Booked 3 nights at the Historic Hollywood Hotel. Day 1: Traveling with 2 small children and the wife. Our flight was delayed getting into Burbank. Got to the hotel around 11:50pm and was told "since you didn't arrive by 7pm we gave your room away, and we don't have anything available". Was told we had to find a place for... More

We arrived in the late afternoon, got our room had a shower. pressure was ok, badroom small but who cares... the bed was comfy. We had something that looked like an airco but it didnt work very well. Our room faced... More

Location is a little shady and noisy too because it's on a busy Avenue. Beware there us NO air-conditioning, no window screens and no pool. Bathroom is tiny and hotel smells old but the room was clean. Hollywood's main tourist attractions are about 15 minutes away. You have to drive a mile or so to eat breakfast.

Stayed there for the first two nights of our honeymoon. Everything was clean, the rooms definitely had interesting entourage. Parking is very convenient comparing to other hotels in West Holly. The hotel is located in sketchy yet very safe area.

While the hotel boasts character at budget prices, it is not as clean as it could be and is certainly in need of a facelift. cannot help feeling that the photographer was extremely talented as none of the room as nearly as impressive in person. The rooms are tiny and the hallyways dated. The coffee making facility was good however.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights on our first time to the USA. Were a bit nervous coming into this hotel as did look like it was in a bit of a seedy area - but further down the road things perked up. I would definitely recommend using the public transport system if not driving. We found it great to get... More

As we land into LA and arrive into our historic hotel it all becomes clear that we really are in LaLa land. The hotel protrudes on the sidewalk like a monument from a old classic horror movie. It has depth and character and a haunting style de chique....as we walk into the aubergine reception area you can see that this... More

This review won't be as wordy as it could be, since I'm in a mobile device. However, I highly recommend this hotel. Typical business trips land me in Hilton or Hyatt hotels, which are impersonal and nowhere worth the cost. The Hollywood Historic Hotel is neither. From check in, which included awesome recommendations for great local, ethnic restaurants, to check... More

We stayed here for 4 nights Monday to Thursday on our tour of California for our honeymoon. It is not too bad a location and we booked very early to request a room on the top floor. Due to this we did not have any problems with noise from the street below, despite being at the front of the building... More
