If discretion, location and luxury is what a rock star needs, they usually find it at the Chateau Marmont. This is where Jim Morrison lived for a while and one drunken night here on the roof was depicted in the movie "The Doors". The bungalows away from the main building are favored for privacy and John Belushi died in one in 1982.
Château Marmont - After its debut as an apartment complex, Chateau Marmont converted to a hotel during the Great Depression and became a favored haunt for Hollywood stars intent on misbehaving. Jim Morrison injured his back while attempting to swing into his room from the roof on a drainpipe, and more recently, Britney Spears was banned in 2007 for smearing food on her face in the restaurant. Its also where John Belushi died of a drug overdose in 1982.
