Spanish Colonial Revival style apartment building designed by Edward B. Rust in 1926. It has been the home of many notables including William Randolph Hearst, Marion Davies and Clara Bow. It is rumored that Judy Garland and Charlie Chaplin also lived here for a time. Architect Julia Morgan, designer of the Herald-Examiner Building and Hearst Castle in San Simeon designed the apartments for Hearst and Davies in the building.

M2A Architect's restoration of the residential hotel included the rehabilitation or re-creation of original light fixtures, hardware, carpets, awnings and ornamental iron work; concealed seismic work, and new fire/life safety systems. The project has been recognized with awards from the California Preservation Foundation, Los Angeles Conservancy and City of Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission.

Designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 1986, the building is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Located at 4121 Wilshire Boulevard in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
