“Great location... Rooms were poor, dark”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

I stay at the Loews all over the east coast. Florida- Miami, Orlando. They are the best!!!
This Hollywood Loews is not Loews quality. In fairness, they are renovating. The rooms were way too dark, and the air quality was terrible!!
I don't know if I'd stay here again.

Stayed November 2013, travelled solo

We were in town for a concert and chose to stay here based on previous experience. The renovations that were supposed to be finished a month ago were still ongoing which made it hard to actually get into the hotel! We had the cheapest room type and it was modern, spacious and spotlessly clean - the bathroom was also very nice and well lit. Hollywood is kind of tacky and touristy but we did know that in advance. If you just walk a little way there are plenty of places to eat. The attraction for us was the metro station just a few minutes away - getting around LA is easy and cheap and much better than the terribly congested freeways. We went to the LA Sports Arena and came back late at night and felt perfectly safe. The valet parking was rather pricey, the Hollywood and Highland garage is much cheaper.

I have mixed feelings towards this hotel. It was getting building work done in the lobby area when I arrived and the building noises as you moved through were ear shattering. The reception desk as such had moved up a few floors but you can enter that level via the Staples center directly from next door.

We parked in the Staples Center which was significantly cheaper than the valet parking so keep that in mind. The room when we got to it was great. The bed was actually one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in, possibly in my life. The room was huge, with couches etc and a great TV. Safe was a little bit small in the wardrobe.

The bathroom had an unusual layout. The first bathroom door brings you in to a carpeted sink area with a makeup table. Through a follow on door you reach the shower/toilet.
I checked out a bit early and we still got queues but the staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful.

The location of this hotel is fantastic for touring Hollywood as its a great central base.

Considering the cost, I seriously have to way up my options of staying here again. The only thing that would really swing it for me would be the comfy bed.

Room Tip: High floor facing Hollywood sign.

Enjoyed a stay at Loews for a conference. The rooms are well appointed with comfortable beds. I had a nice view of the Hollywood Hills. Staff was friendly. Parts of the hotel are under renovation. Great location to walk out of the hotel into the heart of Hollywood.

Stayed October 2013, travelled on business

Visited this hotel 3 weeks ago....greeted by friendly staff at the desk. ...decided to share a room with 3 other friends...probably not such a good idea as the rooms are average size! and the beds are nowhere near double! I have previously stayed in hotels in various locations in the States and the beds have been bigger. Having said that, room was clean and nicely arranged. We did have to continuously ring down for more towels and pillows etc. You would think that they would be aware that there is 4 of us in one room and therefore we will need alot more then 2 towels! After asking the staff to maybe get a bigger room, as we were not expecting the conditions to be so "cramped" the lady couldn't help us so instead offered 'free wifi' in our room. Now initially i thought this was a bonus and that you needed to pay for this in your room, but having read the guest manual it actually stated that WiFi is free! ...now as you can imagine, i wasn't best pleased with this. Being tricked into believing the hotel were doing me a favour, when in fact its free anyway. Having said that, beds are comfy, and the renovation work makes the hotel look very un-tidy. You have to pay extra for Sauna/steam room and the pool could do with being a little bigger.
Concierge team are brilliant! in particular Chris and Verity. They will give you the best places to visit. Chris recommended to do a horseback ride in the hollywood hills and i can honestly say that this was the most amazing experience in L.A! would recommend this to anyone visiting!
There is an amazing view of the "hollywood sign" from the hotel. To get the best pics, i would advise walking towards the shopping centre below and walking back up to the bridge. For security purposes you are only allowed to go a couple of floors up in that area and security will not allow you to go right to the 3rd floor (where you would get an even better pic with the sign in the background)
Walk of fame is just outside the hotel...with plenty of shopping and eating places. Would recommend 'Mel's diner' which is 5 min walk from the hotel and "I-Hop", which is about 10 mins walk from hotel. Two of the best breakfast places that do the best pancakes in Hollywood!
The shopping centre is right under the hotel. very convenient and plenty of Bus tours going on across the road. Jimmy Kimmel studio right across the road too. If you queue up nice and early you may get given tickets to be in the audience.

Overall location is perfect! service can be improved in certain areas and the hotel once renovated i am sure will look much better then it was when i was there. But then you have to think about how much time you would actually spend in your rooms? If location is more important to you, then this is the hotel for you as you wont be spending that much time in your room like me.....but if you love spending your time in the hotel and using all the facilities then i would suggest going elsewhere.

Fantastic hotel, central to Hollywood and all attractions. Staff were very accommodating even though we turned up at 11am way before the check in time of 3pm. Although there were renovations going on at the hotel that did change our view of the hotel. The updated rooms were great. Massive bathroom, and excellent water pressure unlike some other hotels...We had just come from the Hilton Miami Downtown and this hotel was much better than that. Free Wi-fi was a bonus and seemed to work all around the hotel. By far this hotel was great value for the price... do yourself a favour and stay here... we had stayed at the hollywood celebrity on previous occasion and Loews was certainly worth the small extra cost.

Loews Hollywood Hotel was a perfect choice for convenience, cleanliness and overall ambience in LA.
It was only by chance that I chose this hotel, and I'm so glad I did.
The location is awesome- safe, choices for dining at your doorstep, staff are lovely and price is fantastic.
Rooms are beautiful and clean.
I couldn't have asked for more.
I will DEFINITELY be staying at Loews again.
