Despite its reputation as a retreat for icons of the entertainment industry, the suites and villas at Sunset Marquis were originally built with the business traveler in mind. It was a belief as true when our West Hollywood hotel opened in 1963 as it is today: it’s not entirely easy to conduct business sitting on the edge of a bed (depending on your business, of course, but that’s your business). The result was the first purpose-built, all-suite hotel in the country, featuring the most essential tools of creativity: ample space and privacy.
Centrally located in West Hollywood, our proximity to Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and downtown LA makes it easy to stay out of that infamous LA traffic, although you may find that most of your meetings will want to join you at Sunset Marquis anyway. A full-service concierge, a spa with individual treatment rooms, two outdoor heated pools, al fresco dining on award-winning food on the patio at our restaurant. This makes all business conversations that much more inviting, and one of the best speak-easy bars in the city truly makes any business visit both memorable and productive.
Some have called Sunset Marquis the “Vortex of Serendipity,” where extraordinary circumstances merge with good fortune to create an atmosphere where business gets done and business ventures are born. Well sure, it’s a pretty cool space, but a “vortex?” Well, come see for yourself and come up with your own colorful description for this unique boutique Hollywood hotel.
North Villa Boardroom
Our North Villa Boardroom comfortably seats twelve and includes a private bathroom and large, flat-screen TV for multi-media presentations. This bright and creative West Hollywood meeting space provides an excellent venue for fostering creativity and open minds, with sliding glass doors that connect to the beautiful villa gardens. Additional equipment such as easels, projectors, screens, or any other items your meeting may require (no livestock allowed on property, sorry…), are also available for rental. Essentials such as notepads and pens are provided and a full complement of catering options are procurable, as well.
North Villa Gardens
With meandering brick paths through a miscellany of foliage, few outdoor venue spaces can offer the serenity, elegance, and inspiration of our North Villa Gardens. Whether you want to host a business networking reception for your team or a five-course dinner under the stars for you and your clients, our luxury Hollywood hotel has the ultimate space for you. We’ve hosted everything from the unveiling of new cars like the Jaguar XJ for a wave of journalists over a two-week period, to a fashion show with lingerie models playing croquet while abusing a poolboy (he was an actor, not an actual employee, so back off, OSHA.) The only limitation to what you can host at Sunset Marquis is your imagination, and the limit on your corporate card, of course.
Our newly-renovated luxury West Hollywood hotel suites offer easily-accessible outlets and media hubs – you know, the kind where you don’t have to rearrange furniture or be a contortionist to access – when conducting meetings in your room either via phone or online. You can even project that awesome presentation to our in-room televisions. And our IT team is always just steps away to assist with any challenges. Most rooms also have desks with space for spreading out your files and electronics.
Equinox Health Club
When you’re ready to burn off the stress of the day or get those endorphins going first thing in the morning and a swim in either of our pools won’t do the trick, take advantage of the superior facilities located across the street at Equinox Health Club, a 35,000-square-foot exercise facility. Guests of Sunset Marquis have free access to the facility during normal gym hours: 5:30am – 10:30pm Monday – Thursday, until 9:30pm on Friday, and from 7:00am to 8:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Classes like Pilates and yoga can be arranged as well by contacting the facility directly at 310.289.1900.
Improptu Meeting Spaces
Like a well-seasoned jazz musician, Sunset Marquis has an affinity for the improvised. More than just a meeting space, the various nooks and crannies tucked along the winding paths throughout our 3.5-acre grounds can be a great source to inspire and conspire. Sunset Marquis offers peace, serenity and a clear head for writing, ruminating, or even forming unexpected partnerships. Feel free to roam, unwind, or if you’d like, request a site tour of our boutique Hollywood hotel. We’re always happy to show off to our guests.
It’s no exaggeration to say that over the course of 50 years of catering to the needs of “creative types,” there’s little our concierge staff has not seen or closed their eyes while cringing and turning away and hoping they can unsee. Concierge services at Sunset Marquis are an art form. Seriously, these people pride themselves on being able to secure virtually anything not prohibited by local, state, or federal law. And apparently there are places Homeland Security won’t let you fly a helicopter. But other than that, our team and our West Hollywood hotel’s network of restaurants and industry movers and shakers really do lend us the opportunity to get just about anything done.
