    You’ll feel like a celeb yourself as you ride the elevator straight from the garage to your room. And the mojito at the always-fashionable Bar Marmont might just be the best in Los Angeles. Read more

    The rooms evoke a Los Angeles familiar from noir films: 1950s kitchenettes, Art Deco furniture and carpeting, and tiled bathrooms that are a bit more about charm than function. Read more

    The restaurant is teensy, about ten tables. Better to dine in the courtyard, where you might eavesdrop on tabloid favorites, or in the mission-style lobby, where everyone crosses your path. Read more

    A carefully curated old world ambiance in a city that obsesses over the new. Hotelier André Balazs has nailed it and the cocktails, food (bolognese & killer fried chicken), rooms and service all work.

    Built in 1927 and was modeled loosely after the Château d'Amboise, a royal retreat in France's Loire Valley. Atmosphere of old Hollywood! Rich in history & mystery. LA's Historic-Cultural Monument.

    I have experienced my share of, dare I say, debauchery in the many chateaux in the Loire Valley in France. But this chateau might take the gateau.
