The Argyle's Name Change
West Hollywood's Argyle Hotel has changed its name back to the Sunset Towers Hotel.
Changing your name is par for the course in Hollywood, but the Argyle went retro with their new name. At one time, when the Argyle was the Sunset Tower Hotel, Howard Hughes, Bugsey Siegel, and John Wayne lived in these hallowed halls. The Duke was even rumored to have kept a cow on his balcony. In contrast, the Argyle is the place where Lindsay Lohan and the Simpson sisters allegedly feuded. No wonder the Argyle changed its name back to the Sunset.
This is all part of hotelier Jeff Klein's plan to bring "elegance" back to West Hollywood. Good luck, eh?
