Air conditioning so noisy we had to turn it off. Opened window but the noise of the traffic and other guests even worse. I would not recommend staying in this area of LA either as it is very run down and unsafe. On a positive note the staff were very helpful.

We stayed here for the first few nights of our honeymoon. While this is not a five star establishment, they offered a clean room close to all the Hollywood sites. The staff were super friendly & helpful. The Internet was free & fast (unlike some other more expensive places we have stayed). If you want to save a few dollars... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
