We had 2 nights here. Firstly, the location is good and bad. The good - It's a short walk to Hollywood & Highland shopping mall, and the blvd and chinese theatre etc. But if you're driving, it's really challenging to turn left across N Highland Ave. So it may appear to be a good location for Burbank and Universal etc, but you turning left out of the hotel is IMPOSSIBLE, you'll need to turn right and make some u-turns etc.
The breakfast is the worst I have experienced in a hotel. It is what I expect at a cheap hostel. The cereal dispensers were blank, and the juice wasn't real, it was some sort of re-constituted liquid that was full of fillers and sweeteners. The cutlery is flimsy plastic, and the bowls are polystyrene. At about 9.20am, another guest asked if there were any more scrambled eggs, and was abruptly told that no there wouldn't be because breakfast is almost finished.
The place just feels cheap and tacky. Oh and the most annoying thing - the rooms at the front, facing N Highland... the windows have lights shining UP ONTO THE WINDOWS. Okay this might look pretty from the outside, but for sleeping!? Really!? This was super annoying. We had to use hair pins and clips to secure the curtain so that we could get the room to be dark.
Oh and additionally - there was a sign in the bathroom stating that if you used face towels for removing cosmetics, you would be charged $9.50 because they would be considered damaged. Okay then... I understand that, but again it was tacky. I've stayed at many hotels, and have never seen a sign like this.
