Prós: The service staff was great, enjoyed the hotel staff cars (Mercedes and Rolls Royce) taking us to shopping locations/lunch... and picking us up.
The hotels artwork, decor and architecture is one of the best in the World, and we have travelled most of Europe and stayed in their 5 start hotels. The Beverly Wishire gets 5 Stars+ in my book, my 2nd time their and I will return again soon.

Prós: The beverly wilshire is just an excellent hotel with warm and cozy enviroment, luxurious and really fancy.
Guest is very good served
Contras: The shower is so weak and has no presure, that you hardly can take a shower.
Contras: I booked and paid for a Deluxe King Room with view of Hollywood sign. I received a room near the elevators with a constant machine and elevator running noise. I asked to be moved and was told someone would be right up and after 10 minutes I grew tired of waiting and went down to the front desk. This was already 11PM. I was taken to a new room that had an adjoining door with a party going on in the adjacent room. I asked to be moved AGAIN, eventually to a room with queen bed. The beds were too soft for my taste. There was a curly hair on the soap dish in the shower. I will never stay there again.
Contras: The mattresses were too old and lacked firmness.
Prós: The staff was great. It was right in the middle of Hollywood, nice and clean. Loved the shopping connected to it.
Prós: Staff was ecellent
Contras: Parking a little too expensive
Prós: IT WAS OUR FIRST TIME TO CALIFORNIA FOR MY WIFE AND I ,WE WERE VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE HOTEL .HOW SPOTLESS EVERYTHING WAS.THE MEN IN THE CONCEIER DESK CHRIS,AND NINO WHERE VERY HELPFUL.THE BUFFET BREAKFEAST WAS THE BEST.
Prós: Hotel was beautiful! Staff was friendly and attentive. Location was fantastic! Our room had a phenomenal view of the Hollywood sign. Pool was gorgeous. All in all, it was the best experience we could have hoped for on our first trip to Tinseltown.
Prós: The hotel was located in a perfect location. I was close to everything I wanted to be near. The pool and other facilities was the best. The room was also very cozy.
Prós: As soon as we stepped out of the car we were treated with such surprising care. The man at valet, Ever (that's his name- EVER, how cute is that?) was so nice that my fiancée and I looked at each other and just shook our heads and laughed. We weren't used to customer service like this. We went to check in early, 1pm, and Melanie at the front desk was able to upgrade us to a corner suite! The entire staff was so professional but without being too stuffy. The hotel was beyond our expectations.
Contras: Not a big deal but there was one little Q-tip outside our room for our stay. We kind of joked that they gave us the Q-tip suite. We also couldn't find coffee in the morning inside the hotel. We had our coffee maker in the room but needed more and didn't want to pay $15 for a pot of coffee at the restaurant.
Prós: The staff were very friendly, and helpful when I checked in. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The mini-bar key didn't work, and it would've been nice to have a fridge to keep some drinks in the fridge, but I didn't inquire with the staff, and I assume they would've rectified that for me if I had.
Nice and central, so traveling for business doesn't mean limited options for food and amenities.
Prós: Loved the location of this hotel. Service was great as well!
Prós: The staff was amazing!! So helpful! The rooms were very comfortable!! The beds were great!! We had a room with a view, and it was fantastic.
Contras: The one big thing that I didn't like was, that there was no fridge in the room. We asked for one and got one for a small charge. The other only thing I didn't like was, that there was no microwave in the room.
Contras: the accommodation is terrible, short of staff, everything is so expensive, I'm expecting five star accommodation, instead I'm getting a terrible room with nothing to offer, I wouldn't recommend to any friend of mine.
Prós: Good location; great proximity to downtown restaurants and shops. Bed was comfortable, front desk staff was friendly.
Contras: Bathroom was dingy and difficult to use. Floor, shower and sink basin are concrete and not desirable in any way. Bathroom sink ackward and not conducive to even washing hands. Floor looked dirty. I expected much more from a traditional BH Hotel. Spent a brief moment in the bar. Bar staff was inattentive and aloof. Thermostat in the room was broken and the room was cold all night. I'm the morning, no valet until 7:00 a.m. I had to fetch my own car from the parking garage across the street. I am not likely to return...
Contras: Cramped room
No drinking glasses in room
No where to open luggage except on bed
Prós: Loved the diner on the property. Food was fabulous!
Contras: I booked a stay in early February, more than 3 and a half months before my actual stay the the Best Western Hollywood Hills. Upon arrival, I was asked for a "voucher" and supplied my email confirmation. After looking over the email for 15+ minutes, the receptionist finally told me that they had overbooked the hotel and would have to send me to a partner hotel for the night. For my troubles, I was given 2 breakfast vouchers and my cab was paid for. The partner hotel was over 20 minutes away, putting me further from my location for the next day. The partner hotel was the "Beverly Laurel Motor Hotel" an extremely dated and generally unkempt motel. I was thoroughly displeased with this room, as well as with the adjacent greasy spoon diner. Had I known I was going to end up in this roach motel, I never would have booked through Best Western. I highly suggest booking through a different hotel, not worth the risk of being overbooked. In all fairness to the BW Hollywood Hills, it did appear to be fairly nice. Unfortunately, I didn't have the luxury of staying here.
Prós: Loved the location and being close to everything in Hollywood. The restaurant downstairs was also pretty good.
Contras: Unfortunately, the Internet/wifi was down all morning until we left at our checkout time. Other than that, things were good.
Prós: place was very clean and good size room. The biggest restroom in any hotel in hollywood so far, comes in handy when sharing a room. Everything was close by and in a nice neighborhood. Would stay here again.
Contras: You could hear everything in the hallway. But everyone staying on our floor that night was not that loud when walking through the hallways. I know that supply and demand is the way the hotel rooms sell but $180.00 + $20.00 for one night on a week day was a bit much for me.
Prós: The hotel has a great location. The room was very bice and clean and we even had the view of the hollywood sign. Overall, very friendly staff and great place
Prós: I liked the spacious shower, and that they had fridge, micro and coffee in the room. We never had a chance to try the coffee shop, but enjoyed the stay overall. Didn't bring my bathing suit or I would have tried the pool. Our room was clean, comfortable bed. We would stay here again.
Prós: I didn't expect the rooms to be as spacious as it was. The room was great, the staff was very helpful and the location to the boulevard was unbeatable. Also, it's located next to the best doughnut shop in LA Kettle Glazed Doughnuts.
Prós: We really liked the restaurant at the hotel, so nice not to have to search for a restaurant to eat at. Great food.
Prós: Stayed overnight, we had to do somethng in the area and needed a place to stay close to our event.
Everything went smooth,: booking, confirmation, check-in & check-out
Nice place to stay in Hollywood, very Historical-Retro vibe.
Prós: Room and bed was very comfortable
Contras: Shower is big but curtain is very small so it is cold when using the shower and the floor outside gets all wet
Prós: GREAT LOCATION, AWAY FROM THE BUSY PART OF TOWN, IN NICE RESIDENTIAL AREA. PLACES TO EAT, SHOP AND EXPLORE L.A. NEARBY. FRIENDLY ACCOMODATING STAFF AND CLEANING CREW. EASY TO GET TO.
Prós: The hotel is tired. It has two elevators that hold ten passengers. One of the elevators was often out of order. Sometimes there were guests stuck in the elevator. There was no way to use the stairs so wait times to get to our room were long. Our room was small. The TV was not working well. Mediocre at best.
Prós: Great rooms. Great bar. Wonderful onsite restaurants. Wonderful location. Fantastic staff.
Prós: I told them we were staying for a special occasion and they had the availability to upgrade our room. Very accommodating made the night special for us, despite the many events happening in and arround the hotel (holiday parties etc.)
Prós: i liked the look of the rooms. They were nicely decorated. The size of the pool was great - lots of room for everyone. The location was very convenient to a Metro and to the touristy area.
Contras: The pool area was a little confusing. It was hard to tell which chairs were taken. The chairs by the shallow end of the pool were occupied by people who didnt seem to want to get wet which was frustrating. The hotel room felt like a store. Too many items for sale. This also took up precious space for personal items.
Prós: Music was great as well as quality of guests.
Contras: Staff were very rude and not helpful. Would not accept cash for incidental room fee
Contras: My room smelled terrible. I didn't like the staff because they were very rude to me for walking around the hotel at night.
Prós: - Fresh and well-maintained hotel (especially considering its age)
- Very cool decor in the main areas and rooms are well-appointed
- Very nice staff
- Pool is nice (although it can be crowded during the day, and has a 'bouncer' stationed at the entrance - this is needed given the popularity, but is a little much)
Contras: - The first room I stayed in was small, had a view of nothing but the rooftop A/C units, and had incredibly noisy ventilation system. The very polite front desk staff moved me to a different (and much nicer) room upon request
- $10 bottles of water in the room. Come on guys, a complimentary bottle of water won't kill the margins.
- 'Hotel-branded' flip flops for sale at $20 instead of the inexpensive complimentary slippers that are normally available at hotels of this level
Prós: The decor and friendly staff, the 24hr diner and the pool party.
Contras: The lift was close by and was a little noisy early hours of the morning.
Prós: The service and room were phenomenal
Prós: Everything. Joe at front desk was sooo nice
Contras: The rain!! Booo
Prós: Location, concierge was nice, and the pool was fabulous
Prós: The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location, very close to many tourist attractions. Great restaurants and bars inside hotel. Very cool atmosphere
Contras: Very hard to sleep in when staying by the pool. Lots of noise every morning from both the hallway and the pool. Hallways smell like weed. Even though we knew we had to pay for parking, $36 a night is a bit extreme
Prós: The staff is very nice and the balcony in the room was a nice touch.
Contras: Very inflexible, no option for late checkout or even a cup of coffee on the roof... forget complmentary coffee
The bathroom was pretty run down, there were stickers on the ceiling and they didn't even provide bodywash!
There was only ONE waitress at the cocktail bar on the roof. It took forever to get a menu and then even more time to place my order. I had one drink and just said "forget it."
I've stayed at their hotels in NYC in the past and was blown away by the amazing experience I had there, here I wasn't
For the price, I can't say I'd stay at this location again.
Prós: Pool area / decor / location / staff
Prós: The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, the facilities were great, the roof deck was nice and the location was ideal.
Contras: That fact that they are charging present day prices but have updated anything since the 60's this is not four diamond worthy.
Prós: All the staff was very friendly and helpfull
Contras: The dinning room is too small and the food not very good.
Contras: Horrible access into and out-of hotel. You have to walk through a coffee shop to enter the hotel, and the rear-entry for cars / limos etc was a very narrow alley that was frequently choked up with delivery vans... it was hopeless! I would have expected more.

Contras: The room had a raid/bug spray odor. The shower although beautifully marble tiled, had a methane smell, perhaps sewer gas while in use. It is also very small.
No bathtub. $ 200 + for this room.
Spent $100 less at the comfort inn in Sherman Oaks and the room was superior.
Go figure ....
Prós: This is a great little hotel in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of Beverly Hills. Unique, convenient and pleasant. Rooms are not too big, but very well appointed. I got a great deal through Kayak and would definitely stay here again.
Contras: The room looked nothing like the pictures and the free breakfast was not as described
Prós: close to Hollywood Walk of Fame
Prós: Friendly staff and Clean rooms
Prós: The location is excellent! We walked easily to Hollywood Boulevard Walk- and the excellent restaurant Bossa Nova. Score!
Contras: This is an average hotel- nothing special. I booked for my children to be able to swim, but was not comfortable with the look of the pool. If you are spending nights only, it is satisfactory.
Contras: yes, worst hotel i meet
Prós: Location was good. Hotel staff was nice.
Contras: The guests in next room were smoking. I had asked for non smoking rooms due to health issues. Cigarette butts were in the hallway.
Prós: It is very close to the walk of hollywood stars and Kodiak theater. It was clean and safe and I did didn't hear any traffic. Good litttle breakfast and the price is right.
Prós: The manager I met, was very friendly and helpful. I was happy with the room size & accommodations. There was parking right in front of my room.
Contras: When we first walked in, the room smelled like cigarettes. & anytime we left & came back.. The same smell was there again. Also, there was parking right in front of my room.. But the gate to get outside would be deadbolt locked. /: so inconvenient
Prós: Good price. Good location. Great staff help.
Contras: The room was sold as non-smoking, but it smelled strongly of cigarettes.
Prós: Close to the walk way.
Contras: Staff had a poor attitude, dingy, needs update, shower ha NO water pressure, there was a bug in the bathroom, felt very seedy...
Prós: Break fast was ok the rest is worst. I paid for two bed there was no two beds
Prós: the location
Contras: the room smelled somewhat like smoke when I got there
Prós: The room was big and pretty clean. the bed was pretty confortable and the air conditioner worked fine. You get good value for what you pay.
Contras: The elevator is pretty old. This is my second stay in the hotel, and last time a person got trapped in it. it should be overhauled or changed otherwise.
Prós: Spacious room
Prós: newness of furniture, TV. Comfort of bed. Function of air-conditioning. parking.
Contras: Smell in halls. size of room. price. general skank of the whole place. I understand that this is a high-demand area, and several features were done well, but for $150/night they could surely improve the dingy tired feel of the place. I travel a LOT and stay in 2-3 star national chains like Days Inn all the time. This one is over-priced and sub-par compared to others. If you're a family or group of friends/bros who are touring hollywood, then go for it. If not, you can find elsewhere in LA that's better for le$$.
Prós: Next door to in and out burger, great breakfast, great location
Contras: It smelled weird
Prós: Location was convenient.
Contras: Requested quiet end of rooms. Did not matter because walls thin and can hear people talking down hall.
Prós: The attention from the employees
Contras: Found a roach walking around the walls and a cricket in the bathroom
Prós: the location (walking distance to subway stations), the friendly staff, the rooms
Contras: hollywood blvd
Contras: No parking
Prós: It was 7 minutes from Universal Studios Hollywood. The room appeared to be really clean.
Contras: Their very small parking garage was full. There wasn't any street parking available. We had to park down the street and pay $25 to park in that lot. For that $25 more, we could have stayed at a much nicer hotel that had parking for us. We were trying to save money by staying here and it cost us more because of parking.
Contras: Thin walls, loud, beds as comfortable as the floor. Hallways smelled. Terrible parking.
Contras: Parking was horrible
Prós: Nothing especially when you end up paying way too much to stay in a crack house
Contras: There was no parking is there were people screaming up and down the hallways there was smoking in non-smoking rooms and when I woke up in the morning for the little sleep I could get there was throw up in the hallway and none of the employees had any idea I was even there not worth it never stay there again.
Contras: Parking was unavailable. Website said there would be parking. I use hotel.com a lot (need a room tonight) however I no longer will use unless I get a refund
Prós: Clean room, friendly staff, close to Hollywood Blvd
Contras: Beds extremely uncomfortable and staff not very friendly at all. I attempted to call the front desk several times when we first arrived but no answer what's so ever (almost as if the guy at the front desk avoided talking to me)
Prós: A localização (curta distância de estações de metrô), a equipe simpática, os quartos
Contras: Hollywood Blvd
Contras: Sem estacionamento
Contras: Paredes finas, barulhento, camas tão confortáveis como o chão. Corredores cheirando mal. Estacionamento horrível.
Prós: Room was filthy and dilapidated, threw away socks after walking on floor. Bathroom was terrible, internet did not work on any devices, breakfast was a joke. The free parking was not free with a hand receipt. Checked out early and went to another hotel.
Contras: The question should be is there anything we liked about the hotel? The location was ok. Worst place I've stayed in 20 or 30 years.
Prós: GREAT VALUE AND NICE ROOM
Contras: PARKING WAS NOT FREE AS ADVERTISED
Prós: The location was excellent.
Contras: The room had a dirty smell to it, but we were able to air it out.
Prós: It was in a convenient location, close to major attractions and the Metro. The complimentary morning donuts were good.
Contras: The hotel staff was not helpful. They charged $10 a night for parking, despite being told the parking was free. They refused to give me an extra towel. The room was noisy; you could hear every step above. The breakfast was late.
Prós: It was very close to universal city.
Contras: They tried to charge me for parking although its advertised as free parking. The continental breakfast is a donut and coffee and there is no room to sit and eat. You have to pay $5 deposit for each room key. The room was dirty and the beds were horrible.
Prós: Location. Served our purpose as we only needed a place to sleep.
Prós: It was right next to where I needed to go and it has free parking. Perfection.
Prós: I liked the close location to Rose Bowl.
Contras: The room smelled dirty, bathroom was dirty looking, not crisp, dirty carpet. Rusty windows etc.
Contras: So many fruits flies in the room. I think it came in from the bathroom window needs fix? But I think it's LA. ?? I saw it many places...even at Starbucks, etc in Hollywood.
Prós: It was clean and very comfortable.
Contras: No nothing wrong would recommend to any one.
Prós: My room was in good order and very clean. Staff was helpful with area directions. Breakfast was simple yet more than expected.
Contras: The neighborhood was questionable so I didn't like being out after dark.
Prós: The manager was really nice and helpful.
Prós: It is very close to the attractions and good restaurants. The staff and the manager/owner was very friendly.
Contras: The elevator was not working and the room was small. We were on the third floor so taking luggage up 3 flights was annoying. The property seemed pretty old.
Prós: The location met our needs.
Contras: Hotel did not in any way meet expectations. The room was extremely tiny, there were multiple things broken and/or badly patched, and checking in was a hassle (the computer was broken?) This was a 1* $---/night hotel, NOT a 2* $---/nt hotel. Rip off! Angry
Prós: Breakfast, staff
Contras: Bathroom in poor condition, could gave been cleaner too
Prós: Location was great. Accommodations were excellent. The owner/manager was very willing to work with our schedule. Beds were very comfortable for sleeping.
Contras: Room was small.
Prós: The location
Contras: Kind of noisy. Parking
Prós: Very close to Hollywood Boulevard. We would walk a few blocks to Hollywood Blvd. each day and walk back at night. On Hollywood Blvd you can buy the tours cheaper than at the hotel. Compare prices. Breakfast was good. Consisted of oatmeal, waffles, eggs.
Contras: Nothing I didn't like. Hotel is older and don't expect much and you will be happy. Room was clean. Staff was friendly. Close to Hollywood Blvd.
Prós: Free breakfast and cable TV.
Prós: Convenient to everything. Excellent breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Contras: Just a few minor things. Hinges on bathroom door were all loose and would not close completely, and the carpet really needs to be cleaned ,Feet got dirty just walking to the bathroom from the bed with bare feet.
Prós: Clean sheets. Lots of space. Great location for the price.
Contras: Do not drink the water from the tap or the free coffee from the continental breakfast. Stayed there for three nights with a friend. The first night we celebrated with some old friends and thought we were just hungover in the morning. We drank a lot of water from the tap trying to counter the it. The second morning (not hungover), my friend and I drank a few cups of free coffee while waiting for a friend to pick us up. Both of us got the shakes, sweats and felt nauseous. Didn't put it together until the next morning when I drank more of the free coffee while waiting for a my ride to the airport. Same symptoms. My driver told me he had another guest from the hotel say the same thing.
Prós: Loved the look and the set up and the modern rooms
Contras: The people who run the hotel are super unfriendly. They 'lost' my reservation and didn't care to find it until booking.com called them. They also refused to move their Mercedes out of the circle drive so we could get through and instead told us to back into the busy intersection
Contras: the renovations were skin deep and didn't extend to the $150 a night room I was in! The need for some paint and attention to detail were VERY evident.
The front desk staff was unfriendly and unhelpful.
NO facilities other than a tiny pool and a truly dreadful continental breakfast area.
