Small but very cozy

The staff was great. The room was very clean. The location wasn't the greatest but because we were in the courtyard view room, it almost didn't matter. The breakfast was great!

A very nice hotel

The Hollywood Hotel is well situated... Halfway between Hollywood and Downtown, with a short walk to the Red line which goes both places quickly and inexpensively. But don't overlook walking North on Vermont to the Los Felix commercial district. Our room was spacious, with a small balcony overlooking the very nice courtyard. Everything was clean and in good working order.. And having a refrigerator was a plus. Finally, the breakfast is very good, with the option of made to order omelets. A great place to stay.

Convenient and very comfortable yet practical stay

My wife and I came here with the main purpose of visiting our uncle who recently had a stroke so we just looked for a place that would not break the bank. We chose this hotel because the location is not too far from the hospital and some places/attractions we wanted to see during our visit to California. This was our first time in LA we basically used public transportation which is similar to Chicago but cleaner and better. This hotel exceeded our expectations! I could still feel the grandeur of this hotel back in the day before the 5-stars were even born. I rated this place with 4 stars for amenities because it's not a 5-star hotel. Overall, it's excellent. Thanks to the front desk staff and the crew. The complimentary breakfast was awesome! Thank you Hugo, Elvira, Sonia and other chefs for feeding us! I could have added more superlatives but I'm running out of time.

Poor hotel

This hotel is very basic. It's fine if you only sleep in room. Breakfast poor, parking v expensive for star of hotel. Worst part is area , lots of homeless. Only 1 block from metro which is one good thing about hotel, easily accessible to hollywood, downtown LA, and bus to go to Santa Monica. Wouldn't stay again , over priced

Nice place good stay but . . .

Location is very good, close to Hollywood and hospitals. Hotel was much nicer than expected, great decor, safe parking, excellent breakfast. But . . . Bad review of staff is because a few days after using my CC here (and only here) I had several fraudulent charges posted. My bank caught them and reversed all, but have to suspect that someone at this hotel accessed my card data.

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!
