I had the pleasure of staying at the Culver Hotel for two separate nights. It is a delightful slice of old Hollywood (near SONY Studios) but is a magnet for those in the business...not tourists. The beautiful lobby bar was filled with locals, all of whom have some relationship to the entertainment world. The staff is excellent and the food in the restaurant was light and flavorful. If you really want a true Hollywood vacation, it should start at the Culver Hotel.
