Chateau Marmont Is Getting Ready for the Spotlight

Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere is her latest hotel-based drama and is rumored to do for Chateau Marmont what Lost in Translation did for the Park Hyatt Tokyo. Not that the Chateau Marmont needs the help—it has regularly made the gossip columns since the days of Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe. And as Sofia told the New York Times about the Andre Balazs hotel, “When I started writing my script I thought of this bad-boy character, and thought, ‘Of course he has to live at the Chateau.’ ” We can’t wait to see the movie, which opens on December 22.
