I live across the street and had passed this hotel many times, always curious about it. Last week, we had a very bad storm for L.A, and my power was out for 2 1/2 days. I decided to spend one of the nights at the Hollywood Historic Hotel and really enjoyed my stay. We were in Room 225, a corner,...

I loved the location of this hotel, it was pretty close to everything, and an easy Uber ride to City Center. The staff was super nice, and the restaurant was very good. My only complaint would be the bathroom, which didn't have any shelves or anywhere to put your stuff. The view I had was of the Hollywood sign. If...

Had a great time, staff really helpful and friendly. Didn't get to see much as I was there to visit boxing gym and train but would love to go back and see more and would stay here at this hotel again as it seems quite close to things. Good advice to download the uber app as taxis were terrible but...

The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating. As LA is very spread out, I thought this hotel was in a pretty good location right near to Paramount Studios!! We even had a distant view of the Hollywood sign. However there wasn't many places to eat nearby so eat out before you head home! The room itself was a good...

We only stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Fantastic value for money. The rooms were exceptionally large and were not expecting the amount of space we had which we were extremely pleased with. Only downside was that the room was so cold on our diet night but we then asked for a heating which we were given for the...

Compared to all the other low-budget options out there, this hotel is a head above the rest. The historic building is charming, potentially eerie if you're into adventure, and has a very classy bar / restaurant by the front lobby. The rooms are clean, carpeted, and spacious. The bathrooms, however, could use an upgrade, and the towels should be replaced....

Ideal stay to get a true taste of Hollywood. The atmosphere was amazing - loved the pictures, the old-fashioned elevator, and the appearance of the room. Such a break from boring modern US hotel chains!

I stayed here for 2 nights during Christmas vacation and found the hotel very close to many areas around Hollywood. Got 3rd floor king size room there was lot of renovation going on and it was smelling paint all the time. Thankfully rooms were clean. The AC will only cool so need personal heaters. There is a new restaurant near...

This historic hotel has a small elevator (worked well, and at least they have one). The room was large enough for our needs, the bathroom has been updated, the water was hot, and the bed was comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. The lobby has several chairs and a few small tables nicely spaced. Many photos of movie actors from...
