If you're in town to cut your new hit single, you'll appreciate this near-the-Strip spot with two on-site recording studios; or if you're in the market to rock out with celebs, you, too, will appreciate this hidden retreat in the heart of West Hollywood. Many a rocker has called the Sunset Marquis home—check out its oversize portraits lining the walls of the hotel's exclusive Bar 1200. Suites and ultraprivate villas, which are set amid lush gardens, are roomy and plush
with comfy beds, rain showers, and flat-screen TVs. Windows are as soundproof as they come; blackout curtains ensure total serenity. Forty villas are lavish with extras: kitchens, fireplaces, room-size bathrooms, and on-call butlers available to handle everything from unpacking to booking spa appointments. The new restaurant concept Cavatina delights with Mediterranean-influenced small plates delivering garden (and rock star) views.
