I booked this hotel via booking.com, everything confirmed and seems fine until when I arrived.
Front desk told me that it's fully booked when I showed him the confirmation email (they told me that the system was error or something)
Then he convinced me to stay at the other hotel, I had no choice since I had a big luggage with me, so he called a cab for me for around 4 blocks away from this hotel, he said that this room is more expensive but he will pay for this (this seems good, right?).
When I arrived at the other hotel, I have no idea how it's possible more expensive since the location is worse (nothing around there and further from Metro subway), the room was quite old and a bit dirty but I decided to stay there because I don't want to waste my time anymore)
The worse thing is that in the next morning, the front desk of that hotel told me today is fully booked and he had to take me back to the Hotel Hollywood (that was fully booked as well, and operator told me that he will find another hotel for me, WHAT??) but after a call to Hotel Hollywood, hotel front desk told me that there were available rooms but more expensive, so I called Hotel Hollywood again and he said that he can't cover for that, I have to pay my own.
From this experience, I won't never book this hotel again, EVER!
