Unique- Even By West Hollywood Standards.
A beacon of West Hollywood – Sunset Marquis Hotel has been a home for singers, actors, comedians, writers, filmmakers and fashion designers for over 50 years now since its opening in 1963.
It’s been Rock Stars home away from home, a well-kept secret located on a small residential street just off the Sunset Strip which over the years became a world-class destination for Hollywood A-listers. Here you will enjoy fine dining (right next to Steven Taylor or Taylor Swift for example) and luxurious suites and villas, overlooking private pools and unique sense of tranquility and serenity.
The main entry way to the Hotel almost reminds you a lobby of the small apartment complex but the minute you walk in you can sense Old Hollywood Glamour and you know that you have arrived to the most decadent hotel in West Hollywood. Portraits of starts and musicians who won many Grammies (and recorded some of the winning songs in the hotel’s private studio) decorate lobby walls as you enter to the small court yard and most notorious lobby bar anywhere.
Sunset Marquis is a Mediterranean oasis nestles on the hills off the famed Sunset Strip. Recently much desired face lift of the property gave it a more modern and accommodating feel which range of fine amenities. I really enjoyed what they did to the property. I have visited it few times already as I like the privacy and intimacy of the Hotel, not to mention its location. I loved staying in the villas which offer more privacy as they are further away from the restaurants and bars which can become entertaining at night. They come with private dining area and livign room great for entertaining, very beautiful and spacious bathrooms. Villas are also nicely tucked in between small gardens, where you can enjoy private lounge areas and fire pits for afternoon cocktails and private villas pool. (Suites are nice but if you book chose the one with the pool view for more sun-light)
Sunset Marquis’ casual Cavatina restaurant is the only restaurant on property. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner but do not be worried, the selection of food is unbelievably good and variety is endless. You will find almost anything you like. Its relaxed vibe and atmosphere is very inviting and you can indulged with anything from Snacks Small Plates or their Award winning burgers for Happy Hours to entrees like Oysters, Yellowtails, Prime Steaks and list of fine cocktails.
And loosen your “Strings” in one of the 4 private spa cabins, their personnel is very well trained and offers personalized treatments designed to your needs. You can choose also one of the outdoor cabanas by the pool and ask for a special dish from their Spa Cuisines
PLAY at Bar 1200
West Hollywood best kept secret is not a secret when it comes to Bar 1200. It is not just a hotel bar it’s more of the destination for hotel guests and locals. The bar is very intimate and cozy probably can sit maximum 40 guests and it will feel very crowded. Here you can enjoy fine drink, meet friends or run into your favorite artist. It did happen to me on various occasions. In fact At Sunset Marquis it feel natural to see famous people dining at your site, some more friendly will share a word with you or even a drink. It has so much history and certain buzz to which makes it one of the most unique hotels in Hollywood and therefore so frequently visited by rock stars, film directors, award winning actors and more.
If you want your very own unique experience visit Sunset Marquis which has prospered as Luxury Hollywood Hotel for over a decades
