Jeff Zarrinnam, hotel director of Hollywood Hotel, is one of Hollywood’s foremost experts on the destination, its history and one of the most active and visionary leaders in the area. Jeff was born in Hollywood at Kaiser Permanente Hospital more than 50 years ago and makes his home in Hollywood. Jeff also works in Hollywood, is the President and CEO of Hollywood-based Zarco Hotels Inc., which owns the Hollywood Hotel, of which he is the hotel director, and is on the steering committee or board of at least eight Hollywood civic organizations.

Jeff’s fascination with Hollywood is as deep as his roots in the community. The re-established Hollywood Hotel on Vermont Avenue was built in 196 and purchased by Zarco, Inc. in 1964. Jeff has amassed many original items from the hotel’s first location on Hollywood Boulevard. In addition to launching an aggressive renovation of Hollywood Hotel, Jeff is restoring the 31- suite Chateau Celeste, an upscale boutique hotel directly across the street from Hollywood Hotel, which was originally built in 1927. The various sections within this City Guide include “Jeff’s Best Secrets,” places that Jeff, as the ultimate Hollywood insider, recommends. Enjoy!
