TRIVIA NOTE: The series was based on Arthur Halley's best-selling novel "Hotel."

The real hotel that served as model for the ABC series (a sort of LOVE BOAT on land) was the Plush Fairmont Hotel at 950 Mason Street (on Nob Hill) in San Francisco, California. The hotel was originally built in 1902 by Herman Oelrichs. It was damaged in the earthquake of April 18, 1906 and reopened April 18, 1907

Exterior scenes of the Fairmont were used for establishing shots for the series and a large replica of the Hotel's plush lobby was recreated for shooting interior scenes.

Some notable Fairmont moments:

  • The United Nations charter was written there.
  • Rocker Mick Jagger partied in their penthouse
  • Tony Bennett premiered "I Left My Heart in San Francisco''
  • Nine US Presidents beginning with William Howard Taft as well British Prime Minster Tony Blair have stayed at the Fairmont.
