Do you care?
However, it is a war.
The vast majority of photocalls for movies in LA are done in one hotel.
This high end hotel makes a ton of money renting out the conference rooms, suites and food and beverages for the army that descends multiple times each week for these sessions.
Now though, a different hotel decided it wanted in on the bidding. It’s main claim to fame has been the flagship LA restaurant of this foreign born celebrity chef who spends a ton of time on television.
The hotel is offering 70% discounts compared to the hotel that currently has the monopoly and studios and networks are taking notice.
The thing is though, the actors and actresses prefer the hotel chain that currently has the monopoly and don’t care about costs.
Current hotel: Hotel Bel-Air (Wolfgang Puck)
Challenging hotel: Beverly Wilshire, The Peninsula Beverly Hills
