My wife and I were in Berlin last weekend and we stayed at the Curator Hotel, recommended in Mark Fisher's article, "Here's How to Shrink Boom-Town Berlin Costs," April 21. The hotel was outstanding. New, immaculate, well-run, comfortable rooms and just off the Kurfurstendamm (and one block from the Kempinski), at only a fraction of the cost. RICHARD E. SHERWOOD Los Angeles

Trustees of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art said they decided not to renew industrialist Armand Hammer's term on their board because he changed his mind about donating his art collection to the museum and was focusing on plans for his own museum. Hammer has served on the county museum board for the last 20 years. But trustees agreed last week to allow his current term to expire June 30. "He's not coming to meetings," board President Daniel N. Belin said. "He has abandoned his commitment to make the gift of his collection."

Four in-the-works musicals are about to receive a lot of exposure--on the Disney lot in Burbank. Excerpts from the quartet of shows will be presented in the ASCAP/Disney West Coast Musical Theater Workshop in several sessions from April 8 to May 17. The readings aren't open to the public, but they're certainly open to Disney brass who might be looking for another "Beauty and the Beast," as well as to other musical theater bigwigs.

Oops! Not all creative accounting in the motion picture industry is premeditated, as followers of Cineplex Odeon Corp. have discovered. Toronto security analysts recently asked the movie and theater company why its 1988 annual report alludes to tax-loss carryforwards of $100 million at the end of 1987, when the annual report for that year said the sum was a mere $15 million. No explanation for the $85-million discrepancy was offered in the latest annual report. But Cineplex Chairman Garth H. Drabinsky solved the mystery with a shrug.

A pattern of discrimination against Jews, blacks, Latinos and women marked the leading corporate law firms of Los Angeles for most of their history. Jews were the first to enter the mainstream of the legal profession in the mid-1950s, followed by the first significant numbers by women in the late 1960s and blacks a few years later. The first Latinos were hired in 1977. Among the firms confronted with increasing pressure to change anti-Jewish policies during the 1950s was O'Melveny & Myers.

In the final, rumor-filled days of the National Gallery of Art's search for a new director, Los Angeles' art community had two burning questions: Would Earl A. (Rusty) Powell III, director of the County Museum of Art, be tapped for the coveted post, and who would succeed Powell if he went to Washington? The first question was answered affirmatively on April 28, but the second continues to simmer. Speculative conversations have suggested some likely prospects--Peter C.
