Very nice stay
It's a cute hotel with old school charm. My room was very clean and I enjoyed staying here. Parking was $18 a day, and there's a really good cafe within walking distance that has coffee and pastries. The parking lot felt very secure and it is gated.

Hollywood location
Michael greeted me in a friendly manner. Cool, Hollywood bar off the lobby. Cafe for breakfast on the corner. Right in the heart of Hollywood. Needed something close by for an event the next day. Worked well.

6/10 Good

The property had a nice old hotel feel. The staff was friendly and the Edmon restaurant was very nice. There is a lot of street traffic and street parking is very limited. The hotel parking is $25 per night which seems very high given the overall amenities of the hotel.

10/10 Exceptional

The room was adequate though not spacious. Of course that is to be expected in an historic hotel. The bath was small be well equipped and had plenty of hot water. The biggest disappointment was the lack of a coffee maker or microwave in the room. There was a refrigerator which was nice to store the complimentary bottles of water which were welcome at bed time, but no way to make coffee or tea in the morning. This could be solved with a complimentary coffee/tea station in the lobby but they did not have that either. There was a coffee shop half a block down but who wants to get up, get dressed, walk down and stand in line at a coffee shop just to get your morning cup of coffee? We loved the restaurant/bar, the Edmon, attached to the hotel. We spent many a pleasurable evening under a heat lamp in their outdoor seating before heading to our hotel room. Too bad it didn't have breakfast! There was another good restaurant, Osteria La Buca, about a block away that I highly recommend. The coffee shop was a nice place to get a pastry and coffee in the morning but if you are looking for a more savory breakfast we didn't find it which was a disappointment for a diabetic such as myself. The staff were very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Overall a very pleasant experience.
