One night mini vacation
I was bummed the restaurant wasn't open on Sundays, but everything else was nice. Room temp was easy to control, was very clean, the outside noise surprisingly didn't get in.

Hollywood 1920s
Great location and distance to our concert venue. Very well kept for a 1920's hotel. Had a Hollywood glam feel. Rooms were small but worth it for one night. Great view of Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory. Edmon's downstairs was great!
