Hollywood Hills Hotel
Ranked #152 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 17 November 2013

My girlfriend and I found this place on line and stayed there last week end for two nights. Our room was in the Hollywood Hills Hotel up the hill from the Magic Castle Hotel, where registration and checkout are completed. The property was a bit dated, but very clean and well kept with a beautiful very clean pool and was very quiet and peaceful although only a ten minute walk down the hill to Grauman's Chinese Theater and the center of Hollywood Blvd. I am constantly traveling for business and pleasure and have stayed in hotels all over the world, but I can honestly say that I have never experienced such an excellent hotel staff and customer service. My sincere thanks and appreciation to Nick, Monica, and all of the staff that went out of their way to see that all our needs were met, all our questions answered, and that we were satisfied with everything. I will definitely stay there the next time I am in LA, even if it is not convenient to the particular area that I am visiting. I would recommend this hotel to everyone, and will be certain to tell all of my friends about it.

Room Tip: Rooms in the HHH are the quietest as they are secluded up in the hills, but people that have difficu...

we arrived after a 14 hour flight to a wonderful greeting, even though we were very early, Lisa at the front desk made us welcome and arranged for us to be able to freshen up. the hotel is a bit tired but staying up in the hills and having the view of the LA skyline and the peace and quiet though only minutes from Hollywood Blvd was great, the pool area was fantastic and the Japanese restaurant a stroll through the gardens was a bonus.

the staff always made sure we were looked after and having a kitchenette was great, even when we left they wanted to know if we needed snacks for our journey, all complimentary of course.

for a budget priced stay in the heart of the action you cant go past this place.

Room Tip: if you dont mind a walk stay here if you are dependant on flat ground don't.

Hands down, this hotel has the best front desk and customer service of anywhere I have ever stayed. They go out of their way to accommodate. The morning free breakfast is perfect and casual. My 9 year old son loved the unlimited free snacks. We did not stay at the main hotel, but rather in the "hills" location. Upon check in, the friendly staff greeted us with sparkling lemonade in champagne glasses, which my son thought was the COOLEST THING EVER. He is still reading the snack list offerings to family members! Pros: it was beautiful at night, clean, and transportation was great about picking us up almost immediately when we called. Cons: It was VERY outdated, the curtains had big stains, and the carpet was old and dingy. When we arrived at 9:30 p.m. we self parked and the area was poorly lit where we had to walk to our room. Never being there, were were a bit nervous.
We would definitely stay again, but until the rooms where we stayed are updated, we would choose the main hotel.
This place should be VERY proud of the employees that provide GREAT customer service and an overall very pleasant experience. Thank you:)

Room Tip: Stay in the hills location for spacious rooms with a great city view, but know that it is VERY outda...

Booked HHH based on price, proximity to various L.A. destinations. Knew ahead of time about the funky arrangement to check-in and go back and forth between our room in the HHH and the front desk & breakfast down below – a steep 10 minute walk, so not practical for those who want more ease without driving. That said, our suite, while not at all elegant, was great, beds were firm, cable TV in living room and bedroom, free wired internet, very functional kitchenette, and a balcony and nice view of smoggy L.A. and the Hollywood hills, with a big breakfast and two pools, unlimited snacks, all for $204 including parking and tax. Five minute walk from depressing Hollywood Blvd. and all the glitz. Would recommend and stay here again.

Room Tip: City views are great from suites.

I want this place to stay a secret. It is small, secluded, and NOT ADA compliant due to the year it was built. It is close to everything, yet far enough away from the main streets. Stay here if you are tired of the corporate chains and loud, screaming kids!

Room Tip: Ask for the "City View"

Tucked in the beautiful hills, the hotel is private, safe, and quiet from the busy street/city below. Parking is easy w/ an assigned space and hotel is truly gated w/ a guard at night. Getting to Hollywood Blvd is a short walk down the hill so ideal location. Breakfast is nothing special, but a bowl of cereal and fruit does the job. The selection of fruit is wonderful from kiwis, nectarines, and tangerines but the bakery items were a disappointment. The website says they come from “one of the best bakeries in L.A” but tasted like over processed crap you find at every hotel. However, having 24/7 access to their list of complimentary snacks and drinks comes in handy.
THE ROOM: pictures online are enhanced. The rooms are old making them appear unclean and are in need of new carpet +fixtures. But the sheets were clean, bed comfortable, ac works really well, hot water comes in milliseconds, and it had a great powerful shower. Do now the walls are thin! We were awaken @5am by our neighbors = not happy. But the balcony with the amazing view makes up for all of this!! I will definitely come back.

Even though I have stayed here twice, the hotel itself is very average. The rooms are OK, but dated and a bit " worn", The staff is good. The location and views are amazing, though. We stay here if we see a show at the Hollywood Bowl. We always get a King City View and have been happy both times. each room has a balcony to sit out on at night and a kitchenette.You are easy walking distance to the walk of fame, chinese theatre and all the restaurants that area has to offer. Did I mention the view??? They have a shuttle that runs you up and down the hill if you need it. It is pretty prompt and the drivers are always very nice. A few tips: You are kind of up and away from everything when you are in your room, so make sure you bring up bottled water and a few snacks. Say yes when they offer you snacks when you check in. There is no store on site really. Keep some cash on hand for tipping the shuttle. It is part of the magic castle hotel which is at the bottom of the Hill so that can be a bit confusing. Take the reccommedations of staff for dinner and let them make reservations, they got us fantastic seats and reccomended good places both times . A shuttle will drop you about a street away from the hollywood bowl, and pick you up from the show....this is very convenient, but you must arrange it in advance.

Room Tip: A high up city view king suite will give you a view of the Hollywood sign and city lights
