A Swim On A 1920’s Luxury Ocean Liner…

A Swim On A 1920's Luxury Ocean Liner...

Wouldn’t you love to do a photo shoot here! This pool was a topic of conversation the other day so I thought I would follow up with a post about it. This is a photograph I shot of The Health Club Pool at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.

Modeled after the decks of 1920’s luxury ocean liners. Solid brass trim on windows, doors and railings, teakwood deck chairs and hand-laid Italian mosaic tile on the walls and in the pool are original.The Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel had it’s grand opening in 1923 and was the largest hotel West of Chicago. It was the early home of the Academy Awards and the place of the 1960 Democratic Convention acceptance speech of John F. Kennedy.

    HOLY COW! We’ve stayed at that hotel any number of times and never even knew there was a pool, let alone this gorgeous thing. Thanks for once again making my world bigger!
