I had high hopes for this hotel, and even left another hotel in the area one night early in order to give this one a try. That was a mistake. For the same price (perhaps even a little less), the other hotel was MUCH nicer. The staff at Esplendor were great, but that's almost all it has going for it. The location in Palermo Hollywood is perfect for going out, but if you have a car with you, the busier area means parking is nearly impossible.
The room was big (much larger than average hotel rooms), but it was dark, dusty, lacking in decor, and uncomfortable. I was surprised by the dust was on the shelves, lamps, bed frame, etc. The bathroom, however, was the worst. The tile grout in the tub and along the shower wall were covered in black mildew. I was afraid to even stand in the tub with my bare feet. My reservation was only for one night, but had it been for more, I would have left right away.
Breakfast was fine with pastries, coffee, etc. And "scrambled eggs" are available upon request, but they're terrible -- seemingly microwaved, with some tough bites and some underdone.
In short, I had heard good things about this hotel, and had high hopes, but I would never stay there again.
