The staff were nice and the place had old style charm
Lots of street noise and can hear other guests all the time
The t.v. the bed.
Felt like an apartment, as opposed to a hotel. Small rooms.
Location, adequate parking, amazing value for the area
Older hotel with dated bathroom
The location, although not in the heart of Hollywood, it was conveniently situated between Fairfax, Korea Town and Hollywood, all places we wanted to visit for specific reasons. The building had an old world charm and the hallways was decorated accordingly. The long hallways also reminded of an asylum. Free internet and TV channels, as opposed to some other upmarket hotels that make you pay for it. What they quote is what they charge, no hidden fees.
The carpet in our bedroom could have been cleaner. There were two stains in the corner that was a bit offputting.
Never been to LA. Read good reviews for this hotel on line. Totally agree. Clean simple hotel. With secure parking. Staff offered great advice re places to eat, visit.
Location was great, close to Hollywood/Downtown and 101 Freeway, had a great view of the Hollywood sign and the observatory, quiet rooms, beautiful building, parking, and WiFi included, mini-fridge, it was great.
Bed could've been softer.
We spent two nights at the hotel and loved it's charm. The rooms were spacious and well kept. The entire place is full of memorabilia from Hollywood's heyday and a lot of the fixtures and elements are from the original 1920's build. When we checked in the front desk was very helpful in making sure we knew how to get around and provided us maps and directions. If you're interested in doing lot tours like Paramount, you're walking distance away. If you want to go down to Hollywood Boulevard, you're going to need to drive or have the hotel call you a cab as it's about a 45 minute walk from the hotel. For the price and general proximity to the attractions of Hollywood, this hotel was a gem and a great find.
The hotel doesn't offer any meals or room service so you're on your own for all of that. If you're staying by the hotel for dinner, there is an amazing little Italian restaurant two minutes down the street called Osteria La Buca. We had an amazing meal with excellent cocktails.
Noisy next door guests. Night time crane work outside my window, very disturbing!
Staff Room size view of the Hollywood sign
location is good, but LA is so big, your always a distance from everything. no real negatives

Very comfortable room, clean and cozy with a feel of the past, minutes from Hollywood blvd and pleanty of parking
Nothing terribly bad other than the traffic on melrose, but thats just LA
As Heritage restorers we enjoyed the style of the building and it's up keep.
I wanted to stay an additional 4 nights. I had stayed 4 nights. I was told they were booked and had to leave. I don't believe that was the truth …and don't understand why that happened. So I moved on to another hotel
No shower plugs in the bathtub and no phones in the room.
The location, great! Excellent restaurant a few doors down! It just says Pizza, but it is incredible!! Michael at the desk, great!
The view of the Hollywood sign. Very nice decoration. Free parking.
Housekeeping wasn't so dedicated when cleaning the room. Soap and shampoo weren't frequently replaced. I had to step by the front desk to ask for some soap.

We had a very small room at melrose avenue, traffic was really loud, so loud we decided to move to another hotel.
