Inspired by a royal residence in France’s Loire Valley, Chateau Marmont brings even more fantasy to the land of make-believe. What makes this hotel so iconic is hard to say. Perhaps its array of (in)famous guests, its sex appeal, or just the ability to become whoever one desires at this place. The hotel’s highly personal history, its rich past and tarnished patina are all a part of the charm. There is definitely an elegant simplicity about the décor, and each of the rooms are small homes of their own.
