Clean and comfortable I booked this hotel twice within a two week period. First room was rear facing and quite second time it was Melrose facing and quite noise due to traffic. It's clean and very small but if you plan on visiting Hollywood and surrounding its very conveniently located.

The staff were really friendly and the hotel was in a good location. We had a really nice room, I had asked last minute if we could have a room with a view of the Hollywood sign which we were given. Room was nice and big and we had everything we needed. Highly recommended this hotel as it is great... More

We stayed at Hollywood Historic Hotel for 2 nights. I was actually attracted by the little cozy lobby :) Location-wise it's not very "tourist-friendly" as it's quite far from where we got off the bus. Also, unless you go to the hollywood area which could be connected by the DASH bus, commuting to other areas is not particular convenient and... More

When I checked in, the receptionist told me that they will reserve $100 for incidental fees on my credit card but it will go away when I check out. Anyway, the $100 charge from Historic Hollywood Hotel appeared on my credit card. I called the hotel a week later and talked to the receptionist and he assured me that give... More

This hotel is clean, well-priced and has some character. I had a front facing room, which in peak hour traffic is slightly noisy, but the reward is a great view of Hollywood proper. It is a bit of a hike to HWBVD, but Paramount Pictures is on your doorstep. We tried Togo to Nue Studio, but it was closed, so... More

Great location to attend the Rosebowl in Pasadena and see the Hollywood sites. Historic hotel in need of updating but love the charm! Don't be put off by the neighborhood. It's a little run down but people won't bother you if you don't bother them. Dining place in hotel but didn't try it. 2 Markets very close for convenience items.... More

This hotel is in a prime location for the film studios and only two blocks from the hop on bus which is a great way to get around the main attractions. Only drawback is that there is no restaurant but the staff are very helpful in recommending eateries in the area which were inexpensive. The hotel has is currently in... More
