Did You Know? Sunset Marquis Hotel and Villas


By: Five Star Alliance

Sunset MarquisSunset Marquis Hotel and Villas was the brainchild of real estate developer George Rosenthal. After turning down Jimmy Hoffa's offer of a loan to help build a Playboy Club and hotel in Los Angeles, Rosenthal found local financing and started construction in 1961. He was able to build the club (and office building that housed it), but not the hotel. So he bought a property down the street at 1200 Alta Loma Drive. 

Sunset Marquis

He called the place The Sunset Marquis after his newly born son Markey, and for the past 50 years, it has been the home away from home for actors, comedians, writers, artists, filmmakers, fashion designers, supermodels, restaurateurs, billionaire entrepreneurs, and rock stars.
