Oh yes... "Come on up and see me sometime", a famous Mae West quote.
While you're at it, check out the Cottonwood Hotel's Studio Suite #4 , sometimes referred to as the Mae West Suite. With the original clawfoot tub, it might have once held some good ole bathtub gin! Movie poster's and Ms. West pictures can be found hanging on the walls in this cute little studio suite with kitchenette. One poster in particular is "Everyday's a Holiday"... which was Mae West's last picture distributed by Paramount Productions in 1938.
This suite also flaunts a mirror on the ceiling over the bed, with sheer's draped around. Now that's a classic Mae West decor!
Mae West "Everydays A Holiday!"
So come and see where Mae West once roomed, right here at the historic Cottonwood Hotel.
A Cottonwood oldtimer was quite smitten one day, when he recollected Ms. West coming to town. "'I remember 'ole Mae, staying right here at the Cottonwood Hotel. I was just a youngster", said the old timer. "Sometime in the twenties, maybe 1927. She was up behind, 'ur alley, between those two buildings", as he pointed. "She rubbed her hands through some 'ole whiskey barrels behind the old Requenda bar. I think she was doin' some entertainin' there too, besides the Rialto Theater. She was with some good 'ole boys. They were in the back poker room of the bar for hours".
Mae West was back in Cottonwood as she stopped by on her way to Hollywood. She moved to California from Broadway in 1932.
In 1933 Mae West production "I'm no Angel", was being showed at the Orpheum Theater in Phoenix. The ornate gilded box office matched its front marquee, which promoted the movie. Mae West sat out front with her chauffuer in a photograph on opening day of the show. Ms. West was known as America's most startling woman.
