"Old but acceptable"
This hotel is exactly as advertised; very old but absolutely clean within all reason. Most places in this price range are shady and gross; Historic Hollywood is just old and creaky. The elevator is tiny and there are window AC units instead of central air, but totally worth $100-150 a night given that most decent hotels in the neighborhood go for more than twice that. I can't say I highly recommend it, but it definitely suffices if necessary.

"Shabby chic"
We stayed overnight and found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. Admittedly it is a little shabby but for us this wasn't a deterrent. The bed was huge and very comfortable, our room was quiet, very clean and certainly big enough. The check in clerk was friendly and pointed in te direction of the coffee shop next door. The coffee shop is fantastic, so much so we went for afternoon coffees and then back again for breakfast the next day.

"Not too bad..."
Very old building. It's not bad to stay for one night for historical place for travel experience but I think not more than one night... Hood enough to stay night.

"The Hollywood historic hotel"
Over all the stay was ok the restaurant next to the hotel in the building was out of most of there food on a Saturday. The hotel wasn't bad but it wasn't worth the price. I would go back there again if it was a hole lot cheaper

"Basic Nostalgia"
This is an older hotel that's been nicely restored. The rooms and bathrooms are not large, but ours were spotless and comfortable, although we could have used a nice easy chair in the room. One oddity - there are no telephones. In the age of cell phones it was not a problem, just unusual. Highly recommend the attached "Nue Cafe" for breakfast or otherwise. It's a hoot and the food is excellent.

"Great hotel for a Hollywood vacation."
Great hotel for the price, spent 4 days and used as a base for our LA adventures. Cafe next door was amazing, great waitstaff and fabulous food and drink. Cozy room, but well maintained and lots of closet space. We unpacked and made ourselves at home. We were able to navigate easily to Dodger Stadium, Disneyland, and the tar pits.

Nothing special about the hotel. Rooms are very small, one of them had a large closet. Problems with the AC and the room was pretty stuffy. Gave us two rooms because our reserved two double beds was not available. In our case it worked because we got two bathrooms. No restaurant or anything in the hotel. Parking is included which is a good thing.

Historic is correct, it's definitely an old hotel. The lobby is nicely kept, the rooms are clean and well kept, but if you're used to a newer hotel, this isn't it. Bathroom is tiny and dated, room is bare bones, bed was comfortable.

The world's smallest elevator--a glorified dumb-waiter-- brings you to a plain but functional room. The hotel rides the line between glamorous Old Hollywood and just plain old. Free parking and wi-fi. I'd do it again...

"Nice, older historic hotel"
It was a nice, older hotel that re-claims its historic roots. It has a lot of charm, even though it's older. My room was very large, with vaulted ceilings. The bathroom was rather small and had low water pressure (a thing with me), but very clean and remodeled nicely. The room had lots of windows and was airy and very clean. The TV was old, but it included HBO. The front office staff were really great! They made me feel welcomed, were helpful when I needed directions and recommendation for pizza, and they remembered my name--a very nice touch! Overall, I would stay here again because the price was reasonable, the service was great, and the room was nice. I liked the old-fashioned elevator, too! :-)

The hotel is nice and comfortable. Everything works just fine (wifi, water temperature...). The area is quiet, with the exception of some occasional siren. Just the basic services are offered, so no internet room or room service, but the staff is friendly and will go the extra mile to help you in what you need.

Front desk was very nice and helpful. The hotel looks very nice from the outside and in the lobby, it looks old (as in vintage, not as in ugly :-) ) and well-kept, but the rooms themselves are not as pretty, it's a shame. The bathroom was very tiny. Hallways have old pictures of LA and Hollywood(land), which adds to the charm. Breakfast is not included but they have a place next door that is really good for a decent price, we highly recommend it. Only unpleasantness is that we booked a non-smoking room and were given a smoking room. We asked to change but it was the last one available, so we stayed there, which wasn't too nice. Still, the room was clean. Location-wise, it's close to the Chinese Theater and the Walk of Fame, but not too close (you need a car), so that's okay. It's however a 5-minute walking distance from Paramount Pictures, which we recommend. Overall a nice hotel, but considering it was one of the most expensive of our trip, we would not recommend it. We booked at the last moment so we could not compare, but I would not be surprised if one can find better for a nicer price.

"Nice Hotel near Hollywood Blvd and Paramount"
This is a very nice hotel especially for the age (built in 1927). We were there for two days and had no complaints about the room. The staff was super nice and were very helpful giving us information on things to do. The cafe that is attached to the hotel was super awesome. We ate there for dinner and for breakfast and the food was 5 star. The hotel is one block away from Paramount Pictures and maybe 5-7 minute drive to Hollywood Blvd (and its an easy drive at that). My only thing I would say that is a negative for the hotel, is that the bathrooms are very small, so if you are a large person, you will find using the restroom a built difficult. But other than that, if we go back to Hollywood, we will probably stay here again. If you are trying to compare this to a W hotel or Hilton, this is not the hotel for you. We are modest people and just wanted a nice, clean room at an affordable price. (Which is hard to come by in Hollywood)
