We stayed for 2 nights in November and definitely recommend for budget minded traveler/tourist and would stay again without hesitation. Great central location and great price. We had a rental car and parking is free and safe...we saw Mercedes and BMWs in the parking lot! The comments about the friendly staff are absolutely true, we were served by 3 different staff and all were extremely helpful. The lobby is lovely and the hotel has a great family owned history. We thought the old elevator was charming and worked perfectly.
The rooms are small, but had coffee maker and fridge. Our room was on the 3rd floor with view of Hollywood sign. The bathroom is aging and simple and sink very small, but really who cares...it was clean and water pressure and temperature were excellent. If you've ever been on a cruise the room and bath are of similar size. The bed, pillows and linen were comfortable, and air conditioning worked well. The mattress was sealed in vinyl which indicates either prevention or containment but there was no evidence of bedbugs...after reading the negative reviews I scoured the bedding and room and was relieved to find nothing and slept comfortably.
We loved the fact that you knew you were in Hollywood and not at a generic hotel. The old pix of stars were fun and nostalgic.
