The Sky Was the Limit

by Kim Lavine

I checked into the Andaz Hotel on Sunset and looked out from the rooftop pool over the        Hollywood hills. 

The Andaz Hotel on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood, CA

They had lost my reservation, it was late so they ‘comped’ me an upgrade to a        suite where Robert Plant reportedly stayed during the heyday of Led Zeppelin, with pictures of        them riding in on motorcycles adorning the walls.

Looking down Sunset Boulevard at night from        the rooftop pool, with Tom Petty singing “the future was wide open” in the background, I was        totally swept away by Hollywood glamour.
