adult. Mavis Gary (played by Charlize Theron) checks into this Rockland County, NY hotel with her dog Dolce, whom she tries to conceal in her handbag—even after the Front Desk clerk tells her small pets are allowed (which they are at Hampton). The hotel was so psyched, they even posted the movie trailer on their Facebook wall!
3. Le Meurice
In Midnight In Paris, director Woody Allen makes use of a penthouse suite at Le Meurice, which is also a favorite of celebs like Eminem, Angelina Jolie, and Jay-Z & Beyonce (who knows? maybe Blue Ivy Carter owes more to the hotel's Belle Etoile Royal Suite than she thinks...).
Indeed, many viewers wondered the same thing after seeing George Clooney traipse along that perfect stretch of unspoiled beach in The Descendants: where the hell is that? Well, the film crew picked a little spot on the southeastern coast of Kauai known as Kipu Ranch (apparently ideal for ATV jaunts); and while that particular spot doesn't have any hotels, we leaned that the entire crew got to stay at the nearby St. Regis Princeville Resort, only a one hour drive from Kipu.
The team who worked on Iron Man 2 (starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Downey Jr., and Mickey Rourke) got to visit this Monte Carlo beauty when filming scenes that took place during the Formula 1 race. Facing the city's Plaza del Casino (above), the hotel offers mind-bogglingly
beautiful expensive suites (they even hosted guests during Prince Albert's wedding) and a Michelin restaurant called Le Grill.
