The Millennium Biltmore celebrates its 80h anniversary

The Millennium Biltmore celebrates its 80h anniversary this year. Many  films were shot there such as Pretty in Pink, Ocean's Eleven, Dare Devil,  Stansky and Hutch, Bugsy, Ghostbusters, Fight Club to name just a few.  Some  television shows that have shot at the Biltmore include: Alias, Six Feet  Under and  West Wing.

This historic hotel offers many luxurious experiences for its guests: enjoy  the rich history of the hotel; reminisce of movie scene shot throughout the  premises; take a dip in the Grecian-style pool at the health club or relax  treat yourself to day spa therapies; dine in the "Best Japanese Restaurant  Downtown, Sai Sai; take pleasure in comfort of a Biltmore suite; socialize  either at the sexy Gallery bar or watch the game at the Grand Avenue bar.   Whatever your desire is, the Millennium Biltmore will cater to your needs.

The Millennium Biltmore is rich in historical background. The artist  Giovani Smeraldi who also worked on the Vatican and the White House,  completed exquisite fresco artwork throughout the hotel, capturing the  opulent style of the 20's.  In 1927 the Academy Awards first came to  conception in the Crystal ballroom, in fact the Oscar statuette was sketched  on a linen napkin in the ballroom. Hence many Academy Award ceremonies took  place at the Biltmore. Shirley Temple, Bette Davis and Spencer Tracy  received their Oscar at the Biltmore.  In 1964 the Beatles secretly landed  by helicopter on the rooftop of the Biltmore to hide from the mobs of  screaming fans for a few restful days during their first U.S. tour.  Historical photographs of the roaring 20's can be viewed throughout the  hotel.

Did you see the movie Cocoon? Remember the swimming pool the cocoons with  healing and regenerative properties? Those scenes were filmed in the  Biltmore's swimming pool. The Health club was formerly a men's club, now it  is coed. It was designed in the fashion of a 20's cruise line ship. The  health club is soothing, equipped with a Jacuzzi, a spacious steam room,  weights and cardio equipment. Also at the Health Club, facials, massages  and other treatments are available. I highly recommend you treat yourself  to the healing nature of the Biltmore Health Club, you won't be sorry.

It is no wonder Sia Sai was voted "Downtown's Best Japanese Restaurant."  When one enters they are greeted by an attentive staff, the hostess wearing  a kimono is the beginning of the experience. The atmosphere of Sai Sai is  Zen ambiance as the lounge music sets the stage for Chef Ricardo Zarate's  creations. Chef Ricardo has infused Peruvian spice with the art of Japanese  Cuisine, giving the food a flare of excitement. The food is impeccably  fresh; it seems to have just skipped off the boat.

The chili spiced edamame is fantastic; I never enjoyed edamame  so much.  The grilled shitake is recommended as well as the roasted eggplant, it is  like eating black onyx. The Yellowtail Ceviche with jalapeno and red onion  dressed with ponzu dressing is mouthwatering; as well as the Tuna Taki with  chili dikon and garlic ships.   Sia Sai offers a Theater Special, $70 for a  couple which includes a four course meal from sushi to robatayaki amd  dessert. 

Lunch is served 11:30-2:30 Mon.-Fri. Dinner is served 6-10pm.   Call 213-624-1100 for reservations
