From start to finish, and beyond, the staff (and in particular Chris who worked at reception when I checked in on 13th August 2014) were wonderfully helpful and service minded. Chris took plenty of time and effort to explain everything I asked about, from best seafood restaurants, to gyms, convention center, local transportation etc. I was particularly impressed with the...

I've stayed at some of the branded hotels surrounding the area before. It's a small little hotel but comfortable for a night or two. Not in a bad location either. They also offer access to the golds gym which is extremely cool if your looking for a good gym

I was in LA for one night only and booked this place last minute. It did the trick for 1 night but would not want to stay any longer. Rooms were clean but were also a little dingy. I was in town for business and I would not stay there again.

Needed a place to stay in downtown L.A. at the last minute and thought I'd take a chance on the O Hotel. (Saw some decent reviews online) Not only was the hotel clean and comfortable, it was a little gem in the middle of the city! Not flashy. Not super luxurious, but a great find. It's a boutique hotel that... More

I stayed at the O Hotel on a weekend. It is modern and chic in many respects and its green commitment is admirable. The lobby area is rather dark and not apparent when you enter the hotel from the street. Combined with the dim red lighting in the elevators and the dark hallways, the ambience is subdued, at best. The... More

Just be aware they will surcharge you if you want breakfast. Otherwise it's clean, modern and well located. It is also reasonably priced we paid $175 in May on a weekend. The Original Pantry cafe is a block away - skip the breakfast !

We had a very comfortable stay here. Our room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. On the down side not many rooms have views but despite the wall of the parking station next door being just metres from our window the room felt light and airy. Great value given the location, and that same parking station was extremely convenient.

My boyfriend and I stayed here two weeks ago so we could walk to the LA Beer Fest and be close to the Shrine Auditorium. The hotel was super clean and modern. Parking is next door in a parking structure for about $16 (I think the hotel website tells you it's $11). They had a cool restaurant downstairs, free wifi,... More

I was at the O for a week for work. We were given several hotel options with discounted rates. I selected the O because it looked like a fantastic, chic, boutique hotel in downtown LA. While the staff was nice and the location convenient, the room was below an acceptable standard. Everyone else I know who chose the O also... More
