I had a layover in L.A. before flying outof the country. I stayed at the Hollywood Historic Hotel. I enjoyed the brief stay and the hotel. I had view of the Hollywood sign from my window. Loved the classic decor with the posters and pictures from earlier days. I had trouble with the directions given me from the rental car... More

We spent a three night stay in this lovely hotel. It is spacious and quite charming. The staff were helpful. It was easy to find by car with a good safe car park. Paramount Studios was just down the road and the Hop on Hop off tour bus was about 15 mins walk away.

This hotel is a good base for sight seeing! The outside looks much nicer than the interior which could do with a facelift - it's a shame because back in the day this hotel would have been beautiful and still could be - with a refurb! Our room was fine and clean but the road outside was very busy and... More

I was disappointed by the hotel and customer service during my stay. My room had smoke smells coming in. The bathtub had no plug. When I requested a plug, the manager said that they didn't offer plugs because customers would cause the bathtubs to flood. Other requests and questions to the staff were met with similar disregard towards meeting customer... More

Hello there, Thanks for taking the time to read my review. We chose the Hollywood Historic Hotel, from reviews on trip advisor and thought it reasonably priced and we weren't disappointed. There was also free parking at the back of the hotel, which was a bonus. We stayed there for two nights while in Los Angeles. This great old hotel... More

I came LA without an apartment to go to, and by chance happened upon Hollywood Historic Hotel as a place to stay for a few nights. I ended up renewing my reservation several times, and stayed for about a week, until I found a place to live. The staff was very pleasant, the room was exactly what I needed, and... More

We stayed in the Hollywood Historic as part of our honeymoon last month.The staff at this hotel were so nice. Two guys on the desk when we arrived, extremely helpful and friendly. Room was really big and cosy. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed - a nice shower, wifi, an iron, a hairdryer, a fridge... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and although it isn't luxury it is great value for money, its in a relatively convenient place with parking. Michael on the desk was fantastic, by far the most attentive receptionist I have ever come across! He helped us out with everything we needed and gave advice on the area. He gave us a... More

What a pleasant surprise this hotel is. It has loads of ambience, the friendliest and most helpful staff I have encountered from many hotel stays in the USA. Comfortable room with simple but good amenities, best hotel wifi (re speed and reliability) in my experience. Helpful staff (Michael in particular) were outstanding with genuine drive to make the stay as... More

Nice hotel. Built in the late 20s and a lot of period pieces and feel. We had a HUGE room that overlooked the Hollywood sign. The WiFi signal was a bit weak and the rooms didn't have their own phones. Otherwise the room was excellant and comfortable for our short stay. The staff were friendly and helpful when we needed...
