We were fairly please with this hotel. It used to be apartments that have been renovated. I think they are still in the process of renovating because it was a mix of new features and old worn features. Overall it is fairly clean, I noticed a little dirt/dust behind the bathroom door and the carpet had some stains, but everything else was ok. The beds were clean. The room is really like an apartment so this would be good if you were staying for a while. The best part of this place is the pool and the view (if you are in a city-side, not hillside room). In person, the pool really does look like the photos.
If you plan to visit the walk of starts and Chinese theatre this is a short walk from the hotel. This touristy area of Hollywood is pretty sketchy. It was nice to return to the peaceful Hollywood Hills after our insane walk down Hollywood Blvd.
If you have mobility issues, this may not be the hotel for you. There is not an elevator and depending on which floor you are on, you may need to walk up a flight or two of stairs with your luggage. The hotel is on a steep hill, so it is about a 5 - 10 minute walk down to breakfast at the main hotel (Magic Castle). However, they do offer a free shuttle.
You can use the amentities at the Magic Castle hotel (they give out snacks), but the pool at the Hollywood Hils is much nicer.The staff is super friendly and helpful. They gave us some good restaurant recommendations.
Breakfast at the Magic Castle was pretty tasty. It was your regular continental breakfast items - cereal, muffins, yogurt, fruit. It was presented beautifully (it looked like Martha Stewart set it out).
Yes we received a surprise parking fee at the Hollywood hotels. I do not remember the exact amount, but it was between $10 and $15 for the night.
To summarize, this place could be a little cleaner, but the staff, the pool, and the view are awesome.
