The Prospect is truly a gem. I booked a solo night as a treat to myself and am so happy I did. Kiki and everyone at the front desk was inviting, cheery and welcoming when I checked in, and not only was my room ready early, but I got an upgrade! The whole property is so well appointed, beautifully designed and just has an air of something really special.

While I went out to meet friends, I couldn't wait to get back to The Prospect to take advantage of every single offering within my 24-hour stay: I had a glass of wine in the courtyard by the fire (the minibar selections are terrific and very well priced), took a long bath in the claw foot tub, read a magazine in a Derek Rose London robe - it was heaven! I had to do some work early the next morning and even that was enjoyable since the room was equipped with delicious espresso pods and a little nook to sit at. When I finished working, I headed to the lobby to read the paper, sip on homemade green juice and dig into a delicious croissant. A few other solo guests were doing the same and it was so cozy.

So, in conclusion - if you stay here, give yourself enough time to STAY here. It's a dreamy little oasis in the middle of Hollywood that really takes you to another time and place. Cannot wait to be back! Thanks to Joe, Kiki and the rest of The Prospect team for an amazing stay.

Oh my gosh! Our stay at the Prospect was AMAZING!!!! Literally every person on staff was so friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The room was GORGEOUS, the location of the hotel was fantastic (walkable to Hollywood bowl, Hollywood Blvd), the courtyard was quaint and charming, and the security was amazing. What I loved most is that the Prospect staff focused on the details: the branded sanitizing wipes, the toilet paper sticker, the bath salts, music playing upon arrival, the handwritten thank you note, etc. Hands down, I would recommend the Prospect to anyone traveling to LA.

Totally Awesome! You can't imagine that this hotel exists where it does; especially a block away from Hollywood Blvd. Nate and his staff and Max the dog of course were awesome and are a great representation of what customer service is all about! My wife and I stayed here for two nights and we didn't want to leave. The hotel is nicely decorated and the courtyard is fantastic and you don't even know that the craziness is down the street. Each room is also decorated with black, gold and white just like the lobby and the bed and bathroom are up to par with elegance that is scattered throughout the property. I highly recommend the Prospect and we will be back most definitely! One other thing that we loved was the bottomless mimosas until they ran out upon arrival on Saturday afternoon; however I admit I was wanting the same on Sunday and hopefully suggest that they do this every night at the Prospect! Look no further on trying to find a stay in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood or Hollywood; I highly suggest staying here! Cheers!

We had a wonderful stay at this charming hotel! The staff went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. We arrived early during a rainstorm and not only did they make getting our room ready a priority, they also took our luggage to our room while we went out for a bite to eat. Every single employee we encountered was super friendly and helpful. We stayed in the adorable Marlene Dietrich room which was spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. It was a truly fabulous stay. The only bummer is that we didn’t get to spend any time in the beautiful courtyard because of the terrible weather. Thank you!!

My sister and I had the incredible pleasure of staying at the Prospect Hollywood over Oscar weekend. It was an added honor that we were the hotel's very first guests.

Before we even stepped foot into the hotel, the General Manager (Nate) made me feel so welcome. We shared a quick phone call, in which I was advised on check-in and parking accomodations. Nate said he looked forward to having me. I felt reassured, as I'm not well traveled, that I'd made a great choice.

Walking into the Prospect was like stepping into another world. Being that it was opening weekend, post hotel renovation, there was a real excitement and magic in the air. The staff was primed and ready to do what they do best. The atmosphere is old Hollywood glamour, with a modern style that big studio stars of yesterday would probably mistake for a movie set. This hotel is dripping with gorgeous details. None of which feel pretentious or posed. Every piece of the decor is a piece of candy, for you to unwrap and enjoy. The 'candyman' in this case was the incomparable Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who happened to be present when I arrived. What an absolute treat to have been able to share my appreciation personally with him.

The Prospect will thrive on it's two most prominent strengths. The warm and outstanding hospitality from the staff. And the unmistakable feeling of Hollywood glamour & history that's literally displayed in each customized room - named and designed for the movie stars who lived on the hills behind the hotel, during their studio contracts.

With all my heart, I want to thank Nate and Jason for everything they did to make our accomodations an unexpected high point of a great weekend in L.A. I encourage all you readers out there, near and far, to put the Prospect Hollywood at the top of your list, when planning a trip to LaLa Land. XO

I didn't know what to expect with this hotel but I was pleasantly surprised. The person at the front was very helpful and friendly when checking in. The rooms are all themed to different old Hollywood actors, we ended up staying in the James Dean room. The room was very spacious and clean. There is street parking that's very hard to actually get a parking spot but they have a private valet where your car is safely in the back. It is RIGHT off of the Walk of Fame and walking distance to the Chinese theater. It's also not too far from the popular Hollywood spots. Would absolutely recommend.

My wife and I stayed at the Prospect recently and were frustrated by our experience. Mystery charges appeared and disappeared on our credit card throughout the week but everything was explained after check out but when we asked during our stay about the charges, we were told 3 different answers by three different people. The hotel advertises street parking but that is barely an option. The real options are paid parking at the hotel or a garage two blocks away, which was never mentioned by the staff so that you would park with them. One night of our stay, music was blaring all night in the courtyard. It turned out not to be a guest but the hotel! The walls are also paper thin and we could hear everything in the rooms next to us and every footstep above us. The covid protocols were never made clear such as if you want your room cleaned. And lastly, their advertised "pastry breakfast" was the same bland croissant every day. For the price and promised experience, I think the Prospect can do a lot better.

Thank you for sharing your constructive feedback. It was our pleasure to welcome you and your wife for a stay; however, we're disappointed that certain aspects of your visit didn't meet your expectations. Please accept our apologies for any billing issues, and we encourage you to reach out to us offline should you have any outstanding questions on your account charges. We enjoyed offering you complimentary fresh baked goods from the local bakery Tartine, but we're sorry it wasn't what you had hoped it would be. Our team will discuss your comments internally and work to improve our communications with parking. Next time you are in the area, we hope to have another opportunity to change your perceptions.

Booked this hotel last minute on our way to LA with our dog. We didn’t see any reviews, but the photos were gorgeous and the location perfect for what we needed. So we took a gamble and it paid off big time. This place is gorgeous, the staff ready to help whenever needed, and the location is perfect for hikes, restaurants, and general exploration. Very dog friendly too. I imagine the cost and availability will change significantly as more people get to experience this place so go while you still can!

The rooms are thoughtfully decorated and themed after old school Hollywood stars, theme music greets you upon entering the room, the mini bar is hardly mini, and the sheets, towels, and robes are all very comfortable. The area was surprisingly quiet considering it is only half a mile from Hollywood Blvd. The staff were very kind and accommodating, the patio has a wonderful vibe, and the morning pastry, coffee, and green juice offerings are unrivaled. We will definitely be back.

I don't give out high praise on hotels often, but The Prospect Hollywood deserves it. Nestled in the heart of Hollywood, this boutique hotel exudes charm. There are many decorative details in the rooms that are really thoughtful touches.The staff were incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful. Alex in particular was amazing. I absolutely love this place!
