Villa Delle Stelle
This is the only place on the list that's not close to the Hollywood tourist attractions, but I like it so much that I had to include it. It's at 6087 Harold Way, near the intersection of Sunset and Gower
You'll think you've borrowed a friend's chic Hollywood apartment when you stay at the Villa Delle Stelle, and it's an especially good bargain if you use both bedrooms.
They have only 5 suites.

I'm sorry to say that I can't recommend the famous Hollywood Roosevelt. An insensitive and poorly done renovation a few years ago rendered it unattractive and uncomfortable. To make matters worse, the on-site nightclub is leased to another company, making it (and their swimming pool) off-limits to hotel guests in the evening.
