Sunset Tower Hotel
8358 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood
Reeves writes that the striking Deco tower has been in movies since 1944, when it was featured in "Murder, My Sweet," a Philip Marlowe film. "On its patio, studio exec Tim Robbins gets a message to meet Joe Gillis [the name of William Holden's screenwriter character in 'Sunset Boulevard']) in Robert Altman's Hollywood satire 'The Player,' " Reeves continues. "And on its roof, Mark Wahlberg's crew plans revenge in the 2003 remake of 'The Italian Job.' "
