Positives: close to metro. Awesome breakfast.. waffles and omlettes everyday! Nice courtyard. Friendly helpfull staff. Rental cars on site.
Negatives: I specifically asked for a high courtyard renovated room. (From other comments on trip advisor) however they put us in a road room. I complained and told them but they had not kept my note on file. They moved us to courtyard room. However it was not renovated. They also charged us twice which put our account in overdraft. This took 12 days to refund us back... as they wouldnt put a credit through and we had to wait for the hold transaction to expire (useless). The areas a bit dodgey... a homeless man lives right outside. Rooms need renovated... they are a bit rough. Carpet in corridoors smells....
Ill let u decide but I wont be back.

We stayed at the Hollywood Hotel for 4 nights and found the hotel to be a bit far from anywhere. Having only a few days to explore the tourist areas, we had to catch a subway down to the main area. The hotel seemed to be in a bit of a dodgy area for a hotel we thought was in the heart of Hollywood!
The hotel itself was nice- comfy bed, good breakfast and amenities like pool and gym. Next time we will look for somewhere walking distance to restaurants, shops and tourist sites. If it was just a little closer to the main area we would have been very happy.

I stayed here in feb of this year and it was great! the only issue was many cab drivers did not know where the hotel was so we made sure we had the hotels card on us! apart from that it was great! free breakfast cooked by hugo was great, huge beds, great reception staff. Hollywood boulevard is a couple of stops on the subway and is so cheap!

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor and it was huge!

possibly the best hotel we have ever stayed in. the staff are really helpful upon arrival and throughout the stay offering to print us maps or directions to get to places and also offering advice on best places to buy things such as a suitcase as ours was broken from the airline! we paid a bit extra and had the junior suite, we booked it with expedia and when you book for more than 5 nights they give you 50% off the full stay! we were able to pay extra $80 dollars to stay in the hotel until 2pm on our last day, you were able to stay later than this but there was more of a charge. there was a jacuzzi in our room which was bigger than it looks in the photos and lovely to have in the morning/evening! The room was huge the only problem we seemed to have was with the fridge, the top row seemed to stay slightly cold whereas the middle shelf would freeze to ice! we bought lollies one day and they melted in here but other than that it was fine! there was plenty of storage in the room and lots of tv channels. the internet was a pain to set up at first as none of our devices wanted to connect but as soon as they connected it was fantastic throughout our stay, quick and always working! the vending machines were well stocked and the maids were fantastic at cleaning our room. the hotel rang us a taxi to go to the airport for us which worked out cheaper than where other companies had quoted us. breakfast was busy when we went down as we are not breakfast people we rarely went down for it but it was very nice when we did go down! there is a metro right down the road and the hotel offer tours aswell however we booked in advance with starline tours. we ordered food in one evening which was fab. it is an easy hotel to find with 4 huge signs around the front of the hotel, the waterfall is at the back of the hotel. it is secure with a watchman on the gate every day. our room was right next to the gym which was no problem except some guests find it ok to laugh, joke and slam the door at 6am in the morning even though the gym isn't meant to open yet and some evenings around 11pm the same thing would happen, other than that no problems. have uploaded some photos of the room as when we booked we weren't able to find any photos of the junior suite and we were on pins!

Breakfasts have been great - cooked to your preferences. Chef Hugo and his associates are customer friendly and their meals are delicious.

Front desk tries to meet all needs in a very professional, thoughtful manner.

The facility is very comfortable, clean and has great amenities, including its pool.

I have been a lot hotels with fewer stars but with better accomondations than The Holywood Hotel..., i would have rated with three stars because of useless internet and partly out of order fittness room (neither which couldn't be solved in ten days), the plumming was worn out and ventilation was loud with little or no effect...
BUT... The kindness and willing service I recieved from Gisel gives the hotel the last to stars in my rating.. Allways helpful, thinking for herself, ever smiling, involving and problemsolving.... She made up for all the dispointment I had in entering a four-star hotel barely worth three..
I will properly use the hotel again, if I go back to Hollywood..:)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good wifi connection..
