“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We stayed at the Celebrity for three nights. Very spacious and quiet room with two queen sized beds. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is literally a two minute walk to the Dolby theatre, and Hollywood walk of fame. Plenty of eateries in easy walking distance. There is a tourist information counter on the ground floor of the Dolby theatre where you can book tours, buy transport passes etc.

The only negative point I would make is about the continental breakfast. Cereal (all the sweetened varieties) and pre-frozen waffles and bread for toast, with a small amount of fruit. All to be consumed on paper plates with plastic utensils.

I would choose to stay again.

The Celebrity has been a real surprise! Small hotel but with very large and confortable rooms, very clean. Fantastic location near to Hollywooed blvd but not noisy at all. parking lots really cheap, it is small but we haven't had problems in parking even if the forst night we arrived at 11 pm. We have been there 2 times in our 15-day travelling trough West USA.
WE decided to return fot the last night in LA since the hotel is a jem. The staff immediately recognized us and welcomed as we were long date friends!
Saff very kind and helpful with advices where to go to eat, what to see and interested to our trip to Paso Robles for a hot road car show, giving additional info about other shows in the area!

We only stayed one night here, as budget only allowed us the one night before moving on to our hostel. But it was a great night! the staff were really lovely. looked after our bags as we got there early, and checked us in as soon as possible (2hours early) so we could get some sleep.
Location was great. right behind Highland plaza and great value for money

This hotel is amazing in many ways. (1) staff - were really helpful and nice - they even kept our baggages for us when we left Hollywood for a few days! (2) security - doors are kept locked every night and there will always be someone nearby to open the door for us in the evening (3) rooms - the rooms are so clean and kitchenette area and utensils were all clean and spacey. The rooms are so spacey as well (4) food - since it is only 2 storey, it was so easy to get to breakfast and you could drink hot coffee 24 hrs cos it is just outside your room!! You can have your breakfast in the comfort of your own bedroom and get some more food and drinks just outside your rooms! (5) location - this hotel is so close to Hollywood Boulevard, movies and everything else, you dont need to walk far! You can walk back while shopping if you need to use the bathrooms hehe (6) price - the price is amazingly cheap but the look of the hotel is of a 4 star hotel, but to me it is of 5 star quality! We even rejected to move to a 5 star hotel just to stay here. If you book online and it says full, you must call cos the online details could be different, this is why we had to book an adjacent hotel in the first place.

Overall, the place is very impressive and modern. It is secure for kids who like to open the hotel bedroom door while you are relaxing! There are vending machines that sell drinks and travel necessities. I love the people who looked after the place!! There is also a computer outside if you wish to surf the net! No need to bring a laptop!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. We stayed in 3 different rooms and all every spacey. You could request extr...

A short walk through a pedestrian tunnel at the end of the quiet street takes you through to the Hollywood and Highland Centre and chaotic Hollywood Boulevard. Right near the theatres, metro station (one stop to Universal Studios), with a supermarket and restaurants nearby. Our room was cosy, but had separate nooks with a table/microwave and a luggage area. The beds were high and comfortable. The paintwork was a little worn, but he hotel has character and the room was very clean. Request a first floor room if you don't want to carry bags upstairs.
Breakfast was basic but adequate (muffins, waffles, toast, sugary cereals and juice). You take it on trays back to your room. Staff were friendly and responded quickly to emails. They organised a flat-rate taxi to LAX for $55.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced, centrally located hotel for the classic tourist spots, this is it. On a very quiet dead end street one block behind Hollywood Boulevard near the Dolby theater is this great little hotel. Easy to reach from the highway, safe to walk to at night. Friendly staff, large clean rooms (some with kitchenettes I believe), continental breakfast and parking for $10/ night. The rooms are huge. The standard room is either a king or two queens. Our king had a sitting area, dressing area, dinette with four chairs and a small fridge. There's a microwave in the public breakfast alcove.

Breakfast is simple--Costco-type muffins, cereal, bread and waffles to toast and some pieces of fresh fruit. Apple and orange juice. No yogurt. Coffee and tea available around the clock. There is no restaurant in the hotel but many, many close by!

Only disappointment was the Internet. It's not wireless! Ethernet cord supplied upon request for wired in-room Internet but if you brought your iPad you can't connect. There is a Starbucks close by but I missed being able to use my iPad in the room.

We were in room 109 and it was perfect. I would suggest you ask for room 107 or higher. The ones lower than that would be too close to reception and the breakfast alcove for my taste.

If I return to LA I will definitely stay there again. Book it without hesitation.

Room Tip: Room 107 or higher. Lower numbered rooms are close to reception and the breakfast alcove. Could be...
