If you want to live like a celebrity even for a night then sample a stay in one of these popular celeb hotspots. For sure, Hollywood’s rich and famous know how to live it up!
Chateau Marmont Hotel and Bungalows
8221 Sunset Boulevard,
Hollywood, California 90046
Chateau Marmont is the iconic celebrity hideaway. With its long history of sheltering Hollywood royalty from prying eyes, hence the famous Harry Cohn quote, “If you must get into trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont.”
One thing the Chateau Marmont is known for is its staff’s discretion; you can count on them to be tight-lipped about almost everything. Well, everything except the bill particularly if you ring up $46,350.04 in hotel fees and have no plans of paying for it like Lindsay Lohan.
But otherwise, the Hollywood nostalgia of Chateau Marmont is more homey than its hotel feel because of its unique and cosy serviced apartments. Celebs can choose to retreat into any of the 63 rooms, cottages and bungalows which have fully-furnished kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, balconies and private terraces. The sound-proof walls are perfect for private parties (Lady Gaga and Lindsay Lohan’s sleepovers), rockstar get-togethers (Led Zeppelin rode their motorcycles through the hotel lobby) or stars just having a good time (Katy Perry & John Mayer, Michael Bay & various gal pals). Well, you know how celebs are behind closed doors; some go into a creative retreat and spend days and months inside the Chateau Marmont Hotel working on a script or a novel, while some refuse to even leave becoming regular celeb fixtures at the Chateau.
Shutters on the Beach Hotel
1 Pico Blvd
Santa Monica, CA 90405
Brad’s best ladies, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston are the A-list beach babes who couldn’t resist the relaxing seaside retreat offered by the Shutters On The Beach hotel. Starting at $480 a night, the Shutters on the Beach Hotel is actually located on the beach unlike other Santa Monica hotels in the area. Most of the 186 rooms have balconies and white wooden shutters with a grand view of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel offers guests a chance to enjoy surfing lessons, rent bicycles and do yoga sessions on the beach.
Much like Chateau Marmont, Lindsay Lohan is also a blacklisted celeb here, but not for stiffing the hotel, but more for trashing her suite during her three day stay.
Sunset Marquis Hotel & Villas Sunset
1200 Alta Loma Road
West Hollywood, CA 90069
The Sunset Marquis Hotel was built in 1963 and is deemed as a fave haunt of celeb musicians due to its proximity to musical joints such as the Viper Place, House of Blues and Roxy. Rockstars (Dave Grohl, Lars Ulrich, Bob Dylan) models (Alessandra Ambrosio, Jill Goodacre) and actresses (Renee Zellweger, Jessica Alba, Katie Holmes) were spotted time and again at the luxurious Sunset Marquis Hotel which is known for its destination bar, photo studio and recording studio.
