Where to Stay in Los Angeles: Hollywood Hotel Monday 19 November, 2018

I truly love Los Angeles, as everytime I visit I get a new view and feel of this amazing Sunshine State. I recently stayed at the Hollywood Hotel, which is authentic to its name as it is a hotel that give you the regal Hollywood energy like you would a vintage movie. Check out in more detail of my historical but modern deco inspired hotel.

Combining cosmopolitan California architecture and vintage Hollywood glamour it makes it for a truly unique hospitality experience in Los Angeles. The original Hollywood Hotel was built in 1903 and was known as “the” Hollywood hotel. The 1937 movie “Hooray for Hollywood” was filmed on location at the property and first featured the song “Hooray for Hollywood.”   You get a great mix of vintage energy with new modern flair.

Established in 1903, this 130-room property delightfully fuses old Hollywood glamour with a modern take on deluxe amenities and newly refreshed comfortable rooms. These rooms are extremely spacious including 6 suites, and 4 guestrooms with king size beds.

I love the little details in the room, most notable is this Hotel Hollywood custom labeled blanket. Never seen this before in a hotel and I thought it was a beautiful touch to the room.

I love going to hotel bathrooms and this one was immaculate! It was open design, porcelain white with black flowered tiled floor. This is definitely moderly redesigned to give you a lush luxury feel .

I really enjoyed this hotel room with a balcony. It definitely give you the vintage feel with the double doors and the antique-like movie spotlight nearby. When you open these doors to the balcony, you get an amazing view of the luscious courtyard.

The open-air Fountain Courtyard provides a Mediterranean backdrop for guests to relax and lounge in a stylish and intimate newly renovated space. Free WiFI is available for guests in the courtyard. Interested parties may also book the courtyard for private events. I loved all the greenery that cascaded this courtyard, giving you an urban jungle feel while still feeling like you are in a vintage oasis.

Also in the courtyard was this cute little area where there are label movie chairs where you can lounge and relax. Keeping with the theme of the Old Hollywood movie feel. Cute touch to the courtyard.

Hollywood hotel features a spacious and refreshed outdoor pool area with a surrounding garden and sun deck. Restoration Hardware lounge chairs, umbrellas and tables evoking classic Hollywood style surround the pool to give guests the ultimate Southern California experience. The pool area is open year-round.

True to the old Hollywood tradition, Hollywood Hotel features its own Comedy Club hosted at the new on-site Route 66 Bar + Lounge. Many A-list celebrities have visited the Comedy Club’s OpenMic Nights, some numerous times, including Jessica Biel, Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, BJ Novak, Aiden Quinn and NFL running back Doug Martin.


Bar & Lounge: Route 66 Bar + Lounge, located on the hotel’s lower level, is a gathering point for locals and visitors alike. The bar’s casual laid-back lounge
reflects the fresh invigorating attitude of the hotel’s East Hollywood neighborhood, where the atmosphere encourages casual conversation over libations between old friends and new ones. Route 66’s cocktail menu offers fresh, simple and high-quality cocktails, delivering progressive Hollywood Hotel classics, inspired specialty and ever-changing seasonal cocktails, all reminiscent of Hollywood’s golden age. Route 66 also offers an assortment of California craft brews, especially those local to Los Angeles.

The bar and lounge is open from 5:00pm – 11:00pm.

Hot Buffet Breakfast: A complimentary Hot International Buffet Breakfast is served daily from 6:30am – 10:30am in the Dining Room. Guests can choose from ten varieties of cereal, muffins, bagels, pastries and breads. There is also an “egg station” where guests can order a made-to-order omelet from Chef Hugo with up to eight different fillings, or scrambled, fried or plain egg whites. Sausage, cheese and a variety of cold cuts are also available along with coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Families love the unique Belgian waffle molds, such as a Teddy Bear shaped mold, with various sweet toppings for customization. Vegan guests can enjoy a flour tortilla with their choice of fillings. Guests can also choose from croissants, fresh fruit and four kinds of juice.

Hollywood Hotel – The Hotel of Hollywood
The 130-room Hollywood Hotel is one of the most reasonably priced hotels in the city and offers incredible value in a central location. Situated right in the heart of Hollywood, it’s steps away from boutique shopping, world-class dining and cutting edge culture, and the closest hotel to The Hollywood Sign, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, the Walk of Fame, Griffith Park, LA Zoo, Greek theater and Mount Hollywood hiking trails. Guests can even hop on the nearby Metro and explore Los Angeles, or spend the day at Universal Studios.
