Chateau Marmont is a hotel located at 8221 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, California. The hotel was built in 1927 and was modeled loosely after the Château d’Amboise, a royal retreat in France’s Loire Valley. The hotel has 63 rooms, suites and bungalows that are set amidst private gardens where they offer panoramic views of Los Angeles. Play of light and shadow in the paths leading to the bungalows create a mysterious whimsy, giving the feeling that anything can happen. In general, the exterior lighting is warm, soft, and veiled.
