My husband and I stayed 7 nights at the Dixie and are so glad to be out of there!!!
Advertised as a boutique hotel, and paying upwards of $140 per night we were not expecting the ritz but we were certainly expecting more than a banger motel!
Check in was relatively easy, although when inquiring about the car rental their website says they offer, we were instructed to come back in the morning....no follow up, no information, so we just went elsewhere for a car.
The room was spacious enough I guess, old rooms with a quick luck of paint and flat screen tv, but underneath just a tired motel room, there is a small bar fridge and microwave in the room, the ac's knobs were broken so if you turned it off it was unlikely you could get it going again, without it it was hot and stuffy but with seemingly only one setting, at times it got quite cold!
The wifi here is all but non-existent, super slow if it worked at all.....your best bet is to sit by the door with your phone outside.....even then loading a page was arduous.
The pool area is quaint and looks great all lit up at night time, however after swimming there once I developed a rash, kind of like chlorine burn?
The staff were less than helpfull, three times my husband and I were walked in on without even KNOCKING and all three times when the do not disturb sign was displayed!!! Twice by house keeping and once by maintenance claiming to be coming to fix curtains that had fallen down.....curtains that were drawn and clearly intact?
Twice we had to go to reception and get new keys programmed as the system had timed us out, the original booking was for 7 nights so it's not like we confused things by extending our stay or anything, both times it was late at night too, when you just want to get inside and go to bed, not mess around getting new keys!
The hotel is on Hollywood blvd, but the other side of the freeway, so at least a 30-45 min walk from all the attractions, there is a subway next door that takes you in but we never used it, we don't mind walking.
The only saving grace is the AMAZING restaurant, I'm not sure if it is part of the Dixie or just on the same property, but easily the best food we ate in all of LA!!!
