Celebrity Sightings

Chateau Marmont

This famed L.A. hotel has been a Hollywood hideaway ever since it opened in 1929. Today, it’s still your best bet for a celebrity sighting—especially at the see-and-be-seen Bar Marmont. The hotel is notorious as the place where celebs go to misbehave, hook up, and hunker down during a scandal. Members of Led Zeppelin once rode motorcycles through the lobby, John Belushi overdosed in one of the bungalows, Lindsay Lohan shacked up here after a drunk driving incident, Britney Spears was allegedly banned for smearing food on her face, and Johnny Depp once claimed he and Kate Moss had made love in just about every room. During award season, you’d have to try hard not to spot celebs; a star-studded Golden Globe after-party was hosted here this month.
