All The Locations Featured in "Inventing Anna"
Love her or hate her, you have to admit she has taste. Anna "Delvey" Sorokin has enthralled Netflix viewers in the recently released series based on her life posing as a German heiress, tricking New York City's elite into thinking she was worth $65 million. Sorokin conned her way into long stays at luxury hotels, vacations fit for a queen, incredible parties and lavish meals at some of the Big Apple's finest restaurants.
"Inventing Anna" is based on real-life events concerning Anna Sorokin and the people in her life. The Netflix series kept things authentic by filming mostly in New York City where Anna swindled her way to the top, but it also took us around the world. From the 11 Howard hotel in New York to a yacht in Ibiza to the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, here are several locations featured in "Inventing Anna" that you can visit.
11 Howard (12 George)
Note: Some of this text may contain spoilers, and while we know that filming did take place at many of the actual locations, some of the hotels opted not to allow filming inside. Instead, crews made recreations or filmed in similar-looking locations.
11 Howard (called 12 George in the series) is the hotel where Anna stays the longest, three months, and meets the concierge Neff who then becomes her friend. During her stay, Anna racks up a total bill of $30,000.
While creating the illusion of wealth by tipping in hundreds, Anna conveniently forgets to give the hotel a credit card when she checks in but is removed from the hotel once she's caught.

Anna also dines frequently at the hotel's restaurant, Le Coucou, charging meals to her room along the way.
And we're not talking your typical hotel bar fare.

After Anna is no longer allowed at 11 Howard, she moves her things over to The Mercer hotel, which she plans to move into after her notorious trip to Morroco.

Speaking of that infamous trip, why would you offer a trip to all of your friends if you couldn't pay for it? We have no idea, but that's what happened. Anna, her trainer Kacy, friend Rachel and a videographer landed at La Mamounia, an insanely beautiful luxury resort in Marrakech.
We see in many of the scenes that the hotel staff attempts to secure a working credit card from Anna, which they never receive. After Anna promises to sort out the money problem with her bank, friend Rachel puts down her company credit card after being assured that it will only be a hold until Anna pays. This results in Rachel having over $60,000 billed to her company Amex. Yikes!

When Anna returns from Morocco, she goes to The Beekman — claiming The Mercer is sold out — for a 20-night stay.
After not being able to pay her $11,518.59 bill, Anna gets locked out of her room.

Forget hotels for a minute. Episode 2 gets Delvey out of New York and onto a yacht off the coast of Ibiza, Spain, with her boyfriend, Chase.
Did we mention she had good taste?

281 Park Avenue South
In the series, you'll frequently see this beautiful building that Anna regularly visits, making plans to set up The Anna Delvey Foundation, an exclusive members-only arts club that mostly exists in her mind. This is the location that Anna attempts to take two very large loans (around $40 million) out against.
The historic building built in 1892 now houses Fotografiska, a branch of the Swedish photography museum.
281 Park in the Show
In the series, Anna's lawyer is shown hanging out with his daughter in Central Park when Assistant District Attorney Catherine McCaw approaches him about Anna's Case.
The show depicts a very typical New York day in the park — a must for any visitor wanting a quintessential Manhattan experience.

Le Parker Meridien (Thompson Central Park)
Anna dines at this hotel in the show and attempts a very cringeworthy "dine and dash" scenario.
Let's just say, it doesn't go well.

Madison Square Park
Madison Square Park is where Neff confronts Rachel about visiting Anna in Jail.
That also doesn't go well, as we find out later in the series that Rachel falls victim to Anna's antics and is left with the previously mentioned $60,000 bill charged to her company Amex card.

Ah, yes, to be invited to a prestigious art fundraiser with the big players in the New York art scene certainly means you're on your way.

Beauty & Essex
Beauty & Essex is a swanky restaurant that you enter through a pawn shop — how very New York!
It's the setting for one of the show's scenes in which Reed and his wife inform their daughter that she'll be financially cut off if she doesn't decide either an academic or career path for her life.

When it becomes clear to Anna that she won't be able to run her con at any more hotels in New York City, she takes off to the famous Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, California.
In the series, this is where Anna drinks her body weight in alcohol, takes way too many pills and ultimately decides to go to rehab because we all know how luxurious those Hollywood rehab centers can be.

With all of New York's elite heading to the Hamptons each summer, you'd think it would be a prime location for Anna to visit.

New York City Criminal Court Building
This is a less fun stop on our "Inventing Anna" tour.
In real life, Anna Sorokin was charged in New York City Criminal Court (pictured) for eight convictions, including first-degree attempted grand larceny and theft of services, to name a few. The court is located in Manhattan's Civic Center district, but the courthouse filmed in the series is located in Lower Manhattan.

Kent is seen visiting Anna several times at New York's notorious Rikers Island, a 413-acre island that's home to New York City's main jail.
For those who really want to visit, you better do it fast, as the jail is closing to be replaced by a network of more modern jail facilities.
