I can see why this hotel gets mixed reviews. What is good is the location, the price, the friendly and helpful staff and the nicely appointed room. What is not so good is the $14 mandatory extra charge, the downright spartan breakfast, and the tiny bathrooms with little privacy. But what really got me was the claustrophobic room. I had... More

Upon arrival I reminded the staff about my request for a room with no goose down as I am extremely allergic to the feathers. The manager had housekeeping remove the pillows believing that would solve the problem. It did not. At that point I asked Victor and Chris to book me a room in another hotel. . No only did... More

We were in downtown LA for a weekend conference and wanted a small hotel with personal service that was walking distance from LAlive. This hotel is affordable, clean and everyone was friendly. We had a situation that was resolved in a way that was entirely excellent. We were able to resolve it quickly with each interaction leaving us feeling great... More

This hotel was pretty decent for what it was. The room was clean and they gave me an upgrade from a windowless room to a windowed room, and the tripadvisor photos were relatively accurate. I didn't get a chance to eat at the restaurant, but next time I'll try to get a beer. There is a $14 a day "resort... More

I stayed here for business one night while in DTLA earlier this month. I usually stay at Hilton hotels due to loyalty, but my local colleague recommended the O and since the price was reasonable I bit. I haven't been to DTLA in many a moon, it was a treat to stay downtown for that reason alone. I enjoyed the... More

On the plus side, decent sized rooms and a comfortable bed, which is what you want. Lighting could haven been better for someone using it as a base to work from. On the downside a number of small niggles that detracted. First is the $14 a day service charge which covers a very basic breakfast and bottled water in the... More

I was looking for a hotel close to Staples Center and LA Live for under $200/night with reasonably parking rates. I chose the O Hotel, despite the recent negative reviews and was pleasantly surprised with the property and left very happy with our stay. We booked a "City View" king room for two nights and despite being concerned about the... More

I had to stay for four nights since I had booked already to attend a conference in LA. Although I was in level 5 and had asked for a quiet room, but I could not get a good night sleep even for one night. It was a nightmare. There was a noisy bar downstairs which kept me up until 2-3... More

If you book this hotel, please cancel it. They have hidden charge which is 14 dollars a day. (Booking sites never notice about this additional cost.) You cannot refuse to pay it, you have to. But, if you try to cancel when you check in for this charge, you have to pay for penalty!!! Amazing! This hotel explain this hidden... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
