Stayed here for the first part of out trip for 5 nights. We took the LAX Flyaway to Union Station $7 and then the Metro Line red ($5 day pass, $20 for 7 days) to Vermont/Beverly Station. The Hotel is one building away to the left from the Metro station. We were greeted but a pleasant guy on reception and quickly checked in. The reception area looked clean and modern, we then took the lift (elevator) to the 2nd floor, the lift did not look as modern and looked like it could do with some TLC. The hallways in the hotel looked in a good state if a little dated, the doors to the rooms could do with a fresh paint job though.
The room was large with two double comfy beds with a bedside table and alarm clock between the beds, Two sitting chairs and table, A large unit containing drawers and cupboard below the TV, A large flat screen TV, Fridge, Coffee maker, Microwave, large walk in wardrobe (Closet), Ironing board, Iron and a safe. The room also had it's own air conditioning unit and free wireless internet access.
The bathroom was a good size with a large mirror and sink area, toilet and a low level bath and shower The shower did have a strange attachment that produced a rain effect as one of the settings.
The breakfast was reasonable including three cereals, a selection of cakes and pastries, bagels and bread that could be toasted and a waffle maker. There was also fresh fruit and plenty of juices and plenty of tea and coffee. A member of staff was regularly clearing up and keeping the cakes and pastries topped up.
The area surrounding the hotel felt reasonably safe, we walked along Vermont Ave (Left from the Hotel) in the afternoon and found a selection of shops, including a small supermarket and plenty of placed to eat including McDonalds about half a mile up the road. There are also plenty of petrol (gas) stations along the road. The area after dark felt reasonably safe, we felt safe enough to walk from the metro station to the hotel after midnight.
In summary - The hotel is a good location for travellers not using a car as it is in a great location on the Metro Red line that can take you to the Hollywood/Highland station where the Walk of Fame and Chinese Theatres can be found, Universal Studios (Universal City Station) and Union Street Station for Trains and LAX Flyway. The Hotel also has a car park and only a few blocks away from a free way.
The not so good stuff - The décor might not be to everyone's taste yellow and green in the room. Some of the paint was peeling around the edges such as at the bottom of the doors, the outlook from a lot of the rooms is onto other buildings, the breakfast selection is limited compared to other hotels and the breakfast room is small. The hotel is not in the centre of Hollywood and is certainly not near Universal Studios compared to other Hotels.
