This is a lovely hotel at a great price and I would definitely stay here again. It's very unique and our room on the 3rd floor had an amazing view of the Hollywood sign which I could have stared at all day! It had all the facilities in good working condition and the room was very clean. Michael on reception... More

I think the rooms need redecoration. I don't know but I kinda didn't like this hotel maybe Its because I dont like to stay in historical places. I read some of those ghost things and I really got freaked out:) The neighborhood is really good though. But If you plan to walk, This is not the best place. It is... More

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights while visiting Los Angeles for a relaxed vacation. The check in was quick and painless the room had been prepaid for through Hotwire. The atmosphere at the hotel is definitely reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood. The room was clean and had the basic amenities. A fridge, blow dryer, toiletries and... More

Taking a side trip from Palm Springs to LA, we picked the Hollywood Historic Hotel because of its easy access off the freeway. What we weren’t expecting was the grand foyer complete with red velvet ropes, and the old world charm of this lovely hotel and its halls filled with old Hollywood glam photos. Our room was very spacious and... More

I give it 3 stars because it is not high quality...old building, still needs some room amenities like counter updated and replaced most awesomely, it is better priced than many LA hotels and it is not near the crazy of Hollywood...if you want that, stay elsewhere.. no amenities so be prepared...but has a mini fridge and free parking...many other LA...

I thought this hotel was beautifully decorated, with many throw backs to the old days in Hollywood. It's very nice to be greeted by a mini red carpet as you come into the hotel as well. We had a lovely view of the Hollywood sign from our bedroom and directly opposite the window was a photograph showing what the view... More

Found this on on hotels.com and got a decent rate for 2 rooms with queens. Knew exactly what to expect after reading reviews and we loved it! There is no place like this that we have stayed in. It is remodelled, clean, quiet (we had a room on the back, our daughter had a room on the front with a... More

The first thing i thought when I saw it from the airport shuttle was that it is so beautiful , when I step in it just smells like urine everywhere. The room and the entire house smells like urine and mold. The room we got, a king size, was good in size but the sheets weren't changed and there was... More

If you're looking for a fun boutique hotel that's full of history and really nice people, this is the place. There's a great little coffee shop right next door and a two great restaurants on the other corner, with plenty more within walking distance. The old hotel has lots of charm, is very reasonably priced and in a great location.... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel one night before taking our Hollywood tour and heading out of town. We found this to be a great place! Granted, this is a renovated historic building, so you are naive if you are expecting the room to be huge. But the room is adequate. You have a bathroom, closet, desk, and... More
