A Place To Sleep

This is a great place if you are looking to "sleep" somewhere. The hotel is clean enough. There are no amenities - not even an ice maker on the premise or a phone in the room. The café featured in on the website was not what we expected. We were hoping for a traditional pancake and egg breakfast - it is not. Parking was free and easy. Location was an easy drive to most destinations. Not a place I would want to stay had the children been with us.

DUPED! Not provided with the NON-SMOKING room I was promised

I had called weeks ahead and the night before to be assured a NON-SMOKING room. The evening I arrived, I was informed that they simply did not have any left despite my reservation and no apology or compensation made...Windowsill was filthy with cigarettes:(

Non-Smoking NOT guaranteed

My initial request were for a non-smoking room and I had not received email confirmation, and nobody answered their phones at all hours. I called booker the day before to reconfirm and they conferences Michael who advised that they could assure me a non-smoking room (very important due to allergies and health concerns). Upon arrival the next day he said they were sold out, and are a 50% smoking room. Made no accommodations or apologies for putting us in a smoking room with fresh cigarette butts on the window sills even. Upon check-out the next morning I informed the manager Betty, and she said to ask for her next time to supposedly guarantee a non-smoking room. I have no faith in that promise as it had already been broken once. The location was ok for the price, and parking free, but not worth the frustration of dealing with a switcheroo after a long day of travel with no compensation or genuine remorse.

Like going back in time

The place is really cool, 1920's looking and it's like going back in time, rooms are nice and clean. The only negative thing is the noise coming from Melrose Avenue, all night long, traffic in LA never stops. The staff is awesome, parking is a life saver and the location is perfect to get around Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

I had a blast!!!

I stayed at the Hollywood Historic Hotel this past weekend and I have to say that I had a really great time. I used to live in Los Angeles so I understand what the buildings and neighborhoods are all about... the location is a little shady at night, but I still felt safe. The staff were great!! I loved the door men, very helpful and pleasant. My room was great, I stayed in a corner unit on the second floor, it was very spacious and the King size bed was great, linens were clean... carpets were clean. The bathroom, although a little dated, was very clean and everything worked. There was a little mini fridge which was very convenient. The only thing that I disliked was there were no phones in the room, so I had to go downstairs each time I needed to talk to the front desk. But, it is a historic hotel, the electricity and plumbing are up to date so that is all I care about. I loved the design of the hotel, the furniture was fantastic and in great condition. I didn't find it very noisy, I was in the back of the hotel, not facing the road. But if you are gonna stay in a hotel on one of the busy streets like Melrose then the noise is to be expected. The price was great, the staff was great and my room was great.. I would stay here again for sure.

Decent for short term trip on a budget

Pros - parking included, internet included, location, clean except for the windows. Cons - Loud on the street side, surroundings (across the street) are a bit depressing, no in-room phone.
