Earl ''The Pearl'' Watson: Doorman To The Stars - Hollywood Knickerbocker Hotel, 1945-1962

Too low to display

I don’t think there is any property in Los Angeles, perhaps the world, that has seen as much glamour and as much tragedy as the former Knickerbocker Hotel in Hollywood. Today, the Renaissance Revival/Beau Arts-style structure, which was once dubbed “The Hotel to the Stars,” serves as a retirement home. And oh, if those walls could talk!

The Knickerbocker Hotel in Hollywood...in it's hey day and now. It was "the place" in it's hey day. Anyone who was anyone stayed there or enjoyed it's bars and dining. It is now a senior home. What a shame it could not be restored to it's former glory. But at least it survives and was not torn down like many historic places in Hollywood.
