“Good Hotel”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We stay there for 4 Days. Hugo from the restaurant did a great job. Staff was very helpful. Rooms are great. Only 5 minutes to metro an 15 minutes to Universal City. The perfect place if you would visit hollywood.
Thanks

Great location, super swank, well appointed hotel with big rooms and wonderful ammenities. The hand crafted breakfast was a super bonus. You should definitely stay here when you are in town. The Hollywood Hotel rocks!

Room Tip: Get an odd # room to face the courtyard.

We loves the Hollywood Hotel. The location was great. The staff was courteous and helpful, especially Hugo and Juan in the restaurant. The suites were great. What a value! We will stay at this hotel every time we come to the LA area.

We stayed at the Hollywood Hotel after 5 nights in a luxury hotel in Las Vegas. This was a mistake. We should have reversed the holiday and started in LA. The Hollywood Hotel is certainly not what it appears to be in the brochures. It is tired and dark inside. However, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is very good. The housekeeping staff do a good job and the rooms are clean. It is a $20 taxi ride from downtown LA, the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and Starline Tours (which offer just about every tour you could wish for) and 5 minutes walk from the nearest Metro station. 15 minutes walk away are some very reasonable restaurants. HOWEVER, to walk anywhere you will have to pass vagrants sleeping on many of the benches on the pavements. They do not cause much trouble but they stink. The pavements smell badly of urine and the rest. We passed one shamelessly urinating on the pavement which offended and upset our daughter.
If the Hollywood Hotel (with its current staff) was located in a better area and brighter bulbs fitted (and a lick of paint applied) it would be a decent enough place to stay. We had a good time but it could have been better.

Room Tip: Don't take a room on the ground floor especially if it is facing the courtyard. There is no priv...

After reading the many reviews about the Hollywood Hotel I was keen to make my own judgement. For the price we paid it was a great hotel. It's not a 5 star hotel so it's unreasonable to expect the same service and details that five star promises. I did enjoy the complimentary breakfast and the omelettes, although good, were not the amazing creations that I had been anticipating after reading all the reviews. I did wonder why the illustrious Hugo received so many accolades on Trip Advisor and was able to find out for myself. The omelette and waffle makers hand out TA cards with their name on it asking for good reviews. Although this is not so bad, I find it a little contrived. I would like to mention Anna at front desk, who did not ask for a good review. She was professional, friendly, without being over familiar and very helpful. In all a great hotel with a great location. And to the occasional few who have reviewed this hotel and complained about the homeless people sleeping outside....you are scumbags who don't deserve the lifestyles you are lucky to have.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room facing the courtyard...very nice

Had a pleasant stay at the Hollywood Hotel. Front desk were very helpful, especially Eddie and another young lady who's name I didn't get. Hugo on the omelette station was very friendly also!

Would visit again!

I was in LA with a friend for the half marathon. This was a great location and nice hotel was def better then what I expected. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. They had free breakfast in the morning which was awesome! The hotel is also very close to the subway which we used to get to the marathon instead of paying for parking. In LA you have to pay for parking everywhere you go basically. The hotel parking was reasonably priced. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who isn't looking to spend a ton of money and wants to be close to the downtown area.

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends
