Sportsmen's Lodge Review

The sprawling five-story hotel, an L.A. landmark with a good location, is under new ownership and management and thus has a new contemporary look. There are new sleek white booths in the coffee shop but the same popular menu of American classics; breakfast is a notable good value. The Olympic-size pool and patio with outdoor bar (summer only) remain, as do the extra-wide halls and high-ceilinged rooms. The adjacent event center is famed for its storied Hollywood connections. Inquire about hotel packages.

    tourists or family best moderate hotel in L.A.

    we live in the area & when friends visit from out of the country (or relatives) this is a great place to put them; reasonable price, clean, giant Olympic heated pool, self-service laundry room, cheap coffee shop & best of all guests can walk to shops (during the day) or walk to local restaurants SAFELY (at night) or take a 5 min. cab ride to one of the best sushi bars Sushi Katsu-Ya about 1.5 miles east of the Lodge! Be it in-laws, foreign guests or their teenaged sons, everyone we have put here has LOVED the place. A fresh fare supermarket is directly across the street, so they can stock up on snacks/water, parking is free, terrific tourist excursion desk, Avis car rental & decent restaurant... but the black swans on their green (dyed) brook is the piece du resistance! They are about 2 miles from Universal Studios & run a free shuttle for guests.
