We put my girlfriends mom up at this place during a trip to LA in July 2015. The wifi never worked, despite reassurances that it would once enough of the guests quit using it. Her mom needed wifi for important reasons so we decided to move her to another hotel and cancel the third night. "It isn't policy to refund" we were told, however one gentleman working there was kind enough to refund us the last night if we called expedia first to cancel it (which we did, then expedia called the hotel to verify the cancellation). We were standing right there when expedia called to verify our cancellation and the employee said we were good to go. After our trip, we learned that the third night was still charged as was the initial deposit (about 150 if I remember correctly) and never refunded back. After calling the hotel about these charges, the manager just stated that they don't do refunds. It was brought to expedia's attention, they attempted to contact the hotel, but no one answered. My girlfriend has tried calling the hotel since, but no one answers.... Stay away, this place is crooked.

Visited from UK and stayed here during a California road trip. It's not the smartest of areas clearly but given you have to drive everywhere in LA anyway as long as the location isn't a massive dive that wasn't what I'd consider an issue. It had perfectly functioning wifi, an excellent car park, I ran round the block a couple of days and never felt threatened so I'd take all of that stuff with a pinch of salt, the Nue Cafe downstairs is also excellent and worth noting. I'd happily stay here again given it's location, amenities and cost.

I have called to book a tour, to no avail. No one answers their phones!! Called both the 213 number and their 1-800 number very disappointing!!

It's kind of old-looking. But honestly, for the price you pay + free parking, it's totally worth it. I definitely liked the Hollywood Historic. It's not the cleanest hotel in the world, but it's definitely not disgusting. We paid $70ish bucks a night for a 1-king bed and 1 bath room. It was for a convention so all of the $50 a night rooms were taken. But $70 is still definitely worth it! You're in a little bit of a sketchy area but at least you'll have a relatively safe parking spot and a place to end the night. Definitely check it out if you want to stay in the heart of LA!

Free parking. That alone is a plus but I couldn't take advantage of it. It's nicely decorated and has pleasant furnishings. I was surprised at how BIG the bed is. I mean... BIG. I'm 6' 2" and sharing a bed with a friend was beyond easy. Neither of us are obese by the way. Maid service was good. Very up to par and almost invisible. Obviously it ain't the Ritz-Carlton, but with its price it's totally worth it.

Although it's almost 5 years since we've been there, we still have fond memories of this location. And I will not forget the fever that kept me in the hotel room for a whole afternoon. Very friendly employees, were very helpful with directions and information about what to do, where to go. We stayed at the HHH back in August 2010 and paid $49 per night and today the price has more than doubled. The room price is $105 per night. How come?

Had I nice stay, easy to find, free parking and free wifi. Has hair drier, fridge and coffee maker, large tv, comfortable beds and air con. We had no problems and the retro decor is lovely. If you like old hollywood and it's faded glamour it's a great place to stay, views of the hollywood sign from the street, and probably some rooms, though not ours. Liked it enough to book to stay again in a week. Bargain.
