disappointing

I was in LA to visit my daughter. I needed a place near to where she lives. It was near...that's about the best thing I could say. The neighbor was awful...lots of homeless people ...very sad. Room was just ok. Toilet was broken. Charge you $24 for parking on top of room charge. Complimentary breakfast was a waste. Coffee was awful. Some of the staff were nice. I would not EVER go back...even if it was free!

Bussiness Trip

To be honest the pictures are very not really like the hotel. The price is okay for the value. The over night guy that works the front desk.....idk wasn't empressed. would stay for the price again, but that sadly the only reason. There are tons of options out there....keep looking!

Good experience,but improvement needed

My stay at Hollywood is good considering its location and price. The staff service is also good. But it will be better if they can provide shuttle bus from the airport to and from airport, it will be convenient if there is adapter available at the Front.

Great value

Although this is an older hotel it is very clean and the room is very comfortable. The staff was excellent. The complimentary breakfast was very good. You will have to pay to park, which is not uncommon in this area.

Los Angeles 25th Birthday Trip

I complained to the hotel staff the that room was too cold at night and she told me not to turn on the heat because my room temperature was based on the building. The next morning and evening I complained again and a guy told me he would provide me with one in a few moments. After I haven't received one the next morning, I complained again and a lady finally provided me with one within minutes. If you need to use your laptop there (I have MacBook), their wifi is really, really, really, really, really slow. Their paid parking system is a bit annoying. Please beware, they will charge you for using the room phone!!! They do have a pool and a sauna which I did not have time to check out. But they do have a little, nice workout room and pretty good breakfast. I would stay here again if it is in the summer time and I do not have to use my laptop.
