Hotel Bel Air
(Yes, I think of Will Smith and start singing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song, too.)
I was covering an event at the hotel, an after party for a screening of We Need to Talk About Kevin - a movie you should all see if you have a chance. It’s crazy disturbing, but so good. I took the assignment mostly because Ryan Gosling was hosting the event, then as is common in LA, scheduling conflicts ruled and Gosling didn’t show. Le sigh.
But I still got to see the swankiest bathroom I’ve ever been in. It wasn’t even a bathroom - it was a boudoir. Pretty metal flowers covered the wall, each sink had its own mirror and there was a vanity table in the middle.
Too bad one of the stalls was missing a toilet paper holder. C’est la vie.
The last picture is the hallway to the bathroom. Not too shabby.
