This hotel is located right next to Chinese- and Dolby theaters, so you cannot stay in much more central location in Hollywood. Just few minutes to Hollywood boulevard hassle.
I didn't like the vibe of Hollywood Bouleward though. Way too many homeless and drunk people there.
Self parking is downstairs of the Mall in the next building. You should get your luggage to the lobby first and only then drive to the garage as it is quite a long way from there to the hotel.
Price for the parking was 10 dollars for 24 hours. It's not bad for Hollywood at all.
Reception service was friendly and effective and the room was quite ok for the price.
In our bill there was a charge for internet connection even though we didn't use it. When I told about it to the front desk it was removed immediately. No need to argue about it. Well handled.
There seemed to be a nice pool area too but it was too cold to use it this time of year.
Next time in LA area I might prefer staying closer to Sunset Strip or maybe somewhere by the sea like Santa Monica.
