Great Weekend Getaway!
I stayed in this unique apartment for a quick 2 night getaway to celebrate my wife's birthday. We live in New Jersey, but have family in LA. As a surprise I had a friend of hers from high school meet us in California. This place worked out perfectly. The classic Hollywood style of the building, along with the location, were exactly what we were looking for. The apartment itself was perfect for the three of us, and could have handled another person easily. The place was clean and functional. Was the water pressure less than ideal? Yeah, but it is a registered historical building that pushes water from the basement to the penthouse...that is to be expected, and was certainly not an actual problem. Cons - Age of the building (slow elevator, small bathrooms, lack of expansive parking)...but this is also a "pro"...see below Pros - Age of the building (unique chance to stay in a historical building that has been really well updated/renovated as would be allowed in a historic building). - Location (freeway AND walking convenient) - Responsive/helpful management (Ben was very responsive and the whole weekend was handled very professionally). - Outdoor space!! (we used the 5th floor deck to host some friends for wine and munchies...and it was ideally suited to our needs there.) We had a great time and would highly recommend The Hollywood Penthouse to anyone looking for a "Hollywood" type experience. Thanks!!
