Hotel Paisano – Marfa, Texas

The high point of the Paisano’s history came in 1955, when the cast and crew of Giant occupied the hotel during the film’s three-month shoot in and around Marfa. “It was the most exciting thing we’ve had in Marfa in all these years,” says Lucy Garcia, a town native who was one of a half-dozen teenagers to hang out at the hotel during the shoot. “Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor were here, but they were a little too big for Marfa. They gave us autographs but wouldn’t allow any pictures. James Dean let us take pictures of him at the hotel and showed us the lasso rope trick he was learning for the movie. He told jokes. He had such a pretty giggle.”

In June of that year the cast and crew including James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson made the hotel their headquarters. Today, the hotel still has many visitors that come to see and remember Giant. James Dean’s hotel room here is one of the most popular that we have to offer.
