I recently returned from a six day trip to LA, where we made our way through West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Venice, Santa Monica, Culver City, took a drive up to Camarillo Ranch for a wedding, and then made a detour to Malibu on the way back to LA. I’m sharing plenty of photos on Instagram and I’ll have another post on the blog, though this post is all about the adorable sanctuary where we stayed, Hollywood Hotel.
Something extremely important to me as a guest when staying at a hotel is their customer service. Great customer service sets the tone for your stay, and reassures you that should you have any questions or issues, they will be properly handled. As soon as we stepped foot into Hollywood Hotel, we were greeted with authentic smiles. The front desk agent was so friendly, accommodating, and helpful, that I knew we were going to have a great experience.
Hollywood Hotel recently renovated their rooms, and I was impressed to see the chic and modern decor, with nods to Hollywood. Our room was bright with natural light, and the soft yellow furniture added some cheery touches. I loved the wall art and the furniture, and the bathroom tile and fixtures had me swooning.
When we checked in, we were told that guests receive a complimentary breakfast. Typically, I know that term can lead to unappetizing thoughts of cold eggs and old bananas, but theirs was nothing of the sort. We were pleasantly surprised and very impressed with the spread. A full made-to-order omelet bar, waffle station (even chocolate waffles!), cereal bar, oatmeal station (I was personally excited about this one, as I could DIY an oatmeal bowl with bananas, PB, and fun toppings which is right up my alley), fruit, a huge selection of bagels and breads to toast, and they even had soy milk for coffee/cereal. It’s available until 10:30 am, and definitely worth getting out of bed for!
When staying at Hollywood Hotel, a trip to their gorgeous pool oasis is a must – even if you don’t go for a dip! It’s surrounded by lush greenery, and the retro vibes – complete with their cute yellow and white striped pool cushions – set a perfect scene.
We found the location of the hotel to be great for us – it is pretty central, depending on what areas you plan to visit. It’s in between Hollywood and the Silver Lake area, and it’s directly next to Santa Monica Blvd and close to the 101, making it easy to travel around.
Check out their site if you are planning to make a trip to LA soon. They also run different promotional offers with partnering businesses, so you may score some additional discounts!
