Mid 1980s – Transforming the Sunset Marquis and West Hollywood

During the mid-1980’s, the company, despite its considerable focus on the growth of the ELIC portfolio, continued to invest in its core assets.  Under Mark Rosenthal’s watchful eye, the Sunset Marquis underwent a transition from a limited-service accommodation to a full-service hotel. Renovations included a remodel of all the rooms in the main buildings and the addition of a bar and restaurant to the property.  During that decade, Deborah Rosenthal laid the groundwork for the future expansion of this hotel through her leadership role and community participation in the founding of the City of West Hollywood.
