Hotel Ziggy replaces the Grafton on Sunset Strip

The Grafton Hotel at 8462 Sunset Blvd. is now the home of Hotel Ziggy.

Ziggy’s inspiration is rock ‘n’ roll. The hotel features a bar lined with hundreds of vinyl albums, a concert venue called “Backbeat,” and a collection of framed legal documents highlighting decades of lawsuits between musicians, producers and streamers.

Ziggy will also feature what they’re calling a Shred Shed — a space with electric and acoustic guitars, amps, records, and record players for guests to play with.

“We created Ziggy to provoke stimulating and meaningful conversations with the intent to spark curiosity and playfully challenge perspectives. What better location than the Sunset Strip to celebrate the rebellious spirit of norm-breaking musicians who have changed how we live?” said Jon Bortz, Chief Hotel Imagineer at Pebblebrook Hotels. “Hotel Ziggy is located right down the street from the former sites of two world-famous music destinations: Tower Records and House of Blues. As these and other icons are now gone, a legacy here needs to be remembered. We push boundaries with our hotels, and we certainly did that with Ziggy.”

Ziggy is now taking reservations. Rooms start at $299 per night.

Sounds appropriate. This was where I lived when I moved here in 1971, when it was still the Park Sunset. Eddie Cochran’s manager lived there in the fifties and Bo Diddley used to stay there when he was in L.A.

As in “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars”? Hopefully this transformation will provide a dose of originality to the Strip.

This routine, from Ham on down, could use a payoff line. Or a headline. That could be a favorite line of mine from Sartre’s No Exit: “Hell is other people.”
