LA is in every way a city where you can be whoever you want as long as you can back it up. And, those who can, will inevitably find themselves staying the night, or partying all night, in the storied hallways and lounges of Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
Modeled after a French palace in Loire Valley, Chateau Marmont is graced with 63 rooms, suites, cottages, bungalows and penthouses. Almost all the accommodations have a kitchen, and all of them have sound proof walls (make what you will of that!)
If you arrive at the Chateau with a preconceived notion of what it will be like inside, you'll be delighted to know that you're probably right. The decor is a patchwork blend of gothic, retro-rival and retro-chic working in concert to create a hotel that is both historic and hip.
Now, arriving at the Chateau on Sunset strip with a vision of what it will look like is one thing, but anticipating who you'll encounter, or what you might get up to while you're there, is quite another.
