It was a good comfortable hotel, it's kind of old, but really nice. The rooms are wide and equipped, with a refrigerator, freezer and microwave. Big and comfortable beds. Clean. The guy at the front desk at the chekin wasn't helpfull, but the one in the tourism desk was really helpfull and friendly.

We managed to book this hotel through the daily deal on expedia so it was only $55 a night. At that price I cannot complain. However if I were to pay more, I certainly would! We could see that it used to be a grand hotel and the location is smack dab in the center of town. As it was,... More

I had to find a room last minute and most reasonably priced hotels in the area were booked, so I tried this one. Yuck! I almost left not caring if I lost the $100 or so bucks, but stuck it out. The carpet was only vacuumed in the area towards the door. On the other side of the bed, the... More

I booked the room online after reading reviews that suggested not walking in the neighborhood after dark. But not only is this a clean place with a lovely old-LA lobby and great rates for its location, I walked back from my convention at the Bonaventure late evenings (around 9 pm) alone with no problem. Just walk across the Harbor Freeway... More

While the Historic Mayfair is an older hotel, it is in great condition. One should not expect five star illustrious appointments, but a very comfortable and satisfying stay. The bathrooms are quite small and somewhat inconvenient but you can make do. I imagine when built the hotel had shared toilets and baths as in many older boutique hotels. I further... More

Very disappointed with this hotel. I previously left a more positive review, but took it down as I spent far too long contacting this hotel about an issue and I wanted this review to show how we have been treated since staying there around six weeks ago. My mother bought my boyfriend a really nice new business shirt for Christmas,... More

Dear JodyTD, please let me apologize for the problems you encountered in retrieving your lost shirt. It never should have been so difficult to get information about the lost item.

Super convenient location in downtown LA, only four blocks from the Metro line which connects you to most of LA. Friendly, knowledgeable staff directed us to dining options (great Thai food one block down, a plethora of dining options at the new 7th and Fig outdoor "mall") and walking tours (MOCA, City Hall, Central Market, Jewelry District).
