Good start to the day. Got up on time and successfully worked how to use public transport without looking like a knob/tourist. I got to the Roosevelt Hotel at about 7:45 ready and raring to catch the tour bus to Universal Studios for the day.

TravelPod Member ReviewsDunes Inn - Sunset Los Angeles
Great place to stay, excellent value, the rooms are clean and tidy 2 comfortable queens. The staff are wonderful very helpful and happy. The proximity to the sights of Hollywood is great. Our only complaint if any would be no safe in the room to secure passports. Trip advisor was spot on with this one !!!!!
