Hollywood is loaded with landmark movie theaters and iconic Los Angeles attractions—we certainly understand why it tops tourists' to-do lists. While the Walk of Fame is too clogged with bootleg superheroes to exude much elegance, you can still find a bit of that old glamour in the luxurious Hollywood hotels, or save your money for other Los Angeles indulgences by staying in a more budget-friendly option. It's not just a popular neighborhood for tourists to stay—Hollywood is centrally located and it's easy to get to many other parts of Los Angeles using the subway, bus lines, or freeways that run through it. Here are the best hotels in Hollywood for every traveler's budget.

This 1927 landmark, a beautiful example of Spanish colonial design, once more welcomes the A-listers who frequented it during Hollywood's heyday. The hotel is at its most dramatic at the discreet Library Bar, The Spare Room (an intimate bar and bowling alley) and around the buzzing pool. Make sure to stop for a meal at the Public Kitchen and Bar and burger joint 25 Degrees.
