True to its North Hollywood location, this 7-acre boutique property embodies a cool retro atmosphere that will transport you back to the glamour of 1970s L.A. Though the hotel completed a $20 million makeover in 2015, it didn't abandon its past: Rooms are a nod to the hotel's '70s roots with bright orange accents and vintage-inspired furniture, but they're also equipped with more modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and minifridges. When you're not in your room, take time to explore the rest of the property. The hotel offers complimentary activities for guests like its "Dive-In Movie Night," where a film is screened poolside, plus a gift shop featuring locally sourced and California-inspired items (think California wines and specialty cookbooks). Even though you're within walking distance to a bevy of eateries, you'll want to stick around for at least one cocktail at the trendy Lobby Bar and a bite at The Front Yard, the hotel's on-site restaurant. When you want to explore off-property, The Garland's got you covered there, too: The hotel offers complimentary trolley service to Universal Studios and CityWalk, which made it a standout among its L.A. peers according to recent guests. Travelers also loved the laid-back ambiance of the property, with many saying it was an ideal hideaway thanks to the comfortable rooms, unique public spaces and exceptional service.

This property is perfectly placed and perfectly named: Here, the ambiance exudes the old-school glamor that once made the surrounding neighborhood – Hollywood – famous. Numerous vacationers have detailed the fun atmosphere, the always lively pool (site of some of this town's parties) and the bubbly staff. The food is also fantastic: If you're a burger lover, fellow foodies insist you try one of the 25 Degrees restaurant's signature sandwiches. Guest rooms here receive praise for their comfy linens, flat-screen TVs, which feature HBO and Netflix connectivity and minibars. However, because this hotel is known for its parties, some guests complain of loud, sleepless nights. If that's something you can live with, though, you can find the Hollywood Roosevelt on Hollywood Boulevard, of course. Members of the iPrefer loyalty program use or earn points by choosing to stay here.

Travelers love how close this hotel is to some signature sites of old Hollywood — The Walk of Fame and TCL Chinese Theatre are just a stone's throw away. And the helpful hotel staff increases guests' enthusiasm for this Loews property. Just keep in mind that its central location (it's part of a complex that includes the Kodak Theatre, home of the Academy Awards) means you'll contend with a lot of noise, crowds and street traffic. Take a break from the hoopla with a detox facial or reflexology massage at the in-house Exhale Spa, or simply lounge for free outside at the fifth-floor pool. Aside from its amenities, this Loews also receives high praise for its spacious accommodations, which boast stylish decor and fantastic city views as well as amenities such as iHome radios, free Wi-Fi, Keurig coffee makers and flat-screen TVs, among other amenities.

It's easy to forget that this den (or rather, chateau) of antiquity is also a luxury hotel. Anyone with a healthy appetite for gossip knows of this Sunset Boulevard mainstay's heritage, and many of Hollywood's A-listers have partied, dined or lodged here. Over the years, however, Chateau Marmont has nurtured another type of reputation, with visitors focusing less on its salacious past and more on its one-of-a-kind amenities and friendly, attentive staff that's able to answer your every beck and call. European linens, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, 24-hour concierge service an outdoor heated pool are just some of the perks. But because the Chateau is still a popular spot for night owls and celebutantes, you might want to avoid a stay here if you're traveling with kids. When you're here, see how many celebrities you can spot at the on-site eatery, which serves up a menu of American cuisine.

This hotel has the perfect name: Much of the decor is dressed in red, and even the outer walls are backlit in a dramatic crimson hue. Hotel guests were quick to pick up on the Redbury's cutting-edge vibe, favorably reporting on this trendy and glam hotel (which is the brainchild of hotelier Sam Nazarian and celebrity photographer Matthew Rolston). But you'll also find substance at the stylish Redbury, as lodgers are just as complimentary of the spacious suites (there are 57 suites total), the well-stocked kitchenettes and the attentive staff. The restaurant, Cleo, is just as trendy as the rest of the hotel, serving up contemporary Middle Eastern cuisine in a suave atmosphere.
