Hollywood Historic Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We needed a place to stay for one night close to a party we were attending in the historic district of LA. It was quiet and the beds were comfortable. All the other hotels we looked at were priced at $200 + +, and we got a great deal for this on Orbitz for Saturday night. It is easy to get to Hollywood, downtown LA and the freeways from here. I wouldn't walk around the neighborhood and feel safe, but the parking lot was well lit and located right behind the hotel.

Priced less than other hotels in area. However, very dated and located away from restaurants and activities. Has own restaurant but doesn't open until 6:00 p.m. and closed on Sundays. Staff at desk was helpful with directions.

We stayed 3 nights in the Hollywood Historic Hotel. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

My stay here was great. I loved everything from the decor to the lay out of the room. The host, Hans, was great and so was practically everything else. I would definitely stay here again.

It is a historic landmark and a hotel experience from 1927 when it was built. A very nice new restaurant. Everything is smaller, like the 1920's. example, the elevator fits two people with one luggage each. Fun and very nice. Not a luxury hotel.

decent old hotel right on Melrose. near many Hollywood studios and attractions. only thing i didn't like was being charged for parking.

This was a great vintage hotel! It was beautiful and has some great history. You can see the Hollywood sign from your room! Close to Hollywood Blvd, paramount Pictures and Raleigh studios! Would visit again!

Calm quiet place to stay. Surrounding area seems shady, but the hotel was updated while keeping the feel of an old historic building.

Room isn't air conditioned, but did have a window A/C unit that we turned on immediately upon entering the room and it cooled down fairly quickly. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was small but it worked. Oveall, it was fine for one night but I wouldn't want to stay there long-term.

I loved the historic charm of this hotel! The rooms were comfortable and very clean but that's all the hotel has to offer. There was a tiny coffee pot in the room but at least free coffee in the lobby would have been nice. Its not a terrible neighborhood but its still Hollywood, and they are no restaurants around and the closet convenience store was a block away. It was awesome waking up every morning to the sight of the Hollywood sign out the the window!!

Great location for visiting Paramount Pictures and Larchmont Village. The room rate was a little high for no breakfast amenities although the parking was free and convenient. The check-in and check-out times were more flexible than most other places. The woman at the front desk was most helpful when asking about directions or places to eat or visit that would be interesting to see and experience.

just I wait for 2 hour for check in but thats fine

Excellent hotel to stay at with history and charm. Had a rental car, so was thankful for a parking lot. would stay again.

The hotel was clean and just down the road from Paramount Pictures. We were there during a summer hot spell but our room was comfortable with the window air conditioner. Staff were pleasant and friendly. We enjoyed all the classic photos which hung on the walls of the hallways on all the floors. We certainly felt like we saw old Hollywood! They are opening a restaurant adjoining the lobby soon and will have room service. That was the only thing we missed which will be a great addition to this hotel. We would recommend it and would stay there again.

it was shabby and not nice. the pictures and description looked good but it was lacking. Severly

It was OK. The area it was in is not as great I thought it would be but it's just a coulple of minutes away from Hollywood.

We are staying the night after attending a concert and this hotel was only a few minutes away. I really wanted to like this place for its historic value but I just couldn't. The rooms are extremely small and do not even get me started on the bathroom. I am a small woman of 5 feet tall and the toilet is literally facing the bathtub and my legs would not fit in the tiny space between the toilet seat and tub. Just too tiny all around.

This hotel is nice and one of the cheapest in Hollywood. You are walking distance to Hollywood Blvd. It is not the best area. It is fine if you just need a place to sleep and shower. The beds are not the most comfortable. I did like how old it was and the 1920s architecture.

Great hotel for last minute travel. The elevator was a little creepy, felt like we were going to get stuck- but we didnt. I would stay here again though.

This hotel is certainly historic. The closet is larger than the bathroom. But, the two less than ideal things were how thin the walls were, and how small the pillows were.
