1. Re: Area Around Hollywood Hotel

I'm assuming that mean the Hollywood Hotel located at 1160 N. Vermont Av. Is that right?

The hotel is on the edge of Hollywood City Centre. It's pretty quiet near the hotel which is in between a hospital zone' and a local college campus. There is metro rail access adjacent to the hotel which will transfer you to central Hollywood in a few minutes.

There is also a bus stop nearby that will take you to Beverly Hills (25 minutes) and onto the west side (Santa Monica -- a beach community -- a total of about an hour away).

The theme parks are very spread out. Only Universal is near Hollywood;

Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure and Knotts Berry Farm are in Orange County to the southeast of Los Angeles -- about a 90 minute transfer via public transit. There are also tours to these Parks or you can hire a car.

Six Flags Magic Mountain is to the north of Los Angeles. It's more difficult to reach via public transit but, again, there are tours to the Park or you can hire a car.

There are hundreds of attractions in the city of L.A. Hollywood has just a few of them (and the Park, as I mentioned, aren't even in the city of L.A.). Our TOP QUESTIONS BOX to the right has a lot of info about local attractions as does the green bar running across the top of this page.

The Hollywood Hotel is a decent choice. It is a few minutes from the center of Hollywood but it's a 3-star hotel compared to the Orchid Suites which is 'in the middle of it all' but is only a 2-star.

Here are reviews of the two hotels:
