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

Avery dary entry and registration. Others labeled it a vampire hotel. Very small rooms with no closet but a "cubbie hole" to hang my suits up. Bathroom so small that I had to turn side ways to shave and the lighting was not very good in front of the mirror. The towels were the best ever. In my opinion this... More

I stayed here one night on a business trip. The rooms are small, but they are comfortable. The size is just fine for one or two people. The bathroom is also small, but how much space does one really need? I really liked the décor. I loved the bed- so soft! My room was very quiet. The staff were very... More
