We were greeted with hospitality despite the late check-in. We felt welcomed by the owner. The staff is very, very nice and efficient. The place was very clean, comfortable, and nice hotel with parking facility and near Hollywood. It was a short and sweet stay. The place was easy to locate, parking is free. Our main reason for choosing El Royale was the proximity to the Walk of Fame. We liked the hotel. The room was a good size and we slept well.

This hotel looks like it was owned and operated by a man. Did not have a warm cozy touch at all. No drawers no closet no coffee no cups for water. We will not be back.

Beautiful little bungalow with car port. Very clean and nicely renovated. Parts of Los Angeles are sketchy this felt quiet and safe. I would definitely stay here again.

Very accessible. The room was just right for my family. And we enjoyed the breakfast too. The only thing i am not comfortable with is taking my credit card unsighted & gave me no printed receipt.

Room was nice, nothing too flashy but had a very clean look and feel to it. Staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast was great. Only about a mile from Universal Studios Hollywood, I would definitely come back for another stay.

Robert made our stay incredibly memorable. He was very personable and went above and beyond in every way. I love the history of the hotel as well as the beautiful remodel and flower covered walls. We enjoyed three very comfortable nights of sleep. The location made walking to and from Universal Studios very convenient. And we asked for the best viewing location of the Hollywood sign, Robert made sure we knew where to direct our Uber driver. I can’t recommend this location highly enough. What a wonderful piece of Hollywood history.

I don't think I have ever been happier in a hotel. This hotel provides parking (and honestly, offered us parking even the day we checked out so we wouldn't have to pay at Universal studios!). The room was simple and a bit worn, though updated (meaning, the sink had some chips, etc). The place was SPOTLESS though, the bed was comfy, the shower was magnificent, the breakfast was simple but tasty, AND they gave us cookies when we checked out. We couldn't hear traffic, and because there are garages between each room, I couldn't hear my neighbors at all either. I'm so ridiculously pleased with this place!
