Uh, dude owns the trashy Chateau Marmont AND is friends with the Mercers.

I can't think of anything that would sink a reputation lower aside from that combo.

Soviet sleeper agent?
He's already the Mercers' idiot.

Human trafficking?
Pedophilia?
He already owns the Chateau Marmont.

Bioterrorism?
Financing evil?
Friends with Mercers.

Really weird drugs?
Really dangerous or rare drugs?
Owns Chateau Marmont.

You can go back and forth between "Friends with Mercers" and "owns Chateau Marmont" and make a fairly plausible and compelling case for most of the conspiracy theories, true or not, that arose in the past half decade.

Chateau Marmont has a reputation for being where Lindsey Lohan would hang out to score drugs. Respectable drug addicts avoid that place. TOO MANY WEIRDOS!

The Mercers have nothing to do with the Mercer Hotel. That's the name of the street it's located on.

As for the Chateau Marmont, I'm less interested in who's boycotting it than who's not.

So this is how he became Lord Commander of the Knightswatch.  Interesting...

Huh...I thought they were turning that into a Guardians of the Galaxy ride.

What would Sandman Slim feel about this?

Does Satan still have a suite?

Oh, this explains SO MUCH.

I was planning some travel to LA for this summer that would include a little time for the wife and me to get some away-time.  I figured after a year+ of COVID, I'd splurge on a bit more luxury-level hotel for the week.  I was surprised to see Chateau Marmont suites coming up in my search.

I know it isn't the most exclusive hotel in LA, but generally it has had enough cachet and celeb-frequency that it wasn't available for schlubs looking for a Hollywood vacation...

Skid Row has better drugs back in the 80s

Now that Sebastian & co do the local fair circuit not so much.

Remember to raise your pinky finger when you drink your morning coffee.

This will be more of a "morning whiskey sour" kind of trip, but thanks for your concern.

My point was only that while most LA hotels are suffering through COVID (and thus have some very attractive pricing going on right now), I was surprised to see that Chateau Marmont hadn't so much cut their rates as slashed them to the point that they're now in a whole different price segment.  Their advertised rack rate for one of their cottages is like 1/3 of what I remember it being previously.
