Abstract:
An apartment house-turned-hotel, Chateau Marmont is perched above the Sunset Strip like a fairytale castle. The Chateau has welcomed the most iconic and iconoclastic personalities in film, music, and media. And much of what's happened inside the Chateau's walls has eluded the public eye-- until now. Levy recounts the wild revelries and scandalous liaisons, the creative breakthroughs and marital breakdowns, the births and deaths that the Chateau has been a party to. The result is a glittering tribute to Hollywood as seen from inside the walls of its most hallowed hotel.
