Always good buys in this area if they have what you're looking for. Lots of garments focused on Latin influence.

Many shops, many things to look around. But, the blocks are full of trashes and unpleasant things going on. The City should help the homeless people out and stay them in a safer place. Not a good situation they are in at all.

This is the 2nd time I have been to Santee Alley. Took my daughters and granddaughter on a weekend this time and it was so crowded you could hardly move but it was fun to have the experience and my granddaughter found lots of bargains. Next time we will do the separate areas of the things we are interested in... More

I read the reviews before heading to the Fashion District to look for a couple of Sport Coats. Not the greatest neighborhood, but no worse than many parts of any big city. Parking was an experience, the parking garage was insane. Cars parked everywhere, some in spaces, some not. There were attendants on each floor to move things around to... More

Fashion District is subtle, it's fashion OVERLOAD!! I needed a full day 9-5 here! There was a lot to see, a lot of noise, and a frenzy of things for sale. We loved the atmosphere! Looking forward to going again!

How can anyone possibly stop in this area?....the most horrific homeless situation I have ever seen. There is no bargain here that's worth risking your life for!

Cheap trashy junk. Booth after booth of the same items. Nothing what I had expected-higher end items at bargain prices.

There so much to see and buy. This place got all types of clothes, shoes, and jewels. Weekends are pretty busy and it can be hard to find parking and restrooms.

My husband and I were looking for casual outfits and dress suits. Los Angeles Street is the place to go to to find quality suits, but the stores are intermixed with cheaper goods. Know your brands, and check out the quality. A $130 men's suit, can look like a $130 men's suit on. Negotiate prices. If you leave for a... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
