"Old Hollywood Glamour with a Modern Twist"

Centrally located amidst Hollywood, Downtown and dozens of LA’s best attractions, the Hollywood Hotel boasts old charm with modern amenities. Driving up Vermont Avenue the kids and I were overwhelmed by the depths of southern California traffic and urban city life. Skeptical of what we would find we were overjoyed when we stepped into the peaceful hotel and a touch of the glamour of old Hollywood.

Our favorite things…..
• Décor. Recent renovations provide a modern twist on the glamour of old Hollywood.
• The pool. A mini oasis in the bustling city
• Easy access to Los Angeles sites and Metro Line

Challenges….
• It does not look like much from the outside
• Street facing rooms are noisy, but do have great views of the Hollywood sign

POOL
The pool is petit and located off the parking lot. That said, it is nothing short of FABULOUS. Once inside the gate you are transplanted to mini oasis in the middle of the loud city. The wide yellow cabana stripes, Spanish tile, palms, ferns and greenery melted my cares away. I lounged on a thickly cushioned recliner and opened my book while the kids made quick friends and enjoyed cannonballs into the deep Spanish tile pool. Water and towels were at the ready and we enjoyed the afternoon. Faux grass adds green and enhances the oasis feel. A mix of chic and old Spanish luxury.

GUEST ROOMS
Beautiful. Newly renovated rooms are Hollywood chic. Each element of the design reflects a take on a hexagon. From the honeycomb hallway carpet to the Moroccan tile print drapes. Even the ceiling tiles carry the shape. Our room was bright and light with gorgeous herringbone grey wood floors. A street map of old Hollywood hung on the wall and the grey and black color scheme was clean and fresh.

Two queen beds and a chair provided a quaint space for our family of four. The “dresser” doubles as fridge and safe storage so there is little room to unpack. We had to keep our bags packed.  

The bathroom was the biggest surprise of the room. It felt more like I was a guest in a home and not a hotel. Black and white hexagon tile cover the floor and stand-up glass shower. A showerhead from the ceiling was the perfect final touch.

Gorgeous views overlooking the city and iconic HOLLYWOOD sign. Some rooms have balconies and not all look out over the sign.

AMMENITIES
Free wifi, in-room safe, coffee maker. Workout room, steam room and sauna.
Courtyard bar with manager’s happy hour.
Free kid-friendly continental breakfast with waffle and omelet stands. My kids loved this. They ordered waffles in the shapes of teddy bears and drank all the juice they could stomach.

PARKING
$26/day for self park in a guarded gated lot. My car felt secure in the otherwise questionable neighborhood.

SURROUNDING AREA
Proximity to the sites is one of the hotels best features. The hotel itself is in an urban neighborhood, but across the street is a metro station and it sits within several miles of ALL the iconic Hollywood sites my kids wanted to see. We spent the day exploring the La Brea Tar Pits and grounds and checking out art at LACMA. For dinner we chose Hard Rock Café located next to the Dolby Theater on the Walk of Fame. My kids loved seeing the stars and looking at hand and footprints. To our surprise there was a red carpet movie premier at the Chinese theater and we had an opportunity for some star sightings. Steps away are the famed Wax Museum, El Capitan Theater, and Disney Studio Store and Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop. Next time we go we will visit Griffith Park and take the short drive to Universal Studios Hollywood and enjoy the attractions of City Walk.

We are looking forward to going back and exploring more of the famous Hollywood sites.

HISTORY
The original Hollywood Hotel was built in 1903 and stood at the current location of the Dolby Theater. It was used in movies and was the place to see and be seen. The original building was demolished in 1956 and the hotel relocated several miles away. The hotel strives to maintain the historic legacy and charm of  this famous hollywood landmark.

This review is based on a complimentary visit to the Hollywood Hotel. I received no other compensation and these opinions are entirely my own.
