I stayed here because of its close proximity to UCLA. Traffic in LA is really bad (especially the 405 freeway) so proximity to where you'd want to go is a must. We reserved a standard room with a king size bed but what we got was like a suite. The living room was big. The room has two TVs plus kitchen and a refrigerator and a microwave. A walk-in closet was equipped with a safe. The bed was extremely comfortable. These positive have more than made up its slow internet connection and so so breakfast (Starbucks and Peets are only one block away).

Unless you need to stay at this exact location keep looking - you'll better and cheaper. Key cards repeatedly failing, stale breakfast offerings, car parking so tight I pulled a muscle squeezing out of my car, indifferent weary staff. Overall the actual value was nearer $68 not the $168 I was charged. Buyer beware!

I recently stayed at the Royal Palace Westwood and was delightfully surprised by the quality of room they provided.

At first glance the exterior, entrance, and hallways suggest that the rooms would be some kind of typical two or three star accommodation. You know what I mean - that dated 90s cabinetry, funky geometric coloured bedding, and mattresses that you could pretend to surf on.

Boy was I surprised. I ended up booking here for a few nights while I sorted out housing for a summer course at UCLA. Previously I had been put up at the neighbouring Claremont hotel, which rings in at about half the price as the Royal Palace. The Claremont was full so I went in search of something nearby that wasn't outrageously priced and here I stayed.

For $150 a night I received a room that I would put easily on par with something like a Westin or Sheraton. The room was wonderfully appointed (and I assume recently renovated) with fantastic beds. Wow, wow, wow is all I can say. The bed had a fantastic pillow top mattress, crisp white linens, lots of pillows, and a properly firm boudoir pillow that aided a great deal in bedtime studying. The shower head was a tad low but whatever. That's a minor point next to the importance of a good sleep.

The only downside of the stay was the service at the front desk. The staff here ranged from indifferent to downright surly. Perhaps they've had to deal with one too many annoying guests over the year but I certainly didn't do anything to ask for attitude (I hope). Despite this they were accommodating in allowing a late checkout while I sorted things out in LA.

The 'highspeed' internet was also rather spotty so be ready for access dropping in and out during you stay.

A perfect place for varying budgets. Catty corner to the Armand Hammer Museum and near Wilshire Blvd. & many tourist sites. Clean, large rooms, utterly quiet. Older decor means rooms are reasonably priced for LA . Very close to Trader Joe's, restaurants, coffee shops. Adequate breakfast room, suites have kitchens-- so handy for families-- and 2 TV's. They don't reserve blocks of rooms for big groups, so we reserved 10 individually. Maids are terrific! Desk clerks worked hard for our confusing mass arrival. It was exactly as I thought it would be from the website and all of us were happy with it. Being close to Wilshire makes driving easier than usual.

Room Tip: Get mini suite for more luxury and not much more $

The Royal Palace is clean with friendly staff. It has been refurbished with new furniture and TVs They serve all day coffee , juice and fruit. It is in an excellent location, just a short walk from UCLA and it's botanical garden.Within a short walking distance are high quality grocery stores, cafes and restaurants. It is also just minutes by car from Beverly Hills and Hollywood We really like it
