“Don't think twice - great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in June. Room and bathroom were massive, very comfortable beds, lovely pool area, lovely view from the room, exceptionally friendly staff and the free breakfast was yummy with both healthy and non-healthy options.

Location is great too - very short walk to Chateau Marmont, Pink Taco etc and the best hop-on hop-off bus tour in LA stops directly in-front of the hotel on the other side of the road. Hotel is also a 20 minute walk to Hollywood Bvld, which is a good way to burn off all the yummy Mexican food.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone looking for mid-priced accommodation in LA.

Nice hotel in a good location. A close to all Hollywood hills area sights and activities. Good comfortable rooms, well appointed, well serviced and maintained, although sound isolation from other rooms was marginal. Reasonable breakfast but crowded. Staff efficient but had limited personality, seems like just killing time until their big break into show biz. Unfortunaltely no 24hr room service, although an alliance with the local rib n grill is available up until around 1am. Im presenting this as a gripe rather than a problem as This is a hard area to critique because given the size of the hotel and the local restaraunts available and the vending machines, it is understandable that it could be redundant to have 24hr room service. Try explaining that to me at 2.15am after a night at the comedy store / house of blues, after a full day of sightseeing etc....LOL
PROS- location, comfort
CONS- Nil.

LA on a whole was no way what we imagined the images of glitz and glam which were constantly exposed to were few and far between apart from a couple of hours in Rodeo Drive.

Anyway the hotel was a gem room was clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view, breakfast was sensational......eggs, waffles, bacon, cereals, beagles plus there was a 24hr tea and coffee station.

Another bonus was the laundry room and as we had 8 days of our 16 day trip down it was so convienent and only cost 4 dollars to was and dry. Staff were hit and miss verging on condesending at times.

The best thing by far was the pool and courtyard area bliss!! A suntrap, beautifully maintained,
flowers cascading off every level.......just a quiet little spot for some time out!!

Location is advertised as central however since LA is just a jumble of boulavards and random streets im not sure its possible. Takes ages to walk anywhere from it resulting in taxi bills

This hotel is fantastic!! The rooms were beautiful; the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was included and it was good. I love to get outside to tan & swim as much as i can so i required a good pool area. Which this hotel has. It is stunning outside and looks lovely at night also. Room Service is actually from The Saddle Ranch across the road.. We had it 4 times in 8 nights because we fell in love with it. Still to this day it is my favourite restaurant. If you stay here you must eat there or just order in. This is a great location, although it is depending on what you plan to do while you’re in Hollywood. We spent most of our time on tours/at theme parks (which pick up and drop off at the hotel anyways) or on Hollywood Blvd (this is only a quick and cheap trip in a cab). I highly recommend this hotel to anyone that is planning a trip to LA.

Made reservations a few hours before arriving. Spoke with Lucy who was very professional and friendly. Gave us a room overlooking the pool and let us know that if we were not happy with that room she would give us a different one - we were happy! Beautiful decor, very clean, comfy bed, loved the Bath & Body Works products! Breakfast was wonderful - eggs, waffles, bacon, sausage, potatoes, bagels, pastries, yogurt, fruit, juice, coffee, etc....The prior evening we went for a swim which was refreshing and then a walk across the street for dinner to Saddle Ranch Chop House - a show all by itself! Everyone at the hotel was friendly and professional. Overall, would stay again!

Room Tip: Pool View!

This was my second stay at the sunset plaza. And as always, a delightful one.

Rooms: I stayed in a King Room. It was great. The bed was a great size, and a very generous amount of linen & pillows which I always find when staying in Best Westerns. For this particular property, it has a very boutique feel about it. The king room had ample cupboard space with an in room safe. Inside the cupboard there was extra pillows if needed. The rooms had a doorbell out the front which was a really nice touch. There is a small kitchenette with microwave and tea and coffee facilities with a mini fridge.
the TV is a very decent size with a good variety of channels and in house movies at a small fee. There is also a desk space, and a single seat sofa with foot rest. The rooms are very quiet, there is no outside noise. The air-conditioner. works fine and is simple to use

Location: You cant get much better. Located on the iconic sunset strip, the property is in close proximity to great shopping, great food and cool hang outs. The saddle ranch directly across the street is a must! Its a short car ride or taxi ride to the beverly centre and within walking distance of the shopping district on sunset strip.

The front desk will provide you with tour options and tickets. The breakfast is really great, and better than most hotel continental breakfasts. providing waffles, bacon, eggs, sausages, croissants, muffins etc. There is a single computer located near the lobby, which you can access the internet and print off documents etc. The staff are extremely friendly and welcome you warmly each time you enter the lobby. The pool area is great, and the laundry facilities even better. They have coin operated laundry for a very small fee, and they also have a dispenser which provides you with washing detergent.If you have no time to do your own laundry, never fear you can leave it in the laundry bag you will find provided in your room, take it to the front desk and they will do it for you providing you give them a tip.

Overall, I am an avid fan of best westerns, and this property never lets me down. its clean, its in a safe location and they provide all the amenities you need. The pool area is great, the rooms are a very generous size. This time around I stayed with my partner, but first time was with my family so it really suits all style of travel.

Sometime one wonders how a Best Western hotel can take on the Hyatts and Mondrians but this Sunset plaza hotel does it in style. Other than the simple stuff like not having room service ( I like many travellers am not too hot on this!) the rooms and toilets are excellent,very clean and have a nice warmth about them. If you are fortunate enough to get a room on level one then you will be happy to be in the surrounding tranquility of the heated pool. The location can't be beaten with the likes of the House of Blues and the crazy Saddle Ranch ten metres away. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful too. Certainly worth checking in to check it out!

Room Tip: Get one on level one and you can literally crawl out of your comfy bed in to the pool!
