Get a one day pass for the train and it was take you to the local attractions. Saves on the hassle to parking and traffic jam especially at night.

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

Me and my wife visited LA in starting of December 2013. I was scared about the hotels in LA, but after review and all I decided to go with this hotel (Finger Crossed), and believe me nothing better than this can happen with me in Hotel selection. Really nice and helping staff, clean rooms, and perfect location (Near to metro station, as we were depends upon public transportation) , too good breakfast.

Nice hotel, a pleasant surprise

Check-in was a breeze. They have a large secure parking lot for $15 a day, which is, again, cheap for Hollywood. The hotel and the room were kept very clean and well-maintained, the staff was friendly, there was a sufficient amount of electrical outlets, and the other guests appeared to be respectable business people and tourists. I would have loved wi-fi in the rooms, but at that price I won't complain. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel and look forward to staying there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

This section of Vermont Ave is not the greatest but it's not unsafe either. Koreatown, Los Feliz, Silver Lake and a short drive away. There is shopping and dining within walking distance, along with several large hospitals (Children's, Kaiser Permanente, Hollywood Presbyterian) and there's a subway stop practically across the street.

Great Hotel for Price/Location

The Ramada Hollywood was a really great find!! Great rooms & comfortable beds & nice bathrooms. Having a microwave and a mini fridge in the room allowed us to beat some of the expensive LA prices for dinners by bringing back our leftovers for the next day. Convenient location in Hollywood, near some great Mexican eateries and a Rite Aid and some cool bars. 3 bad things: an expensive daily parking fee ($16+), the breakfast was the same e-v-e-r-y day, and uhhhh, the maids don't knock...
