True Romance (With less romance, and no gunfights) Mar 14, 2008
This hotel retains it's original style for the 1950s, but has been kept up through out the years to seem virtual new. It's kind of well known, having been used as a locations for shows as one of the CSIs, as well as Quentin Tarantino's [i]True Romance[/i].
Being as it is close to beautiful downtown Burbank, California, it isn't exactly centrally located. In good traffic, it's about 15 minutes to Hollywood and 20 minutes to downtown. By public transport, Hollywood is 20 minutes away, and downtown about 45. It's about 5 minutes by either method to Warner Brother Studios, and less than 10 to Universal Studios (although parking there is crazy costly. You are better to take the bus and get the free shuttle to the park from the bus/subway station.)
The room was well kept and clean. It was an oddly shaped, somewhat small room (a single in a corner) but through use of natural light from the window and the placement of the furniture it never felt crowded.
The hotel has a pool, internet, laundry facilities and it shares a restaurant with the hotel across the street (all run by the same company.) There's a large pharmacy located close by that is practically a grocery store, as well as a couple of different restaurant options. About a mile or two down the road is downtown Burbank, and you can find a shopping mall and grocery store. The hotel provides a small fridge, but no stove or microwave.
