Our primary need was for a comfortable room since we were mostly going to be there after seeing the nearby attractions. It is an older style hotel with many rooms facing the pool in an atrium style setting. When I was told while booking the hotel that we were being upgraded from a double to queen beds it wasn't clear that it was ONE bed. Luckily there was only two of us the first day, but two more were coming in for days two and three. The clerk at the front desk accommodated us by providing a rollaway bed the first night and offering us an upgraded poolside room for the next two nights. The poolside room had a lot more space and was fine for our needs. Overall the front desk clerk was very courteous and helpful.
The hotel was great for walking access to the Hollywood attractions along Hollywood Blvd and the walk of stars area. We also visited Universal Studios, Magic Mountain, and the beaches (Venice & Malibu). Universal was very close and that made it easy to get there early in the day. Trying to plan your driving to avoid rush hour can be helpful.
It was nice to have the pool to jump into after hitting the beach. It was clean and decent sized. The poolside room was roomy and had modern 32" LCD televisions. Our first room with one queen bed was quite a bit smaller and darker since it wasn't a poolside room. If I went back, I would definitely opt for a poolside room (some have mini-kitchens, ours did)
