“If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont”–Harry Cohn
“If you want to be seen, go to the Beverly Hills Hotel. If you don’t want to be seen, go to Chateau Marmont.”–pretty much everyone who was anyone in Hollywood since the 1930s
Need a relatively quiet place to write a screenplay or stay while you film a project in town? Check into the Chateau Marmont!
Need a private place to stay after your spouse kicked you out of the marital home? Check into the Chateau Marmont!
Need a discrete place to stay for, ahem, extracurricular activities that could endanger your reputation? Check into the Chateau Marmont!
(Obviously I missed my calling writing ad copy for this place. . . .)
