Stay here if you are easy going and are happy with clean, modern, very quiet rooms. Close to lots of great restaurants and the fashion district! Ping pong is fun! Go to Perch, roof top bar one night!! walking distance.

I came to Downtown Los Angeles for a convention, and am so glad I found the Stay Hotel. Usually, for business trips I stay at mid price hotels like Holiday Inn, or Courtyard Marriott. I was surprised at the high rates for hotels near LA Live (Staples Center) area, ranging $270-$440per night. Stay was the most affordable $89 per night.... More

This hotel/hostel had once been a grand place to stay in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The reception area was beautiful, with lots of marble and mirrors. WIFI was available and easily accessed. Our room was basic, but clean, with an unusual chair in the shape of a hand. We had shared facilities. We could not get access to... More

It was a good stay overall. Thought the rooms could be more spacious. Great for people who are just in and out of the hotel. Basically leave in the morning and come back at night to sleep. I thought it was a good place for small groups checking in.

This place was easy to afford for a couple of us young adults to stay here for a few nights. The rooms were simple, not much to them, but when you're visiting a new city you don't spend much time at all in the room. It felt like a safe place to stay in the Downtown area. There are some... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend. We played chess, ping pong and had a go at a video game, all for free. We also ate free popcorn but didn't watch the movie that was playing. The people were friendly and the security guard recommended a place to go and watch the clippers game. The room was simple and we slept... More

We had a really enjoyable stay at this hotel. I think it's great value for the price, free breakfast, movies, playstation 3 and table tennis! We stayed for one night and checked out the surrounding area a bit. You'll find some really interesting old theaters two blocks away.
