We booked our stay at the Hollywood Celebrity after reading mixed reviews on trip advisor. However this place was great for the price and anyone who rates this place badly is obviously hard to please!

The room:
Big spacious rooms, great air conditioning, seperate bathroom area with shower over bath, wardrobe and dressing area, kitchen area with table, microwave, fridge/freezer and kettle.

The service:
Computer with unlimited free internet access provided in the lobby, staff very helpful about locations around LA, free parking area (although admittedly this was small, however we always managed to find a space and when the car park is full the staff will show you to somewhere else nearby you may also park for free.

The breakfast:
Great selection of muffins, bagels, croissants, juices etc. Although only two chairs downstairs so we took plates etc up to the room and had breakfast at our table.

Location:
Right behind the Hollywood and Highland mall on Orchid Avenue. You can walk through the mall to be straight on Hollywood Blvd.

Great hotel for the price, a tad grubby on the outside but more than made up for on the inside! Has a nice patio area, also has a small fitness centre ad spa (however we never used these). There was no pool, but this wasnt a problem as we were later going to Santa Monica!

Highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting L.A. The most friendly staff we encountered on our travels. Such a great location, one block to hollywood boulevard-but far away enough not to be overwhelmed by all the tourists! Rooms were large and accomadating with all ameneties. Great continental breakfast everyday from 8-10am, so if you want to sleep in a little you can still make breakfast. Gym, steam room all available!

Truly a great hotel! 5 star rating for service and location!

The location for our stay in Hollywood couldn't have been better. It was a very short walk to the Shopping Centre and Hollywood Blvd. The Metro and Buses were easy to get around on and the gentleman on the front desk at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful with maps and lots of info.

You get what you pay for with the room. Considering the price we paid it was good value.

I would recommend this hotel to families wanting good value, great location, helpful staff, but don't expect the Ritz.

We originally booked a hotel outside of Hollywood and changed the night before our trip to this particular motel. Reviews were good which made me feel more comfortable. Excellent location close to shops and food and all tourist activities, especially the walk of fame, chinese theatre and the Hollywood sign. Easy access to all tours including a bus to Santa Monica beach (about 1 hour away). Very friendly staff provided advice and assistance. Breakfast was standard pastries and coffee/tea, but enough to start the day with something in your stomach. Excellent sized room (we had king bed). Air conditioned, which was very important considering the heat. Would definitely recommend for the location.

TO SAVE MONEY...

Take the underground train to Universal studios, as it is only a few dollars and stops right outside the gate to the park, with a free shuttle inside. Rather than booking tours online, walk around the tourist areas and negotiate with the vendors as they are willing to sell tours below the listed cost if they arent busy.

Stayed at the Hollywood Celebrity for 3 nights over Thanksgiving. What a charming place.

Pros:
The staff are WONDERFUL and very friendly.
The rooms are gigantic.
The location is great-right behind the Highland shopping center and all that Hollywood has to offer.
The rooms have Queen/ King beds instead of the Full/ Queen beds that are more typical of LA rooms.
Free parking!
Free continental breakfast.
Free internet in the rooms and use of hotel computer in front lobby.

Cons:
The hotel is old. It is very, very clean for its age and was probably updated pretty recently, but the windows allow lots of street noise into the rooms. You can mitigate this by turning on the fan (window unit). That is the only con I can think of.

Honestly, if they replaced the windows and did a full renovation (granite/ tile, etc) they would probably be able to command 3 times what they charge. I'll take the old and clean for the price and will most definitely stay here on my future trips to LA.

We only had a brief stay at the Celebrity Hotel as our stay in LA was brief but we selected it on the basis of other travellers’ reviews on this website. The hotel is a LONG way away from the airport and an expensive taxi ride away, but it is in an extremely good location in Hollywood and that is one of the main reasons to stay there. It is literally a few steps away from a comprehensive shopping centre and the Hollywood Walk of Stars. It is also very close to an underground Metro station and 1 stop away from Universal Studios by Metro.

The rooms are quite large and certainly comfortable, but a little on the tired side and could do with a bit of a refresh. Each room does have air conditioning. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel also offered breakfast in the price, and the bagels with condiments were a great start to the day shared in the downstairs lobby or outside on the terrace. The hotel has free internet service also located in the lobby.

The staff at the hotel are exceptionally helpful and friendly. We planned and organised all our activities with them directly and they even had a taxi waiting for us for our transfer to the airport when we had quite a tight schedule. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel and the tired rooms are not that big of a deal!

We had two stays at this hotel during our time in California.

What a location!

It is in a quiet 1930's Art Deco street yet on the other side of the same block there is bustling Hollywood Boulevard. It is literally 5 minutes walk from The Chinese Theatre, The Kodak Theatre and The Magic Castle.

The staff are fantastic and are always ready to provide help and advice if needed.

Free internet was welcome as was the buffet breakfast (croissants, bagels,muffins,coffee and juice). The rooms are a comfortable size and are very good value when you consider the location.

We would certainly stay there again when we are next in Hollywood.
