This hotel has easy access to Hollywood and other attractions and restaurants.
First of all, let me start by saying they do not serve your average "free breakfast" ; they serve THE BEST breakfast you could imagine! From fresh orange juice & lemonade, to omelette, home-made waffles, and a variety of foods. It was my favorite part! Hugo & Elvira were great, friendly, and I liked how they remembered my friend and I after the first day we went. The restaurant area is very nice, as well as the patio area in the middle where the bar is.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
From the front it may not look so pretty, but the back entrance where the parking is, is beautiful! I saw the pool but did not get in, but it's small and private.
The parking is secure, but the gate when you get your ticket is quick to close, seeing as I had to get out because my arms are too short to reach. (short people problems)
There is a convenient shop on the bottom floor towards the parking that is low price. I ended up buying a carry on with wheels for $10 because my carry on broke. I also got sunburned and bought aloe-vera lotion and after-sun gel for under $5!
The beds and pillows were very comfy! The comforter was really nice, thick and fluffy. Bed was stiff, great for my back!
The AC is icy cold! Works perfect, and if it gets too cold and you want to turn it down, it works quick.
The room was very spacious, as well as the bathroom. There is a microwave and mini-fridge available, as well as coffee & a hair dryer.
The lower level bathrooms by the front desk were not soo nice. Those looked old compared to the ones in the bathroom.
The room key did not always work when going up/down the stairs, or to the bathroom downstairs.
The elevator move EXTREMELY slow! I used the stairs the whole time because I felt like it was going to get stuck at any moment.
The floor in the bedroom looked clean, but stepping in them in light colored socks, you saw the socks turn dark.
We left the "do not disturb" sign on the handle before my friend and I went out (both of us girls) because we left clothes/ make-up/ hair stuff out around the bed and did not want the room cleaned since we still had not made up our minds, but room was still cleaned, thus, sign was ignored.
Overall, we did explore the city and surrounding areas; this was one of the nicer hotels for the price, great area, excellent staff, nice on the inside. We had a pleasant stay. Would book again.
