Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dukeouttadodge Excellent Stay but Long Trip to Room
Positives: We really enjoyed our stay, and the facility was very nice. The staff was very helpful and made the extra effort to make sure we were well taken care of. We were able to easily walk to many area points of interest, which was a nice option.
Negatives: Getting to our room (which was very nice by the way) was a challenge due to the need to use a confusing and slow path with multiple elevators on separate floors. Of course the fees to park our vehicle overnight added to the cost of our visit...which can be expected at sites in any large city. The site had a small pool but no Hot Tub?
We would certainly return to this facility in future visits to the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LarryB92040 Good service, unexpected $22.00 parking fee
Nice breakfast selection, I was very surprised that the valet parking WAS THE ONLY CHOICE of parking. The charge was on my email receipt of my registration, however, I didn't even notice it until I checked in and was notified of the extra charge.
Because of the location, there isn't anywhere else to park.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JunieK Wonderful staff and great location
The staff at Holiday Inn Express Walk of Fame are so professional and friendly. We dealt with three of the counter staff and each of them was wonderul: Omar, Mickey, and a third lady whose name we did not know. The location is close enough for a quick walk to the tourist sights, Hop on buses, tour starting points, and Highland Mall which has good food choices and lots of shopping. HIghly recommend this hotel if you want to be near the action of Hollywood yet 10-minutes' walk away from all the noise on the Walk of Fame. We stayed in a 2 Queen bed room for a family of 4. The room is big and comfortable though the decor is a little outdated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lilica good choice
Couple and two teens stayed for 5 nights in a 2 queen bed executive suite ( room 526 ) facing main road. Traffic noise could be an issue for light sleepers. Plenty of room, including a sofa-bed area and a table. Comfy beds; microwave, minibar and sink available; large bathroom; free decent breakfast - not enough seats at breakfast room (3rd floor), though. Rate included vallet parking - good choice. Right next to Hollywood Blvd. A mini market across the street. Safe to walk arround. Only issue - for two consecutive mornings there was no hot water in the shower. Got a discount for the inconvenience. Would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PatrickSanDiego Hollywood
This is the first time I have stayed at the hotel and the stay was comfortable and the room was quiet and clean. We slept well. The only drawback to the hotel is the getting in and out of the parking lot. However, if you follow Google Maps directions you will quickly learn how to negotiate the traffic. The hotel is good value given the area where good hotels tend to run $260 plus per night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SL@SG Good location and clean rooms.
Hotel is well located and close to Hollywood Blv. Many shops and eating places within walking distance. Valet parking at hotel was fast and efficient. Overall the hotel is clean and safe. Only downside is the breakfast room is small and you need to be early in order to get a table for breakfast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jack1957 This Holiday Inn was not the service I am accustomed
When I talked to the people on the phone for reservation and used my rewards points I was told I would have free breakfast, free parking, and free shuttle services. When I checked in I only received the free breakfast, no shuttle or free parking. I was told it was provided at that sight. Complete opposite what I was informed on the phone. I was really disappointed. They deduct $5 off the fee but not the free parking I was expecting. Plus no shuttle although the place I was going was nearby and shuttle was not needed but still it was not what I was told when I made reservation. Someone in corporate headquarters should get thier reservation phone line know what they are talking about.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John08973123 Excellent Hotel, Good Value and Great Location
I've stayed here a few times. It has a good proximity to Hollywood Blvd and Highland. Is in walking distance to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Hotel is nicer than some Crowne Plaza hotels I've stayed at. When I go to Hollywood, this is the place I stay. Breakfast in the morning is pretty good and the coffee is always hot. The hotel is quiet and secure which can be tricky for Hollywood. I can always get a decent night sleep here as the rooms and beds are pretty conformable. The price of the hotel is a little higher than typical Holliday Day Inns, but you are in Hollywood an this hotel is nicer than most. If you are planning a stay in the Hollywood area, it is tough to beat this place. Good rooms, good value, good location!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kato Awesome Renovated Rooms
I was lucky enough to be put into one of the hotel's newly renovated rooms. Awesome design. In speaking with the staff, it sounds like they will all look like this very soon. That's good for EVERYONE!! Great hotel, location, staff. Highly recommend it. Only IHG product in the Hollywood area now. So can't go wrong.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BrisbaneGal Truly enjoyable stay
A great hotel. On arrival was made to feel so welcome. Front desk personnel went out of their way to ensure I felt comfortable and had all I needed. Breakfast area was small however when there's free food on, people make sure they don't miss out. I couldn't fault my entire stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SusanNZ Great location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property which is ideally suited to enjoy many of the attractions in the area. We stayed in a Queen suite - 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa as there were four of us. The bathroom is a good size and everything was clean. This property is walking distance to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Dolby Theatre and shops. It's very close to Universal Studios and easy to access with a car.
We would certainly stay here again. The staff were friendly and hospitable. Our only recommendation would be to extend the laundry hours beyond 8pm and to put another machine in as one isn't enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrumpyBadger1 Friendly staff and spacious room.
Wonderfully freindly staff who were always eager to please and give helpful advice on great places to visit or great local places to eat at.
Our room was huge, the bed was very comfortable and the room was always cleaned so well.
Only downside was that our view looked out to a corridor in the hotel.
I have recommended this Holiday Inn to friends and I would definately stay here again if we travel back to LA.

We finally found an excellent hotel that accommodates a family of 5 comfortably! We could walk down to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Celebrity home tours. Rooms were clean, comfortable and big enough. Great gym facilities and breakfast was a bonus.

Staff was very friendly and location was very good. Only a couple of minutes away from Hollywood Blvd.

Overall I had a very pleasant stay. Would definitely come back again if I come back to Hollywood.

not the best night's sleep as beds were not so comfy but good location.
remember to check your room carefully as anything left behind is just too difficult to get back as they can't organise anything for you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IAMMyKidsMom Excellent hotel, more than I like to spend
I took my family to Universal Studios and wanted to stay close to the theme park. I searched for a long time to find a safe and clean place to stay. We needed a room for 6 so I didn't have a ton of choices. I paid more than I usually pay for a hotel plus $22 for parking. This was high for me. However, we really enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly, the room was very clean, the hotel was safe and up to date. We very much enjoyed being at the hotel. The breakfast was delicious and not crowded like I had read. We weren't there on a weekend, that might have been why. The one thing that could have made the sleep quality better was having the curtains heavier so that the room could be darker and not being in a room above a busy street. It was a short drive to Universal Studios.

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.

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?
