After living in LA for many years, I have often found that it's hard to find a great hotel to recommend to friends/visitors that is under $200/night. But finally, this is the place!
At the last minute, we needed a place to stay in Hollywood near our apartment for one night. I called The Magic Castle (another GREAT place to stay in Hollywood) but they were booked and suggested their sister hotel, this one. And it was $50/night less expensive... which was perfect for us.
After booking the room, the receptionist asked if we were celebrating anything, and I told her our anniversary was coming up (but honestly, I hadn't thought of celebrating it that particular night).
When we arrived there was a bottle of wine with balloons, a card (hand signed and very sweet!) and a delicious little chocolate cake from Susina Bakery (a great LA bakery) waiting for us. It was unbelievably welcoming and awesome... and because of it, we decided to celebrate our anniversary that night with a nice dinner at Yamashiro! It was very romantic and fun. We never expected to have such a fun impromptu anniversary celebration!
Friendly/welcoming/professional/helpful staff... everyone included!

Secure (gate w/ code) and safe feeling
Sparkling Lemonade "welcome drink" in champagne glasses upon check-in
Late check-out was available... I checked out at 12:30 which was helpful
The room has a bit of "shabbiness" to it... some chipped paint, and a few imperfections. The decor isn't fancy or fabulous... BUT we did not care one bit because the service/location/view was worth so much more. The decor was easy to get over since we were enjoying the experience so much.
This hotel is an excellent value for the money... especially in Los Angeles, where affordable hotels in this price range are really hard to find.
