Nowhere can match the Chateau Marmont for fantastical, legendary tales of splendour and excess. Late-night shenanigans, police getaways and rock ‘n’ roll star overdoses might seem like the stuff of movies, but this is a place where the silver screen comes to life.
Everybody who’s anybody has stayed here. The celebrity roll call—from James Dean and Jim Morrison, to Bono and Scarlett Johansson—only scratches the surface. Such notoriety is by no means a guarantee of quality, but a single glance inside through the gothic arches confirms your in the not only safe, but exclusive, silky hands of a grand hotel. Unsurprisingly, Hollywood history and luxury have their price, and it starts at $500 per night.
