DO NOT BRING YOUR FAMILY HERE! I would not even walk on that carpet in my socks!! This hotel, if you can call it that, looks like a slum created for a hollywood set. Homeless people and gangbangers abound this area. Carpets are disgusting, bathrooms are worse, and an autopsy room would smell better than these rooms. It's the first... More

The place is horrible! The rooms are disgusting, tiny and loud. They are doing construction throughout the entire place so all you hear are jack hammers and drills. We also got stuck in the elevator. All that joy for $140 a night. Run not walk away from here!

I have visited on July - 2015. Neighbourhood is very bad. You feel as you are in Mexico instead of L.A. Regarding Hotel conditions, Dirty & old rooms, Poor breakfast, Ultra Slow internet (even at lobby), At shower, cold water is broken, you just have boiling water.

The place itself: falling off. Anything average or fine stops at the moment you leave the lobby. The room and isles are like from ages ago and never got updated. The room is big though with good LA downtown city view. However all the amenties are, again, worn off and desperately in need of updating. It's a waste to have... More

This hotel is very clean and tidy it may be Downtown, however its within walking distance to the subway which will take you all the way up to places such as The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Universal City and plenty of other places. Great hotel for the cost.

They were not upfront about charges. They shut off the water for an entire day. Those with reservations should have been notified ahead of time about the water and not at check in. They put us in a room that was already occupied. There were holes on the walls and ceilings covered by cardboard. The phone in the room was... More

Dear I t, Thanks for taking the time to review The Mayfair Hotel on TripAdvisor.com. I'm sorry to hear that you had so many problems during your stay with us. I know that having the water shut off while you're in a hotel is less than ideal. It is one of the challenges that we are having while upgrading all... More

I really enjoyed my stay while at the hotel. The main purpose for my stay was for romantic getaway weekend in LA. I was interested in finding an old building because i like the appeal and romanticism of the old architecture. The hotel served its purpose. I was on cloud 9 with the love of my life in the beautiful... More

Lots of noise. Hotel is renovated and there dust workers pipes all over the place. Location ok. Breakfast ok. Charges per night are not standard they fluctuate. Rude front desk lady manager. Slow and apathetic breakfast lady
