With so much going on in Los Angeles, it can be hard to know where to start your trip. Over the last couple of years, we discovered the Hollywood Hotel, and found it to be one of our favorite places to visit in such a vibrant and lively city!
Here are 10 reasons why we love the Hollywood Hotel:
1.) The location is great! The Hollywood Hotel is near a metro stop that will conveniently get you almost everywhere you need to go! You can take the metro to LAX, Long Beach, and apparently Disneyland! We always enjoy taking the Metro to the LA Auto Show, which is located at the Convention Center next to the Staples Center. We also ventured to The Getty Center near on Sepulveda Blvd. It was a quick drive from the hotel and well worth the visit! The museum is always free (there is a $15 charge for parking, and it’s reduced to$10 after 3PM) and has a selection of beautiful art from Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, and incredible city views.
2.) The breakfast is at the Hollywood Hotel is incredible! The hotel is “Internationally Famous” and for good reason! The breakfast includes made-to-order omelets, scrambles, or eggs any way you can imagine! There is a rainbow assortment of both juices and cereals. There’s also a wonderful selection of meats, cheeses, and pastries! The coffee is delicious, they have Nutella for your waffles and toast and the chocolate croissants are delicious!
3.) The courtyard will make you feel like you are in another world! There’s a reason people live in Los Angeles! The weather is always perfect! In the morning, it’ fun to sit next to the fountain and drink your coffee with the hummingbirds. At night, it’s fun to sit under the canopy of lights, as the weather is wonderful all year round.
4.) The room is so beautiful that you won’t want to leave! We love the black and white tile floor in the bathroom and the fun décor! The horsehead lamp is always a favorite! We also love that each room has a refrigerator and a microwave. When we are road tripping, that’s always a wonderful bonus for us!
5.) You’re literally in Hollywood! We were fortunate to have the view of both the iconic Hollywood sign and a Scientology building! We just think that’s neat! Our window facing the street opened up, so we slept with the window open all night. It was really cool to hear the cars buzz by in a city that never sleeps. Los Angeles is THE entertainment capital, it’s always on!
6.) There’s a secret comedy club at the 1160 Bar + Lounge! You can check out open mic or booked shows on Thursdays-Saturdays from 7-11, be sure to check with the front desk, but you never know who will stop by to crack a few jokes!
7.) The hotel also has complimentary wi-fi throughout the hotel. We love being able to work from anywhere in the hotel.
8.) The rooftop patio on the 3rd floor has the best views of the city. We love LA, but we don’t love the traffic. Once we get to the hotel, it’s so nice to just unwind and relax without feeling the pressure to go anywhere.
9.) The parking lot is very convenient. Although the hotel charges for parking, we like that our Jeep is parked in a secured lot with security. We also like that we can see our Jeep from the 3rd floor patio, and access it anytime, without having to walk into a parking garage.
10. The Hotel Hollywood is a piece of living history! The property is still undergoing renovations, but it’s such an iconic location! You will feel the history mixed with the wonderful modern conveniences and technology!
We hope you will plan a visit to the Hotel Hollywood on your next adventure to Los Angeles!
