    Cool here, to add that the 1929 Academy Awards “After Awards” party was held at the Mayfair Hotel on West 7th Street In downtown Los Angeles. I had the pleasure of working there in 1970 for a few months before moving on to the L.A. Hilton Hotel where I worked for several years before returning to Portland. Also of note,….now standing in the spot once occupied by the L.A. Hilton is the recently completed InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown. This 1,100 foot tall, 73 story hotel with 889 guest rooms is the tallest hotel west of the Mississippi!
