History[edit] The building originally was designed for the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (B.P.O.E). Done in the Gothic Revival architecture style (Neo-Gothic), the building still sports a brass sculpture of a set of elk antlers embedded in the clock above the grand entry to the building. Eventually, the Elks sold the building due to shrinking attendance in their ranks, and the building ended up being transformed into a luxury hotel, set perfectly then on the shores of what was once a very glamorous MacArthur Park. In the 1980s the hotel was the site of after hours nightclubs like Power Tools. (source: Los Angeles Times, April 3, 1987) In 2016 it was announced that the hotel will be restored by a development group that restored the Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard. (source: Curbed L.A.)

Setting[edit] Though the neighborhood has gone through a period of urban decay and now urban renewal, the building, replete with angels at every corner, has lost none of its ethereal beauty and elan, making it truly one of the classic examples of Beelman's architecture left standing in the modern world. The building is now vacant, mainly used as a rental for movie shoots and special events, however, the City of Los Angeles thought the architecture significantly important enough to warrant a City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department Historic-Cultural Monument No. 267, as far back as the early 1980s. This is significant in that many other Wilshire Boulevard area landmarks fell prey to the wrecking ball during that time period, such as the notable Brown Derby. Luckily, despite the demolition of important landmarks all around it, the grand entrance and ballroom of the Elk's No. 99 / Park Plaza building still bears its old jazz agegrandeur, much to the relief of Los Angeles architectural aficionados. The elaborate interior murals and decorative paintings were designed and executed by Anthony Heinsbergen and Co, noted painter of many Los Angeles cultural landmarks. The central design of the lobby ceiling is based on the Villa Madama, a Renaissance era project by Raphael and Giulio Romano.

Architect[edit] Claud Beelman (1883–1963) was a prominent architect in his day, having worked his way up from a lowly draftsman in the midwest at the turn of the 20th century, to one of the popular architects in all of Los Angeles, if judged by the importance given the innumerable structures still standing that still bear his name. Sadly, Beelman was nearly forgotten in the modern age until the Wilshire Center and downtown areas of Los Angeles went through a recent renaissance and, luckily, the beauty of Beelman's austere body of work has been discovered by a new fan base internationally.

In popular culture[edit] The music video for Kendrick Lamar's 2017 hit song "Humble" was filmed here in several shots, Steve Perry's 1984 hit song "Oh Sherrie" was filmed here, as was the music video for Pat Benatar's Lipstick Lies (1984), Anastacia's 2000 hit song "I'm Outta Love" and the music video for Maroon 5's 2015 hit song "Sugar." The 2013 film Gangster Squad starring Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Nick Nolte had the final shootout scene filmed here. The hotel was used for the prom scene in the films Not Another Teen Movie and Prom Night. The 1987 film Less Than Zero filmed several scenes in the movie at this hotel.[2] Other TV-series and movies filmed here are:[3] New York, New York (1977) Blood Feud (1979) Stripes (1981) Young Doctors in Love (1982) Dempsey (1983) Dr. Detroit (1983) Naked Gun (1988) Stargate (1988) Wild at Heart (1990) The Hunt for Red October (1990) Hook (1991) Barton Fink (1991) Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) Chaplin (1992) Final Analysis (1992) Reservoir Dogs (1992) What's Love Got to Do with It?
