The Chateau Marmont
The Chateau Marmont is a hip and historic Los Angeles landmark. It is, simply, a gothic castle that evokes old-Hollywood and attracts an array of patrons including a large number of celebrities.
"Chateau is the perfect co-conspirator; as Harry Cohn, founder of Columbia Pictures said in 1939, "If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont." You can be yourself or, better yet, be whomever you want to be; don't be surprised if your visit brings out your inner Howard Hughes, your Greta Garbo, your Jim Morrison. As public or private as you wish - there are those in residence who are desperate to be seen and others who choose to remain anonymous. The eccentric and highly personal history of the place, its luscious rich past, its tarnished patina are all part of the charm." - A.M. Homes
