“Great - Location Location Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Most of the reviews for this hotel is correct. The location is fantastic as its on the middle of Sunset Blvd. It was great to be so close to so many famous bars, clubs and restaurants. We had chosen this hotel because of the location so we were quite satisfied. Enjoy the breakfast, they get packed out quite quickly so you need to be early. However a tip, get your breakfast and have it next to the pool! We didn't know you were able to do that until we checked out. Overall, the room(s) were clean and comfortable. The free Wi-fi internet helped with making plans. It was also handy to have coin operated laundry on the premises.

I want to make a special mention to their staff, Carlos. He helped upgrade us as it was our honeymoon. He was able to put a room aside for us after a day.

Pity, even though I had forwarded a note via Expedia stating it was our honeymoon and called the hotel directly prior to the trip, we didn't get any special welcome from the hotel. Maybe it was due to how busy they were.

Room Tip: Request for a room on level 2 or 3 facing the pool where it is quieter. The hotel is on a downward s...

It is a great shame the service is average as the hotel itself is a lovely hotel in a good location.
Rooms are nice and lovely beds and even though on a busy road you don't hear the traffic and our room was on the busy road. Very clean and tidy with good facilities. Breakfast is good but a tiny breakfast room so if the hotel is busy you get your breakfast on level 3 then go to a conference room on level 4. Not so convenient! Location is the bonus to this hotel and very accessible to many eating possibilities with an awesome venue directly across the road where you could eat every day if you wanted.
The staff are not rude but just not very forthcoming.
I would recommend this hotel for middle of the road not too expensive option.

We stayed here for a week during the UK October school holidays. The staff were extremely helpful, especially considering we had trouble checking in due to our Bank card being blocked due to the clocks going back in London! They recommended sites to see, gave helpful directions and warned us of the craziness expected on Halloween! The rooms were clean and had adequate space - the fridge and microwaves an added bonus.

The pool area was lovely, well maintained, just a shame that in October there was less opportunity to use it as the evenings were cooler.

The breakfast was an added bonus - very good quality and helpful staff. A very good selection of hot and cold food, which we didn't expect.

The location of the hotel was also great - a good central base for us as we went to the Hollywood area, universal, the other studios, Beverly Hills, Malibu and explored west Hollywood itself. We had a car which made life much easier but there's plenty of bars and restaurants nearby.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would definitely stay again.

This was our first time visiting the L.A. area and we picked this hotel from the AAA travel book. It turned out to be a great place to stay. We had a lovely room overlooking the pool area and what was really nice was that you could open the window and let some of the nice warm breezes in. The pool area was very well kept and full of beautiful pink flowers. The daily breakfast was also very good. In addition to cereals and baked goods, it also featured bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs and a waffle station. This saved a lot of time in the A.M. rather than having to go out for breakfast. The location is great. There are a lot of nice restaurants within walking distance and the Hollywood attractions are only a short drive or cab ride away. It was easy to get a cab at the hotel also. Every staff member that we encountered was most helpful and friendly. If we ever have the pleasure of visiting L.A. again we will definitely stay here!

Room Tip: The view from the rooms overlooking the pool courtyard is beautiful.

We had driven by this property numerous times in the past and finally booked a room. What a great surprise. Close to a lot of restaurants and things to see in Hollywood. Great parking under the building and clean comfortable rooms. The pool area is quite a surprise tucked away from busy Sunset. The only downside is that you are very close to the House of Blues and if the music bothers you ask for a room on the opposite side. Would definitely stay again!!

We stayed here for a week on our visit to LA.
The hotel is located perfectly for tourists who, like us, would like to see as much as they can during a short stay. Everything worth seeing is relatively close and if you chose your travel times wise you won't end up sitting in traffic all day.
Good restaurants to dine are walking distance (5-10 mins) on Sunset blvd., west from the hotel. There are also nice bars for anyone who would like dive into nightlife.
The hotel is perfectly clean, the rooms and public areas are well kept, the garden with the pool is fine too.
We did not experience the noises that other guests on tripadvisor complained about.
What we did not like was the breakfast that was poor quality, crowded and felt very cheap. All plates, cups, etc. were disposable plastic.
The other problem was with sleep quality, the pillows were so big and hard that we did not sleep well.
The hotel is very good value compared to location and quality but keep in mind that it still expensive (you won't find cheap hotels in Hollywood) but it is still a lot cheaper than other hotels nearby. Keep in mind that they have an additional charge of 16/day for parking.
