Stayed here for three nights last week. And I would definitely stay here again. Walking distance to the LACMA, Tar Pits, LA Farmers Market, The Grove. I parked (on the street) when I got there, only had to move my car once (for street cleaning). Yes, there's "only" street parking, but you get a tag to let you not have... More

This is the second time I've stayed here (last time was in December) and had a great stay both times. The staff remembered me from last time (or at least pretended to; the effort is always appreciated when you've been on the road) and were friendly and helpful. This time I was in (I think) room 220, top floor at... More

We enjoyed our visit. It was close to LACMA and La Brea Tar Pits, the major point of our visit. The staff were attentive to our needs. We found some neighborhood pubs with good food and friendly patrons. We felt safe walking in the area and met locals who were interesting and entertaining. Getting to the hotel by taxi from... More

Hotel is 2 blocks from LACMA (purpose of our trip) in a nice neighborhood. Lobby is comfy and nice. Staff at desk friendly and helpful. Our two double bed room was very spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable and pillows were comfortably soft. Room has a separate sink from the bathroom with tub and shower as well as another sink... More

We've stayed here before, we still love this hotel and will stay again when we come back next year, but there are some cleaning issues that we did not notice before. I would say that it was impeccable in the past, but there is dust on baseboards, there was trash under our bed, also the continental breakfast was not kept... More

This hotel is 2 minutes from Cedar Sinai Hospital. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are large and clean. The TV is a huge flat panel. The room has a fridge and air conditioning. The front desk is always kind and helpful. The only thing missing is a hair dryer. But no big deal. Nice neighborhood and well kept.

First visit to LA and consider ourselves luck to pick this hotel. Nothing is ever perfect but if you tick of the important things like location, nice clean/comfortable room, value for money and really helpful staff you can't go wrong. You have to park in the streets so it can be pot luck but if you are out early (and... More

the hotel has no parking. you get a tag to park on the street in the same block as the hotel. it's a real pain as there are just no spaces at night. complicating the problem is the restricted parking for street cleaning two nights a week. there is no dedicated handicap parking anywhere nearby. the only handicap ramp can't...

The room in this hotel was DIRTY. The bathroom had not been cleaned from the other guests, there was hair on the floor and the glasses has some kind of gross stuff in them. We had booked a queen room, they assigned us to a double bed. They stated they didn't have any rooms available. We slept uncomfortably. The staff... More
