Although not quite the horror show that some guests have experienced. I did not enjoy my stay in this hotel. I got barely any sleep, thanks to the location of the hotel next to a few night clubs. There were hardly any places to get food the next morning, and the hotel's decor was like something from the 1960s, and... More

Judging by the reviews we read prior to our stay, we were a little nervous about our stay here. As soon as we arrived, checked in and got to our room - these nerves were gone. All the staff were really friendly, always greeting you as you come and go and were more than happy to book taxis, transfers and... More

The hotel is a great value of money. The location is great and is near public transportation. I really liked the Downtown area and it was very close from a lot of good restaurants. For those on budget, this will be great hotel.

If you think you are getting a room like the picture shown, you would be disappointed. The room is about 200 square feet. There is only room for a small chair. The shower and sink is tiny and inconvenient. There is no pots and pans or glasses and cups even though there are two stove tops and fridge. The front... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and were very happy with everything about the hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and the room was fine. It's only a 3 minute walk to the subway. We went to Hollywood from the local subway station for less than $2 each. There are quite a few places to... More

The downstairs of the hotel makes you think to are entering this nice, maybe even upscale hotel. However.... As soon as you enter you room you will be surprised. The carpets were dirty, the AC/Heat was broken (thank god we were here in November), the room had only one light bulb that was working, no amenities in the bathroom (just... More

Just terrible. The whole place vibrates from the nightclub underneath. The windows shake. I had to take the elements out and put on the ground. elements? Why. There are no pots or pans. Coffee machine? A jug would have done the job, not a water heater thing. Not one second of sleep. They gave me a free breakfast voucher for... More

I don't care how reasonable of a rate you get, don't stay here!! It was the chosen hotel for the end of my trek america trip, so we ended up booking for 3 nights. Bad idea. It's dilapidated, dirty and grubby. The room was disgraceful, and they gave us a slightly better one after we complained. The first one wasn't... More

This hotel has the worse service possible. There is cockroaches in the bathrooms. There is noise all night from the street and the clubs.... The valet hit my car and caused a $4500 damage. The manager was very rude and refused to take responsibility. DO NOT stay at this hotel even if they offer a low rate.

So this review is my own personal experience and I know we all have our own. So myself and my friend stayed in the hotel for four days before we started traveling. After we checked in I asked if I could use the stairs and the guy behind the counter said *No* and that it was for emergency only so... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
