L. A. is a city of bi-coastal beings. Especially during pilot season, transplanted actors often find themselves stuffed into bland corporate housing at one of the Oakwoods—no wonder New Yorkers hate L. A. New B & B Cinema Suites is an alternative to cookie cutter living, charging even lower prices and offering a more central Fairfax location.
There’s a kitschy, eccentric feel to this house, which was once home to Greta Garbo, Gloria Swanson, Joan Crawford and Carole Lombard’s furrier. In fact, the space has previously been rented for a Murder Mystery party. Now what could be more Hollywood than that!
I've been putting talent up at Cinema Suites when they come in from out of town to work on some series. They love it much more than staying in a hotel, especially if they bring family along with them for any extended stay.
If you plan on staying in or around LA, Beverly Hills Hollywood, this is the place! Dianne knows everything on what's going on where to go, what to see!
Great place, will do it again and again!
This home is a piece of art! My only problem with writing a review for the Cinema Suites is that it is hard to give away one of my best travel secrets in Los Angeles. We stayed there for 3 nights out of a 15 day vacation and this place was the best. The feeling of a "real" Hollywood home is felt here. The whole house was at our disposal and I felt my self being a guest in a private home rather then staying in a bed and breakfast.
Dianne the inn keeper is half the experience as she is a "knows everyone in LA type of person" and she is always good for a story from her wild days on the town. The spirit of traveling is to experience new places and when you get under the "skin" of a destination that makes it perfect - and here you get that feeling.
