The name, Chateau Marmont, may be familiar to you. Its long history of service to the stars of Hollywood has coloured its name with famous and infamous tales. The walls of this establishment have been privy to the celebrations, tragedies and drama of LA’s popular crowds. Priding itself on its discretion, Chateau Marmont has retained its trendiness amongst LA’s modern, sociable elite. Maintaining a South-of-France, paradise-in-the-sun sense of 20th century decadence, the Chateau features beautiful European architecture with high-ceilings and cozy corners . The patio and pool area remain one of the best places in Los Angeles to socialise, and the drinks aren’t too shabby either. For an all-round LA introduction to the Hollywood lifestyle, Chateau Marmont is the place to stay.
Montage Beverly Hills
The European palatial architecture is complete with marble floors, glistening hanging chandeliers and the service to match the hotel’s grandeur.

Hotel Casa del Mar
Located in a prime Santa Monica beach location, Casa del Mar brings an Italian palazzo to the heart of California’s most desirable city.

The soft linens, marble bathrooms, four-poster beds and sea breeze, make this a standout stay in a quintessential luxury urban hotel.
