“Great location.”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

We stayed here for five days while we were visiting Hollywood. We didn't want to stay at an expensive place where there was a lot of traffic to fight but wanted a nice clean hotel. Don't let the outside of this hotel fool you as you pull off the street to the front check-in. For some reason the picture above of the pretty "front" is in the back of the hotel where the parking lot and pool are. We made the mistake of looking for what was in that picture instead of paying attention to the numbers so we drove right by the hotel a couple of times without knowing it. Our stay had a great buffet breakfast included with the price. The eggs were cooked to order right in front of you along with fresh waffles. I felt safe here in this area and walked a lot during the daylight hours. We used this hotel as a place to sleep and come home to after a long day of sight seeing.

We've stayed here several times before and always enjoyed our visits.

Free breakfast is great with very friendly and helpful staff, Sonia and Oralia served us today and made great omelettes.

The hotel is clean and tidy even with the latest improvements happening.

I'll agree with the cost of the hotel parking, it's too pricy for us at $22 per day would cost us $154 for our total stay, we use street parking but make sure you watch out for street cleaning!

The bedrooms lovely and clean although a bit cool for us as it's on the courtyard side of the building.

We will definitely be back at the hotel.

This is my second visit to the Hollywood Hotel. Check in was friendly and efficient. The room is clean, pleasant and beds are very comfortable. The overall environment is good, and there are places to sit, rest, and read. Haven't used the pool, it's too cold right now. I like this hotel and will come back again. Good safe and secure parking. Quiet, we have no disturbances. Very well located for ease of access to anything in LA. Thanks to Sonia for lovely omelettes and Oralia.

The inside of the hotel is very dim. It needs to be brighter so that the guests aren't afraid to walk down the halls alone. Breakfast is awesome but the chef automatically says "om.e.let?" (Omelette) regardless of you telling him 5x that you want scrambled eggs and he still makes you an omelette.... Other than that the breakfast is great with all of the options available. Location is awesome but the paying for parking was crazy to me. You could just park on the side street for free. Save 23$ a night. Room was very very nice with a balcony. I didn't like the fact that anyone on my floor could walk over to my balcony at anytime.... That wasn't cool but the other floors had private ones. The Russian girl at the desk gets an attitude sometimes and she claimed she couldn't do something that I came back and spoke with someone else about and they did for me. I'd give her 2 stars out of 10. She's rude to guests as well. She was on the cell phone while I waited for about 4 minutes. Other than her my stay was great. About 4 nights.

Unfortunately this was the only hotel in this travel (in a total of 3) or in all others travels that provided a room whit only 1 bed for 2 adults and 2 children as previously informed in the hotel reservation. For my surprise when I told to the manager that has a mistake and we need an extra bed because we are 4 the manager told that we need to pay US$ 234 for 6 days extra bed. Frustrating experience because the hotel is nice and this kind of attitude shows some way to get a fake price when you make the reservation.

Hollywood Hotel gives good value. The staff werw friendley, the rooms were tidy and the brekfast was excellent. The parking cost $22 per day but it was good value with easy parking.
It is close to the Metro which did not exist last time we were in Los Angeles.

Free breakfast with custom omelets!, pristine swimming pool, fitness roon, comedy hour evenings, rental car company on premises if you need a car just one day, frig and MW in the room, walking distance to the subway, extra comfortable bedding, quiet, clean, free internet access--this place has it all. And the kind desk clerk even told us about an authentic Mexican cafe with take-out in walking distance. We ate our supper in the open atrium area of the hotel. That saved us a lot of cash, while providing a culinary delight!
We were there for a convention held at the LA Convention Center. The subway took us right to the convention center, and a day pass--$5/day allowed us to travel all over Hollywood, too.
We are educators, and we learned how friendly folks are in this area.

Room Tip: We had room 248--and all of the rooms on that sdie would have been quiet.

Green Features: We asked not to have the room towels changed out every day. The staff still checked in, picked-up and made our beds. Nice.
