Close by attractions/eating establishments/grocery store/gas stations/AND A RECORD STORE!!!!Genuine Hotels.com 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
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
It was convenient but our room smelled like an old barber shop and the bathroom smelled like arm pits. Other than that, the service was very good. The front desk accommodated for the disabled dad by getting us a room closest to the elevator.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our rooms was very comfortable. The bathroom have been renovated and are very clean. A good place to stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"MY DAUGHTERS GRADUATION VACATION"
OVERALL IT WAS GREAT...I HAD READ ALL THE REVIEWS AND I'M THE TYPE OF PERSON TO READ THEM ALL THEN JUDGE FOR MYSELF. #1- EASY TO FIND WITH GPS. #2 THE PARKING ENTRACE IS ON EITHER SIDE OF BUILDING. VALET WILL PARK ONE SIDE FOR YOU WHICH IS $15 A DAY CHARGE PLUS TIP TO VALET GUY OR GIRL. SECOND ENTRACE IS LOCATED ON THE OTHER SIDE WHERE YOU CAN GO THRU […] AND PARK YOU CAR YOURSELF BUT STILL HAVE TO PAY THE $15 CHARGE PER DAY BUT DONT HAVE TO TIP THE VALET PERSON ( NOTE : IF YOU DO PARK YOUR SELF BE SURE TO GET A PARKING TAG FROM VALET GUY ANYWAY TO HANG IN YOUR MIRROR.THIS TELLS THE PEOPLE YOUR STAYING IN THERE HOTEL. .....IT WAS NOISY FOR LIKE 5 MINTUES AFTER 2;30 AM ONLY BECUASE EVERYBODY COMES IN FROM PARTYING . OTHER THAN THAT ....I WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN ....FIVE MINUTES FROM HOLLYWOOD AND THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN . .........GREAT PLACE FOR THE MONEY..... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hollywood Hotel"
The rooms were extremely clean and the staff was very friendly. We stayed on the street side of the hotel which offered a view of the neighborhood . A small kitchen area with sink, microwave and small fridge was a huge plus. The retro look of the hotel was was really neat with memorabilia from film and TV stars everywhere including the rooms. The gem […] of the hotel is the 101 Coffee Shop which is on the premises. We had a variety of food from breakfast to dinner and it was all fresh and delicious. A great hotel for a reasonable price considering it's in Hollywood. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Hollywood"
Loved this hotel. It was big and bathroom was huge also. The beds are so comfy and the location is perfect if you wanna be close to Hollywood blvd. We were literally walking distance from the nightlife. I would definitley stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice place, too noisy."
Hotel has new and old sections. Although I recognize that the chances are about zero of this happening, I wish hotel had told me in advance about this discrepancy and given me a choice between the sections.. They did transfer me when I complained 3 days into visit of 4 days after 3 nights of disrupted sleep.. Cleaning staff conversations in halls was […] very loud and annoying. Some of the noise was related to inconsiderate, unaware behavior of guests, about which hotel can do little. I appreciated the fixed maximum volume control on the TVs. Front desk staff was very accommodating. Rooms are not reader friendly, i.e. a comfortable place to sit (not on bed) with adequate lighting. After first night I asked that very slow drainage of sink be corrected; This was not done. My room was not made up on one night. The "Do not make up sign" was hanging on the door knob. I did not place it there. The sign may have fallen to the floor and been picked up. Hotel is not within walking distance of anything. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hollywood location at a affordable price"
Just a few blocks away from Hollywood Blvd and the Walk of Fame. Pantages Theater just 2 blocks away. 1.3 miles to the Chinese Theater and a fun walk along the Blvd. Also close to the famous Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles! The 101 cafe downstairs was excellent for breakfast and they are open till 3am for the night owls. Hotel room was very comfortable […] and clean. Came with a mini fridge and a coffee maker. Bathroom had a odd layout but I think they were just working with the space available in a older building. Towels were super soft, not those cheap itchy hotel towels I see so often, and the bath toiletries were nice. Beds comfortable with tons of optional pillows. TV had cable and there was strong signal from the free wifi. Parking was tight but the valet was accommodating and we had no problem getting our car when we needed it.

"Fun pictures throughout"
I stayed at this hotel to be close to my daughter and help her move, so I wasn't doing the "tourist" thing. First problem was the signage at night was not apparant, so I couldn't find the hotel. Next problem was there was no direction on where to check in or where to park. I finally parked in a red zone, went up an alley and saw a small sign that said […] "Hotel Registration". I went in and asked where to park. The desk clerk was not friendly, told me to pull up the alley I just walked through, and his parking valet would come out and meet me. After I finally got to my room, I discovered the restaurant doesn't do room service, so I couldn't get a glass of wine after a long day of packing. I went to the restaurant to get a bottle of water and it cost $5.00. I finally got into bed and tried to sleep, but the noise in the hotel as well as the noise from the street kept me up all night. I understand it's the city, but do other guests really need to be slamming doors and shouting at 4:12 a.m.? I did enjoy looking at all the pictures of the stars, and the room was comfortable enough. I really liked the walk in shower. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Wonderful stay and front desk was very helpful in choosing sight seeing tours as well as directions to getting around West Hollywood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Used to be better"
Stayed at this hotel in 2010, during renovations, and absolutely loved it. This last trip, parking/valet was a nightmare. Having my car moved 3 times, unknowingly, is unnecessary when needing to get things in and out of it. Besides that everything went smoothly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms where clean and staff friendly. The hotel restaurant was very good. It was close to many of the must sees in Hollywood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the king bed was lumpy and uncomfortable to sleep in. the additional fees are ridiculous (daily re-entry fee of $5 to $10 per night)! the hotel is clean and the proximity to the 101 restaurant is convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not up to Best Western Standards"
This Best Western was double the price of the one off rt 55 in Newport Beach, but was half the quality. Rooms crummy, breakfast not included, and of poor quality considering the high cost of it. Also parking not included. I don't recommend it. Stay somewhere else a little further away, and take a taxi to Hollywood Blvd, if you must see it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is redone well enough. The rooms were nicely quiet, which was surprising. The only noise I heard was when people would roll their luggage across the balcony ways. The staff were nice enough. The entry from the parking is odd and inconvenient and there were smokers each time I went through, which was quite annoying. The theme-ing of the rooms was […] ok, not especially effective. Some of the furnishings incredibly dated, but the shower was big and nice. Having to pay valet for nothing was not great. I self parked and self-retrieved. The location is very convenient to everything. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice clean location, close to Hollywood attraction"
Nice clean hotel room. The hotel recently went renovation. We stayed in the pool area, and the size of the room was perfect. The bathroom had double shower and was spacious. The only thing lacking was not enough light coming into the room. The window was facing the indoor pool area, so we didn't get too much light from the outside (which made the room […] a bit dark at times)....but we weren't in our room much, so it wasn't a problem. The hotel has a restaurant attached to it. 101 Coffee Shop. The restaurant was very busy every morning but the food was delish. To get to hollywood walk of fame, you have to cross under the freeway (which didn't look all that safe at night), but there were plenty of light, so it wasn't too bad.

"Quaint little place with friendly staff"
We only stayed for one night and it was rather pricey but considering it was for a busy Hollywood holiday weekend; we stayed for Halloween weekend; it was great. it was close enough to the action that we walked down to Hollywood Blvd. I had booked a king size bed but there was an issue with booking so when we checked in, all king size rooms were sold […] out. The staff was very friendly and accomodating and they apologized for the inconvenience but set aside a nice 2 queen size room for us on their highest floor (4th) with a great view of the Hollywood sign. The room was clean, pleasant and surprisingly spacious. The bathroom was spacious as well - it had 2 sinks so my boyfriend and I didn't have to wait on each other. They have a nice little restaurant next door conveniently open til 3am. We didn't get to try it but it was nice to know it was there. The decor was really nice and as a movie buff, I loved waking down the halls looking at the memorabilia. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I would definitely stay here again.

"A 4 Star hotel with 5 star service"
It turned out to be an exciting stay. I would have to classify the hotel as a 4 star hotel with total 5 star service....even the Restaurant....Would go back there in a heart beat......Management is on the ball with every detail.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nothing fancy, but a good value"
The hotel was a good value for the popular Hollywood location. I'm glad we didn't spend more to stay someplace fancy, because for a single over night stay (and not a lot of time spent in the room) this was perfect. No big luxuries, but the room was clean and there wasn't a ton of noise from the street or other guests. Their little cafe is also a nice […] place to stop for a late night treat or a quick, diner-style breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient and comfortable"
Went to LA to visit family and this hotel was very convenient. Within walking distance of cafes, a bakery, grocery store, a mall, and the tourist area on Hollywood (Grauman's Chinese Theatre, etc). Hotel is old but well kept. Decor is framed (often signed) head shots of old movie stars, etc. Has a computer in the lobby hooked up to a printer in the […] office where you can print your boarding passes when it's time to leave. A decent restaurant is attached. Rooms were larger than a lot of newer hotels and included a microwave, refridgerator, flat screen tv. There is free WiFI but it was slow. Room has an air conditioner which was noisey but that was a plus since it's on a busy road with lots of traffic noise. Bring a white noise machine if you have one. Bathroom has double sinks and a shower. Beds were comfortable and there were 4 pillows per bed. We felt safe walking in the area. It's quite a ways from the airport. Be prepared for a $100 cab ride (we chose Super Shuttle which was a long trip but cheap). This is not a luxury hotel but you get good value for the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is old and anyone can come up from the street and get on the elevator which was weird. Close to the Metro making it easy to get to Universal Studios. Front desk called cabs for you which was nice. Cafe 101 located at the base of the hotel was really tasty. The door to our room didn't fit on right. We could see the light from outside shining […] in all the time! Air conditioner didn't work well and neither did one of our hotel keys. The shower was a trickle of water. It was one of those that you just felt the need to wear flip flops in. City street smelled of urine which was gross. Within walking distance to the Walk of Fame and Grauman's, but the walk is really scary at night. I don't recommend that at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"fun, funky hotel"
Love the decor and design; feels like old hollywood. Friendly staff, great valet (which was required and extra fee, but worth it). Love the 101 dinner attached. Must try the amazing french toast. Overall great experience at this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very very accomodating when we asked to be near the friends who had already checked in. In fact, we were in the room next door!! I have two complaints about the hotel - 1) the pool was not heated and it was supposed to be, but that didn't keep the kids out of the pool; 2) the laundry facilities is only one washer and one dryer, so timing […] is essential!! I loved the paintings in the laundry room, and would have taken pictures of them if my camera hadn't run out of battery power. All said, we would likely stay there again as it is very centrally located to Hollywood, Sunset, and Santa Monica Blvds. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great location close to the Hollywood Theater District. Easy walking distance to short cab ride to Pantages if you are there for an event. Staff was attentive. The property is a bit dated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad at all...."
First time in Hollywood and was very impressed with this hotel. The staff was friendly and most importantly, the room was very clean. The beds were very comfortable and we liked that there were 2 shower heads in the shower so we could get cleaned up at the same time. Hollywood Blvd, full grocery store and the Metro rail was only about a 1/2 mile walk. […] Would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Western Hollywood Hills, Hollywood, CA"
The hotel was having some renovations on the ground floor. There was not a comfortable place in the lobby to meet friends who came to visit us while there. I have stayed in many Best Westerns & this one did not offer the amenities that we had become accustomed to in the others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Location and Cafe 101"
everything about this hotel is fine, but Cafe 101, which is right in the hotel is amazing. the food is great, lots of choices, you can go healthy or choose from a long list of great items for any time of the day. the people watching is a highlight in Cafe 101 at any hour. I always stay here on my many trips to Hollywood. it's convenient to everything […] in Hollywood and a comfortable place to stay. the guys at the front desk are always helpful. it's too bad they charge for parking now, but i can see why it's necessary. it's ok, with the valet service and all.

"I was pleasantly surprised."
We were pleasantly surprised by the clean and comfortable accomodations at the Best Western Hollywood Hills. The location was perfect for us. Close proximity to the theater, Hollywood landmarks and my daughter's home, whom we visited over the President's Weekend. The Cafe 101 is good and convinient as well. I will stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Towels and valet service"
For the price of this room, the towels could have been better. Very rough and full of lint. If you approach the hotel from the east on Franklin, there is no sign on the building - there is a small Best Western sign on the west side though. Valet parking only (which there is a charge for). My vehicle would not fit in the parking garage (only 6' clearance, […] and I have a Toyota FJ cruiser with a roof rack), so they parked my vehicle in a small outside lot near the lobby, about 20 feet from the valet kiosk. I had to retrieve my vehicle twice, and both times I had to wait about 10 minutes for the valet to show up, and hand me my key so I could walk 20 feet to get my car. I felt stupid giving a tip for that. Shoulda just gotten my hide-a-key and taken my car. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought this hotel was great (except for the parking but typical Hollywood) Nice room - kitchenette - huge bathroom plenty of space for 3 of us girls to get ready at once. I gave it a 3 for comfort because the bed hurt my back but again - nice room for an overnight stay close to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice surprise. Really like the Hollywood decor. The bathroom is big. Little odd that the window doesn't have a screen. If there was one thing I would warn u about, it would be the noise. The walls seem thin. We could here the neighbors watching I Love Lucy. Other than that, this was a really good place to stay. We would go back. Also, it has free wifi!
