The Loews is a very nice, modern place amidst the hotspots of Hollywood. The hotel itself is quiet and perfectly located. We had a wonderful room with a great view towards the Hollywood sign and downtown. The bed was so comfy! The only downturn is the bathroom. Compared to the modern stylish hotel it is rather old and very basic.
The staff are friendly and helpful with bookings, luggage and recommendations.
The hotel is excellently linked with the shopping mall and dining courses. We had delicious crepes and ice-cream.
We enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Their pancakes made to order with fresh berries was yummy! In the lobby there is a Starbucks.
You can easily walk from the hotel into the mall and feel safe. After sunset I wouldn't walk too far from the hotel and Highland center as the area is a bit shabby. During the day there is plenty of action. but be careful...everybody wants to sell and make money from you. All in all Hollywood is rather disappointing but a perfect starting point for sightseeing tours in and around LA.
I would go back to Loews whenever in Hollywood!
