Time moves on, but when we returned to the Highland Gardens Hotel in Hollywood after a few years, it was just like coming home. They had moved the reception to the other side of the foyer it seemed, but apart from that everything was just as it had always been. There were still the photos behind reception of some of the stars who have made the hotel their temporary home over the years, including the late great Janis Joplin. Was it her ghost knocking on the room to our Executive Suite the night we arrived, welcoming us back? We hope so. It does not matter that our suite could have done with a lick of paint in places. From a cleanliness point of view the accommodation was spotless and we were given clean towels every day. The suite comprised of a bedroom with two queen sized beds, a lounge and hallway, toilet/bathroom and a kitchen, with fridge, microwave, toaster etc. Not that we really needed the kitchen, as breakfast was included in the accommodation price, but it was nice to have it there anyway. The reception staff were so helpful too, happily answering all our questions about transport and where to go and even booking our Amtrak train to San Diego for when we departed. The really great thing about the Highland Gardens Hotel is its character, for it oozes those bygone days of Hollywood. It is so handy too, just down a side street, a couple of minutes walk off the Hollywood Boulevard. For a most reasonably priced hotel in this location we highly recommend it. We will definitely be going home to the Highland next time we are in Los Angeles!
