Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RealG68 25 wedding anniversary
If you want to stay and play,
The Holiday Inn Walk of Fame is the place to stay.
It's close to all the thrills you seek
And the people who work there are pretty neat .
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary,
And enjoyed ourselve Immensely.
So pack your bags and come on down
To one of the best hotels in Hollywood town.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Psalm91 Good value
- This hotel is 5 mins drive from Universal Theme Park. 10 mins walking distance to the Walk of fame. As the hotel is on the entrance/exit road of a major highway, it can get pretty busy but the windows do a good job to keep the noise out. If you are driving to the hotel and need to turn left into the driveway, do consider driving down to the next traffic light to turn around to the same side of the hotel, as the traffic can be difficult to cut through. When you exit the hotel you can try turning left on the 2nd traffic light to turn back to the highway entrance.
- There is a Walgreens and supermarket about 15 mins walk away, at the end of the Walk of Fame.
- The front desk staff are very friendly.
- It would be good if parking is free for guests.
- I had two rooms. One of them faces another wall but it is not a big issue as the room is comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BECKY1 BRILLIANT STAFF ARE EXCEPTIONAL
My son stayed in this hotel and had the time of his life, he said the staff were helpful and he never felt insecure throughout his stay.
I would recommend this hotel I have always seen consistently
exceptional service in all the HOLIDAY INN HOTELS throughout the USA. New York, Florida, Toronto, all good but this was exceptional, WELL DONE to all the staff for giving my son such a welcome.
A BIG THANK YOU from a Londoner.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cook62 Decent place to stay near Hollywood Blvd and Sunset Blvd
We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is in need of a major overall - furniture is old and scratched up, t he rooms are very dark - not enough bright lights and the carpet needs replacing. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was very good and was served in a very nice size room with views of the pool. The room was clean but it was not fully replenished each day with cups, soap, etc.
We were in a corner room and it was very quiet.
The only other complaint was that in the mornings out by the elevators there was a smell of some type of gas - maybe methane?

Very good hotel close to Hollywood walk of fame.
The front desk staff Omar was so lovely, welcoming, accomodating and approachable when we arrived after a long trip.
Short walk to hollywood walk of fame, highland shopping centre , metro and Kodak theatre.
Very convenient to tourists.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sandra102084 Hollywood Bowl
This hotel is perfect for anyone going to a concert at the Bowl. Short walking distance.
The hotel is clean, beds comfortable, staff friendly, the Valet drivers outstanding.
The WiFi is an issue: This comment to the hotel .... Have WiFi, have it be acceptable on the Laptop computer as well. The hotel had no ethernet cords and neither did I. I had to buy one! The wireless ability in my laptop WOULD NOT connect to the wireless ability the hotel had to offer. Not only that, the WiFi connection was severely slow.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dddaisy Parking
My husband is disabled and we have a handicapped parking tag. There are handicapped spaces right across from the lobby entrance but when there is an event at the Hollywood Bowl they rent spaces to attendees and let them park in those spaces. We were at your hotel for two days, two weeks in a row for a total of four days, and both weeks the handicapped spaces were taken up by attendees (who were not disabled). When we arrived we had to park a distance from the lobby. And we pay $22 a night to park at that hotel!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JenB7 Great Location to Hollywood Bowl
The staff at this location was fantastic. The location to this hotel was perfect to attending a concert at the Hollywood Bowl; we walked there and back. One concern was that the arm chair in our room had the seat slashed on both sides. Apparently if one side is cut open, you just flip it over?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yorkie48 Perfect for Hollywood
The staff on arrival were very helpful and organised a booking for a tour for my daughter, parking by valet was easy and the room was very large, beds comfortable and everything we needed in fridge, microwave and coffee maker, free internet Wi-Fi worked well and the Pool although small was nice for a quick dip. There was a good fitness room as well. The free buffet breakfast was fairly standard as in most HIE. The real plus for this hotel is its location to Hollywood Boulevard and the walk of fame and all other attractions that are close by. Would definitely stay here again if in Hollywood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by christian90804 Quiet Room, Luxurious Bed and Spacious Bathroom
The recently updated superior two floor rooms in this location are awesome. Doesn't feel like your staying at a holiday in express. Easily can accommodate 4 guests. Haven't stayed at other rooms so can't comment on them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent Customer Service, grat location
This was the last day of a 15 day touring holiday and it was one of the best stays.
Omar, on the reception desk, was the most infomative of those we encountered throughout our stay in California. He pointed us perfectly to restaurants for lunch and evening as well as a good variety of bus tours. He also helped us with space for our bags and arranged a late check-out to suit our departure plans.
The location is within 10 mins walk of the centre of everything, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was just as expected; the standard stuff but just right.
Other staff (valet, cleaners) were also efficient with the expected "smile".
We would willingly book here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leecliff4 All good
Easy to walk to strip and very safe. Shops close by for food and drinks. Awsome location and very clean. Room service abit slow tho. Pool area not great, only sunny till 2pm maybe as buildings hide the afternoon sun. No banana lounges to lay on, I hated it. Rooms can get quite stuffy as air conditioning is not the best , hallways and alovators always very hot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ben99 Good location, bad room
I chose the Holiday Inn due to being a platinum member, and using Holiday Inns each week in England, I e-mailed the hotel twice to link to my priority number but heard nothing back, it was only when I got there they linked my booking to my platinum card. Perhaps because of this I got very little benefit from being a priority member, I did get a free late check out. I was in room 303 and had a room with a view, well of a painted wall approx 3 feet from the window and I was directly below the breakfast room not ideal after a long flight when breakfast starts at 06:30. This was put to one side as we were not stopping long but add to this the fact that the safe could hold very little due to its depth there was an occasion where we had to leave our sunglasses out of the safe to fit other valubles in and low and behold they dissappeared!! we reported that a pair of Oakley glasses appeared to have been taken from our room but as in most hotels there was nothing they could do, lesson learnt.
The location for main Hollywood attractions like the Chinese Theatre etc. was excellant but my dissapointment at the room and having my wifes sunglasses go missing left a bad taste and has tarnised my holiday and my opinion of this hotel and perhaps the Holiday Inn brand which is sad as I have nothing but praise for my regular IHG hotel back in the UK.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pajhess Very comfortable bed and the bath room was great.
We were upgraded to the 7th floor which was the new section. The bed was fantastic. The bathroom was superb. Very roomy room. A little confusing to get to the 7th floor but managed OK.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GEPSHC ok
Would be great but the housekeeping doesnt come until 5pm (and thats based on 2 weeks of stays) and the gym is horrible (no AC, no water, broken equipment). This week my room had no clock and a chair without a cushion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bammer Outstanding hotel
This was my fourth stay at this location and it never disappoints. The rooms are clean and quiet, the staff courteous and welcoming, the location perfect for my needs. Exceptional service by Omar at the front desk for the time I was there. The complimentary breakfast is nice to have available as well.
This property is located a short walk from the Hollywood Bowl, so when attending concerts there, you don't have to deal with the parking backlog at the concert venue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TrentMc Pros and cons
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, and the location to the Walk of Fame! Dolby and Grauman Theatres is great. Firstly, the staff are fantastic and the service is exceptional, but depending on the time of day, the front reception is busy (4pm check in!!). Lobby is small, lifts are slow, no bellboy so taking your own luggage, but given it is a Holiday Inn, so dramas. You wouldn't want to hang out at the hotel all day, no bar, small pool and lobby, etc, but you're in Hollywood!
Some room for improvement, really small breakfast area and hard to get a table, plus there needs to be some better layout or a no children self service policy. It is off putting and disappointing to see food wasted and other people touching food without utensils, etc...enough to take the family across the road for some tasteless Subway! The kitchen staff work really hard, but can't keep up.
Suggestion: make the breakfast room a lounge and bar (it's next to the pool), and sacrifice a few rooms for a decent bistro or eatery.
Rooms are basic, but neat, tidy and comfortable.
