Let's be honest: living in a hotel sounds kind of amazing. You can order room service whenever you want, you never have to clean up after yourself, and you can jump on the beds without feeling guilty about wrecking the box spring you paid for yourself. Besides, Eloise and the twins from the Suite Life of Zach & Cody made it look so fun! Several famous actors, actresses, musicians and authors have spent extended periods of time living in hotels. These long-term hotel guests often created new songs, stories, and paintings while residing in hotels.

Who is the most famous person who lived in a hotel? Marilyn Monroe tops our list. Marilyn Monroe lived at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for two years. The hotel now rents a suite named for the blonde bombshell. John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston lived in the Hotel Pink Beach Club for almost a year.

Several celebrities lived in The Chelsea Hotel including Bob Dylan, Patti Smith and Janis Joplin. Howard Hughes also enjoyed living in hotels, including the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles, and the Desert Inn in Las Vegas. Oscar Wilde lived and died in L’Hotel in Paris.
