Built in 1928 by architect Leland Bryant, the Sunset Tower opened as a luxury apartment house at just about the same time as the Chateau Marmont (seen in top-center photo as white, castle-type building). By the 1920s, West Hollywood's location between Beverly Hills and Hollywood and development of the Sunset Strip turned this central land mass into a popular housing area filled with Spanish Colonial Revival courtyard and Period Revival high-rise apartment complexes. Designed by leading architects such as Leland Bryant, Walter Davis, and Arthur & Nina Zwebell, the district was filled with unique properties that became the homes of stars, writers, and directors, who occupied them on a temporary basis while filming. Today, these buildings offer one of the most impressive collections of 1920s and 30s apartment buildings in Southern California.

Sunset Tower was one of the late additions to the West Hollywood skyline. It was well-appointed and fully furnished with fine antiques, maid service, security, and chauffeurs on staff. Its designer, Leland Bryant, was born in Michigan in 1891. He graduated from University of California, Berkeley, and became known in California for building designs ranging from Moderne to Period Revival. Bryant collaborated with Samuel Coine to create Four Gables Apartments, Beau Sejour, Savoy Plaza, Granville Apartments and La Fontaine.

Revisiting an authentic look and feel of the original "real deal" was a goal for Jeff Klein, an independent hotelier from New York who seeks to develop the boutique hotel into a product that holds a genuine experience for today's audience. Who would notice that the celebrity photos peppered throughout the property are Hollywood look-alikes?  Purchasing West Hollywood's aging Argyle Hotel, he's spent $40 million in the acquisition. The Sunset Tower, listed in the National Register of Historic Places and by the Historic Preservation Commission of West Hollywood, maintains the structural elements mostly. Sunset Tower  terraced pool area, which overlooks a steep downhill slope, is being reconfigured and rooms have received new drapes, bedding and bathroom upgrades.
