Petulia - Motel Room

  After checking in at the Hilton Union Square Hotel the free-spirited Petulia disregards a 'Do Not Walk On Ramp' sign and urges Archie up the narrow car ramp.

Then ...  This is the ramp between the 4th and 5th floor in what is now the Hilton's Tower 3.

... and Now,  it's been over 40 years but the same wall patterns are still there.


Then ...  They reach the 5th floor.  In another nod to technology their key activates a flashing light which guides them to their room, No. 549.

... and Now,  the same location on the 5th floor of Tower 3 today.  In the movie the door, now painted orange, leads directly into their room but in reality it leads into a perimeter corridor for the 5th floor rooms.


  They enter the motel room but Petulia changes her mind  - they are not about to become lovers after all.  Archie is remarkably sanguine under the circumstances, simply telling her that she's 'a kook'.
