Loved this place and was so sad to leave. Forced out by my husband. This place is packed with old Hollywood treasures. I loved the individual rooms suited best based on hair color. Can't wait to go back!

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
