I liked this hotel. Nice decor, Awesome location, the parking is sparse but management does a great job of getting cars situated. I loved the lounge area (as pictured) will definitely be coming back to visit!

Never sure what to expect from an independent but this was beyond my expectations. Very nice decor and facilities. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Great area to walk and shop in Mid-Wilshire. Within walking distance to many highly lauded eateries.

Chose this spot due to its excellent proximity to some tourist destinations we were interested in. The hotel staff was exemplary, rooms clean (if not a bit spartan), and location great. If you love Korean food or going to the Wiltern theater, this is for you. We stayed 3 nights and were able to easily hit La Brea tarpits, natural... More

I called down soon after to find out if there was a vending machine with ice and water. he brought it straight up to my room ! what customer service. I hope his boss reads this review and... More

On arrival the lady was a little rude. We understand that we arrived early from another country, and we would of been happy to leave our bags until check-in time, we were allowed our room early but under her breath she said "check in isn't until 3pm" in a really rude tone. Then we were told that the door locks... More

I have stayed here the last 4 times i've been to LA. Great price and great location,pretty much a decent priced taxi ride to any where in LA. The first time my wife and i stayed here it was a little strange because we showed up late at night and the parking garage was closed. We called the hotel and... More

The place was spotless. I was concerned from previous reviews that it may be dirty... but I already booked it so I hoped for the Best. I got it. It was modern and cute as well as spacious. It was close to downtown and every place was like 6 bucks to Uber it. Number one best thing was the free... More

I recently came to visit to my nephew who lives in Koreatown, and was fortunate enough to stumble upon the Shelter Hotel. I was thrilled to find this beautifully placed and appointed boutique, that is a real bargain with free parking, free wi-fi, and friendly attentive staff. Despite being located in the middle of a bustling, vital neighborhood, my room... More
