Vintage Matchbooks From Classic L.A. Places: Saga Motor Hotel


A peek into my crazy huge collection of L.A. matchbooks: Saga Motor Hotel

In the current issue of Los Angeles magazine I listed some tips for viewing the Rose Parade in style.  Just ask this mosaic knight guarding the front door and he’ll tell you what a terrific first vacation of the new year you could have at the fabulous 1959 Saga Motor Hotel. Snooze in the room and watch the parade roll by your window. How could you not love those sleek midcentury lines, tropical landscaping, and a big swimming pool right on Route 66? The prime rooms fill up quickly, so his might be the week to book a room for next year’s parade. Viva Saga!
