I often visit the LA area for both business and pleasure. Elaine's B&B is perfectly located, quiet, friendly and comfortable. Breakfast consists of all my favorite things, great coffee, fresh berries, baked goods and granola. Thanks Elaine, I'm so lucky to have found you.

Our first visit to Hollywood was greatly enhanced by our stay with Elaine who was generous, unassuming and thoroughly hospitable. Our room was spacious with an extensive balcony overlooking the garden and the hills in the distance. The enormous Palms that characterise the famous location are also in view. Recommended for an ideally situated location that is both welcoming and... More

It's wonderful to hear that we enhanced your stay, Niall! We're so lucky to have such a wonderful setting, and it's made all the better by great customers like yourself. We've actually adopted a new dog called 'Bijou' who I'm sure you'd love. Come back and see us if you're ever stateside again -- it was so great spending time... More

Just across the street from Dresden's, and in a fantastic location between Hollywood Blvd and Sunset Blvd. All rooms are clean and come with ensuite bathrooms. TV and free wifi. Fantastic breakfasts! Never met Elaine, but her friend Jerri who was taking care of everything was warm and kind and very helpful. Definitely a great place to come back to.

Great place. Comfortable & homely. Nothing is too much trouble for Elaine. Room (blue) was quiet, good size with adjoining bath & shower. I need a quiet room as a light sleeper & will ask for that one next year. Breakfasts were well presented & good variety. She also washed a couple of tops for me as a favour. Good... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
