Hotel was beautiful and staff very accommodating. It is situated in a great location in the midst of all that is Hollywood. There are lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance or adjacent to hotel. Hotel is in the middle of renovations but my 4 night stay was not really affected by this. When I asked for a high floor, I was given the option of staying in an unrenovated room on a higher floor or pay the surcharge for a higher floor in a a renovated room. I opted for an unrenovated room and was quite happy with my choice. (Stayed on the top floor) Room was still in pretty good condition even though it was older and showed some wear, which was to be expected, so I'm sure the updated rooms are very nice. Had fantastic views of the Hollywood sign, beautiful sunrises and the LA skyline. Hotel is a very short walk to the Metro which will get you to most of the places that you would want visit outside walking distance of Hollywood. Over all this hotel was very nice and I would stay there again.
