I was lucky enough to stay at Chateau Marmont while visiting a friend in LA who had been put up there while working on an album for Paul McCartney as a sound engineer. I knew the history and reputation of the place, and ok so yes, it's posher than I've even experienced, and I would never be able to afford to actually pay to stay there, however I was made to feel so welcome, the staff were not snooty at all and were friendly and approachable.
The little pool was lovely, and great for a late night dip. So relaxing. I spent more on the car valet than I did on food! I am not sure if I over did it, but I tipped $10 every time he brought my little beetle soft top to me.
Location is fantastic, I would say if you can afford it, even if you just have a flying visit to West Hollywood, stay at Chateau Marmont, the deco is gorgeous, I was obsessed with the bath taps and now have a picture I took of one on my wall.
Loved it, but hey.. It was free and I was a very lucky boy, so I have to big it up.. :)More
