Take a look at the best party hotels in Hollywood.
Located just south of Hollywood Boulevard, Dream Hollywood is a trendy, four-pearl property with plenty of high-style flourishes. The hotel’s 178 rooms and suites are luxe and contemporary, decked out with Smart TVs, iPads, and lavish minibars. But most guests aren't drawn to the property for its rooms, rather they come for the fun nightlife scene thanks to its popular bars, nightclubs, and restaurants attracting a glam crowd of locals along with guests. A large gym and rooftop pool round out the on-site features. Travelers may want to compare rates and amenities with W Hollywood, which has a similar party-centric vibe and stylishly modern rooms.
This 300-room Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, literally an L.A. landmark, combines the shimmer of silver-screen history with a cutting-edge party scene centered around its multiple bars and massive pool. A terrific casual restaurant is open 24 hours, and service is surprisingly good. The rooms, though well designed, are smaller than average for L.A.
Due to its location just off Hollywood Boulevard and its plentiful free amenities, the budget USA Hostels Hollywood is one of the most popular hostels in Los Angeles. There are 15 dorm and private rooms with air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and en-suite bathrooms. Dorms have lockers with outlets and private rooms offer flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges. Breakfast is free and set up for guests to make themselves. Other freebies include a shuttle to the beach, tours and activities, towels, and linens. Days Inn Hollywood/Universal Studios is a good option for those who need more space, a private room, and a pool. For those who prefer a hostel experience, it’s worth comparing prices at Hostelling International – Los Angeles/Santa Monica which is just a few minutes’ walk from Santa Monica beach.
Located on Hollywood Boulevard, W Hollywood is in the center of the neighborhood's party scene, and its bars and rooftop pool are popular local nightspots. This upscale hotel's 305 guest rooms are sleek and modern, with minimalist decor -- marble bathrooms add a touch of luxury. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, CD and DVD players, and iPod docks, but Wi-Fi comes with a fee. Some Suites add wet bars and private terraces. Many rooms have scenic views, and the rooftop pool has luxury cabanas to hang out in. Other features, such as Delphine restaurant, Bliss Spa, and a 24-hour fitness center, make the W Hollywood a popular choice, especially among those seeking a fun nightlife scene. Another option travelers could consider with a similar party vibe could be the Standard Hollywood.
The budget-friendly 72-room Days Inn Hollywood/Universal Studios has a pool and modern rooms equipped with microwaves and mini-fridges. The hotel is within walking distance of Hollywood attractions and nightlife. The hotel draws families, couples, and business travelers on a budget. For more Hollywood luxury, there’s the Loews Hollywood Hotel up the street directly on the Walk of Fame, but at a much higher price point. The Days Inn lacks a fitness center and full restaurant, but does have a pool and free breakfast.
The Redbury at Hollywood and Vine is a bohemian-chic boutique with 57 homey, eclectically designed suites. Guests can cook in their in-room kitchen, pop downstairs to Cleo, the Middle Eastern restaurant, walk half a block for sushi at Katsuya (both menus can be ordered for 24-hour in-room dining). The location is ideal for seeing the Hollywood Walk of Fame and TCL Chinese Theater (formerly, and more famously, known as Grauman’s Chinese Theater), but the neighborhood is continuing to evolve, and some parts are still seedy. Guests wanting a pool (something The Redbury lacks, along with a spa) could try The Hollywood Roosevelt, which has one of the largest pools in L.A.
