What is the first thing I think about when planning a trip is what hotel to stay in. I really think I was a travel agent in a previous life because when i was a little girl I was always researching hotels, prices, flights. I mean I would put together proposal packages and present 3 options for family vacation every year! So Justin and I split our LA trip into two areas. Hollywood was our first stop.
We wanted something in a central so we could go to Universal Studios, Downtown LA, and the walk of fame easily. I wasn’t sure I would find all that in a hotel but then I found the Hollywood Hotel. We were a short 5-10 minute drive to all of those destination from the hotel. Talk about perfect!
The hotel is finishing up renovations so the rooms were stunning and the pool was the perfect way to relax. One area of the hotel I really loved was the courtyard. Our room had a cute balcony that overlooked the courtyard. It is the perfect place to hang out and every night from 5-7 they have the bar open and appetizers going around.
Being a hospitality student I can have pretty strong opinions about staff and how a hotel is run now that I know all the behind the scenes and what makes a good hotel. The staff were amazing, they really go out of their way to make you feel special and have a memorable stay. I give my greatest appreciation to the staff for allowing Justin and I to have a lovely stay and always welcome us with a warm smile and great suggestions for activities.
There are lots of Hollywood tours and packages you can book right at the hotel, and then the tourbus will pick you up at the hotel! I know next time I would love to hop on one of those tours. They have thought about it all.
Now lets just talk about breakfast, oh my goodness I have never had such an amazing complimentary breakfast before. With a chef there making fresh waffles and an omelette station with lots of toppings to pick, within a few minutes you watch your omelette come to life and it tasted amazing!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Hollywood Hotel, it was a wonderful experience and made our trip start off perfectly! Thank you to all the amazing staff and management!
I hope you all enjoy this fun video of our stay, and be sure to look at the Hollywood Hotel for your next stay 🙂
