The history

A retired couple had this unit custom-designed when the 24-unit condo tower was added above the 1927-built hotel in 1999. Now that the wife has passed away, the husband is planning to downsize. The home was first listed for sale late last year, but it didn’t immediately sell and is now back on the market.

Big selling point

Residents enjoy all of the hotel’s amenities, including spa treatments, room service and valet parking. Among the Hollywood royalty spotted here in the past are Colin Farrell, Clint Eastwood, Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Garner, Adam Brody and Octavia Spencer.

Possible deal breaker

The finishes include dark mahogany and pinkish stone, which isn’t to everyone’s taste. That said, most people with $8 million to spend probably have a bit extra in store for a major redesign of whatever property they purchase.
