Hotel Galvez, or Last Year at Marienbad?

Galveston's Hotel Galvez celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, and the people at Moody Gardens have dug up some old pictures for us.
We saw the one above and were taken back to film class at UH. Sure, you think "film class," you think it's a breeze....but then you have to sit through impenetrable stuff like Alain Resnais's Last Year at Marienbad, which we're betting no one who's not a film critic sits through unless they're getting college credit for it.
Why did we have the flashback? Look at the famous still from the movie....
Creepy, man. But believe us, you'd rather spend two hours at a bar in the Strand than looking at this thing and then trying to come up with a symbolism-filled paper on it.
