This is a great hotel and has great breakfast. Only down fall was that the shower didn't get too hot. But everything else was great.

Excellent hotel, excellent location!

The rooms were very spacious and the balcony overlooked downtown LA. The hotel is located very close to a few great landmarks to see in LA such as the Observatory and Hollywood Walk of Fame. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The breakfast in the morning was AMAZING! Overall this is an excellent place to stay for anyone making their first trip out to LA!

good deal

Room on the first floor was comfortable except that all the noise in the hallway could easily be heard. Otherwise, the stay was very comfortable, and the location was great.

Best kept secret in LA

I couldn’t sing the praises of this hotel more. Yes, the area that the location is in isn’t the best… but where in Hollywood is? Its about a 10 minute drive in any direction to get to the major hotspots (or a $8 Uber ride that are about a 4-min wait anywhere in LA). When we checked in, the staff was pleasant, helpful and prompt. The parking is additional, but thats typical too. But for the safety and the security, Ill gladly pay it. Its a large private lot that is lovely with fountains and plants… and a guard 24/7. The rooms were spacious and clean. It appears that they have all been renovated recently. Comfy beds, beautiful marble bathrooms. The hotel itself is pretty cool. The morning breakfast is a huge savings and really good. An omelet chef is there every morning making made-to-order omelets and scrambles. Waffles, sausage, fruit, pastries, cereal, juice, coffee and tea also available. There is an open-mic comedy show in the evenings thats kind of fun too at the bar. But above all else, the courtyard is straight out of a movie. Twinkle lights, wicker furniture, a nice breeze and fountains, its a little slice of heaven. There is a pool as well but we did not partake. I have already told all my friends, hands down, best hotel at the best cost you can find. I gambled and glad I did.

Great location

Perfect place to stay if you want to be close to Los Felix, Silver Lake, or Echo Park. Very nice breakfast, great pool, and comfortable rooms. My room had a small balcony that faced an open patio area with fountain -- charming! I come to LA often, and I will definitely stay here again!

Good option if not picky about location

I stayed here due to the relatively inexpensive cost per night. It's worth checking out if you need a decent hotel in LA but exact location is not a key factor (it is not close to Universal Studios or any other particular LA location for that matter). Overall, a great price.
