For the money, you won't find a more charming 2-3 star property in a better location. The main entrance sits on Harrison Street so you're not competing with Hollywood Blvd traffic; yet offers a back pedestrian entrance that deposits you right onto Hollywood Boulevard in the middle of the action. Parking is avail for a nightly $6-ish fee. Cheerful housekeeping staff. Note, skip the unimpressive hotel breakfast: instead visit the Chocolada Cafe directly behind the Ramada for hearty breakfasts and coffee under $10/person after 8 am. Some rusty fixtures in the bathroom, but otherwise the same stuff you'd see in many standard business hotels. It did have a good-sized in-room safe, large enough for the typical laptop and/or tablet. I'd reserved a "suite" - I had slightly more tiled floorspace with a couch and small table next to a lamp - but no physical division between it and the 2-bed carpeted sleeping area. I also had a mini-fridge, microwave and hairdryer. There is no pay-per-view, which was disappointing. I never figured out the wi-fi. And my keycards were inactivated DAILY despite the fact that I'd booked a 4-night stay (reactivated upon request - tho without an ID check). I had a great corner room on a higher floor. Unfortunately, the window with the downtown view was built of block glass that let in light and heat only. My in-room a/c easily kept the September humidity at bay, and the constant hum dulled most other noise. I could hear nearby doors opening/slamming and loud voices if near my room, but nothing from the pool/bar below. Room doors do open to the outside. Downtown Hollywood is a typical downtown area, so I wouldn’t stay there again as a single female traveler.
