I found this hotel while searching the internet and decided it looked like a great different option to staying in a normal touristy hotel. It was a fantastic decision!
Check-in - once we got served was quick and efficient - admittedly the check in staff member thought we were with another guy who came up in the elevator with us - he probably could have asked us and saved us waiting 5 minutes or so but all good.
Our room was huge - apartment style but with lots of old hollywood glamour furnishings -four poster bed etc. There was everything you would need for a 3 night stay like ours or longer. The bonus was the laundry facilities in our room. We washed everything before flying home and so everything just got put away once we got back to Australia.
The rooms are so large you won't hear anyone else in their rooms because you are all so far apart. We had a great view of the courtyard, Hollywood Boulevard and the top of the Capitol Records building.
We found the doormen really friendly and talkative and got us cabs when we needed them or gave advice when asked.
The staff at the in house restaurant were very accommodating for dinner one night - it was a very busy night but because we were inhouse guests they made sure they found us a table. The restaurant was quite crowded and the close quarters made it a bit loud and quite dark - but the food was fantastic.
The only other thing of note is at check-out - we had an issue trying to pay with a bank Traveller Card (the kind that banks, travel agents, credit card companies etc try to get you to use -you load all your money in the currency you need and use it like a debit card) Well the hotel did not accept is as a form of payment because it didn't have a name on it - in the end it was okay because we had a back up credit card but it was annoying because we had loaded the correct amount on the card for this purpose.
Other than that we had a great stay and would highly recommend it to anyone - well located to a metro station - only two stops from Universal Studios and one stop from Hollywood and Highland which has you right in the middle of the Hollywood area.
