Neighbourhood
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.

This place is a must see if a Doors fan. It's right around the corner from Barney's Beanery, The Doors Workshop and another recording studio where they recorded "The Soft Parade" and "Morrison Hotel".

For the price in LA, for one night, this is okay. The other guests were friendly and it's cool Jim Morrison stayed there.
The rooms are small and we couldn't turn off the heater. We probably wouldn't go back, but I've been to worse 'budget' hotels.
