“This is below you and the sister’s standards.”

Upon their arrival in California, Rocky, Adrian and Paulie are driven to seedy downtown Los Angeles to set up digs at the horrendous Hotel Lorane, which is conveniently located near Apollo’s old gym. During the mid-1980’s, this location was also seen on television’s “Scarecrow and Mrs. King” starring Kate Jackson, and Don Johnson’s hit “Miami Vice”.

Since then, this street has undergone some major renovations to the point where the hotel and the surrounding buildings are barely recognizable. Despite the redux, this still isn’t a great neighborhood. The hotel – no doubt a five star experience – now has a sign in disrepair hanging over the door which reads “Loraine Hotel”.

Better find another place to spend your honeymoon.
