Signage in LA

My name is Dave and I’m a signage geek. Yup, it’s true. Here are a few classics from a recent trip to Hollywood. Even tacky can be fun!

This place is a way cool hangout. A joint, if you will, which is the best kind of place to go.

If only Morrison were still here.

Oh wait...he is...over on a wall near the Roosevelt Hotel:

The Sunset Marquis

When my favorite hotel, The Chateau Marmont, is full, what’s a guy to do? Now I have the answer: The Sunset Marquis. My friends at the Chateau set me up here and I got the royal treatment. This little getaway retreat is only a block away from Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, but feels like the most restful place in the world. I’ll let the photos do the talking. One of my fave parts about it is that the staff gives excellent customer service; unlike the staff of the Hollywood Roosevelt, who treats you like they’re doing you a favor. That kind of snotty attitude doesn’t go very far with me.

And yes, they cater to rockstars!
