Editor’s Review of Loews Hollywood Hotel

If you've ever wanted to know what it feels like to be a rock star, this hotel is for you. Right from entering the lobby, the floor lighting and pumping bass let you know that you've "gone Hollywood." There is little separation, in fact, from the lobby and the hotel's sleek and sexy bar area, which bustles with activity at night -- giving guests the feeling like they've walked right into the action. Rooms are similarly out-of-the-ordinary, with funky pillows on the beds and Hollywood-themed photo art on the walls and views of the Hollywood Hills out the large floor-to-ceiling windows. Ask for a room with a view of the iconic Hollywood sign or Capitol Records building to complete the experience.

Despite the "adult" feel of the
... more hotel, there are many amenities that make this a great place to bring the family, including a fun rooftop pool area with a view down onto Hollywood Boulevard. The hotel's entrance, however, is on Highland Avenue -- importantly a half a block off Hollywood strip, which shelters it somewhat from the neighborhood "scene." But it's also close enough so that you can easily walk out onto the Walk of Fame anytime you need that fix of star power.

The hotel is attached to the Hollywood & Highland Shopping mall, a huge indoor complex that guests can access through a special key-card operated door on the third floor of the hotel. It offers plenty of shopping for independent teens, and direct access to the Chinese Theater with all of its movie star handprints in the concrete, without having to go outside, which can be an important factor at night. Hollywood has cleaned up its act somewhat in past years, but it is still a surprisingly seedy area, with homeless people and "ladies of the evening" conspicuously plying their trade. The Loews Hollywood Hotel offers access to all of the excitement and glamour of old Hollywood while still providing a safe and comfortable buffer for families. less

We chose this hotel because it's right in the heart of all things touristy in Hollywood and that's what my trip with my 10-year-old daughter was all about. And it was great because of its location. Our hotel room had a view of ...

The Loews Hollywood Hotel has 628 guestrooms and suites, spread amongst 20 floors -- obviously, the best views of the Hollywood Hills and Hollywood sign are from the upper floors, so be sure to request those when booking. All rooms have free and reliable Wi-Fi service. Cribs and rollaways are available for a fee, but maximum room occupancy is four, even in suites.

2 Double Beds
All of the rooms in the hotel are a spacious 400 square feet. These include two double beds, comfortable sitting chairs, and a desk. Even with an optional rollaway, they have a maximum occupancy of four. The rooms are sleek and stylish, with grey and white décor -- but include splashes of color from funky pillows and large, iridescent photos on the wall that turn images of the Hollywood streetscape into near abstract artworks. All rooms include ergonomically designed desk chairs, and some nice extra touches, like USB ports built into the nightstand and desk. They also include well-stocked mini-bars, with an additional refrigerator available upon request. Bathrooms include a bathtub/shower combo.

The room categories are divided not by amenities, but by view -- either Standard (with no special view); City View, which face south towards downtown LA; Hollywood Sign, which face north towards the Hollywood Hills; Capitol-View, which face west towards the famous Capitol Records Building; or Skyline, which are located on the higher floors and offer sweeping views of either the Hollywood Hills or the downtown skyline. Be sure to request the view you desire for a backdrop to your Hollywood lifestyle.

These rooms include a king bed in place of two doubles; with an optional rollaway, they can accommodate three people. They are also divided into categories by view: Standard, City-View, Hollywood Hills, Capitol-View, and Skyline.

Studio King Suite
These rooms are larger than standard guestrooms at 625 feet. In addition to the standard amenities, they include a sitting area with comfortable and colorful chairs in shades of port wine and burgundy, along with a long sleeper sofa. Bathrooms include standing glass-door showers. Maximum occupancy is three. They face south towards the city skyline or north towards the Hollywood sign.

Studio Two King Suite
With the same size and comforts of a Studio King Suite, these suites feature two king-sized beds. With a rollaway, they can sleep five. They face north towards the Hollywood sign.

Corner King Suite
Larger than standard suites at 1,020 square feet, these suites feature panoramic views of Hollywood, along with a king-size bed, a sitting area with full-size sleeper sofa and a small dining table. Bathrooms include stand-up showers. Maximum occupancy is three.

Director's Suite
The same size as a junior suite at 625 square feet, the Director's Suites have the added feature of a bedroom that separates the king bed sleeping area from the sitting room of comfy chairs and a full-size sleeper sofa. It also features a larger desk and chair, and stand-up shower in the bathroom. Maximum occupancy is three. They face north towards the Hollywood Hills or south towards downtown.

Highland Suite
These corner suites are enormous at 1,425 square feet, providing plenty of room to stretch out, along with panoramic views of Hollywood and downtown. They include a separate king bedroom, as well as a fold-out sleeper sofa in a large living room area complete with a large dining room table and wet bar. Maximum occupancy is four.

Producer's Suite
This enormous apartment will show you why it's the producer who accepts the Oscar -- with 1,600 square feet of space, it includes a panoramic view of the Hollywood Hills and the city's skyline, along with a master bedroom with king bed and a living room with sitting area and sleeper sofa. It also includes a wet bar and full-size refrigerator, as well as large dining room table that can seat six. The bathroom includes both a walk-in shower and a large tub, along with a double vanity. Maximum occupancy is four people. The suite also includes an outdoor balcony with a view of the Hollywood sign.

Panorama Suite
Here's where you can fulfill your fantasy of playing a baby grand piano while overlooking the Los Angeles skyline. This vast suite includes over 3,000 square feet of space, with cathedral ceilings and everything you need to entertain your fellow movie stars -- living room with sleeper sofa, wet bar, full-size refrigerator, dining table that can seat 10 people, and an extra half-bathroom. The bedroom has a king-size bed and its own master bath with a steam shower, large Jacuzzi tub, and double vanity. Maximum occupancy is four people. And of course, the suite lives up to its name with a view to die for -- all of downtown Los Angeles, the Capitol Records building, and the Hollywood Hills.
