Sunset Marquis, West Hollywood

Want to give your loved one a real rock star moment? Book them a stay at West Hollywood’s ultimate getaway, the Sunset Marquis. The legendary property — which has hosted everyone from Bob Marley to Bruce Springsteen — recently underwent a $30 million expansion to celebrate its Golden Jubilee. Luminaries love the place for its relative seclusion (its villas are spread across four acres), not to mention its iconic perks: a full-service subterranean recording studio and the intimate BAR 1200, where impromptu jam sessions by musicians like Aerosmith are a regular occurrence. The resort’s Rock Then Roll package even includes a take-home guitar, as well as Sunset Strip VIP passes. $1,150 and up.
