Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

If walking is your thing, you are all set. I walked past Paramount Studio and down into the heart of Hollywood. Plenty of dining along the way, stopped twice for a beer and had some amazing tacos from next door to the hotel.

Unbeatable location for the price

We went to hollywood bowl for a concert, and it's the best price in hollywood. It's also close to shops at Melrose st.
