I love everything old. So when we stumbled on HHH I feel in love right away. But sadly when we finally got to stay there my husband fell ill. The staff in this situation where fantastic. They gave me maps to the nearest doctors clinic. When I asked them to change the sheets on the bed to stop x-infection they... More

Good hotel with spacious rooms. A bit of an old building but feels lovely and safe. No breakfast service but lovely and affordable café next door. Nice staff, happy to give you info+advice. They provide tours services.

We stayed here for 5 nights whilst visiting L.A. In terms of positives I'd say the staff are very friendly and helpful, the location is only 5 mins taxi to Hollywood boulevard, and you have 2 great cafes/restaurants on your doorstep in the form of the Italian 5 doors down and the small cafe directly next door. The majority of... More

We stayed for a whole week and had a good experience. Mike the front desk guy was pretty cool and very helpful. He Recommended some good places to eat/visit. Free parking and wifi was nice. The lot was secure with gate and cameras. Good location, close enough to everything we wanted to visit. Can't beat the price from Hotwire!!!

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
