“A historic celebrity hotel”
Each of the sixty-three rooms, cottages and bungalows are a home of their own. The majority have full kitchens, sitting areas or living rooms, some have formal dining rooms, balconies and private terraces. The scale is gracious from a long gone era, perfect for hosting an impromptu party-thick soundproof walls-(after all the hotel was built as the first earthquake proof building in LA) ensure privacy. There is a simple perfection to these spaces, elegant simplicity, and room to move-the white curtains billow seductively with the softest of breezes. The balconies offer the perfect perch for looking out or being above it all- with views reaching from the wide panorama of the spreading city to the twinkling lights of tinsel town, down the pulsing beat of sunset strip and deep into lush green of the hotel garden. No one knows who is haunting the Chateau Marmot. Some claim it is John Belushi who died there in 1982 of a drug overdose. Others believe it was a random guest who died in one of the rooms. In any event, many people have reported many different sightings. People have had unexplained phenomena such as moving objects, including furniture, unexplained noises and voices and the feeling of an unseen presence.
The Chateau Marmont is such an iconic Hollywood hotel that if you get the chance to stay you absolutely must. What most people may not know about the chateau is that it's rumored to be haunted by some of the celebrities who died while staying there. John Belushi is one of the ghosts that has been spotted wandering by the outdoor pool at night. Guests looking to bump into him might want to book Bungalow #3 as it's where he died. Even Jim Morrison's ghost is rumored to have stuck around long after his death.
