This hotel is a great location, literally a 5-10 min walk to Chinese Theater/Kodak theater, etc. This is also a great place to stay if you are relying on public transport,we were close to metro to get to Universal and with tips off trip ad visor easily got the bus to Santa Monica Beach and Warner Bros.The check in desk are helpful and can give directions, etc. The friendly staff were able to accommodate us. The hotel was very clean, including rooms, hallways and lobby. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, as the hotel is just minutes away from everything in Hollywood. I would recommend this hotel to everyone, great value for the location and room!!!
