I used to stay next door which has now become a different hotel: watching the current one being built was interesting since it was difficult to imagine how they could have stuck a fully functioning hotel on the side of a mountain, but they have. Complete with pool and two story garage.
The rooms are of course newer and somewhat bigger, but the mix now has many more rooms with basic cooking amenities if you cant grapple with going out into Hollywood Boulevard nearby: and nearby it is, 3/400 yds, but luckily you cant see or hear it as the hotel faces the Hollywood Hills ( see my pic of yet another sunrise in Paradise from the top floor of the hotel)
As ever the day starts with a wonderful breakfast provided by the hotel and then that room is closed for the rest of the day.
As to the hotel itself, generally the staff are attentive and charming and the standard of hygiene is top class. Nobody expects this kind of hotel to be a mind opening experience, but everybody who I come across in the corridors or round the hotel seems to be having a good time: it must be the Hollywood effect.
In summary, top marks for the management and the brand and if you want a reasonable stay in the Hollywood area, there is none better.
