Right where we needed it.

Location was good, however wasn't expecting the $150 deposit on top of $48 parking. Not the hotels fault, but would have been nice to get right info from the customer service department! Free breakfast was great, just wish the other amenities were open later, 8 pm for the pool and 10 pm for the sauna?? Didn't even get a chance to enjoy them. Overall hotel was good for what I needed it for, to get the greek theatre!

Wat Dong Moon Lek Noodle, trendy hole in the wall just around the corner, looks scary from the outside, but really hip and trendy on the inside, good food too.

A decent hotel for the price

Good location, as it is located very closely to the metro, if you don't have a car. Not a lot in the immediate area, but the metro is so close it doesn't matter. The staff seemed friendly enough, and the omelettes prepared by Hugo were a real bonus!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you fancy a nice hike, it is a good walk up to the Griffith Observatory (we did it) The views are stunning!

Great for visiting Hollywood

If you plan to spend most of your time visiting Hollywood, Universal, etc. this is perfect. The Metro is 2 blocks away and you can easily get anywhere. If you want to go to the beach, plan an hour drive. The hotel is nice for a place to crash and breakfast is good. The picture is actually the back of the hotel so don't look for that when you're pulling in.

Our Stay

The employees were very friendly, Loved the ladies at the front desk, all employees were very helpful. Was very clean for as old as the hotel was. The breakfast was very good, loved that there was a chef making omelets per your request. The only complaint was that the fan in the room was either off or on did work as a thermostat. So we would have to turn it off and on, was not convenient:( Also the towels could have been nicer, very old and not soft. Bed was very hard.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Leave your car at hotel and take public transportation, the parking anywhere you go is $20.00-$25.00 very high.

Good Value for the Money

We stayed primarily for a site visit to Raleigh and Paramount Studios for tours. Very convenient to both. There is a grocery store and plenty of restaurants near by and even an LA Metro stop. Close to highways (though best to avoid them if possible). 2 Queen beds were nice with fridge and microwave. Parking adds another $22 per day, so consider that in your price comparison. Hotel elevator slow, so best to stay on lower floors and take the stairs. Complimentary breakfast was nice with omelet bar and waffles, but not enough variety to keep it interesting for 7 days. Good central location if seeing lots of various LA sites, but about a 45 min drive to the ocean. Overall, a good value for a decent LA hotel if you are looking for something in a moderate price range.

Excellent overall experience

From the front desk staff to housekeeping staff to the quality breakfast each morning, this hotel exceeded our expectations. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable, with private balcony. Thanks for a great experience!

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!
