"Everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end," so said Brian Flanagan in the greatest movie of all time. And for Jennifer Aniston, if this recent gossip report is to be believed, her love affair with the Sunset Tower Hotel has come to a horrific conclusion.
The Daily Mail reports that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie not only spent a night at Jen's fave Hollywood hotel, but they slept in the same room as hers! Well, the same room that she always stays in. Not like, the same room at the same time.
The star couple slipped unnoticed into the glamorous Sunset Tower hotel in Hollywood on Tuesday night and checked into suite 1502 - the same room where Brad's ex-wife Jennifer likes to stay.
Even more scandalous is that Angelina specifically requested this room because she knew that Jen stays in it all the time.
On August 27, Angelina made a reservation for suite 1502, shelling out $2500 for the penthouse room with a large patio that wraps around much of the building. Later in the afternoon, the couple arrived and were escorted to the service entrance and whisked up to the penthouse - not leaving their room until 11am on Wednesday morning. They even shared an intimate dinner from room service on the penthouse balcony, with Los Angeles sprawled out below them.

We've always wanted hotelier Jeff Klein to open more hotels. After all, his Sunset Tower Hotel is one of the best hotels in LA, loved by celebs like Jennifer Aniston. Not to mention, with his City Club Hotel in New York City, he was a firm believer in offering free Wifi to his guests at a time when most hotels were still sending folks down to the business center to get online. But we're not quite sure about his latest acquisition.
Curbed LA reports that Klein has recently purchased a "a clothing-optional gay motel" in West Hollywood that's more known for being a drug haven. Eeek. The place is also adjacent, ironically, to a rehab facility called Klean. (Yes, that is correct.) But while Klein plans to keep the clothing optional aspect of the inn, he has now enforced a "zero tolerance" drug policy. Thank god.
However, he still has his work cut out for him. Check out this recent review of the inn on TripAdvisor reviews:

This may look like a quiet, tranquil bench on the property at The Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood but it's actually played a role in rock and roll history.
Cyndi Lauper has often visited this bench while staying at the hotel and considers this spot one of her fave places to write music. Want proof? If you visit Sunset Marquis' website, they have a picture of Cyndi lounging on the bench. Told ya! But, this being THE hotel for rock stars, having musicians around the property is considered just a normal day. Everyone from Ozzy Osbourne to Joan Jett, John Lennon and Steven Tyler have all called the Marquis their home away from home at one point.
Fancy yourself a rock star? Rates at the Sunset Marquis start at $249 a night.

How's this for a yoga studio?
Los Angeles is a mecca for the yoga community, so it's no wonder there’s a heaping sun salutation's worth of glamorous hotels available for nomad yogis. Below, we've tracked down 5 of the hippest, most yoga-friendly hotels in LA for your next visit. Now, take a big breath, and let's begin!
Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica, CA (pictured): How about an hour of yoga amidst lapping waves on the warm Santa Monica sand? Shutters offers yoga on the beach every Thursday morning at 8am, free to hotel guests. To participate, simply reserve your spot with the concierge desk by 6pm the evening prior. The next morning, meet in front of the hotel and saunter down to the sandy beach, stopping just in front of the water to embark on an hour of stretchy, sandy serenity.

The forever cool Sunset Marquis Hotel, tucked away beneath Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, has long been a retreat for actors and rock stars alike but we were thrilled to see that the hotel thinks kids rock too, thanks to their Kids Rock at Sunset Marquis kids packs.
Once you check-in to the hotel with your little one, there will be a black or pink nylon backpack waiting for them with a nametag attached. Inside, there's a black or pink t-shirt that says Kids Rock (sizes can be exchanged at the concierge desk), crayons, an "all-access" key and the Sunset Marquis Kids Passport which kids can color in, fill out a Hollywood-themed Mad Lib and also use for a scavenger hunt on the property. Totally cool.
Rates at the Sunset Marquis start at $395 next weekend for a deluxe suite with a king bed that also includes a separate seating area. Kids under the age of 12 stay free with parents if using existing beds in room. Be sure to tell the hotel before you arrive just who your little rock star-in-training is before you arrive.
We love luxury hotels but we can't always afford to stay in them. Thankfully, hotels these days are way more than just rooms for paying hotel guests. Between visiting the lobbies, bars, restaurants, and spas inside these upper echelon hotels, it's practically as good as staying the night. Here's our latest installment of how to quench your champagne tastes on a Coca-Cola budget with a Hotel Day Trip.
We've often ragged on Jennifer Aniston for her boring hotel habits--i.e. always hanging out at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood but during a trip there the other week, we kinda understood why she does it.
The hotel's Terrace restaurant opens out to the small but stylish pool (check out the monogrammed towels) and on a picturesque day like this one, popping in here for breakfast is a great start to your day in LA. But of course, it's pricey fare with granola and pancakes at $16, eggs at $14 and a simple bagel with cream cheese over $10. (Add smoked salmon and it's $18.)
Still, it's an easy way to enjoy the simple beauty of Sunset Tower without having to shell out at least $300 for a room. Jennifer Aniston, we're not saying you should go here all the time when you're in town, but we understand.
Right now, we're rubbing our eyes, double-checking our coffee order and studying our calendars to make sure it's not Opposite Day because we've just stumbled upon some badass news.
Edition wanted permission to increase to 190 hotel rooms, include a 5,000 square-foot “Crazy Box” nightclub adjacent to the subterranean parking garage and add eight feet to the building’s height for a 3,100 square-foot bar area adjacent to the rooftop pool. The Commission was fine with those changes.

Cleaning up might be easier with La Lohan gone.
Lindsay Lohan will never step foot in The Standard Hotel again ... or at least for the foreseeable future. She's telling friends the hotel is a curse, causing her nothing but heartache ... and this week's drink-throwing incident was the last straw.
Congrats Standard! Lindsay Lohan has never turned down anything in her life. How does it feel to be the first one on her blacklist? Ah but don't worry, you still have Amanda Bynes.

The girl in the box is actually NOT a hot mess.
The Standard Hotel on Sunset in West Hollywood has long been a famous spot for pretty much everything else aside from its hotel rooms thanks to its chicquarium, adult Sunday brunches and rotating art installations. And now this month, it's the hotel's secret club, Smoke and Mirrors, that's making the news.
For starters actress Amanda Bynes has been banned from the hotel after she was last spotted leaving the club drunk, just moments before she swiped a cop car and was arrested for drunk driving.
And today we learn that our old favorite hot mess, Lindsay Lohan has been accused of attacking a woman at the club for talking to a male friend of Lohan's. Lindsanity is denying the allegations, saying she was home all night but now a hotel employee is telling cops that he saw Lohan there. TMZ reports:

We may not be the biggest fans of Kim Kardashian these days but we can't believe she actually got flour-bombed at a hotel in West Hollywood last night!
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says deputies were called to the unidentified hotel on North San Vicente Boulevard shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday.
Deputy Peter Gomez says the woman who allegedly threw the powder was detained by hotel security and later released at the scene. And in true Kardashian work ethic, Kim went upstairs to a hotel room, removed the powder from her and clothing and returned to the event.
The oft-repeated saying in Hollywood is "If get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont but if you're Lindsay Lohan, a troubled actress whose every move is watched by tabloids, we'd say the iconic hotel tucked away above Sunset is the last place she should be right now.
About six years ago, Lohan racked up at $500,000 bill at the hotel while living at the hotel. Here's what she told Vanity Fair about the place back then:
"It's like a house, it's so weird. I'm like, 'This is my den.' Like, three people were lying on the second floor and walking up to my staircase." She catches herself and lets out a goofy laugh, "My Staircase!"
However, this time, Lohan won't have to worry about paying a hefty hotel bill. RadarOnline.com reports that an "artist friend" has loaned her his room while she finds a new place to live. But she will have to worry about nightlife temptations.
