An iconic old world chateau and luxury Hollywood hotel situated in the heart of Sunset Boulevard...

Chateau Marmont, Los Angeles

Nothing can prepare you for seeing the sheer scale of seeing the old-world Chateau Marmont towering above on LA’s Sunset Strip. A fabulous old-world hotel, replicated loosely after the Château d’Amboise (a royal retreat in France’s Loire Valley- said to be Leonardo da Vinci’s final resting place) it’s stature is as iconic as its star-studded history. Opening the same year as the first ever Academy Awards in 1929, it’s greatest charm has always been privacy for Hollywood’s elite. From Jean Harlow, who was rumoured to have conducted an affair with Clark Gable here, to James Dean jumping through the roof of Bungalow Number Two while auditioning for Rebel Without a Cause on the hotel grounds, to Howard Hughes lived in room number 64, or Billy Idol- who famously trashed his suite. In short, pretty much everyone who’s anyone has stayed here. Rooms start at $900+ per night but, if you want to enjoy the architecture, there’s a beautiful and discrete courtyard open for drinks and light bar snacks…
