TWO OUT OF THREE There are three flagpoles over the front marquee of the Mayfair, with two flags flying, except in the photo on the webpage, which has three. This is emblematic. We stayed there for 10 days in July 2014. What’s right with this hotel: 1) Clean and reasonably spacious rooms, at least in the case of room 1018... More

This place can only be described as tired. It is barely fit for purpose, and gave us the impression that cleaners were not employed in this hotel. Chosen only for its location, my mother and I spent 5 nights out of 12 in LA here and it was pretty miserable. The room we were initially given had twin beds that... More

Dear Gladzy12, Thank you for taking time to give us feed back about your recent stay at the Mayfair Hotel. Yes we do have a few rooms that have twin size beds but that will all go away with our upcoming renovation. Our renovation starts in September and every room as well as the public space will be completely redone.... More

We travelled here as a family of four women arriving mid morning we were able to check in and then we decided to go sightseeing to keep us awake after our long flight. The concierge was very helpful, 7 Eleven next door and also a laundromat. To the left of the hotel was a Spanish speaking district which can be... More

Stay away from this hotel! Unless you have an emergency situation, I would not recommend this hotel. The hotel is extremely dated, and there were stains all over the floor in our room. It's worth it to pay a lil extra and stay at a nicer hotel. Don't be fooled by the 4 star reviews on here. Pros- AC, tv... More

I really didn't like this hotel, in fact we left before the second night of our reservation. It is cheap and you do get what you pay for but this was a bit much. The rug was dirty. Some people complained the headboards in their rooms were broken. We didn't have any. There were sheets on the bed without a... More

I only stayed one night here, and had an extremely small room..I could just enter the room and jump into bed (almost). The bath was small too with old utilities The positive side: - Great view over the city - Location reported to downtown and bus lines - Great & helpful personal.. - Tea and coffee in the room

The Historic Mayfair is in my opinion a good hotel, yes it is old and it may have lost some of it's class over the years. But it is a charming place never the less. The rooms are clean and the price is right. Breakfast is little expensive but then again I have had worse. It is in the middle... More

First impressions of the hotel are good with a retro styled lobby and building exteriors. The room that i got was not good. Though it gave a good view of the city from 10th floor, the wooden flooring was cracked and air conditioner was barely working. The bathrooms were just ok. With no fridge and microwave and no locker in... More
