    An enjoyable romp of a read regarding one of the great hotels in Los Angeles Shawn Levy is a good historian and has good taste in his subject matter A lot of these stories in this book I have heard before, but then again, I used to work at Book Soup on the Sunset Strip, and therefore one comes across the citizens of this beautiful hotel A good read for a tourist and this is not meant to be a put down, but in actuality, an important book to have in the local interest section of the bookstore An enjoyab...

    You cannot tell the story of Chateau Marmont without telling the story of Hollywood and highlighting the parade of stars who have called it home.Built as a vision, really as a fantasy, it was originally designed as apartments The owner, forced to sell because of the crash in 1929, never saw his dream come to fruition The Chateau, like the neighborhood it s located in, has seen many transitions It s gone from cheap housing to ...
