Los Angeles and "Mad Men"
As we've noted in the past, the location managers on "Mad Men" manage to find unique ways to turn Los Angeles into New York -- or, in this case, Rome. You may have noticed in a recent episode of the show that the "Rome Hilton" looked somewhat familiar.
That's because the show shot those scenes in the lobby of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Opened in 1964 (perfect for that "Mad Men"-era look), the lobby's gold-hued pillars and mirrored walls must have given that Europe-in-the-60s vibe for producers.
