An urban oasis nestled on a residential cul-de-sac just steps from Los Angeles’ celebrated Sunset Strip, the Sunset Marquis is the stuff dreams are made of. Conceived as the first all-suite hotel in the U.S., it has been a refuge for generations of rock ‘n’ rollers, actors, comedians, filmmakers, supermodels and moguls, a monument to luxury and casual elegance.
Sunset Marquis is a rock & roll legend. Located just off the Sunset Strip, it’s a secluded getaway on a side street yet close enough to all the action, which is why it’s become a home away from home for rock stars. Steven Tyler is pretty much synonymous with this place and there are always some rock dudes walking around that I know are famous but I just don’t know their names. The fab Cavatina restaurant with its pretty outdoor patio and laidback vibe is where celebs eat in privacy while enjoying one of the most romantic spots in LA.
Dinner done and set on a last hurrah? Head for the pretty glamour of Perch in Downtown and its twinkly outdoor terrace with superb city views. Or go rock and roll at the luxurious and legendary Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood, designed with Mediterranean villas in mind. A music-industry favorite, it should come as no surprise to bump into Courtney Love or John Mayer in its tiny BAR 1200.
While this West Hollywood hideaway is known mostly as a mecca for big names in the music biz, it’s also a favorite among movie movers and shakers — think George Clooney, Pedro Almódovar and Michael Fassbender. It’s a rock & roll playground for sure, but the tucked-away tropical setting, soothing spa and pared down rooms provide just the kind of vibe needed to help you keep calm and carry on during Awards Season.
If you really want to impress your new Tinder date, consider this upscale, garden-like oasis inside the Sunset Marquis hotel. The airy, string-lit patio sets the tone for a romantic evening under the stars with a farm-to-table inspired menu showcasing California’s freshest produce and ingredients. With menu highlights like the creamy burrata, beef tenderloin and seared scallops, and an average entree price of $38, you can expect a steep bill but a meal that will leave a lasting impression.
