Los Angeles, CA is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Chateau Marmont. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.


The Chateau Marmont opened in 1929 as Los Angeles's newest, most elegant and exclusive apartment building. Due to the high cost of rent during the Depression, it was converted to a hotel. During World War II, it served as an air-raid shelter for residents in the surrounding area. The hotel is known for being both a long- and short-term residence for celebrities. 


Guests and hotel employees have reported windows opening on their own, furniture moving, the sounds of voices when no one's there. Strange noises in the night, feelings of being watched, even apparitions of floating heads and the sensation of ghosts getting into bed with you. On March 5, 1982, John Belushi was found dead at the age of 33 in Bungalow 3 of Chateau Marmont. He was pronounced dead of an overdose. Today, guests in Bungalow 3 have experienced the feeling of being watched, especially when looking in the bathroom mirror. One couple said their son stayed awake all night talking to someone he called "the funny man." Years later, the boy saw a picture of Belushi and said that he was the funny man who had been in Bungalow 3. 

One of the most famous rooms in the hotel is room 64. It is where Howard Hughes holed up for several months, spying on the pool from his balcony. 

The hotel's staff will tell you to avoid Room 79, for it's said to be the most haunted room of them all. Ghostly sightings and activities of moving furniture, visions of ghosts knocking on the door, even a floating head outside the window have been reported.

The chateau is not open to the public. You must have a room booked there to enter the premises.
