Kiwi Collection Insider Moira F. has recently returned from a fabulous visit to Los Angeles, the “City of Angels” and comes back with some info on a great little find that is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, namely the Sunset Marquis Hotel & Villas.
The Sunset Marquis Luxury Hotel is quite secluded compared to many in the area, including the famous Pink Beverly Hills Hotel, which is well known to be a Hollywood hot spot. This suited Moira fine as she preferred the peaceful relaxation afforded by the Sunset Marquis.
This hotel features Mediterranean-style villas that are spacious and modern, with tasteful decor and exceptional amenities. With some suites offering fireplaces, grand pianos, private terraces and more, the Sunset Marquis sounds like an exceptional romantic retreat inside one of the hippest U.S. cities.
