This 39-room player’s primo West Hollywood locale puts you in the center of the nightlife action. Alternately, take in the scene from above on the Roofdeck, a 2,000-square-foot loungey hub serving small plates and cocktails, or chill out in your room, which is kitted out with modern must-haves like 46″ flatscreen TVs, espresso machines, fully-stocked minibars and that party-hard staple, electronic blackout curtains. The design? Black and white color schemes punctuated by pops of acid-bright color—think orange, lime green and purple feature walls and cushions—along with bathrooms sporting generous rain showers and bath amenities by Vive. When it’s time to hit the town, the concierge staff are eager to point to local must-sees, which you can visit on one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles.
In the Area
You’re in Hollywood now, kid, so don’t be afraid to embrace the camera-toting tourist within. Start by promenading the Walk of Fame, where names both legendary and obscure lie beneath your feet, then practice your Oscars speech at the Dolby Theater, the annual stage for the Academy Awards: during less sparkling seasons, visitors can do guided tours or catch various concerts. With obligatory LA celebrity moments behind you, it’s time to dig into that other quintessential Californian ritual, tracking down to-die-for tacos. Start your tortilla crawl at the Hollywood outpost of Loteria Grill, which serves up stellar tacos covering the spectrum from Yucatecan-inspired cochinita pibil (achiote-marinated slow-cooked pork) to vegetarian nopalitos (i.e. cactus and queso fresco). If fish tacos are more your jam, head to Silver Lake for some authentic Ensenada-style examples courtesy of chef Ricky Piña at Ricky’s Fish Tacos, whose crispy, crunchy, creamy tacos have a cult following. Then track down the legendary Kogi BBQ Taco, the Korean-Mexican hybrid that put star chef Roy Choi on the (mobile) map.
How to Get There
I made a mistake when booking on line regarding my reservation date. Josh, at the front desk, graciously, effectively, and quickly fixed my error with the agency and gave us the same discounted rate.
This was my first visit to LA and Josh offered great city hospitality.
One of the best hotels to stay at on sunset in the heart of everything. All walking distance beds shower and linen clean washed everyday great customer service! Would recommend staying here very affordable.
We recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel to visit Hollywood and Universal studio. The hotel was clean and in great location for our visit. The staff was also friendly. I also loved the blackout blinds.
The big issue was the noise at night, and we could hardly get any sleep. The hotel seems recently remodeled from a motel, it is very small and wall is paper thin. The first night, some neighbor was listening to loud music after midnight. The second night, some excited family probably just arrived, kids/teen were talking and running loudly in the hallway at 3am.
It does not have a pool and no ice machine in the hall. You need to ask the front desk for ice. Since the bathroom is really small, there is not enough shell space, you only get 2 shower towels. I can't understand how this hotel get a 3.5 star in Orbitz as it seems like an updated motel at most 2 stars.
I guess it is a good one for young travelers wishing to party and stay late in the night, and looking for location close to Hollywood. But I won't recommend it to family travelers looking for a good night sleep.
So they have great customer service with exceptional logistics. I would recommend my personal friends to come stay. There beds are comfy and the shower is awesome! Josh and other employees are very friendly :)
Me and my wife had stayed from 20th June 2018 to 22nd June 2018 while traveling from Toronto to Los Angeles.The hotel is good one.One of my friend is staying near this.So we have booked this in advance.it was comfortable.
