Chateau Marmont

The hotel was built in 1927 and was modeled loosely after the Ch�teau d'Amboise in France's Loire Valley. The Chateau Marmont was designed and constructed to be earthquake proof, and survived major earthquakes in 1933, 1953, 1971, 1987 and 1994 without sustaining any major structural damage. Nine Spanish cottages were built next to the hotel in the 1930s and were acquired by the hotel in the 1940s. Two of the four bungalows were designed by Craig Ellwood in 1956, after he completed Case Study Houses. These are like miniature case study houses.
