Triada Palm Springs

Sep 18th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

For those who are unfamiliar with the area, Palm Springs is HOT in the summer.  Well, it’s hot year-round, but in the summer it’s hot hot – like 115 most days.  One nice consequence of that fact is that hotels drop their prices during the inclement months.  My family loves to partake of the low rates with short staycations in various area hotels.  Last week, we had the pleasure of checking into Triada Palm Springs.  Though not a filming location, the place does have quite […]



Hotel Shangri-La from “The Bachelor”

Aug 7th, 2013 | By | Category: TV Locations

This past Sunday morning (which was particularly cloudy, as you can see above), the Grim Cheaper and I headed out to Santa Monica to run a couple of errands and while there we happened to walk by the Hotel Shangri-La – a historic Art Deco masterpiece that I have wanted to stalk ever since early 2010 when it was featured in an episode of fave reality series The Bachelor. So the two of us decided to pop in to take some quick pictures – and […]



The Ojai Valley Inn & Spa from “The Bachelorette”

Jun 7th, 2013 | By | Category: TV Locations

I know I said yesterday that today’s post would be about a Behind the Candelabra location, but I wound up getting a bit distracted by a spot that I stalked well over two years ago – the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa which appeared on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette. So y’all will have to wait until Monday for more Liberace-related locales. In the meantime . . . in April 2011, the Grim Cheaper and I embarked upon a little stalking road […]



The Colony Palms Hotel

May 23rd, 2013 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

Upon first moving to the Desert back in January, the Grim Cheaper’s boss, who also resides in the Coachella Valley, told me about a small Palm Springs-area inn named the Colony Palms Hotel that she thought I might be interested in stalking due to its vast Hollywood history.  For whatever reason, though, I completely forgot about the place until the GC and I happened to drive by it a couple of weeks ago.  So, since we were right there and since it was almost 5 […]



The Parker Palm Springs Hotel

Apr 16th, 2013 | By | Category: This and That

This past Sunday afternoon, in the hopes of spotting some of the countless celebrities in town for the Coachella music festival, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to a few of the desert’s more upscale hotels.  And while we did not end up seeing any stars during our venture, we did discover one of the coolest places I have visited in all my years of stalking – the Parker Palm Springs hotel.  Although I wouldn’t really consider the place a filming location – it was […]



The Historic Mayfair Hotel from “The Office”

Apr 5th, 2012 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Fellow stalker John Bengtson, from the SIlent Locations blog, sent me an email last week after reading my post on Red Studios Hollywood from The Artist (a location that I had learned about from his website) informing me that he had tracked down some locales from Season 7’s “The Search” episode of The Office that I might be interested in stalking, most notably The Historic Mayfair Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles where Michael Scott (Steve Carell) and Holly Flax (Amy Ryan) shared a rooftop kiss.  […]



The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey from “90210”

Mar 29th, 2012 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Way back in July of last year, the Grim Cheaper and I found ourselves on the West Side of Los Angeles with a few hours to kill, so we decided to head down to Marina del Rey as I had never before done any stalking there.  I ended up absolutely falling in love with the seaside community, especially its downtown shopping area where I know I could have done some serious damage to my credit cards had the GC not been with me.  Anyway, one […]



The Redbury Hotel from “Entourage”

Feb 16th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

Last July, while doing some cyber-stalking, I came across an article on the USA TODAY Travel website about the numerous Southern California hotels and restaurants featured in the eighth and final season of the hit television series Entourage.  One of the spots mentioned in the blurb was Tinseltown’s newly-opened The Redbury Hotel, which appeared in the episode titled “The Big Bang”, and, thanks to its dark crimson walls, unique architecture and old Hollywood vibe, I immediately became enamored of the place.  I, of course, added […]



The Cliffhouse Restaurant from “City of Industry”

Aug 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For our first wedding anniversary this past weekend, the Grim Cheaper and I headed out to the desert to spend a few days at the La Quinta Resort & Club, a historic hotel and popular celebrity hangout which I blogged about extensively last December.  The GC’s brother, who works for the Hilton Hotels chain, which owns the resort, hooked us up royally with a Friends-and-Family discount so we were able to book a suite at an amazingly low rate – a suite that turned out […]



Edith Palmer’s Country Inn

Aug 16th, 2011 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

The final Nevada-area location that I stalked while visiting my grandmother in Reno last month was Edith Palmer’s Country Inn in Virginia City – the spot where my girl, Miss Marilyn Monroe, stayed for a short time while filming her last completed movie, 1961’s The Misfits.  I had actually stalked the exterior of the historic property once before, while vacationing at my grandmother’s back in June of 2008, and had also written a short blog post about it.  As fate would have it, the inn’s […]
