Hotels are sometimes the epicenter of locations when it comes to filming movies and production series. Here's a compiling list of hotels and destinations that offer guests a chance to explore the location that were once filming location.
Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa (San Anton, Malta)
The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa is located close to San Anton Palace and Gardens, the official residence of the President of Malta and the filming location for many scenes during HBO's Game of Thrones, where it doubles as part of the Red Keep exterior. The hotel is also a prime location to explore Game of Thrones filming sites because it is situated between Valletta, the capital city of Malta, and historic Mdina, the Medieval city—both of which were used as filming locations. For guests booking suites or executive rooms, they will have access to the newly launched executive lounge offering enhanced and personalized services, including private breakfasts, meeting room space, complimentary snacks and a private terrace overlooking San Anton Gardens used in Game of Thrones.
Hotel Fairmont Empress (Victoria, Canada)
Fairmont Empress is located in Victoria, British Columbia, overlooking the city’s Inner Harbour. The property offers 464 appointed guest rooms and suites and is also one of the filming locations for Cold Pursuit (2019); a thriller based on the 2014 Norwegian comedy "In Order of Disappearance" ("Kraftidioten") where Liam Neeson plays a snowplow driver whose son dies under mysterious circumstances. The restaurant foyer of the Empresss Hotel is doubled as Kehoe's Chateu Montclair Resort in the film. The restaurant includes Pacific Northwest cuisine and wine list, Q Bar’s regionally focused cocktail culture and Fairmont Gold Lounge.
Half Moon Resort (Montego Bay, Jamaica)
It’s been almost 60 years since the first Bond movie was filmed in Jamaica. In preparation for the forthcoming 007 blockbuster, which is again being shot on Jamaica this year and released in April 2020, fans can travel to the locations frequented by the author and his characters, like the Half Moon Resort where James Bond spent a night with Rosie Carver. Set on a 400 acres with two miles of beachfront, the bedroom in which the scene was filmed in is now known as Cottage 10 (and can be booked!). The resort offers travelers view of the Caribbean Sea, along with an expanded beachfront, a swimming cove, adults-only swimming pool, two restaurants, market café and a vegan café located at the fern tree spa and three bars.
Disney’s Hotel New York (Chessy, France)
Opening summer 2020, Disney's Hotel New York will be opening The Art of Marvel, an accolade to Marvel Super Heroes in the style of a New York art gallery. Rebranding by Walt Disney Imagineering, the hotel will comprise art and designs of super heroes including Iron Man, Spider-Man and other members of The Avengers, among others. The hotel will showcase the Marvel universe with posters, concept art from films, comic book covers, production design, original sketches, media, and more. Currently under renovation, its interior design will be in the style of Tony Stark and the Avengers Headquarters. The hotel will have 476 standard rooms, 65 executive rooms and eight standard suites. The room interiors will include decor resembling the Iron Man suit (think a red and gold color scheme).
