I stayed at the Loews October 18-23 for a conference. The conference services people were amazing, teh banquet staff incredible, front desk folks divine, room service timely and efficient. Housekeeping, however, was not up to par. Complains were resolved quickly, though, so overall a very good stay. The hotel is under construction, but related inconveniences were extremely minimal.
The hotel is in the new Hollywood & Highland shopping and restaurant complex. It's like staying in a mall. I can only walk down Hollywood Boulevard once before boredom sets in, but if you want to take pictures of all the stars in the Walk of Fame, and see all the actors and actresses dressed up as your facorite characters, maybe you'll enjoy it more than I did.
