Whether it’s by rapid transit or by car, getting to the Hollywood Hotel Los Angeles is easy. The Vermont/Sunset station is located within walking distance, less than half a mile away, and metro buses stop directly in front of our hotel in Hollywood.


Approximately 40 rental car companies operate out of LAX, with vehicle rental sites located off the airport. Many of these rental car companies provide phone links inside or near the baggage claim areas on the Lower/Arrival Level of the terminals, so travelers can request a free shuttle pick up to reach the rental car sites. These are allowed to meet arriving customers under the purple sign “Rental Car Shuttles” on the Lower/Arrival level islands outside baggage claim. Take one to our hotel in Hollywood and arrive on your own time.
