Hotel Review: Hollywood Celebrity Hotel

We Filipinos are known worldwide for our hospitality. When my relatives and friends learned that I am coming for a short vacation to the US, they graciously offered their homes for CS and I to stay to. Sounds tempting as it may save us a few hundred bucks but since we did not want to impose and be a burden, we decided to look for a hotel in Hollywood that's within our budget range. Besides, the car that my Uncle let us borrow already saved us a couple of hundred dollars.

A tourist class hotel in downtown Hollywood, the Hollywood Celebrity Hotel is a bed and breakfast accommodation situated just 10 minutes away by foot from numerous dining options, entertainment centers and the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. From my Auntie's house in Carson, it took us about 40 minutes to reach our home in Los Angeles for the next 5 days.

Check-in was easy peasy. The hotel is dated but well-maintained with the hallway and guest rooms decorated with posters of classic movies and Hollywood icons. Only downside was that there's no lift so guests staying in the 2nd floor are obliged to carry their luggage one flight up.

All guest rooms are non-smoking and suited to cater to all types of guests. Our spacious executive room can accommodate 2 adults comfortably with room features that include a king-size bed, complimentary Wi-Fi, mini-fridge, dining area, HDTV with cable channels and a laptop-sized safe.

Room rate at Hollywood Celebrity Hotel thru Agoda ranges between Php8,000 to Php11,000 inclusive of breakfast for two. Advance booking is a must if you wish to avail of the cheapest rate.

Pros: Old Hollywood charm accommodation (if you're into it), huge and clean rooms, value for money room rates for a fantastic location in the heart of Hollywood, extremely friendly and helpful staff, availability of an on-site laundry machine and secured pay parking.

Cons: Same breakfast menu everyday and the absence of an elevator -- but other than those two, we absolutely loved our stay at the Hollywood Celebrity Hotel.
