The Sunset Marquis Hotel and Villas has been a haven for celebrities since 1963. Its location on a quiet dead-end street in West Hollywood removes it from the world and provides a safe retreat for rock stars, movie idols, beleaguered politicians, professional athletes, and A-listers both famous and infamous.
Guest rooms range from spacious private villas to multi-room suites. Lavish furnishings are standard in all units, including marble countertops, Noguchi lamps, pillow-top featherbeds, cascade rain forest showers, and separate tubs. And of course, there is 24-hour butler service and use of a Bentley for those who stay in the Presidential Villa. Two swimming pools are available for guest use.
One of the draws here is the presence of Nightbird Recording Studios, directly beneath the hotel, which is not only a full-service audio laboratory but also a cozy venue for film screenings, stag parties, Superbowl bashes, and intimate soirées. "Restaurant" is the name of Executive Chef Guillaume Burlion's signature restaurant serving market fresh California cuisine, and Bar 1200 is a sanctuary from the paparazzi and throngs of fans, open daily fro 8pm to 2am.
The Sunset Marquis Hotel and Villas is located on a tree-lined, residential cul-de-sac, one block to the west of La Cienega Boulevard and just south of Sunset Boulevard. The address is 1200 Alta Loma Road, West Hollywood, California 90069-2404. As the slogan goes, "Those who know where it is, know where it's at."
