Fodor's Expert Review Chateau Marmont
8221 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, California, 90046, USA
Built in 1929 as a luxury apartment complex, the Chateau is now one of the most unique see-and-be-seen hotel hot spots in all of L.A. A remarkably good-looking, young, and super-creative crowd of artists, writers, actors, and photographers roams about this historic haunt. Even with an "it" crowd, the hotel is decidedly not a party spot (save for the random private events by the pool), but a calming, countryside oasis set on a hill in the middle of West Hollywood. Charming, private, discreet, and with a five-star level of service, the Chateau is a one-of-a-kind hotel that Hollywood dreams are made of.
- beautiful pool
- some may find it pretentious
