Chateau Marmont is a 1920s-era legend that has hosted a cavalcade of Hollywood stars, from Robert Mitchum to Natalie Wood, but maybe its stickiest memory is laying claim to being the place where John Belushi overdosed.
The castle-like hotel was originally built as an imitation of the Chateau Amboise on the Loire in France. The hotel has sixty-three rooms, and cottages and bungalows that put a premium on privacy.The heated outdoor pool is surrounded by gardens and a large sunny patio. The hotel’s Bar Marmont is a low-key favorite serving stick-to-your ribs European fare.
Harry “King” Cohn, the founder of Columbia Pictures, advised, “If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont.”
