Continental Hyatt House

In the late 1960's and 1970's this hotel became the preferred accommodation in Los Angeles for travelling rock bands, due largely to its close proximity to popular clubs such as the "Whisky a Go Go". It was during this time that it was given the nickname "Riot House" on account of the wild antics carried out by band members there, most notably those of English rock groups such as "Led Zeppelin", "The Who" and the "Rolling Stones".

Little Richard lived in Room 319 for much of the 1980's and 1990's.

Jim Morrison once lived here until he was reportedly evicted by management for hanging out a window by his fingertips, dangling over the pavement.

Room 1015 bears the distinction of being where Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards dropped a TV out the window.
