We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2013 in a 2 bedroom suite. Although it was winter in LA people still swam in the pool as it is heated. On site parking was a bonus as we had a hire car. The staff were fantastic, printing off driving directions for us. As guests we were able to go to the brunch at the Magic Castle with our 18 year old son, which was expensive but a lot of fun and we enjoyed the shows and food. As we did the brunch after flying in from Australia that morning, the hotel allowed us to use a room to shower and change until our suite was available at normal check in time. The hotel was great value for a family of four, with continental breakfast and snacks included. The food is set up in the foyer so you can help yourself and either eat in the courtyard or take back to your room. This is great if you want to be quick. The location is ideal for walking along Hollywood Boulevard and is minutes from the Chinese Theatre and subway entrance. Really enjoyed our stay.
