Address Chateau Marmont 8221 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046, USA

Built in 1929, the Chateau Marmont is one of the most unusual and sultry monuments on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.

Inspired by the Chateau d’Amboise in France, the Chateau Marmont was born out of the desire of a famous Los Angeles attorney to build a luxury apartment complex. When it was built, the building was described by the press as “the most beautiful building in the city”. Transformed into a hotel in 1931, it soon welcomed stars from all over the world, from Marilyn Monroe to Humphrey Bogart, including Scarlett Johansson and Jim Morrison. The scene of unbridled parties, the Chateau Marmont appears in numerous films, series and books.
