Our first stop in LA, although room decor a little dated, this hotel was charming from the start. The staff were absolutely beautiful, the hotel lobby stunning, The Blvd had wonderful breakfast and prompt, friendly service. Although not cheap to be around Rodeo Drive to eat, this location was lovely and central to Hollywood and Santa Monica Beach. Our 8 year old was in Car Heaven at the cars that entered the Drive !!!. We stayed in the newer section of the Hotel and had a great view from the 12th floor of the Hollywood Hills.The gym and pool facilities were lovely. Would stay here again.
