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.

Nice hotel

The Hollywood was very nice, clean with excellent staff and service. The Hotel is not in a great immediate neighborhood but not far from some pretty fun and nice little neighborhood places. Overall we had a great visit during the Rose Bowl.

Great place. A little pricey, but it's LA.

I travel a lot for both work and pleasure (i.e., with family) and have stayed in some really bad hotels in LA. -We're talking the kind where the doors don't lock and the place looks so dirty that you can't bring yourself to get under the blankets for fear of what lies beneath.... For the price, you can't beat this place. It has the safety and comfort of a nice hotel. BUT, here are some things to keep in mind: 1. You will pay $24 to park your vehicle 2. The pool is outdoors so if you have kids who like to swim at night, forget it 3. Breakfast was a strange experience- it is in the basement and set up in a disorganized way, given the amount of people who stay there. It took a solid 20 minutes to get food and a table. I like to get in, eat quickly, and roll out, so this really bothered me. Bonus: they have dry saunas you can use for free. My son really liked that.
