Not a bad place for location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Information was not same as I reserved"
When I booked my hotel, I was looking for a hotel with breakfast!! But the hotel had no breakfast for free. That was not on the website!! I did not like that. I would get different hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful family getaway"
We enjoyed the "old Hollywood" ambiance. The movie star memorabilia & old Hollywood movie stills were ever present, giving us a feeling of stepping back in time. The cafe's hours are so convenient & it was nice having dining available on the property. We have stayed here before and will do so again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location."
Great hotel. Perfect location for the Hollywood area; walking distance to all the good bars. Plus, Cafe 101 is a good spot to get a night started or recovery from the night before.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very Hollywood! Loved all the photos on the walls!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place near the Walk of Fame."
great memorobilia!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable comfort in Hollywood"
After a long day of traveling, this hotel was the perfect place! The staff were very helpful, helping us with the self park and directing us to dining options within walking distance. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable, and the shower was awesome!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were here just for an evening as we had a late-night event to attend. We were checked in quickly, the staff was all very polite and helpful. Our room was well-decorated, very clean and inviting and smelled lovely when we got there! The wifi was easy to use, and fast (which is a rare thing for free hotel wifi!). The only downside at all was the noise […] level. We were there for about ten hours, and even with the windows closed, we heard someone fighting in the parking lot, a man screaming at the top of his lungs, construction noises from somewhere nearby, along with the usual traffic noises for the area. Besides being noisy, the hotel was lovely and we would definitely stay there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy in Open Hallway Building"
I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the past 2 years. This was the first time I stayed in the open hallway building with the pool in the middle. They were doing room construction and it was very noisy starting at 7 am when they started cleaning the pool. The open hallways in the building make each voice carry which added to the noise levels. […] I would not choose to stay in this building again. Normally 7 am is not a bad time to get up but we were in LA for a late night concert event the previous evening so a 7 am wake up time was not part of the fun getaway plan.

Convenient location. Clean and comfortable rooms. Negative: NOISE due to single pan windows, thin walls between the rooms, and the air conditioning unit in each room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hollywood get away"
Very friendly staff & hotel was nice & clean. Liked the restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, comfortable, and great location!"
This was a great location - 2 blocks from the Pantages - easy to find off the freeway. It was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. It's slightly retro but that made it fun! Plus everything has been updated and the rooms were very nice. Great and large shower! Very good service. The attached coffee shop was a total treat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great coffee shop!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Price Is Right Getaway"
Amazing...we loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, very friendly personnel. No breakfast is a minus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There were 3 of us in a queen room. I was surprised by the size. Double sinks in bath. Huge shower. Mini kitchen with frig., microwave& coffee maker. Beds were comfortable. The air conditioner was the usual average for an in window type. There was a vibrating hum from either roof air/heating system. We were on the 4th floor in the older building. It […] was renovated. The valet service was fantastic and quick The cafe on the premises was great. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel for the price and area. Parking was a little sparse if you did not want to valet park. Staff was very helpful and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A bit worn, but comfortable, and a great value."
Great location, large room. Older hotel. Comfortable, but a bit worn. Fantastic service and staff. I *did* get find a bloodstain on one of my shower towels (luckily before use), but… it ain't The Ritz.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"easy on/off the 101, hollywood/vine & sunset close"
Good place if you plan on sightseeing most of the day. Parking is on hotel property - a good thing! Vallet is easy. Cafe is pricey. Interesting deco - old movie stars photos with autograaphs on every inch of walls. Within walking distance of start of walk of stars, hollywood & vine, sunset strip - and all those kinds of places - but a bit sketchy especially […] at night to get over there, walking. I wouldn't want to walk by self at all, and walking around & under 101 bridge to get to above places is the sketchiest part - you see all types of people --- just be aware of surroundings of course. Didn't use the pool, no time. Guys at front desk were very helpful, vallet was fast & friendly. Ice on 3rd floor & maybe 1st floor only. No hair conditioner - bring some! Didn't feel good barefoot on carpet in room, maybe bring socks like I did? No safe in room. Glasses are wrapped styro - no glass (in case you've heard THOSE horror stories.) Not bad - just remember it's an older building. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is one of my favorite hotels in Hollywood. I love to stay here when I am on business. Valet is affordable and efficient. The front desk is very friendly. My only disappointment this time was that the 101 Diner was under renovation so I missed eating there, but I look forward to the renovation being done and visiting next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great for us. We were able to park the car and walk to Hollywood Blvd for sightseeing and our tour. We were also able to walk to a GELSON'S Supermarket just up the street for grocery items.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely worth the price"
I stayed at this hotel with my two daughters to be near Universal Studios. Though the hotel was a bit old, it met our needs in every way. It was easily accessible from a major highway, clean and comfortable. It did take me a second trip around the block to find the entrance to the parking but that was no big deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Hollywood atmosphere"
The elevator is very small for oneself and luggage. That was my only criticism of this delightful hotel with its excellently friendly and helpful staff. The adjoining restaurant is also convenient and very good, bearing in mind that I am from San Jose where the restaurants are usually dreadful city and region wide at all levels. Avoid the Portobello […] burger however. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple and Retro"
We were surprised at what a cute Old Hollywood-themed hotel this is. For a fair hotel rate, we stayed one night in order to catch a concert at the nearby Greek Theatre. Rooms aren't huge, but spacious enough and clean, beds are comfortable, and there is free wifi. The bathroom in our hotel room was enormous, nearly the size of the room itself! There […] is a diner/restaurant on premises with an honest-to-goodness counter. The food is expensive, but fairly good. There are pies in the case, which made me feel like I was in a 1970s movie. Staff was friendly and professional. Old Hollywood posters and autographs line the walls, with some interesting personal items from silver screen actors, such as a cancelled dues check for the Bel Air Country Club for $67 from Jack Haley, the Cowardly Lion from the 1960s. If you like kitsch, you'll dig this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place close to everything plus the 101 diner"
Great place to stay close to everything and the 101 diner is fantastic. Walk to Hollywood blvd, the Bowl and many other spots.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good, but not great"
Hotel was clean and had a fun, nostalgic decor, but was set in a bit of a corner. Most Hollywood touristy sites were a short walk away. We were in town to see a show at the Pantages. Walked there during the day, but would not walk back at night. Cab was only $5 to get back though. I would stay there again, but not for more than one or two nights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hollywood Decor"
Was disappointed that the hotel wasn't closer to attractions. The area at night seemed questionable. There seemed to be a strange odor in the room. The service we received from staff very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A few things lacking...."
I arrived in LA the hottest day in over 100 yrs., and my room's AC had not been turned on...I'm very conservative with energy usage, but this was ridiculous. It was screamingly HOT all through the night as the AC never COULD cool it down enough. The pillows and bed were too hard and very uncomfortable as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for a long weekend trip"
Room was very clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Didn't seem to be much within walking distance, but a lot of attractions are just a short drive away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I use this hotel regularly when I go to visit family in the area. The facilities are old but maintained well. Good service. I really appreciate the friendliness so the valets who are always smiling and very courteous while hustling hard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First trip to Hollywood"
I think it was good for the price. We took uber most places but could walk to hollywood blvd and sunset strip, which took about 7-10 mins. It wasn't in the trendy area however but ok for a quick trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean room, spacious, friendly staff, excellent location, safe neighborhood, restaurant/bar in the lobby. Nearby grocery stores and restaurants. Nice 30 minutes walk to the Chinese theater. I strongly recommend to stay in this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Super satisfied. All personnel were very nice, cordial and accomodating. Rooms were clean and location was very convenient. The restaurant on the first floor (not owned by the hotel) was GREAT for breakfast and super convenient. Were very VERY satisfied with this hotel in every way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place for the Hollywood Bowl"
It was all good. I like bigger pillows so bring your own. I would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed our stay here, bathroom shower is spacious & has 3 shower heads, also the bed was very comfotable.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel minutes away from Hollywood Blvd"
Loved the Cafe below, staff was amazing we stayed for five days and our room was kept up wonderfully.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel. Very reasonably priced for the area. Close to many things, in the heart of the action and still safe and secure. Decor is super cool with Hollywood themed wallpaper and pictures, etc. Loved the aroma of the restaurant and bar downstairs. Always smelled great. The room is just a little tight for space, but still bigger than rooms in most […] of the hotels I stayed at over the duration of my California visit. Street traffic noise, but I loved it.

"Great spot. Would stay there again."
First off my favorite thing about the BWPHH was the 101 cafe. I loved the staff there. The food was good. Chocaolate cake in a jar was bomb. The hotel was in a great location. It was clean . The staff was very friendly and helpful. Also it's about 7-10 mins to the Hollywood sign. Great view. I will return to this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is within 2 miles of several attractions like Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles, Ameoba Records, the stars on the Hollywood walk of fame, the huge shopping mall in Hollywood, the Kodak Theater and El Capitan theater. The hotel also arranges for tours so you can book events through them. There is a nice cafe on site - reasonably priced. Parking […] is $15 with in & out privileges. The room was spacious and the hotel staff was very accommodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you're looking to avoid an LAX high-rise"
A great hotel. Rooms with corridors or rooms with balconies around the pool. We did not want to end our stay. It had everything... Coffee shop.. Laundry...pool ... mini kitchen...rooms with lots of space. No tub but a big shower area in a large bathroom. The people were great.. Always helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was old, no doubt about it. But it was very clean and I loved the Hollywood decor. Hundreds of black/white pictures of entertainers of past and present all over the place, even in your room. I loved the elevator doors and their Hollywood theme. The staff was great and went out of their way. I do like the fact that the cafe was in the same […] building. The hotel was tricky to get in and out of, but the valet service was especially nice. I loved our stay and will consider staying there, if I ever visit again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and convenient"
Overall, this BW is fine. Room was fairly comfortable and was clean. AC is noisy. Biggest problem: the closet is in the bathroom; very inconvenient! Lots of mirrors in the lobby, and the Hollywood theme is a bit overdone. Didn't use the pool or room service nor the restaurant, but all looked nice. Surprisingly quiet, despite being on busy Franklin Ave […] and near the 101. A bit pricey, but this is Hollywood. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Reception desk staff were very friendly and knowledgable about the hotel and area. Rooms overlooking the pool were painted in rather unusual colours, the hotel was comfortable and convenient. The bathroom was spectacular.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Place to Stay for a Visit to Hollywood"
Hotel is a bit of a throwback to an older style but rooms are comfortable and very clean. Rooms facing the street can be a bit noisy as this is a very busy area of Hollywood. Overall, though a good value for the money at Expedia rates - non-expedial guests paid $100 a night more for the same room!Genuine Expedia guest review
