2) Hotel Vertigo, San Francisco

This hotel gained fame after Alfred Hitchcock filmed his 1958 suspense film of the same name there. Hitchcock used the exterior of the then Empire Hotel as character Judy Barton’s home. To add to the tourism attraction, the hotel lobby and rooms are decorated to resemble the tangerine-orange and white 60’s style of the film’s poster. The film itself is on continuous loop in the lobby 24/7. The 102-room boutique hotel, located in the Nob Hill district of the city, pays homage to the film that Hitchcock fans will certainly recognize. The guestrooms all contain mirrored wall art which gives a big nod to the dizzying signature swirl from the film. If that isn’t enough to make your head spin, the hotel is located among the steep hilled streets. The good news is, it’s walking distance to Union Square where you’ll find plenty of shops, museums and great eats!
