Suite Treats

Tinseltown's Chicest Hotels Host a Bevy of Golden Globe Gifting Lounges

Chateau Marmont

Gifting suites have popped up all over Los Angeles this week in some of the town’s chicest hotels. Their singular purpose? To woo celebrities, and the holy grail of guests, Golden Globe presenters and nominees. The opulent SLS Hotel is in on the act, so too the glittery London West Hollywood. Even the Chateau Marmont, aka the hotel that plays a starring role in Sofia Coppola’s latest movie, Somewhere, will have a lounge tucked away in one of its hipster-chic rooms. But if you’re a nominee in the mood for one stop shopping, the granddaddy of them all, the Four Seasons Beverly Hills, is your best bet. Last count there were four separate “lounges” set up to pamper VIP guests, and send them home with a thing or two to commemorate their visit. Bottle of bubbly anyone? We’ll take two.
