Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mmpm Holiday Inn Express on Hollywood, great location
My only negative about this hotel (and it's fairly minor# is, we stayed in one of the suites on the 8th floor. This meant taking an elevator from the ground floor to the 5th floor, then walking over to the other side of the hotel to take another elevator up to the 8th. The elevators weren't very quick, and if you had a lot of luggage #as we did), it was a bit of a hassle. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Location is right in the middle of Hollywood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CCTPEP Great stay!
Our family had a great stay at the Holiday Hollywood Walk of Fame! We loved being so close to the Walk of Fame, great restaurants, and shopping. The staff was exceptional! Hotel is clean and surprisingly quiet for it's close proximity to all the Hollywood attractions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacquiuk Great location
Great place to stay close to all attractions of Hollywood
Our room was spacious and comfortable and despite being on the front of the property we were not disturbed by the road noise
Swimming pool was lovely to relax in after a day of sight seeing
Choice at breakfast was great only complaint would be that it was sometimes difficult to get a table. A few more chairs and tables could quite easily be put into the room as it is a very spacious breakfast room compared to many other hotels we visited.
Sofa bed was extremely uncomfortable too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 111133Traveller Good location, reasonable price
Nice and clean, we'll appointed, good location. At breakfast the juice machine wasn't providing juice and the scrambled eggs had fun out . Cereal was really sugary and it was disappointing to see that so many things were disposable and were not recycled, although this was typical of many hotels

Outstanding breakfast! Everything was, hot, fresh and clean. We really enjoyed the pancake machine. I have to say that the staff member that worked the breakfast, kept up with keeping everything well stocked and clean. She was totally awesome. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The $20.00 parking fee per day should be included in the price of the hotel. We would definitely stay here again. Location was great. Just a 10 minute walk to the Walk of Fame.

Our check-in, our inquiries, and check-out was friendly, and efficient. The hotel is in a great location just a block and half walk to Hollywood Boulevard. I would recommend this hotel. The staff were the best we have come across anywhere in UK or USA at Holiday Inns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary24 Great Location, freindly staff
We stayed for 3 nights after staying a few days in Anaheim.
The location can't be beat. A 5 minute walk to Hollywood Blvd, shops restaurants and shopping. There was an event going on at the Hollywood bowl during out stay which was a 5 minute walk in the other direction. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We thought breakfast was fine, coffee, cereal, all kinds of bread and bagels to toast. There was also yogurt, bananas and juices. The only thing was that the room was very crowded at the peak time. There were 5 of us which made it even harder. We had a suite so we brought it back to the room one morning. Our room was on the 8th floor. The room was just renovated and was very nice. We had a balcony that overlooked the Hollywood sign! We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and stay here again if we were in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheGrinches Good stay but...
Having stayed in several Holiday Inn Express before we were disappointed by the presence of this particular one. It needs a coat of fresh exterior paint to make it look clean and welcoming. Some floors common areas carpets need to be replaced, especially 4th floor where the breakfast is served and pool is. Maybe a different type of floor would be better so it does not show stains and it would not look dirty. The location and service were excellent. The area seemed a bit scary at first on a Sunday early morning but this changed quickly as there is tons of traffic and walking tourists from this and nearby hotels at all other times. Seems it was just that Sunday morning most people were sill sleeping. We felt very safe most of the time. The breakfast area could be better. Very crowded. We had to sit by the pool or take breakfast to our room because there were no open tables. If you are headed north on N Highland you need to go south to Franklin and find a driveway to turn around and go back N. Highland to head north. It is practically impossible to turn left from the hotel giving the amount of traffic. Something to keep in mind because it may add 10 minutes to your planned ride. Upper floors (we stayed at 7th) are very quiet. The view was not what we expected at all but at least you can peek a bit the lights in Hollywood blvd. It is not an up class hotel but its location, attention and cleanness makes it a very good choice -especially if you are planning to be out and about most of your day.

Within easy walking distance from Hollywood Bowl to the north and the Walk of Fame area to the south. As always, the breakfast was great. Breakfast area was a little too small & crowded. Our room was clean and nicely decorated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cherieberie Excellent Location! Professional Staff!
We booked a special package that included a top floor room (beautiful room!) and extra Priority Club Points and free parking. As we checked in, we told the staff that we would be running back out to make a taping at Warner Bros Studios. They kept the car right in the front for us and (despite the fact that you really cannot make a left out of the parking garage) we arrived on time for the show taping. My daughter's especially loved the mural in the parking area!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elmore13 Great Service
Our family saved and planned our trip to LA for over a year. Choosing Holiday Inn express in Hollywood, was one of the best things we did. Located within walking distance to the busiest block on Hollywood Blvd and the bus tours. Location was great. The complimentary breakfast was great and saved us at least $40 per day in expenditures. Pool was small, but clean and refreshing.
Only disappointment, was the lack of towels available in the pool area, but after the first trip to the pool, we just took our room towels. I chose to do laundry before leaving to continue our vacation in Vegas. Big mistake. Only one washer & dryer and many guests had the same idea. We would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Hollywood or surrounding area.

Right in downtown LA, right near the walks of fame and bus tour routes. The metro train is also right there as well main bus routes. It made it really easy to get around. The rooms are quite big, the fridges in the room are empty which I like so we filled it ourselves. Breakfast is very basic but satisfactory. There is a pool and gym which was great on the hot days, and the concierge was great. Would stay here again, definitely

Broken shower head, suite with no microwave. Really disappointed with the amount of time that I had in reference to addressing the issues with hotel staff. As a platinum member I truly expected more for the rate that was charged. Needless to say I will not be going back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lolatravelingmom comfortable, great location, attentive staff
my recent stay was accompanied by 2 recent High School Grads to see the local sights. We arrived early the first day and the hotel did not have a room ready, so they immediately offered to keep our luggage, made suggestions on what to do until our room was ready before check in. The front desk clerk was very attentive, she called a tour service and secured a reservation and then suggested a few restaurants in the area for us to try. The location is perfect for a quick walk to Hollywood Walk of Fame, Dolby Theater Mall, local restaurants, Star Tours, The Roosevelt Hotel and Hollywood Bowl and great shopping! We definitely will be back - many thanks to Omar and Bailey your attentive service was welcome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MattAZ42 Best Holiday Inn I've ever stayed at!
We love staying at this hotel! The staff is great and the location hear the H&H Mall, Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Bowl is just perfect. The rooms are surprisingly quiet considering how near the action you are. The rooms are always clean and the beds are very comfortable. We enjoy the in-room safe and refrigerator, plus the big screen TV with a much greater channel selection than is typical. The included breakfast (eggs, bacon, biscuits & gravy, cinnamon rolls, etc. ) just can't be beat, and the breakfast attendant was the friendliest we have ever encountered. The hotel also includes a nice workout room with treadmill and elliptical exercise machines, and a nice pool. Be aware, the pool closes at 8 pm, probably due to noise concerns. There is a fee for the valet parking, but it is reasonable for the area and the attendant was friendly and efficient. For the money, there is no better place to stay in Hollywood!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by raffiii Staff made the stay!
The staff was very welcoming and made the stay excellent overall. I was pleasantly surprised with the well appointed rooms, they seem newer, and the colors/tones used throughout gave it an appealing vibe. The lobby is tiny, so it is hard to judge the overall hotel from the lobby.
The room we had was spacious with a tiny separate area with sofa (sofa bed), mini-fridge, 2-top table and sink. There were 4 of us in the room with two queen beds and the space was more than adequate - we didn't feel cramped or in each other's way.
Location near Hollywood and Hollywood Bowl make it ideal. The breakfast is standard fare, although the warm cinnamon rolls were quite tasty. Didn't get to try out the pancake conveyor belt but it looked cool. Staff at breakfast (little tiny Filipino lady) was very nice and friendly.

This is the only way to go for a night out at the Hollywood Bowl. You can walk and it is a clean comfortable hotel. I had two small problems, which was that the in-room safe was not big enough to fit my camera and laptop, and the blow-dryer got really hot when I first turned it on and started crackling and popping....needless to say, I shut if off immediately. I reported it to the staff and they were great. Overall, the experience was nice. Comfy beds and great staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unrested Convenient Location but...
I must say, the reviews on other sites (Travelocity, etc.) were pretty accurate. The location of this facility is very convenient. The valet service is also convenience but over-priced. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful.
I chose this hotel because I was searching for a suite, in this area, that would comfortably sleep 3 adults. I read reviews that commented that the sofa bed was uncomfortable and I ignored those comments. That was a mistake. The sofa bed was PAINFULLY uncomfortable! The mattress is so worn out that you could feel every spring and metal bar from the bed - through the mattress.
Shortly before our scheduled arrival, our plans had changed, necessitating an earlier arrival. I called this facility to see if I could get the room a day earlier than planned and it was not available. This forced my to find another suite hotel down near LAX. THAT facility (of another chain) put this one to shame. The sofa bed was new, and very comfortable. Unfortunately, next time I visit Hollywood and need a large room that will accommodate three adults, I will drive the distance and stay at the hotel I found near LAX.
I stay in hotels approximately 200 nights per year and this hotel, while friendly and convenient, loses out in the ability to have a comfortable resting. I recommend this location ONLY based on its location. If your group requires you to need a sofa bed, go somewhere else!
