Hollywood Diner from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Jul 24th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another day, another diner from a Meg Ryan movie!  Unlike the Port Café, the Wilmington, California eatery that portrayed East Coast establishments in both When Harry Met Sally . . . and A Few Good Men, today’s locale can actually be found close to the Atlantic – though its name would have you believe otherwise.  I’m talking about the Hollywood Diner in downtown Baltimore, which played the Capital Diner in the 1993 romcom Sleepless in Seattle.  To discuss the restaurant’s history, though, we have to […]



Baltimore’s Washington Monument from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Feb 27th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Most people know about the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., but what few realize is that there is another memorial honoring America’s first president located nearby and that it actually predates the District one.  It is a filming location, to boot – from Sleepless in Seattle, one of my favorite movies, no less!  So I just had to do some stalking of it while I was back east last September.

The original Washington Monument, which was constructed from 1815 to 1829 and was the first public […]



The Women’s Exchange from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Feb 17th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last year, I had incredible luck getting access to filming locations typically closed to the public.  While visiting New York in April, I was granted tours of three non-accessible places that I literally would have given my eye teeth to see.  Thankfully, none of my friendly tour guides collected on that offer.  (And yes, I will be blogging about those sites soon.)  One spot I was not as fortunate with was the tea room at the Women’s Exchange in Baltimore, which was featured briefly in […]



Annie’s House from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Nov 21st, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

We all have those movies – the ones that affected us so much upon first viewing, they left a lasting imprint on our hearts.  Sleepless in Seattle is one such movie for me.  As I mentioned in this 2010 post about the houseboat from the 1993 romcom, I still remember exactly where I was the first time I saw it and have my ticket stub tucked away in a box.  The film had an immediate visceral effect on me – and still does to this […]



The Athenian Inn from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Aug 16th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location at the very top of my Must-Stalk-While-in-the-Pacific-Northwest list was the Athenian Inn Seafood Restaurant and Bar, which made a brief, but quite memorable appearance in the 1993 romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle.  I had been absolutely dying to stalk the restaurant for what seemed like years for a couple of reasons.  One, because as I’ve mentioned before, Sleepless has long been one of my very favorite movies.  And two, because fellow stalker Kerry had previously visited the place and told me that there […]



Jessica’s House from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Aug 10th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of the locations that I was most excited about stalking while visiting Seattle this past May was the home where Jonah Baldwin’s (aka Ross Malinger’s) best friend Jessica (aka Gaby Hoffman) lived in fave movie Sleepless in Seattle.  Fellow stalker David, who I had the pleasure of meeting and doing some stalking with during my brief three-day vacation, managed to track down Jessica’s house just about a week before I headed up to the Pacific Northwest.  He found the locale after posting an inquiry […]



The “Sleepless in Seattle” Houseboat

Apr 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Seattle area location that my good friend and fellow stalker Kerry stalked for me a few weeks back was the houseboat where Sam Baldwin (aka Tom Hanks) and his son Jonah (aka Ross Malinger) lived in one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time, 1993’s Sleepless in Seattle.   I just re-watched Sleepless last night, actually, in order to write today’s post and was absolutely amazed at how incredibly fabulous the movie still is, almost two decades after it was first released!   It’s a […]
