The front of the hotel you see is not a current picture. It is run down in side and out. Unless you are less than 5 feet tall and under 100 lbs, the so called queen bed will not accomodate you. All the positive reviews you are reading are from hotel employees. Please take my advice, the hotel is horrible.... More

Dear Mamacita2, thank you for taking your valuable time to share your recent stay. Certainly we are disappointed in your very negative review of our hotel. Let me assure you that we have never self posted any reviews. Trip Advisor has programs in place that prevent that from happening. The Mayfair is an older hotel. However we are only 60... More

We stayed here twice, at the start and end of the trip. First room was okay, with a great view, clean. But the second room was a shoebox and the shower was very dangerous - there was a 'step' in the shower making it very easy to slip over. My advice to any traveller would be to not stay in... More

Fantastic value for LA close to subway easy to get around from here. Staff wonderful so helpful. Concierges are gems so good. Don't let older guy on desk ring a cab must be a mate of his and we were ripped off. Not a yellow cab but a black car. Only let concierge order cabs insist. Clean, large rooms we... More

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
