Good hotel. Price is outrageous. 299 to 399 a night! Pretty hotel , until you see the sign on wall about mental health office is on the basement level? What is that about? Also you share a balcony with two other rooms. Plus my balcony door was opened when we walked into our room!! Can't say anything about the free breakfast because we never tried it, but I hear it's good. I want to give this place another chance but the price is keeping us away. Great location to great spots in LA. Close to downtown, universal studios, Observatory, Hollywood...


Practice your comedy sets Friday nights starting at 7pm. Run by awesome dudes, buy a drink to keep it going.

I stayed for a night because I was planning on working late in LA and didn't want to fall asleep.
This place has so much potential to have received a better review from me, but fell short by lacking in certain areas.

The first time I called to book a reservation, the system was down, but the associate provided me with a confirmation number and said when the computers were back up, I'd receive an email. I never received an email, and when I called to check, they couldn't find the confirmation number. And then gave me a different price than what I originally booked it for. Annoying but not a deal breaker.

Check in was easy. Park in the back for $22 with in and out privileges, done. Not cheap but convenient and plenty of spaces.

The 3rd floor was undergoing some cosmetic renovations. The walls were scrapped in some areas, and others were painted and done. For some reason, the hallway outside my room smelled like onions. Or Subway. So glad the odor didn't leech into my room.

My room consisted of a single queen bed, a hanging clothes rack, luggage rack, desk, chair with ottoman, and a cabinet hiding a fridge, safe, and microwave. This used to be a studio apartment by the looks of it. Comfortable, nice clean linens, and a clean bathroom other than some peeling paint under the sink.

The pool was small, but nicely done. There's a nice sized deck for sunbathing, and the pool was refreshing and not over chlorinated. Two things stuck out to me. The shallow end was much shallower than advertised (it was not 3 feet tall) which could be a safety issue. This place also lacked a spa. It would have been nice to soak in a warm bath after a long day.

One of the other bonuses to the Hollywood Hotel is that they have a sauna. At least two of them. You have to sign up with the front desk, and they give you appointment times for 30 minutes. The sauna was nice. But I was the first one using it in the morning, and it was room temperature when I got in. I had to wait 15-20 minutes for the room to warm up before I was able to break a sweat. Frustrating.

The hotel does offer a breakfast buffet. It was quite good. They offer several a la carte hot and cold items, an omelet bar, and mini waffles. Even though the mini waffles were premixed, they were quite good and nicely done, soft on the inside, and toasty on the outside.

Overall, it's a nice hotel. I might stay here again, even though certain things didn't wow me.

First to Review

This place doesn't look like anything special from the outside. In fact, it looks like a real dump from the outside, but you'll be pleasantly surprised when you go inside. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the hotel, which used to be a Ramada Inn, has been recently renovated. Breakfast is included with your stay, which is always nice, and the lobby looks like a luxury hotel. You're right on Vermont Avenue, which is close to everything if you're not afraid of a little bit of a walk or taking public transportation. If you have a car you'll be minutes from all that LA has to offer!
