To be clear, this is the Holiday Inn Express at Silverlake, not Hotel 250 at silverlake, not sure why the confusion on the name. Even the shuttle service from the airport also had a hard time figuring out what hotel I was seeking transportation to, even though the hotel referred me to their service. They had to go by the street address.
Girl at check-in was very friendly and helpful as were all the other staff I encountered. Rooms were clean. Parking was sufficient. Hotel was quiet during my stay. The room was very simple with no frills. You get the basic amenities but nothing more. I think the rooms could use a bit of remodeling to feel a bit more accomodating. I was on the fifth floor, and the outside walkway faced right into the hillside and wasn't well lit at night...but at least it was quiet and not facing a noisy road. My other view was a portion of roof then Rt101. When the haze lifted enough, I was just able to make out the Hollywood sign on the distant hills.
The biggest con: Location location location. At first I did not rent a car thinking I could just take the metro to the LA Convention Center since it was only two blocks away. One look at the neighborhood and I opted for the rental car. There were some homeless hanging out near the hotel and it wasn't the kind of neighborhood I would feel safe walking in well after dark. The good news in all of this is that the hotel is set up upon a hill so there is a buffer zone between the neighborhood and the hotel property. But if staying here, plan on renting a car or taking a taxi.
Overall, generally pretty average. Other than the location I had no major complaints. At the same time, the services offered were just the bare bones, and the only real compliment I could give is that their front desk service was friendly. Bottom line: stay here if on a budget or having trouble finding room elsewhere. But look somewhere a bit nicer first if you can afford it.
