Location of hotel was excellent...5 minutes walk from Hollywood Strip i.e. Hollywood Walk of Fame, Kodak Theatre, Madame Tussauds etc. Room was basic and good value...Don't expect Hilton standards as it's actually a Hilton Garden Inn (don't let the name mislead you). Service was excellent. As I was on a long trip, I find that the coin operated laundry machine was extremely helpful..In an hour and $2, you could do a load of laundry. There's also a 24 hour pantry where you can get laundry powder, drinks, snacks and microwavable meals (as there's a microwave in the room). Good if you are on a budget and wants to travel light. The Hollywood and Highland metro stop is also a 5 minutes walk and it's one stop from Universal City (Stop to get to Universal Studios). As I didn't drive, parking wasn't a concern. The only constructive feedback I could give is, it would be great to have a safe in the room. Although the hotel does offer to store your passports etc in the reception safe, it would have been a lot more convenient to have a safe in the rooms considering that there's already a microwave in the room. I reckon travellers would prefer a safe over a microwave. Also if you are a light sleeper, ask for a room at the back as mine faced the main road and you could hear the cars on the streets although it didn't bother me at all.
