This hotel apartment was built in the early 1900’s and acquired by the late Estelle Essex, an actress and close friend and confidant of the first female cinema super star of silent movies, Mary Pickford, the first actor to own her own production company. It has been said that Estelle Essex acquired this place so she could be close to her friend Mary, who had just bought a building in the mid-Wilshire area.

This hotel apartment was built before City Hall, going back to when Wilshire Boulevard was a string of cornfields. The rear building was originally a carriage house and has since been transformed into hotel garden apartments.

Legend has it that travelers on their way across California to the Pacific Coast would stop here, to rest themselves and their horses before continuing on their journey to the Pacific Coast. They would house their buggies and horses at the rear of the property, in the carriage house. Coachmen would stay above the carriage house, so they could attend to the horses. The narrow driveway along the east side of the building was just wide enough for a horse drawn carriage, and the jacuzzi and picnic area was originally used for the turn-around and bridling of horses.

This lovely and charming place, with its bright yellow awnings, is a restored jewel-box landmark building, which won a community Beautification Award and Certificate of Appreciation.

Judy Garland Hotel Apartment

Very welcoming, the description fits very well to the apartment, the place is quiet, there is a 3 minute walk from the metro, which are ready to see it all. There is a jacuzzi and barbecue grills available to end a long day of sightseeing, what more! I would definitely go back if I pass by!

Mae West Hotel Apartment

Hello, We have a pleasant stay in the apartment MAE WEST HOTEL! Welcoming and very friendly staff. One small complaint ... The windows do not open. Apart from a small corner. And you should know that the apartment is on the side of a restaurant karaoke. And it is very very noisy.

The W.C. Fields Hotel Apartment

Nice, quite and clean apartment with excellent connection to the public transportation in LA.
We found the apartment as announced at the Wimdu site.
We liked the Hollywood motto of the hotel and the posters and photographs of W.C.Fields in our apartment. Nice communication before our stay, uncomplicated check-in and check out, professional introduction by Don, the manager.
We suggest the Essex Manor to all who look for a headquarters for the discovery of Los Angeles.

The W.C. Fields Hotel Apartment

4 of us stayed here for our first trip to LA. And for the price we paid it was absolutely worth it. We were surprised to see how new the appliances were and how clean the place was. Extra clean sheets, tons of clean towels available right in the apartment for use. Super clean kitchen and appliances. A very well maintained place. There was free parking in a gated area by the building, which was great. The extra fun part is that there was a hot tub for my friends and I to chill in after a long day of touring the city. Great location, easy to drive to our destinations within the city.
We are planning to stay here again for sure.
