Situated in the entertainment district, this hotel is within 1 mi (2 km) of Pantages Theatre, Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Capitol Records Tower. Dolby Theater and Hollywood and Highland Center are also within 2 mi (3 km).
Mixed bag but above average for affordable urban mPros: On site laundry with free soap, pool and hot tub, clean newer bathrooms, good colors and clean rooms, mini fridge and microwave, FREE parking. In room mini-safes. Great pricing. Not too bad noise-wise. Friendly staff. Cons: Beds need help.. "Slabs with springs" as my traveling bud described them. He is picky though... I can sleep on a boulder, but if you are picky about your mattress, you have been warned.
The lobby is VERY dated and belies the nicer property beyond.
A VERY draconian visitor policy (which is understandable in an urban setting to prevent prostitution or other issues... so can't blame them too much there).
But here is the BIG no-no: they PADLOCK and DEADBOLT their emergency exits from 5 pm to 8 am... a clear violation of fire codes. Disaster in the making.
Clean, great locationPros: Clean cozy room right in the heart of Hollywood & steps to the red line subway affording easy access to the rest of L.A. Friendly & helpful staff. Would recommend.
