About 20 miles away.
I recently returned from LA and a stay at the Ritz LA. Without a doubt one of my favorite hotels in the US. However this hotel is in the heart of LA in an area known as LA Live by the Staples Center. The Hollywood sign would be approximately 30 minutes away above Beverly Hills and Hollywood. There are many hotels much closer to the sign but if you get too close you won't see it well. The four seasons at the end of Rodeo Drive is also a great hotel as well as the Beverly Hilton which are both in the heart of Beverly Hills near many great and famous restaurants.
We went to Hollywood studios and passed the sign about 15 minutes from the hotel
Not particularly. If you stay in a high room facing the north side then you may have a chance. Or if you have club room access you definitely can see it but it’s definitely far in the distance. Would suggest staying in Hollywood if you want a hotel to see the sign closer. Best idea is going up to Griffith Observatory great views.
