Designated the “Host of the Coast” upon opening in October 1923 and attended by dignitaries and celebrities, the hotel was the largest west of Chicago. In 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences was founded at a banquet in the Crystal Ballroom. Thereafter, eight Academy Awards took place in the Biltmore Bowl in nonconsecutive years during the 30s and 40s, and the 50th Anniversary Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Gala was held in the Crystal Room in 1977.
With more than 70,000 square feet of function space and up to 16,800 square feet of divisible production offices for rent, the Biltmore Los Angeles is strongly associated with the Hollywood and pop culture scene, past and present. With its iconic architecture, the hotel has served as a backdrop for numerous Hollywood blockbusters, such as Wedding Crashers, The Dark Knight, Iron Man and Ghostbusters; popular television series including Grey’s Anatomy, Shameless, Mad Men, Newsroom, Scandal, NCIS-LA and Glee, among many others; and music videos such as Taylor Swift’s “Delicate,” Jennifer Lopez’s “El Anillo,” and an Ed Sheeran video featuring “Thinking Out Loud.”
