Sherman Oaks, California
-- 15433 Ventura Blvd

Opened in 1968 and only lasting a few years under the Howard Johnson's banner, the property was converted into a Hilton in about 1972. Perhaps it was too upscale to be a Motor Lodge.

Later it became a Radisson and then by 2004 it had been converted into a Courtyard by Marriott. As a Courtyard the furnishings and fixtures in the public areas of the hotel were all pleasingly done in a retro-modern style.
