Fodor's Review

Close to the action (and traffic) of Hollywood, this former apartment building faces busy Franklin Avenue and is a quick walk to the Metro Red Line stop at Hollywood & Highland. There's nothing thematic about the guest room decor, but larger rooms have full kitchens with eating areas and all bathrooms were recently refreshed. The decent-size heated pool is always open, and the patio has lots of greenery. Continental breakfast (often with a magician performing), 24-hour snacks, and laundry service are complimentary. Guests at the hotel can secure dinner reservations and attend magic shows at the Magic Castle, a private club in a 1908 mansion next door for magicians and their admirers. (The club requires jacket and tie for men; kids are allowed only during brunch on weekends.)
