I read about the poor management reviews of the Vibe and decided to take my chances. The Vibe seriously screwed up my weekend - turned us away and forced us to search for a hotel in Hollywood at 10 o'clock at night. Seriously uncalled for.
I had scheduled a room a week in advance at the Vibe, and even called in during the middle of the week to make sure they had me down for the room. We were running late the day of arrival so I gave them a call to let them know we'd be there, but then I was told that our room had been given away and we were moved to The Orbit (sister hotel of the Vibe) on the other side of Hollywood!! I specifically wanted the Vibe because it was within walking distance of a festival we were going to. We never received any phone call about the change and were told that they had no paper work for us. We straight up told them that this was bad management and insisted that we receive a free night for the mishap. Free night was out of the question and we were in fact turned away and told that we were not welcomed!
We stayed at a miserable hotel on the first night (The Townehouse on Sunset), and then stayed at Magic Castle on Franklin Ave, which was wonderful and I really recommend them if you want a comfortable stay. It's more expensive obviously but to have the quality and assurance makes the trip so much more enjoyable.
