San Vicente Inn, a cluster of century-old historic bungalows, known as a haven for nudists and drug users, in West Hollywood, Calif., will be converted into a boutique hotel.

Plans call for an extensive rehab to create 33 guest rooms. Most (23) of the rooms would be in a new building behind an old Victorian post office which would become a lounge area for guests.

Three bungalows that now make up the bulk of the inn will be remodeled for new uses: a high-end restaurant; a bar and lounge, restrooms, and cabana; and one will be reconfigured into three suites. A two-story multipurpose structure for yoga classes or events, a new reception area, and another two-story structure with six or seven suites will be constructed.
