Movies Filmed at Former Ambassador Hotel

3400 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010, USA

The Ambassador Hotel was constructed in 1921 by architect Myron Hunt in the Mediterranean Revival style. Over the years the hotel and Cocoanut Grove nightclub inside were very popular spots for celebrities. In 1968 Senator Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in the hotel's main kitchen and marked the beginning of a rapid decline of the hotel. The hotel was closed to guest in 1989, though it remained open for filming and special events. The hotel was finally demolished in 2005 with only a few small portions retained to be integrated into the new Los Angeles High School of the Arts.
