Places to Visit »Sunset Tower

sunset towersThe Sunset Tower is an old Hollywood landmark that has housed Elizabeth Taylor, Bugsy Siegel, Marilyn Monroe and Howard Hughes. It's storied and romantic history made it a perfect spot for my sister to celebrate her engagement to her soon-to-be hubby. I drooled over her photos of balcony taken French press breakfasts under blue California skies.

The building itself, which was built in 1921 by Leland A Bryant, is an art deco marvel, once one of the most trendy and glamorous places in town. It fell into disrepair in the 70s and 80s until it was saved from destruction and turned into the St James Club; then it became the Argyle before reclaiming its original name and roots as Sunset Tower.

The spa looks heavenly and I'd do just about anything to be lounging in a cabana by their pool on Valentine's Day.
