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

When I first read the reviews of the hotel, had a bit of trepidation around booking it. But based on the location, the rate, and the responsiveness of the team at the hotel, off I went. I stayed for 5 nights in December, and could not fault the hotel or the service. Living in Australia, I had online shopping delivered... More

Booked a room at the O Hotel because I was attending a holiday party there. The front desk staff was very pleasant. When we got to our room, however, I was very disappointed. First thing I noticed was something stuck on the tile floor outside of the bathroom. Looks like someone sneezed and no one cleaned it. Sorry for the... More

This hotel is very well situated to the theatres on Broadway and the nightclubs that surround the area which is a huge draw along with the affordable rate. Javi at the front desk was very helpful. The room décor is minimal but acceptable. The room appeared to be about half the size of a standard hotel room. The view was... More

Stayed here for a few nights, as I was meeting up with a friend that lives in the neighborhood and wanted to avoid expensive taxi trips every night. Not to impressed at first, but kind of grows on you... Room was nice and clean - I booked a King Size with city view. (not as if Flower St and IHOP... 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.
