This recent item in Page Six about a recent debaucherous party at the The Sunset Tower had us a bit concerned. And it's not because we are distraught over the caliber of women that How I Met Your Mother cutie Jason Segel is dating--although it does worry us quite a bit. No, what has our hotel geek radar blipping is that the Sunset Tower is looking a lot like another Hollywood hotel of lore--The Hollywood Roosevelt.

Back in 2005 the Hollywood Roosevelt was out of control with its celebrity guests and their parties. The hotel was actually the ultimate haven for A-list celebs who were still denying they had a substance abuse problem.

Thankfully, Thompson Hotels grabbed a copy of the Big Blue Book and began rehabbing its image as a "Celebs-Only" party hotel, making the place more hotel guest-friendly. But will Sunset Tower have to do the same thing? Here's what went down at Segel's "I Love You Man" premiere party:

Comic Jason Segel, who graces the cover of Vanity Fair this month,brought a hot chick to the premiere party of "I Love You, Man" at the Sunset Tower Hotel Tuesday night. Alas, when Segel turned his back, the woman "passed out by the pool," a spy said. "Paramedics had to carry her out on a stretcher past Andy Samberg, Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones everyone."

Meanwhile, the Governator and his wife were having dinner in the hotel's restaurant.

Now, we've often mocked Jennifer Aniston's addictive attitude towards the Sunset Hotel but we always knew she liked the spot for its low-key style. However with the Vanity Fair Oscar party under its belt and now this incident, we're not so sure the hotel is flying under the radar anymore. Fortunately, its hotel guests seem pretty happy with the experience, something that the Roosevelt couldn't quite get a hang of in its early days.
