    Wow, just started watching and already she has no clue what she is talking about. "This style of hotel would not have existed in Florida in the 1920's." Wrong, lady. There was a hotel in Florida that looks extremely similar to one in Some Like It Hot – it was called the Belleview Biltmore hotel, was located in Belleaire Florida and was the largest wooden hotel in North America.

    Maybe cause I grew up in the area but I always thought the hotel in Some Like it Hot was based on the Belleview-Biltmore in Clearwater. It was the largest wood structure in the world when it was built and operated continuously for over 100 years. We have quite a bit of Queen Anne style architecture in historic areas of Florida.
