ultimate hipster bar and lounge. very near the house on Sunset Blvd. home of Oscar and Grammy parties. old historical hotel. you will pass it daily near Sunset and Crescent Heights. As you head west on Sunset, it's on the left hand side. worth a look around. if you go in the evening, go early or you won't get in.

Beautiful, swanky, Old Hollywood style bar. I came here to meet up with co-workers and grab a bite to eat one weeknight. Everything was amazing including the drinks. Will definitely be back!

Excellent savory and unique food in the restaurant. One of my favorite places to go during the week. Celebrity sightings. I love the outdoor atmosphere. Very Turkish looking.

A fascinating place to eat and observe the diners and attendants. For many generations this has been a centerpiece meeting place for the entertainment industry. The high prices of the menu items are for the environment you are in, not their ultra-high quality of preparation, which is good but not stellar.

This landmark on the Sunset Strip is really fantastic. The Chateau is a gorgeous mansion set on the side of a hill, and the rooms, history, and bar all make this place unforgettable.

Hidden off LA's Sunset Strip, this faux French castle has been a legendarily discreet hideaway for movie stars, rock musicians and other famous faces for generations. Still today the hotel is known for its stellar service - there's almost nothing they'd say no to doing for you - and its romantic garden bungalows, ideal for naughty trysts.

If you'd rather see some "living" history, play it cool and make your way to Chateau Marmont, a hotel seeped in Hollywood lore and home to more celebs in any given month than all five seasons of Celebrity Rehab combined. You might not be able to afford more than an iced tea on the beautiful garden terrace (food is somewhat more broke-girl-friendly at Bar Marmont, just down the hill), but you'd be hard-pressed to find better stargazing anywhere in town.

A Hollywood legend as much for its striking neo Gothic fantasy architecture as for being a playground for celebs behaving badly. Best known of all as the venue for the tragic death of John Belushi after a cocaine binge, further back it was cited as the place where Clark Gable and Jean Harlow held their secret trysts. James Dean and Doors singer Jim Morrison both behaved badly here too. The hotel is also thought to have been the inspiration for The Eagles' hit song 'Hotel California'.

The Chateau Marmont is like an oasis in the heart of the city, except for the fact that it's no secret. Definitely an attraction for tourists and celebs alike, the hotel is always busy. But how can you blame them? The grounds are beautiful, the pool area a mini retreat, and unique individual bungalows that are more like retro condos. The hotel itself is stunning as well, with quite a celebrity history. Dare I say it, but the Chateau is "so LA". (I mean that in the best way possible!)

Wow. I have seen all of the room categories and while this hotel is extremely expensive, the rooms leave a bit to be desired. There are other reasons to stay here. Star sightings are abundant, the service is discreet, a legendary hotel where so much of Hollywood's history has transpired. The pool scene is pretty fabulous, bring your biggest movie star shades, you'll need them.

This historic hotel was designed and constructed in 1929 to be earthquake proof, and survived major earthquakes in 1933, 1953, 1971, 1987 and 1994 without sustaining any major structural damage. The Chateau has a legacy as muse for generations of artists, photographers, novelists and screenwriters. Hunter S. Thompson, Annie Leibovitz, Dorothy Parker, Bruce Weber, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tim Burton, Lorne Michaels, Jay McInerney, Sofia Coppola, among others, all have produced work from within the hotel’s walls. Enjoy a meal at the hotel’s restaurant to take in the historic grandeur of the hotel, or grab a drink and a bite at the Bar Marmont, just a few doors up on Sunset.

Exclusive and full of celebrities. Check it out at your own risk. You might be followed by paparazzi or TMZ.

I love this old Hollywood hotel and the chateau is one of LA's greatest landmarks, proving that the city's obsession with youth does not extend to hotels.
The burgers at the bar are fantastic and the cocktails, like everything else at this hotel, are cool and classic.

This hotel is central, has good food and is a great place to hang out. And if you are in Los Angeles and want to brush shoulders with the celebs this is the spot. Don't miss checking out the ceiling at Bar Marmont... It is covered in butterflies!

So I went here with Max Azria (name dropping-I'm so LA) and sat in the garden, which is amazing. The french fries are really good. I wasn't a fan of the artichoke. It was really difficult to eat. I would say they have a great wine list but they didn't have Chateau Margaux so it wasn't that great. I'm curious to see the rooms. The pool area wasn't that amazing compared to other pool areas in LA. The inside is like an old castle and really cool looking. I definitely wouldn't mind staying here.

As soon as you see this hotel, you know there is a history here. Its hard to find the entrance, its dark and gloomy, and it hasn't been updated ever. And that's not completely a bad thing depending on what you are looking for. It keeps an authentic, old Hollywood vibe. While speaking to the bellmen, I mentioned that this hotel feels like a place where a celebrity might come for a 3 day coke binge and overdose. He then admitted that John Belushi overdosed here in the 80's. I wasn't surprised. That's the kind of place this feels like. The rooms are more like small apartments than a hotel rooms. It feels more like you're staying with a friend than in a hotel. The room keys are actually... keys. No key cards here. Everything is old and authentic. The pool area isn't very nice and the pool didn't look inviting. Looked like it needed to be cleaned actually. The gym was dark, small and depressing, much like the rest of this hotel and it was clear from the beginning that this hotel is for big Hollywood types that want to stay anonymous and away from the praying eyes of the public. There is a strict, no photography policy at this hotel. All in all it was interesting, but not for me. I didn't like it.

Wonderful looking building that was build many years back to be an apartment building, but after the stock market crashed it was put to use as a hotel. That explains why this hotel doesn't have many single rooms, only 4-5. The lobby has an interesting style, and the rooms are spacious(I saw a suite with queen size bed. The room has a full size fridge in a kitchen area, living area as well as bedroom and bathroom. Amenities are old. The wall tiles in the bathroom were so old it did not feel right, considering the location and the price of $515 for the type of room. I am sure two-bedroom penthouse($4500/day) actually does have new amenities, but I was not able to see it. Overall this hotel is overpriced considering the current condition.
