This is the hotel where “every scandal that ever happened happened,” wrote Truman Capote in 1947. The earthquake-proof Art Deco tower once counted John Wayne among its permanent residents. Rumor has it that he kept a cow on his balcony to supply milk for his morning coffee. And Iggy Pop used to jump into the pool from his apartment window, not always hitting his mark. Cream hues, dusky pink, and wood paneling define the décor, keeping the memories of a glamorous past alive.
