These unique boutique hotels have provided the Rich and Famous-for decades-with seclusion and relaxation in exclusive, luxurious settings. The stars of Hollywood's Golden Era along with today's hottest stars have partied and vacationed here-from Joan Crawford and Clark Gable to Miley Cyrus and Queen Latifah.  Legendary celebrities have used the inns for honeymoon hideaways or celebrated weddings, including Frank Sinatra.
