Welcome to the unofficial rock and roll sleeping hall of fame. Stay here and you just may sleep in the same room as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Moby, Pearl Jam, Joan Jett, and David Bowie. Rooms are colorful and noisy; all face the pool in the courtyard outside—a la “Melrose Place.” Visiting entertainers, bands, and regular guests gather around the heated outdoor pool and fire pits. Breakfast, parking, and Wi-Fi are free. The lively bar and restaurant is also a big draw for guests and locals, despite the dicey neighborhood. Funky, mid-century furnishings, walls of vintage records, and sexy corners and booths recall a hip L.A. vibe.
