“Excellent Staff, Comfortable Digs, Pleasant Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We visited L.A recently. And we decided to stay close to Hollywood and chose this hotel. This is a great gem. It is close (walking distance) from the Hollywood Bowl and the Kodak theater. Close to 101 freeway on ramp.

The room was comfortable. It was on par with other similarly priced hotels (Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton etc.).

But the best part of the hotel was their friendly staff.
Staff. Staff. Staff.
1. We came in around Noon on a Friday. The receptionist in the front desk realized that we wanted to get to work (with laptops), but the rooms are not ready. She right away gave us wifi passwords and guided us to the fourth floor lobby which was silent and conducive to working. So even though we did not have a room, we could do what we wanted.

2. The receptionist (a different one now) on Friday evening took interest in our dinner plans and recommended an Italian restaurant with live piano music. And that turned out to be a great evening.

3. And just overall pleasant and courteous people. Including the valet who picked up and brought back our car.

The hotel itself was good. But we we were not there for the pool or breakfast. Those are not important for us. But printing boarding passes was (and we could do that).

Room Tip: 1. When you need help, recommendations... ask the receptionist.

Great Location, The breakfast was ok , The service staff helpfu. I booked the hotel for a day earlier than I was supposed to arrive. I arrived the next day , though the hotel alloted me a room, I did not get a refund. The hotel authorities claimed that the hotel was fully booked , but still did not refund the room which they claimed that was not alloted to anyone.

The hotel is located at a walking distance from the walk of fame a big plus.
also very close to universal studios.
has eating joints like subway, star bucks right accross the road.
The rooms are standard holidayinn but the hotel needs a little make over.

i could hear the traffic in my room, a big minus for me.

the concierge is very helpful with taxis and stuff.
i would stay again. though a little pricy

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Hollywood Hotel Walk of Fame during Father's Day Weekend, 2013. Just up the street (walking distance) is the Hollywood Bowl, and the weekend we were there was the Jazz Festival. So, the hotel and streets were very crowded. That did not detract in any way from our stay. The Hotel is very close to the Walk of Fame and The Chinese Theater (and Jimmy Kimmel). We stayed on the 7th Floor in a newly renovated room. I would recommend asking for one of the newly renovated rooms even though you have to take two different elevators to get there (this will not be a hassle unless you have difficulty walking).

The breakfast was okay, nothing great. What you would expect from this class of hotel. The pool is clean but small and a little chilly.

The reason I gave this hotel 5 stars instead of the 4 it probably deserves (it is a Holiday Inn Express not the Ritz, after all) is because of the Service. Omar was FANTASTIC. He should run customer service for ALL of the IHG Family Hotels, not just this Holiday Inn Express. I mean, the dude is fantastic. I hope the owner gives him a big, fat bonus (or maybe Omar is the owner? If not, he should be). He knew everything and gave us (me, my wife and our two pre-teen girls) great advice the entire time we were there on what to see and do. Omar is a great, friendly, KNOWLEDGEABLE, manager. He knows how to make guests feel like they are truly guests, not just customers. IHG, you better be listening. If you do not watch it, this guy will be running Wyndham/Marriott/Hilton soon. Don't let him get away. I will be trying another Holiday Inn Express (which is not usually my choice in hotels) on my next trip just because of Omar.

Room Tip: Get a newly renovated room (as of June 2013) on the 7th floor

Handily located 5-8 min walk to the walk of fame. Free WiFi and breakfast included a real bonus. Rooms clean, well maintained and bed very comfortable. We stayed on the 8th floor back from the main road which cut down the street noise. Was a bit of a trek to get there though - 2 lifts and walk down the corridor to transfer; with bags was a bit of a pain. Reception staff friendly and have good knowledge of local attractions. Bags stored for us on checkout so we could have another day to explore which was much appreciated. Arranged for private transfer to LAX.
