Careful when following satnavs to the Hollywood sign. We were directed to Griffiths observatory, which was very interesting but would leave you a 4 mile hike up to the sign. To get a bit closer we later went to Lake Hollywood Park, which is in a residential area.
1.8ml goat track to Lee's summit. Then a 0.8ml treck across the ridge line to the top side of the Hollywood sign. Great early evening walk, but not for the faint at heart, the track is slippery lots of loose gravel. 10 & 12 year old boys were a home!
Friendly Staff Clean and spacious room Beverage tokens and daily bottles of water Close to Warner Brothers Studios (walking distance), Universal Studios ($7 Uber), Hollywood Blvd ($10 Uber) and the Hollywood Sign ($10 Uber). Shopping centre across the road (Lounge and Bar, Italian Restaurant, Bank of America/ATMs, Vons Supermarket, Starbucks, Drugstore and Bea Beas Breakfast Restaurant)
This is a great place to stay away from the traffic and crowds of central LA. It’s really handy for Disney and Universal (and they have a shuttle!) and is not far from the Hollywood sign.
