Getting Here

Directions to the
Hollywood Hotel

Whether it’s by rapid transit or by car, getting to the Hollywood Hotel 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 the hotel.

Rental Cars

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.

Ride Sharing

Two rideshare companies, Prime Time Shuttle and Super Shuttle, operate out of LAX and are authorized to serve all Southern California counties. These vans pick up passengers on the Lower/Arrival Level islands in front of each terminal under the orange sign “Shared Ride Vans.”


You can always take a cab to Hollywood Hotel. Contact Yellow Cab Co., serving the Los Angeles area, at (877) 733-3305.
