Was like being among family - social enough but not a party house. Super central. I'd stay again for sure. And the calibre of people who were staying there was amazing - big names in the music industry.

The location was fantastic, only a few blocks from the Hollywood/Vine Metro so easy to get to from airport. Nice walk up to the Dolby, Chinese theatre and walk of fame. Clean, and only a few Pods available so it is nice and small, can get to know the other guests.

Close to the beach and Santa Monica Pier - about 5 mins walk. On Tuesdays you can get a discount for the red tour bus from next door, although you can get the tube/metro instead for less than 2 dollars. Hollywood & Highland is the best stop to get off for Hollywood. Staff were brilliant. Great garden area for chilling out in. Nice breakfast options. (Amazing Samuel French bookshop on Sunset Boulevard if you enjoy reading plays.)
