Los Angeles City Council unanimously rejected two appeals Tuesday that were intended to stop development of the planned eight-story Tommie Hotel in Hollywood.

The city’s planning commission had already approved the project but opponents complained the hotel would have too many rooms and draw a rowdy crowd to the neighborhood, Curbed reported.

The micro hotel, on Selma Avenue between Wilcox and Schraeder, is being developed by Five Chairs, a subsidiary of Hollywood International Regional Center (HIRC). It’s part of the new Tommie brand of micro hotels launched by HIRC partner Two Roads Hospitality, according to Curbed.

Two entities, Sunset Landmark Investment LLC and local union Unite Here Local, both filed separate appeals against the development.

The project, which still expected to finish in 2018, can now proceed. [Curbed]Subrina Hudson
