The Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills has been known as a celebrity haunt for decades, where the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Laurence Olivier stayed for the night and dined in its fancy French restaurant.  https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2020-07-10/court-ordered-sale-viceroy-lhermitage-beverly-hills-hotel 

The hotel's former owner, Malaysian financier Jho Low, is accused of being the mastermind of a scheme to plunder billions. He's now a fugitive.

In L.A., Low was known for partying with Paris Hilton and pouring $100 million into “The Wolf of Wall Street.”  https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2020-07-10/court-ordered-sale-viceroy-lhermitage-beverly-hills-hotel 

Interest from potential buyers of the Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills has been “extraordinary,” said Matthew Bordwin of Keen-Summit Capital Partners.

“This is a unique, special property....We’ve had a significant number of qualified offers.”  https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2020-07-10/court-ordered-sale-viceroy-lhermitage-beverly-hills-hotel
