Home is where the heart of LA is...;)

It's doesnt look like what you think. But the staff and the rooms are GREAT!! I had my own bed a nice tv,a mini deck area, and there was even an area where my friends could comfortably hang out while i was settling in my room. Its so perfectly centered to all the hot spots in LA tho a gas station/mini mart was kinda hard to find at first. I wouldn't have expected the service and room i got, but it was wayy better and anytime i fly back to the LA area, the Ramada Hollywood is the ONLY place i'll stay. Cheers

Take the metro to the major LA, Hollywood attractions. Don't miss Farmer's market, you need the metro. Outside area looks save. I liked the fact we could park inside the hotel parking for $12/day.

Price is reasonble

The continental breakfast is good .It would have been great if they could change the menu daily. The price is reasonable..location wise, its best to somehow fenced the hotel since the view opens up into the main very busy avenue.

Use the metro to your advantage! It is so much cheaper than a cab or renting a car.

I've enjoyed staying at this hotel!

I've read many reviews on this hotel andrealized that reviews are different depending on their expectation. I agree with so many reviews.. This is not the greatest, luxurious, fancy hotel... But this is the great for its location, service and room size. I would definately come back and stay at this hotel if I have a chance to visit Hollywood, Downtown or Korea Town!
