Which hotel was the backdrop to the classic movie, Citizen Kane?
If you guessed OHEKA CASTLE (1919) in Huntington, New York, you guessed correctly! OHEKA CASTLE has served as the backdrop for many television and film productions, including the classic film, Citizen Kane (1941), and the present-day television series, Royal Pains.
OHEKA CASTLE regally stands on a manicured private estate in the heart of New York’s Long Island. Influenced by the grandeur of years past, this family-owned castle graciously welcomes guests into its luxurious hotel with historic charm. The New York Times declared the hotel built by financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn in 1919 as “the finest country estate in America,” and the chateau remains the second-largest private residence ever built in America. In 1984, the estate, then in a dilapidated state, was purchased by the current owner and underwent a painstaking restoration to bring the historic OHEKA CASTLE back to its original opulence.
