Nothing is more iconic than this art deco hotel on the Sunset Strip. Designed in 1929, originally as an apartment block, has housed the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra. During the 1950's The Sunset Tower Hotel was as much a landmark than the Hollywood sign itself. During the 1980's it was saved from demolition and was turned into a luxury hotel and preserves many of the original art deco features. It boasts panoramic views of the city from it's stunning rooftop pool, terrace bar and cafe. If you have the cash to splash and want to enjoy some of Hollywoods legendary history, get your people to talk with their people and make a reservation.
