1999 N Sycamore Ave, Los Angeles, California, United States
"This hotel has a soul. It 's been there forever. The staff is amazing. the room are nice, i think the older building is best, where the ghost of past celebrities hang out. The restaurent in situ is a classic hollywood diner. The area is also very classic hollywood bohemian chic. love it all"
"Hi. My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hollywood Hills Hotel in August of 2012. At the time, it was part of the Magic Castle Hotel, owned by the same man. We checked in at the Magic Castle Hotel front desk and drove up the hill to the H.H. Hotel. Bada bing bada boom, easy breezy. We loved it there, and wanted to stay once again at the end of Feb. 2019. We were booked into the Magic Castle Hotel, and found that due to room renovations, our room had that ugly, cold, sterile, granite and chrome look, and was no longer cozy and comfy, the way they had once been. So we decided we would ask for a room up the hill instead at H.H., but turns out M.C. no longer owns the property. We could not find a phone number or any online booking for H.H. Hotel, so we drove up the hill to inquire personally. Now things get REALLY mysterious. There is a call box outside the gate leading onto the property. For manager, press 2. We did this repeatedly and got a message, "line is busy." We climbed around the back of the hotel and found a maintenance worker who said the manager is a woman named Nellie who keeps an office upstairs at the Yamashiro restaurant, which is right there literally across from the hotel. We could not gain entrance to the restaurant, locked. Then a fellow actually came out of the H.H. Hotel entrance gate, as if he lived there, on his way to work at Yamashiro. We inquired about Nellie and he said he would get her for us, and brought us inside the restaurant to wait. He disappeared. 20 minutes later, we asked another guy where he disappeared to, and he said he would go talk to Nellie himself. Then he disappeared. Eventually, the 2nd guy came back and said Nellie had requested all our information, and would contact us about renting a room. He also said that the only way to book this hotel online is through air bnb website. We left, Nellie never contacted us, and this hotel is absolutely NOT listed on the air bnb website. Now Trip Advisor has been sending me promo for it, as I have googled the damn place so often to see what the hell is going on, and they give the option to put in dates and book a room. I have put in multiple dates from now up til 6 months from now, and I get, "This hotel is sold out on those dates." THERE IS SOMETHING REALLY FISHY GOING ON WITH THIS HOTEL. If anyone knows what the actual truth is about Hollywood Hills Hotel, PLEASE write in to this website and enlighten us all. "Nellie" certainly doesn't want anyone's business, so what's the story? Please someone reply to my query. Thank you!!!!!"
