This Hilton Inn was featured in an early episode of "Route 66," titled "Sheba," aired 1-6-61. (Season 1, Episode 12, with Lee Marvin as guest star.) The two stars, Milner and Maharis, checked in and made such a big deal about the luxury of the place that it might as well have been a paid commercial.
