Excellent accommodationse
I was so impress with this hotel. What a beautiful hotel! It immediately reminded me of days long ago when Hollywood was starting to become known for its glamour. The photos of former Hollywood actor and actresses were wonderful to see and it made you if this walls could talk. All in all, my stay was great.

Do yourself a favor- Pass!
Ooof. What a rough ride. Between thin walls, internet that moved like dial-up circa 1994 (see photos), and a moldy smelling bathroom- I will never be staying here again. The customer service was also lacking as I raised these issues to the front dest and the guy who was working at the time couldn't care less.

My Trip
It’s a good area for work. I wish the hotel had GOOD COFFEE😩😩 & there isn’t a coffee place within walking distance 😢 Parking is very secure 🙏 BUT costs $18 A DAY😳😳😳 The Hotel is VERY cute. Nice lobby & I was greeted with a kind welcome. Decent room, CLEAN👍 The restaurant/bar is BEAUTIFUL & has awesome food. The vibe is totally cool. ALTHOUGH, one night I was looking forward to sitting at the bar BUT they were “allowing” a large group of “entertainment heads” to SCOUT the location. I’m in the business & understand scouts... YET I have not seen them have their actors run lines of a scene - taking up the entire bar. I moved to a table. I found it incredibly RUDE that The Edmon / Historic Hollywood Hotel allowed this to happen when THEIR PAYING customers were brushed aside & left to feel “in the way.” That was unacceptable. BUT there is an incredible restaurant on the same block that I decided to bring my business to ....”Osteria La Buca!” ~ total foodie place with excellent service ✔️🎯👍

Charming old hotel with helpful staff. The traffic on Melrose can be a little loud.
