There isn't a "Best Performance by a Hotel" category yet, but maybe there should be — the right setting means everything to a film. And since we tend to choose hotels with distinctive personalities, it's no surprise that more than a few Tablet favorites have had significant on-screen roles.

Neri Hotel

TAJ LAKE PALACE
Lake Udaipur, India
If the Taj Lake Palace looks like something out of a Bond film, that's because it is; this floating palace on Lake Udaipur made a memorable appearance in 1983's otherwise rather slight Octopussy.

  Hotel Daniel

Hotel Cipriani & Palazzo Vendramin
Venice, Italy
The 2006 version of Casino Royale, by contrast, is widely viewed as the Bond franchise's return to form. Some of you may even have taken your eyes off of Daniel Craig and Eva Green long enough to catch sight of Venice's Hotel Cipriani & Palazzo Vendramin.

The Carlyle

PARK HYATT TOKYO
Tokyo, Japan
To call it the main character would be a bit of a stretch, but without the Park Hyatt Tokyo, Lost in Translation wouldn't have been the same. Luxurious alienation never looked so good.

  Albergo Villamarta

Le Meridien Turin Art+Tech
Turin, Italy
Among several unforgettable scenes in the original 1969 Italian Job is the famous Mini Cooper race on the Fiat factory's rooftop track. Now, of course, it's part of Le Meridien Turin Art+Tech, and it's open to runners, if not to drivers.

Les Suites Orient

SUNSET TOWER HOTEL
West Hollywood, CA, USA
The 2003 version of The Italian Job features a Tablet hotel as well, the iconic Sunset Tower, a Hollywood institution which was perhaps more memorably featured in Get Shorty and in Robert Altman's satirical masterpiece The Player.

  La Mamounia

Chateau Marmont
Hollywood, CA, USA
Not only has it provided a backdrop for all manner of offscreen Hollywood drama, but LA's famed Chateau Marmont has turned in some memorable on-screen performances as well, from a cameo in Oliver Stone's Doors biopic to a co-starring role in Sofia Coppola's Somewhere.
