As others have written this is a fantastic location if you are going to the Hollywood Bowl as you can walk right to it. The hotel is on the older side and it is starting to show...rooms need paint...crack in the sink. The bed was very comfortable, however the frame was larger than the mattress and a bit big for the room and I walked into it a few times. But it is very clean and the service was mostly good. We had a room facing the pool (as suggested by other reviewers so road noise wasn't an issue. The walls are thin and people came into their rooms at our bedtime and it was fairly noisy. Luckily they quieted down quickly but I guess it could be an issue. One suggestion is that they have hot tea/ coffee in the lobby in the evening as they did at breakfast time as they didn't have many choices of pods for Keurigs in the room. I wanted decaf tea and they didn't have any and didn't offer any. Overall we were very pleased because you can't beat proximity to the Bowl. It is pricey but you pay for location.
