The hotel is very good and I will stay there again. The stuff was excellent, Jason with his local knowledge help us out to fine the best places to visit in LA. The hotel provides you with bottle water and pastries and coffee in the mornings all for free. You must try a restaurant that you cook your own food... More

Pretty nice location in K-Town, close to Wilshire and many restaurants. Actually a short walk to where the Brown Derby used to be. Uber from USC was 20 minutes and about $7. Parking was free and I had no problem parking when arriving before 7pm or leaving after 9am. At other times you will encounter cars double parked. My room... More

To start off on the bright side, the hotel had free parking. Also, checking-in and out were super easy. Those are the only positives that I can think of. First, of all the hotel is more like a motel. The halls smell like mold (almost reminds me of old college dorms) and some of the room doors weren't even sealed... More

I loved the quirkiness of this place. When we tried to check in early the front desk quickly reminded me we were early, I understand I've been up traveling a million hours and am exhausted. I'm just checking. After her quick rebuff she told me my rooms were ready. Yeah! The rooms were large and beds were very comfy. We... More

Great place to stay...if you are looking for a hotel that has ambience and class ..look no further. ..you will not be disappointed. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

Nice hotel and rooms, ours had a "view" of the atrium. Staff was very nice. My only comment would be they need some sort of artwork on the all white walls. I would stay here again, overall good stay. Thumbs up.

I recently stayed three nights at this hotel on a business trip. The hotel is ok: free parking works, comfortable bed, largish room, working bathroom, internet, mostly functional TV. Whether from a business or a leisure standpoint I don't view the hotel as meeting standards typically expected of three stars (though it may meet the three-star rating in a literal... More

I had several meetings all across LA and I found this hotel was quite well located. 10 minutes from downtown and close to some great restaurants in Korea town. The room was large and quite well appointed. I quite liked the room decor, funky without being tacky and the staff was quite warm. I would be happy to stay here... More

Had a wonderful time at this hotel. Not only was it within distance of everything that we wanted to see. We also enjoyed the customer service. The hotel gave me a phone # to text whenever I needed anything or had a question about food and places around the area.
