The Forgotten Magic of the Crowne Plaza Penthouse

This out-of-service penthouse is very possibly the coolest location I’ll ever shoot in. The ninth and tenth floors of the (former) Astrodome Hotel feature eight bedrooms of ranging themes, four fireplaces, a pool, floor to vaulted ceiling fountain, two dining rooms (informal and fully-mirrored formal), a kitchen, library, wrap around balcony with a 360 view of Houston, haphazard AstroTurf, and a “nightclub” which is really just a scaled model of the Astrodome, currently used as an Astros banquet hall.
