Wild Palms

I'm staying at this boutique hotel in the Bay Area. Its old, and some of the furniture and such is showing its age. But she's a quaint old beauty, and they keep her clean and neat. She has that air of old Hollywood, 1950's California chic, and much like an aging Hollywood starlet, under some soft lights, she still looks alluring.
I decided to take some shots with the night setting . . .
Reflections in the fountain pool

A moonlit night by the pool

The open air lobby

Another view

The hall to the open air lobby, flanked by old benches and palms

One of the murals painted at the end of each hall
