“Very well located, super service and included breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Sunset Plaza during the Oscar weekend last February. First of all, check inn went very smoothly. We got a room at the end of the hall (on the ground floor, but the back of the hotel is below 0, so you have a nice view at the back of the hotel). The room had a terrace with a view over the back of LA and the pool on the side, there was a safe, sofa,..

Price/quality you can't choose a better hotel than this. They have an underground parking in the back and it's only a 15 min drive to everything you would want to do in LA.

The Vanity Fair after party of the Oscars was in the hotel next door, so that was cool too.

Furthermore; breakfast is included.

If we ever visit LA again and don't want to stay at the beach, we'll use the BW again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with terrace - they are in the back but are the biggest and nicest of them all.

Was booked in another hotel for 3 days in march after our trip to Vegas . Decided t cancel the other more expensive hotel as we had I feel overspent in Vegas so decided to save a few bucks .oh
" the best laid plans" Decide that the best western was a good idea as it was at the same location as the previous hotel and very positive reviews on trip advisor .
First there was no one for our luggage ,! We had 4 large suitcases . Then the first room was underground with a view of a cement wall . It had musty odour no natural light and the ceiling I could touch without over stretching my arm . I'm no giant at 5"11 ! . I'm nit sure they should be selling that room to anyone . We went upstairs and asked for a change of room . They agreed for and upgrade fro about I think 30 USD more . I immediately agreed . However that although still and improvement was still musty with very low ceilings . The only highlight was them allowing our good friends at bookings .com to allow us t leave early . Checked out the next morning and got he Beverly Hilton for only 7 USD a day more . Trust me that was an improvement .

SunsetPlaza8400, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Sunset Plaza Hotel, responded to this review, April 9, 2013
Thank you so much for your review regarding the Sunset Plaza. As you noted, the hotel is nestled in between the many attractions of Hollywood and Beverly Hills. I personally went to measure the ceiling heights of our rooms and confirmed they meet the requirement of at least 8 feet high. Would you please contact me so I can look into this further as I don't have any record of you staying with us.

We can recommend this hotel for it's friendly service and for it's prime location. In particular we can report the following:
1. We arrived early but they gave us an upgrade into another room immediately.
2. Staff were instantly responsive to any request: even after-hours requests were answered immediately.
3. Free Wi-fi was reliable and easy to use.
4. Hot buffet breakfast is more than adequate: the cook even offered me hot waffles.
5. In resolving problems with our tours and shuttles, the desk clerks were always responsive and made many phone calls on our behalf.
6. There is a taxi rank right outside the hotel.
7. A taxi ride to Hollywood and Vine is less than $20 US.
8. You can walk to the best part of 'The Strip' (the Plaza) in about 10 minutes.
9. There is a steakhouse, a burger bar and Starbucks right across the road and many eating places within walking distance.

This is a beautiful hotel to stay at in West Hollywood. We had a third floor room facing the pool. The room was spacious and really nice. The beds were so comfortable. Having two fifteen year old boys with me, I appreciated the breakfast that came with our stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Pool view is really nice.

Loved the room here - it was very spacious and due to the little kitchen corner, we were able to have a take-away during one of the evenings. Clean room, everything worked well and the hotel was quiet so it was easy to get a good night's sleep here. Breakfast was quite basic, but perfectly enough. Good location as well - love staying at this bit of Sunset!

Room Tip: Our room was facing the back of other buildings, including one of the really popular bars. There wer...

We really liked most things about this hotel. Here's what we liked:
- rooms are very large. Nice for a family of four.
- Fridge in room which came in very handy
- Great location and easy to get in and out for days of sight seeing. We were able to walk to a convenience store, bars/restaurants and some Jim Morrison tourist sites (Alta Cienga Motel, Barney's Beanery, etc.)
- Pool area was lovely and relaxing after seeing busy Hollywood sites
- Parking price reasonable $16 per night
- Breakfast was the same everyday, but met our needs
- Very comfy beds

Things we didn't like:
- Would have really liked a hot tub to use on cool LA nights. We were really disappointed that there wasn't one
- Exhaust in bathroom was non existent plus there wasn't a mirror anywhere else in the room, so it made it challenging for a family of 4 to get ready in the morning. If they would move the mirror from inside the bathroom door to outside that old help. We just took shifts using bathroom and going to breakfast as you had to prop the bathroom door open to be able to use the mirror.

We would say here again. Good price.

We stayed over spring break weekend. 2adults & 2 kids. The room was big, spacious and clean. We loved it. the beds were very comfy, but the pillows were a bit too high. no big deal, because the room was great.
There was one gentleman at the check in desk in the morning that was not very friendly, but the rest of the staff were very nice.
The hotel is centrally located. There were restaurants and bars nearby, not to mention very safe.
There was also breakfast included.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Top marks!

Room Tip: Some rooms open to the pool. This may be noisy when people are there. I recommend avoiding certain r...
