Sunset 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.
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.

Hotel Crillon le Brave calls itself a "village hotel." The many buildings which make
up the hotel date back to the 17th and 18th centuries although the village traces its
history to the Roman era two thousand years ago. Like in many Provencal hill villages,
each new generation constructed its homes on the ruins of its ancestors so that the
buildings that exist today have foundations and cellars that date back hundreds of years.
Most of the main eight buildings that make up the hotel today were once family dwellings
but some had other uses as well. In most cases, the hotel has kept the names of the
previous inhabitants to help retain its connection to the village, its people, and its historic roots.
