There are hotels which conjour images of glamour, decadence, excitement and scandal. The Ritz, The Savoy. The Eltham Motor Lodge (for reasons I shan't disclose here) and of course Chateau Marmont.
Peering down on a faded Sunset Strip, Marmont has been an oasis for movie and music royalty ever since it was born on LA’s first …
... walked on a few stars! Great to see Marilyn Monroe, Bob Hope, Liza Minnelli and The Supremes (D needed a picture!). Stepped on Tom Cruise - so small didn't see him!!!! Stopped off in the Pign' Whistle for a beer and Jameson's before we headed back on the other side and followed more stars. (We did find a link to the Fuku Burger place but it was closed when we got there!!!) Found an amazing shopping centre and then the famous 'hands and ...
I'm sitting outside this coffee shop attached to the public car park here, opposite the Pacific Design Centre. The traffic is zooming past and the sun is beating off the garish blue facia of the PDC building opposite me. There are also PDC buildings in garish green and garish red, next door. I say garish, not because the colours are particularly bright or even offensive, but because the buildings are so big compared with what’s ...
... also liked the Shrek one, which was 4D, so when the donkey sneezed we got sprayed. Despite the place being busy we didn't feel we had to wait for long. Aside from the many food stalls and shops, various actors and characters roamed about (I had my photo taken with Dracula). There were a couple of shows to see: a special effects one, which was pretty obvious; then a delightful display from ...
... WiFi as we waited for the plane. Got slightly freaked out when we did board as the plane didn't take off for ages . . . then they said it was because of removing 2 bags from the plane, because the people didn't board the plane. Freaked me out as there was lots of threats yesterday (anniversary of 9/11) towards LAX by a man that just quit his job there, they arrested him ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau Marmont West Hollywood
My friends and I took a trip to L.A. in July of of 04'. We stayed at the Chateau Marmont in a two bedroom suite, and boy was it a hell of a trip. As soon as you hit the stop light on Sunset Blvd, right next to Marmont st., you see a magnificent white Castle-like building hovering over the city, hidden behind shrubbury. You turn up the small street, and enter the parking garage and greeted graciously. As soon as we walked in, we were wating for the elevators and down the stairs walks BEN STILLER. We saw a total of 5 celebrities while at the hotel: Mandy Moore, Jessica Beil, and Benicio Del Toro to name a few. The lobby is dimmly lit, and done in a period decor of 1960's, but it somehow manages to pull of a new age feel. Our hotel room was amazing! Trees stood outside the window (it made me forget I was in L.A.), the kitchen stocked, flat screen TV, great balcony, beautiful furniture, and the bedrooms were so comfortable. Each bed had 2 feather down pillows along with feather comforters. Cotton robes and slippers were hidden in the closet, and the staff was there to serve your every need. The Chateau at nighttime was filled with Hollywood business men and women, movie stars, directors, and other random people shuttled in and out night after night. We ate in the lobby area two nights during our stay (you could eat in the lobby, outisde, or in the extremely small dining room. No matter what wherever you were a waiter was there to serve you) The food was great, and they had a good variety. The staff was extremely accomodating, and always had a smile (except for one woman who didn't like us very much). The hotel is a must STAY if you visit L.A. It is full of history and opulance that I am SURE you won't find anywhere remotely close to this place in the city. By far the nicest place I have been!
Would never stay anywhere else! Just perfect with great service. Nothing too much trouble for the staff.
After an enormously comprehensive bit of research into my options, I decided on the Chateau Marmont for a special occasion weekend. The reviews are obviously mixed on the Marmont, as they are most everywhere, but I thought it offered the possibility of something out of the ordinary, and it certainly did.
After many trips to LA we eventually got to stay at Chateau Marmont in June 04.
Finally stayed there!
Had always stayed at the Bel Air or Beverly Wilshire or Peninsula and had done lunch at Marmont but found it more shabby than chic....yet this past trip spent 5 nights in a funkily fab suite with real coloured period tilework yet the amenities great and dreamy beds! Looooved the gym which actually is better equiped and maintained than many bigger and pricier hotels-a big plus with me!
The most beautiful wait staff and nice also and the assorted "celebs" hanging arounbd which is standard of those hotels....Marco at the front desk adorable and super helpful. Will definetely go back!!!
Ah, the Marmont! Quelle merveille, as the French would say. After all, this was modeled after a chateau in France and a book was written about it as well! I have stayed in both the smaller rooms in the main building and in one of the villas out by the pool. Each time I have stayed here, I feel privileged and special to be a part of the rich history of this fascinating place. Though the hotel has a distinctly old, if not rarefied feel to it, that is part of its charm. The drawing room is very inviting and the front desk used to give free apples to anyone who stayed here. In the flowerchild, riotous Sunset Strip era, the young hippies came through the windows in the drawing room, so they were boarded up until 1971. Nearly every famous musician has stayed here and a host of movie notables as well. Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski called this home before they moved to the ill fated 10050 Cielo Drive in Bel-Air. My sleeps here have always been comfortable, especially the groovy villa with kitchen and its own bedroom. I felt like I was in my own private little castle and the service was awesome.
The physical property is amazing, and lives up to the hype. I had one of the cottages, and it was a perfect reproduction of a 30s bungalow.
A princely stay at the Marmont
Step back into an era when stars like Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood required the utmost in service and discretion. This Hollywood icon, tucked neatly away on the Sunset Strip will provide you with an experience you will never forget. The original 1950's decor in each room is delightful, off-beat and charming. The service is outstanding with a staff that strives to meet every need. The twenty four hour room service is perfect for those late nights on the most famous strip in the world!
My children and I just returned from a 5 day stay in California which included 3 nights at the Chateau. We stayed in Bugalow 1 whihc had plenty of room and nothing for anyone to break. We had modern conveniences like large television with video & dvd players, and a great cd player for music in the living room. A large veranda provided a safe outdoor play space, and wonderful atmosphere for after dinner drinks with friends. The 24-hour heated pool provided night swims - a new thrill! Breakfast and late nights in the courtyard provided ample opportunities to celebrity watch. The staff were pleasant and happy to accommodate our needs, adjusting the menu for our youngest daughter. The location was perfect for visiting Universal, Manns Chinese theater, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and a straight shot to LAX. We plan to return! Meals were pricey, but we had a full kitchen to help with minor meals and snacks. Immediatley after our arrival we recieved a plate of warm homemade cookies, and each evening we returned to find our drapes drawn and our sheets turned down. We can't wait to return!
Offbeat, elegant and pricey
We make a point to stay at the Marmont once a year for a "Hollywood" weekend of decadence. I've stayed in the cottages, the junior suites and the regular rooms over the years. To me, the regular rooms don't warrant the sky high tarrifs, and the jr suites offer the most bang for your buck. Every accomodation is different and it's this quirkiness that keeps us coming back. It's not fussy or pristine but it is full of atmosphere and homey. The courtyard is great for a long breakfast and the pool is good fun to relax as the buzz of Sunset Blvd goes past the walls. Recent price hikes seem a bit extravagant but I suppose most of the clientel is not footing the bill themselves.
