A reasonably priced hotel right in the heart of Hollywood.
This renovated, non-smoking hotel was once a Holiday Inn. Now, with upgrades including flat-screen televisions, 300-thread-count sheets, FACE amenities and room service, this Hilton Garden Inn has become a bona fide (if low-key) player on the Hollywood scene. Located a few blocks north of Hollywood and Highland (the huge mall where the Dolby Theater hosts the Oscars every year), as well as Grauman's Chinese Theater and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the hotel is a good home base if Hollywood, Universal Studios and the Hollywood Bowl are part of your trip agenda. Offering free wireless Internet, a small swimming pool, a hot tub and a restaurant and bar, this is a great choice for travelers on a budget.
