This luxury hotel in Los Angeles is where the stars go to get their rocks off in private (or in public, if they court the limelight). Built in 1920 using blueprints drawn from a French castle in the Loire Valley, Chateau Marmont has a history as spectacular as its architecture, and a reputation as hedonistic as it is glamorous. The arts and crafts ‘castle on the hill’ is the epitome of all that’s great and good about tinseltown: glamorous, cool and utterly captivating.In-room beauty treatments and spa therapies can be arranged at the drop of a face-shielding sunhat – this is the land of the beautiful people, so you can expect your treatments to be top of the range. They’ll even arrange a personal trainer, should you so wish. If you’re bringing a stupendously large wardrobe of red-carpet dresses, supersized rolling racks (that’s a garment rail, if you’ve more Baftas than Oscars) can be added to your suite for US$30 a day.
